Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I'm a Comparative Literature major at Colorado College. I'm bilingual, patient, and know how to encourage new language students.

About Yuexin

Hi! I am an undergraduate student at Colorado College, majoring in Comparative Literature and Music. I am from Shenzhen, China, and moved to the U.S. when I was 18.

I play the banjo, do all forms of arts, and have a never-dying crave for traveling. I lived in Brazil and Finland for a little while. I have a talent in learning new languages and am passionate about teaching them.

I have taught Chinese to people of all age. I specialize in teaching listening and speaking. If you would like to take lessons with me in person, then I am good at teaching reading and writing as well. My strength is in my patience for my students. I understand that learning a new language, especially Chinese, is not an overnight progress. As a language learner myself, I emphasize with the frustration, yet the excitement of learning the language and the cultu

re.

So trust me! Let yourself or your child be in good hands.

I'm really enjoying my lessons with Yuexin. She's very patient and is able to answer all my questions. She's also happy to customize the lesson to suit my interests; for example, we took some time to go over voice lines in a video game that were in Chinese and then work on the pronunciation and pinyin for them.

The textbook and workbook she had me get have been helpful, and I've been supplementing by practicing on my own using Duolingo. I think the combination has been really effective for learning the language. Yuexin has been great for correcting my pronunciation and teaching me how native speakers would actually speak and write.

Yuexin is an excellent Mandarin teacher for kids. My 8 year-old has started lessons and is progressing well. Yuexin researched and picked out a good textbook for kids. She is patient, clear, and easy to schedule with. We are happy!

I am an American born in Los Angeles, CA. I was trained by some of the best Chinese language teachers while at UC Berkeley for my undergraduate degree. I entered into the Chinese Bridge Competition held every year, and was the number one American, Chinese language speaker. I was sent to China where I competed against top talent in almost every other country in the world and took first prize that year. After winning this competition, I continued training at UCLA where I got my Masters in East Asian Studies, so I am also trained in Ancient Chinese. The UCLA newspaper had my story on the front page which can now be viewed online through a search. I have continued using Mandarin on a daily basis and know the ins-and-outs of learning this difficult language as an American English speaker.

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I was born in China and finished my ninth grade there. The school is quite prestigious in terms of academic level. I then finished high school in the United States and earned my Bachelor Degree in Chemistry and Violin Performance at Oberlin College and Conservatory in Ohio. My fluency in both languages will make learning Mandarin much easier and more fun.

About Jerry (Zheyang)

Hello! I am Jerry Xiong. I just graduated from Oberlin College and Conservatory with Bachelor Degrees in violin performance and chemistry. Currently, I am studying violin performance at USC Thornton School of Music.

Having been the concertmaster of both Oberlin Orchestra and the Colorado College Summer Music Festival Orchestra, I believe that classical music has always been a passion for me. Recent awards include winner of New Hampshire Philharmonic Orchestra Concerto Competition of 2014, Winner of Oberlin Conservatory Concerto Competition of 2017-18, and the semi-finalist of Ann and Charles Eisemann International Young Artist Competition of 2018. This year, I have been selected as one of the four concertmasters of the Thornton Symphony.

I believe that my experience and my passion for music will be able to help both improve one's techni

que as well as staying passionate about music. Having met numerous world's greatest violin pedagogues, being able to share my music with you is a treat for both you and me.

For my potential student who would like to learn Chinese, my fluency in both languages will be able to help you learn the language with fun and ease. Learning Chinese is not just learning a language, one will be able to feel the Chinese culture and the beauty of this language.

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

Hi, My name is Ching. I was born and raised in Taiwan, and fully educated in transitional Mandarin before moving to The United States. I have lived in the States since 2011. I can teach you basic transitional Mandarin characters writing, grammar, speaking, and learning useful daily conversations.

What makes me more beneficial for you compare to other Mandarin teachers? First of all, My English has almost no Chinese accent so you can understand better during the lesson. Second of all, I have Associated with mostly Americans which means I can Explain things much better than others. Last of all, I got good sense of humor and great personality that will make your experience even more fun.

About Ching

My first language is Mandarin, but I found a way to teach myself how to reduce my accent to almost none. Somebody might even think I was born in the States or moved to the States since I was little. Today, I am here to share my ways to help you how to sound more American, and help you to communicate with people better while living in the United States.
I also have experience teaching English speakers Mandarin. You will understand me very well because I don't have a thick Chinese accent. I can find the best way you help you learning Chinese as you need.

I am easy-going and fun to work with. We will have a lot of fun learning together!

About Angela

Dear future student,
Did you ever wish you could say more than nihaoma?
Does ni hao kai lan make you wish you could be fluent in Mandarin?
If so, let me know if you want to get started today in the basics of Mandarin.
Not only will you impress your mother, but you could impress your waiter and eventually tell jokes in Mandarin.
What are you waiting for?
Kuai xue ba!

"Only had one lesson so far but she's good with kids"
Ethan
"My son had a great first lesson with Guifang. She is so patient and she makes the lesson fun."
Girish Jambagi
"Lipeng is an amazing pianist and violinist artist herself, however she is an even more splendid teacher. She is so patient and encouraging with a adult st
udent(I). Her technique and attention to music detail is amazing. She encourages relaxed recitals for students to gain confidence in a larger setting without pressure. my friends were impressed with my development and progress all along the classes because I had a great teacher! Would highly recommend!!!!"
...
Alice
"This is the first time for us to use online tutoring and we booked a session on Friday for our daughter to speak to Guifang on the Sunday. It was really e
asy to communicate with Guifang to confirm the session and send her details of what needed to be covered during the session so she could prepare beforehand. Guifang is really knowledgeable, patient, easy to converse with, clear in her explanations and really helpful. Our daughter said Guifang was better than her teachers. So that's really high praise. We highly recommend Guifang as a Mandarin tutor and we love this online tutoring."

"Alina is wonderful. There's just no substitute for a professional teacher like her if you really want to learn a language. I think this is especially true
for a language that is as difficult and foreign (to an English speaker at least) as Mandarin. Thanks to Alina, I finally have gotten the hang of the tones and am learning the characters for real. I LOVE the textbook she teaches out of--it's part of a very thorough series of Chinese language-learning textbooks, the sort you would use in an actual class at a university or in an immersion program. In addition, she prepares pdfs which she sends me to supplement the textbook vocabulary/grammar. We're on chapter 6 now and I'm feeling very excited and motivated because after years of wanting to learn Mandarin and dabbling casually with various materials, I feel that I've finally begun to make progress.

Alina, in addition to being a great teacher, is also a very warm and considerate person. She won't make you feel pressured or uncomfortable if you aren't perfectly prepared for your lesson. She's also been very conscientious about sending materials, being on time for our lessons, and making sure that I understood all of the lesson material, even if it means going a little over the designated hour. I highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about learning Mandarin."

"HaiBo is a great teacher I have ever met. She was very responsive. She answered to all of my questions even when offline. She will listen to you and custo
mize the lessons to your needs. I would give her 10 stars if I have the option! :))"

"very pleasant ,professional and knowledgeable , in her teaching approach. highly recommended. I only wish, she was going to be in the states, a few more y
ears. to teach my daughter."

Kim
"HaiBo is very patient! I have been studying Chinese on my own for quite a while, but definitely need help with tones. She goes over and over them with m
e until she feels I've done them right! She is kind enough to put reviews of words, sentences, phrases in the form of flashcards on an app so I can review them over the course of the week. We have needed to reschedule several times and she has been flexible enough to do that for me, too! I have reviewed stuff I thought I knew and have learned new vocab, but most importantly, we have USED that vocab in sentences and I feel like I'm actually improving my spoken Chinese! In addition, I have been working on learning characters with HaiBo and I am surprised how many I know!"
