I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese. Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences/ phrases and as time goes on, you'll be able to perfect your tones! I typically use practice books and have worksheets. I love working with students of all experience levels. Speaking is very important as much as reading/ recognizing characters. You'll be able to practice writing the characters the right way.

thank you very much
Sarah
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.

As a non-native Mandarin speaker, I understand the difficulties a native English speaker may face while learning Mandarin. The characters look difficult and the tones are intimidating, but if we break it down together, I can help you comfortably understand the ins and outs of Mandarin and get us speaking about various topics together in no time!
