Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I am a native Chinese speaker. I can speak five languages. I have years of languages (Chinese & English) teaching experience. I am certified to teach in public schools in China. I believe interaction and immersion are effective approaches to learn a new language. Learning a new language with a native speaker is ten times efficient than learning from language apps. Lessons are customized. Communicative language and Chinese culture would be prioritized while making lesson plans. To learn a new language, it's not simply about the language itself. The more you know about the culture, the better you appreciate the language.

About Guifang

I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese in 2009 and I founded my first summer camp in China in 2010. Students who had registered for my summe

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

Firstly, I speak standard Mandarin Chinese from North Eastern China, which is the same kind of pronunciation found in professional teaching material and stipulated by the People Republic of China. Secondly, I have over ten years experience teaching second language to students of all ages and proficiency levels, which includes preparing students to take the HSK. Thirdly, I earned a bachelors degree and teaching certificate in teaching English, which has given me the pedological and speaking skills to explain Chinese grammar and culture to beginning level Chinese speakers.

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.

Mastering fundamentals is extremely important when learning a language. This is especially true for Chinese. We'll first practice the basic sounds and tones. Then we'll learn practical travel Chinese--practicing simple conversations. Once you get your footing, we'll expand your vocabulary and understanding of grammar.

Online 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 communicat

"I recently had the pleasure of taking the FrostForward Online Introductory Mandarin course with Connor Frost. As a first time student of the language, it was imperative that I work with someone who was patient, and able to break down this difficult language in it’s most digestible form. Connor did not disappoint on either front. From the onset, it was clear that he was not only experienced, but well-versed in one of the world’s most difficult dialects (written and spoken). His fluidity made me more at ease and trusting of his instruction. I appreciate the obvious time he takes prepare in advance of each lesson, and the information he shares to help with independent study. I look forward to studying with Connor for some time to come!"

"Excellent teacher! My son, George (12), felt very comfortable with Guifang. My son had no prior experience with the Mandarin Chinese language, and Guifang was able to introduce him to the language in a manner that did not leave him feeling intimidated about trying something new. Guifang also supplied him with extra materials (video , quizlet, voice recorder) via email.She was easy to reach and very flexible on scheduling lessons. We plan on continuing to work with Guifang and would highly recommend her to other students. Highly impressed!"

"Ying is an excellent tutor. My 15 year old daughter who has been studying Mandarin since 4 years old needed help with formal essay writing and Ying went above and beyond to help guide her. Ying reviewed her essay before class and highlighted all the sentences that they would discuss during class. Ying gave advice on sentence structure, different ways to phrase something, punctuation and a whole lot more. She was very patient and clear with her explanations. Our daughter thought she was amazing. Also, she was very responsive and clear in her communication before the first class. I highly recommend Ying."
