Private Mandarin Teacher

Grew up in America (born in Taiwan) for over 13 years and native speaker of both English and Mandardin Chinese.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

If you plan to use Chinese at work, we can focus our lessons around dialogue and vocabulary that relates directly to your job or industry. If you are a student and want to improve your academic performance in Chinese, I can train you to utilize more efficient ways of studying and practicing. If you would like to gain exposure to or build a foundation in Mandarin Chinese, I can also help you accomplish this.

Our first lesson went well. My seven yr old daughter enjoyed the lesson. She even insisted on teaching me a few words later that day. We are looking forward to future lessons.

"Grace is fantastic. She speaks very clearly and works with you on each lesson at a very manageable pace. She is good at praising when you get things like pronunciation or tones correct, which is really helpful because they are difficult. She is also not afraid to stop you and have you repeat something if you botch it. I really enjoy my lessons."

"I have an English speaking 2nd grader who has been working with Grace for 4 weeks now. Carson is very comfortable in class with Grace. He is doing well. She even recommended a text book that I was completely unaware of. We have lived in China for the last 6 months and are now back in USA working with Grace to improve his basis. Carson 1st Lanuage is English. She is very patient."
