Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I am a native speaker who comes from the north of China. I got my Mandarin Certificate level: Putonghua Class A back in China. I was a teacher for 3 years, my students' ages range from 3 - 18. Also, I've been having lessons with adults through skype for a long time. I believe I have my own methodologies to help people who want to learn Mandarin get improved. And you will enjoy using Mandarin.

About Momo

I've been teaching for years. I am very good at adapting to students' learning styles. I know students have different personalities and different learning styles. Therefore, knowing how to make a student get a first insight of interest in learning is very important. Let's explore how the amazing Ma

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.

Teaching has always been my passion. I have been teaching Mandarin for 10 years at various Language Institutes, and taught at private schools in Michigan for total of 5 years. With corporate client experience, I also have been working as a Mandarin instructor in a language company. There are many adult students with different levels who are currently learning Chinese from me. My success stems from enthusiasm, self-motivation, patient, creativity and the ability to communicate with students from diverse backgrounds. It is my goal to combine my range of experience with my ability to make the learning easy and fun.

I've had a great experience so far. Yiju is patient, enthusiastic, and fun. Her lessons are easy to get into and the time flies by really fast. She's very engaging on cultural topics, illustrates a variety of ways to say something, and is generally very organized and punctual. She has been very accommodating to my requests and helping me learn in a way that works for me. Since I had my own study materials before I started lessons with her, she has worked with me to practice the material I studied already. I would definitely recommend her.
Alexandria
Wonderful instructor. We look forward to continuing lessons later this year. She was very professional and made my 15 year old daughter comfortable with learning Chinese. She tailored the lessons to fit her aptitude. I would highly recommend her. She also met us at the local community center which was very helpful logistically.

Mandarin can be really challenging for most people. By using logic and the similarities with your native language, I can make it way easier for you to understand the grammar and use the language.
As a native Mandarin speaker, you'll have a great environment and full knowledge of the language from me.

About Sonia

I'm enthusiastic about teaching and sharing different culture to my students. Growing up in Asian culture makes me capable of telling the difference between western and eastern life styles. With more than 13 years of teaching experience, I have very solid teaching background and discover the easies

Oh geez! I've completely forgotten to write this for months now!

I've had Miss Sonia as a mandarin teacher since last August. She's incredibly patient and will do a lot of work on her own end to find useful materials for her pupils to help them grasp certain concepts.

I have a tendency to overload myself with work, school, and life duties, leaving not much time to study as I would like, and she's been very patient in that regard. Often incorporating "review" days that do, in fact, review key concepts, but always branch out into other concepts, leading to increased comprehension through repetition as well as further learning.

As we all know, actually learning a language requires a LOT of work and effort to step out of comfort zones, and my big problem is simply learning time management. Once I get that down, I'm positive I could advance quickly with her tutelage.

I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to understand the language and culture surrounding it. :D
Amanda
Sonia was concise and clear-I'm learning quickly from her.

Online 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.

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!

I bought the 10 lesson pack from him and I'm an incredibly happy purchaser at lesson 9. My wife is chinese, and Matt gives me great sayings to take back to her. She is always excited to see the results of our lessons. When I ask her to teach me something she says go ask Matt."
