Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I grew up in America and China speaking Chinese with my parents and is how I'm fluent in conversation in Mandarin. My writing and reading is not nearly as good as a native, which is why I don't choose to teach advanced. I've perfected the art of self-ambition in language learning, as documented in a book that I have published. Within two years of Pepperdine University pursuing an Engineering Degree I have became proficient in German, French, and Russian while only taking one elementary French class. Not only do I teach the skills for language mastery, I also teach conversational skills to get you ahead of others.

About Edward

Engineering Major and have lived in three continents. I grew up speaking Mandarin and English, and my grandparents spoke Russian with me when I lived in China as a child. I grew up to be a strong language learner, being able to converse in about 8 languages. I have lived a year in Switzerla

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I'm a native Chinese speaker with not just my whole lifetime's experience of speaking Chinese, but also six years of student experience. My native tongue is actually Cantonese and I began learning mandarin at the age of 12. Now, seven years later, I can confidently speak Mandarin at a fluent level.

I not only offer lessons on speaking, grammar, and reading, but I also implement cultural learning as I believe that is just as important when it comes to learning Chinese. I can't wait to begin working with you!!

I'm a traditional Beijinger, I can only speak simple English. Most communication can only in Mandarin. If you want to experience pure Mandarin you can contact me. For me, this is not a place to educate others, but to make people from different countries understand China.

Language is only a tool, communication is the purpose.

"Miss HaiBo was extremely patient and understanding. We got to know a little about each other to establish rapport then she evaluated my current knowledge of Mandarin (very little) and then started working with me on a plan to move forward. We covered key areas including tones, the alphabet, and numbers - all in the first lesson!

Miss HaiBo followed up or lesson immediately with additional resources she prepared and suggested homework. It was truly a pleasure to meet and work with Miss HaiBo. I am looking forward to next week's lesson already."

"Matt is an incredible teacher and person in general. He understands so much about chinese and is able to easily communicate the lessons in a way that I can understand and practice between classes. 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."

"I had an amazing experience with Connor Frost on the trial lesson for the 'Online Introductory Mandarin' classes. I decided to take his classes right away. What I liked from him? Everything, but putting in words, he has a strong online methodology, he's Chinese-American (his English is native, for me it's like I'm learning Chinese and practicing my English at the same time), he's very professional, patient, friendly, and it's clear he has all expertise and tools to make anyone learn Mandarin. I'm having so much fun. I strongly recommend him. Try it, you're gonna love it. Thank you Connor."

"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."
