Profile-background-check Background Check

I grew up in China through High School and moved to American about 16 years ago. I am bilingual in Mandarin and English. I also live with my mom which I speak /text Mandarin with her everyday. I also don't have heavy accent (such as Beijing has very heavy "Er" accent when they speak). My accent is close to professional Chinese reporter.

I can practice conversational Chinese with you or teach you basic Chinese if you are a beginner. I can also help you with your Chinese homework, writing etc.

If you prefer me to prepare a lesson, I will use the best teaching books out there such as "Modern Mandarin Chinese Grammar: A Practical Guide” (Modern Grammars)" , “Fundamentals of Chinese Characters” (Yale University Press), “Niubi!: The Real Chinese You Were Never Taught in School”, etc. Or whichever text books that you prefer to use.

I am looking forward to meeting with you! We will have a a lot of fun and in no time you will speak like a legit Chinese!

Michelle is so patient and kind. She gives me help with my accent and the way I pronounce the words so that I sound more like a native speaker. I love her. She is so much fun. I'd recommend her to anybody.

I am experienced to teach both written and spoken Hindi . I can make classes fun and easy going and adjust the mood based on the students interest.
While learning Hindi they can also learn about the Indian cultural and the cooking style. This can be a complete class if someone is also interested about India or if the interest is in learning only language then that can also be achieved in a very simple easy going class

For each of them Roman finds themes interesting to talk about and write about. Grammar and other boring stuff are taken needed care of, but main emphasis of lessons are on free talk."
