I understand the difficulties of learning English, especially when coming from a completely different language such as Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese. As I learn more about the Chinese language, I've learned how to break the communication and cultural barriers.

I'd love to help improve English speaking, writing, communication, and overall understanding of the English language, specifically tailored for native Chinese speakers.

I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. What are you interested in about Japan? History, travel, movie, music, anime, traditional entertainment, food or else? Think of learning not Japanese, but what you love through Japanese because what you love motivates you for learning the most.

One of my typical lesson styles is a situational dialogue. Let's have fun.

I teach at my place or a coffee shop if you would like to, or online.

"First lesson was good, although we had some technical difficulties using Skype -- probably my fault not Valentina's -- and ended up speaking by phone. Once we get that worked out, I expect to improve my conversational Italian, with special emphasis on conjugating verbs. So wonderful to speak with someone whose first language is Italian."
