Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

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.

The teacher is good at explaining and does exercises that helps me actually understand the context. Sometimes things are hard, but at the end I always understand it, and get it.

Online Mandarin Chinese Teacher

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!

Hi, My name is Ching. I was born and raised in Taiwan, and fully educated in transitional Mandarin before moving to The United States. I have lived in the States since 2011. I can teach you basic transitional Mandarin characters writing, grammar, speaking, and learning useful daily conversations.

What makes me more beneficial for you compare to other Mandarin teachers? First of all, My English has almost no Chinese accent so you can understand better during the lesson. Second of all, I have Associated with mostly Americans which means I can Explain things much better than others. Last of all, I got good sense of humor and great personality that will make your experience even more fun.

About Ching

My first language is Mandarin, but I found a way to teach myself how to reduce my accent to almost none. Somebody might even think I was born in the States or moved to the States since I was little. Today, I am here to share my ways to help you how to sound more American, and help you to communicat

Mastering fundamentals is extremely important when learning a language. This is especially true for Chinese. We'll first practice the basic sounds and tones. Then we'll learn practical travel Chinese--practicing simple conversations. Once you get your footing, we'll expand your vocabulary and understanding of grammar.

"Lipeng is an amazing pianist and violinist artist herself, however she is an even more splendid teacher. She is so patient and encouraging with a adult student(I). 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! Would highly recommend!!!!"
