If you plan to use Chinese at work, we can focus our lessons around dialogue and vocabulary that relates directly to your job or industry. If you are a student and want to improve your academic performance in Chinese, I can train you to utilize more efficient ways of studying and practicing. If you would like to gain exposure to or build a foundation in Mandarin Chinese, I can also help you accomplish this.

About Tammy
I am a native Chinese speaker with a BA in English and MBA in Global Management from Thunderbird. I worked as an English to Chinese translator for 2 years in the Ministry of Commerce in Beijing, and volunteered as an interpreter for the City of Austin. During graduate school, I was a Chinese tutor/language partner for a few of my classmates, all of whom made big progress in their fluency and pronunciation.

I am a native Chinese speaker. I can speak five languages. I have years of languages (Chinese & English) teaching experience. I am certified to teach in public schools in China. I believe interaction and immersion are effective approaches to learn a new language. Learning a new language with a native speaker is ten times efficient than learning from language apps. Lessons are customized. Communicative language and Chinese culture would be prioritized while making lesson plans. To learn a new language, it's not simply about the language itself. The more you know about the culture, the better you appreciate the language.

About Guifang
I have more than nine years of language teaching experience. I have learned five languages over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese when I was 19 and I founded my first summer camp in China when I was 20. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

Interest is the best teacher. When I taught non-nativ
e Chinese speakers (in China, South Korea and the U.S) Chinese, it seemed it stimulated their curiosity and interest to learn Chinese when cultural elements were introduced--such as characters' origin and visualization, historical contexts and cultural traditions. I hope that approach can also bring you an enjoyable experience learning a new language!

To help you be able to use Chinese, our language learning is mainly through interactive and communicative approaches. Talk! Talk! Talk! Please don't be shy. It's okay to make mistakes. Learning from mistakes is also a very effective way to learn a new language. We can make more contextualized dialogues based on whatever textbook you are using now. Or we can produce functional conversation based on everyday topics that you are interested. Lesson plans are customized and they can be flexible.

Ready to get on the boat and sail on the sea of Chinese? :)

HaiBo is very patient! I have been studying Chinese on my own for quite a while, but definitely need help with tones. She goes over and over them with me until she feels I've done them right! She is kind enough to put reviews of words, sentences, phrases in the form of flashcards on an app so I can review them over the course of the week. We have needed to reschedule several times and she has been flexible enough to do that for me, too! I have reviewed stuff I thought I knew and have learned new vocab, but most importantly, we have USED that vocab in sentences and I feel like I'm actually improving my spoken Chinese! In addition, I have been working on learning characters with HaiBo and I am surprised how many I know!

First you will have to learn how many sounds are there in Chinese language and how they're pronounced. After the first class you will be able to say some basic sentences and words in Chinese, such as:

Hi, how are you? What is your name? I am very good, my name is. Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, Dog, Cat.

We will learn rules of pinyin-Chinese transcription system. This system helps us know how to read the characters.

After a few classes we will start writing the characters-beginning with strokes. Characters are made of strokes.

I believe the most important thing in efficient learning of a language is speaking and so I will encourage you to start speaking almost right away. :)

Looking forward to teaching you Chinese!

Each lesson will be catered to the needs of the individual, I specialize in simple conversational Mandarin, and I have resources in several departments including professionals in the art, entertainment, finance, medical and political agencies.

About Patricia
Background & Experience:
I was born in Taiwan, my first language was Mandarin, then I learned English from my father at age 5. I've spent several years traveling back and forth between countries. I stayed mostly in the U.S. from 5th grade on until graduation, going back every two years to visit my grandmother. After I received my massage therapy certification, I decided to pursue an educational route because I come from a family of teachers. I went back to Taiwan to a boarding school. For class credit, I volunteered to be the English tutor, and to make extra money I tutored my professor who was the head of the technology
department. My most recent hire was translating for a 9 year old boy from China for a family in Chevy Chase.

Individual Lessons:
Each Lesson will be catered to the student. I specialize in simple conversational M
andarin and have the resources in finance, arts, entertainment, science, medicine, and political circles. Specialization in English translating and tutoring from Chinese to English also includes conversational in categories of finance, arts, entertainment, science, medicine, and politics.

Special Needs:
Working with special needs individuals requires patience and understanding of the spectrum of diverse needs. I have been working with IEP's for the last 2.5 years, and have hands on training with my now 5 year old daughter and 3 year old son with speech delay.

"Nihao" and "Huanying" to Mandarin Chinese tutoring!

I have 2 years of experience teaching Standard Mandarin Chinese at both beginners and intermediate levels in Beijing, China from 2011 to 2013. I also worked as a translator of business documents, NGOs projects, and academic articles, from 2010 - 2013.

As a student of linguistic anthropology at the University of Chicago, I specialize not only in teaching the communicative aspect of Mandarin Chinese, but also its metalinguistic ones such as language ideology and language politics in contemporary China. A life-long lover of Chinese classical and modern literature, I'm also happy to discuss the historical and literary aspects of Mandarin Chinese with students who are willing to learn more about the Chinese language in its culture.
