Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I am a native Chinese speaker. I am teaching children, adolescent, and adult, by group or 1:1 lessons. I design study plan according to student's needs. I also adjust teaching style based on student’s personality and pace. Main textbooks I use are HSK and Integrated Chinese. For business Chinese, I will craft contents according to your industry and nature of practice. I can conduct classes either in Mandarin only, or English and Mandarin to help better communication for some students.

Joan is very friendly. She makes learning Mandarin quite easy. She is also very patient and engaging. I will definitely recommend using her
Jermaine
I've tried learning Mandarin Chinese with numerous instructors before Joan to no avail. My prior experiences have been arduous at best. But, my recent experience with Joan has been the complete opposite. Her teaching style encourages you to be bold and enjoy the learning experience, which makes learning a more fun experience. I would highly recommend her as a Mandarin Chinese instruction to anyone who truly wants to learn the language.
Rakaan Alfarsi
Very comprehensive and supportive, easy to understand and takes an extra mile to help me with lessons after hours. Will always go back to Ms. Joan for future lessons.

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I’m a Chinese native speaker from China,the town is called Zhongshan,near HK and Macau. So for sure, Mandarin and Cantonese are my fluent languages.
I have been a teacher for almost 30 years,mainly of history and languages.Now I’m in the US, specialized in teaching Chinese as a foreign language. That’s why I’m here.
Practice makes perfect, means patience training is a cruel key for learners,kids,adults,tourists,businessmen…
Lively activities are always present in my classes:cards, tongue twisters, nursery rhymes,riddles,charades,origami,kiligami,ancient and modern China, history and culture, and so forth.

About Loulou

With long-term teaching experiences, it thus means high qualities on knowledge and teaching abilities, good skills on communication and cooperation with students, parents, coworkers, positive mindset, more physical energy , etc. Most of all, I know well that practice makes perfect, patience train

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."
