"I've been teaching Chinese for 15 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Chinese culture, study abroad in Asia, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!
Chinese language learning materials as part of an integrated curriculum designed to motivate students in non-native Chinese environments to start speaking Chinese.

Kelvin was an incredible teacher! He somehow made the very technical art of origami a bit easier to digest and do on our own from home. He was supportive and cheering us on, and his passion for origami was extremely evident. We can't wait to work with him again. Thanks, Kelvin!

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

Grew up in America (born in Taiwan) for over 13 years and native speaker of both English and Mandardin Chinese.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

Ni hao! My name is Shanshan , I was born in Mainland China and finished my bachelor’s degree at Nanjing University of Aeronautics & Astronautics. I have completed my master’s degree at Southeast Missouri State University with an emphasis in Higher Education Administration. My written and spoken Chinese are both excellent. I have owned the first prize in the Chinese Youth Calligraphy Competition and got Grade B of the first class in the Certificate of Putonghua Proficiency Test.
Since I can remember, I have always had aspirations to be a Chinese teacher. I like the idea of passing on my knowledge to a new generation of pupils. English is my second language, in my college years, I used to work in cram School to teach elementary school students the basic level of language, including listening, reading, speaking, and writing and always love to try different ways to help students to learn Chinese. My teaching style is to make the course of study happier and easier. Let’s study and ...

"Mr. Connor has been working with my children for four years. He is an amazing teacher who is very patient and kind to my children. He is teaching them Chinese, singing, drums and guitar. Unlike other teachers we've had in the past, Mr. Connor incorporates games and songs into all his lessons which makes language learning much more interesting for young kids. My children adore Mr. Connor and are always looking forward to working with him every lesson."
