Ni hao! My name is Shanshan , I was born in Mainland China and finished my bachelor’s degree at Nanjing University of Aeronautics & Astronautics.

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 ...

Maggie is an incredible teacher! My daughter has been taking lessons with her for 3 months now and she has improved so much. My daughter is in high school and has been playing for a few years now. She wanted to be more serious so we started taking lessons with Maggie. She has so much fun every lesson and I can hear her improve every time she practices after a lesson. Maggie makes playing the bass so fun. My daughter is always so excited and I can’t wait to see where this will lead to next.

Maggie has expert knowledge about the double bass from studying with members of the best orchestras in the US. Her teaching lead me to achieve things on the instrument that I didn't know I could do. I highly recommend her as a 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.

Online Mandarin Chinese Teacher

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 10 years of language teaching experience. I have learned eight languages and dialects over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese in 2009 and I founded my first summer camp in China in 2010. Students who had registered for my summe

Online Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I am native speaker in Chinese, and now live and work in Los Angeles. Before I came to American to earn my master degree from NYU, I had four years teaching experience as TA and instructor in shanghai. At that time, I found my passion for teaching.

My goal is to simplify Chinese study and let you learn it with less pain and struggle. I will make you fall in love with Chinese-learning, and I DO believe that interest is the best teacher. Plus, I teach Chinese online with Mandarin pronunciation which had received intense professional training (mandarin without any local accent).

Living and working in the US helps me understand language-learning is not only about grammar or vocabulary, but also at the Chinese way of thinking. Let me help you speak and think like a real Chinese.

About Yuan

Before I live and work in Los Angeles, I got my master degree from Tisch school of the arts in NYU. My international education background helps me understand language-learning need to under

Miss Ge is a very professional and passionate teacher. I had her Mandarin lesson online and she helped me to fall in love with language learning just like she has promised. To me, the most important thing of language learning is to trigger and maintain interest and she did it. I would highly recommend her to everyone.

"Matt is an incredible teacher and person in general. He understands so much about chinese and is able to easily communicate the lessons in a way that I can understand and practice between classes. 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."

"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!"

He's teaching them on subjects that there interested in as well as day to day not just making them learn straight from a book which helps motivate them.

"We are absolutely thrilled with our experience with Tammy. My two sons meet with her online to review the Mandarin language they take at school. The extra 30 min. a week of conversation and tone work is invaluable. I would rate Tammy a 10/10 as she sends highlights, a review and suggestions of study for the week after each lesson. If a person can have teenage boys look forward to "extra" Chinese weekly, they deserve a medal!"
