Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

As a fully qualified Chinese teacher I have been teaching Mandarin for 16 years in both China and the United States. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of Mandarin skills.

For adult learners, speaking Chinese does not seem easy, but I can help you understand and master the tones of the Chinese phonetic alphabet in a short time. Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and, as time goes by, you'll be able to use Mandarin like a pro!

For young learners, we can start by recognizing the Chinese characters, or singing Chinese children's songs.

If you are an advanced Chinese learner, we can practise reading some Chinese articles and discuss the topics. I also specialize in Chinese writing so, if you need to improve your writing skills, I can help you.

I love working with students of all levels and look forward to seeing you soon.

Teacher Sophie is great. She has been a tutor for me (50+) English speaker learning Mandarin starting with absolutely no knowledge and my daughter (15) who started learning immersion Mandarin at age 4 and is already quite fluent.

From my standpoint Teacher Sophie has been a very diligent and patient tutor willing to spend a great deal of time with a student who needs regular repetition and practice. Given that my business travel requires regular visits to China, Teacher Sophie has focused on practical day to day Mandarin that has proven very helpful as I navigate Maritime business dealings throughout China.

For my daughter, Teacher Sophie has geared up her tutoring to include more intensive vocabulary and a refresher program. Given that my daughter is in a high school now that does not offer Mandarin, this type of refresher course is very valuable.

I strongly recommend Teacher Sophie as a Mandarin tutor at any level of instruction.

I’m a passionate, funny, and patient teacher. In my class, students can learn with fun.

My classes are creative and also cover new content from daily life. I teach based on student’s needs and goals.

Currently, I’m offering Oral Chinese, Conversational Chinese, Business Chinese, Travel Chinese, and also tutoring service.

No matter what level of your Chinese is, how old you are, and what is your native language, in a proper way, you can definitely speak another language very well.

"Lynn is affordable, informative, patient, skilled, but most of all, supportive! She pushes you to try hard and is excellent at assessing a student’s weaknesses, strengths, and their goals. A more underrated quality that she has that a lot of instructors who are excellent at their skills seem to lack is kindness - she is very friendly but is able to maintain the balance between friendliness and being a formal instructor. I feel more comfortable with my mandarin already, even though I have leagues to go! 谢谢老师!"

"Wen laoshi is fantastic! She does a great job of explaining the vocabulary and sentence structures in ways that I can understand and takes time to work through tones. She is very friendly and understanding. If something comes up and I need to postpone a lesson or even cancel, she is always willing to accommodate. She is very fun to talk and I consider her a friend as much as a teacher."
