I understand the difficulties of learning English, especially when coming from a completely different language such as Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese. As I learn more about the Chinese language, I've learned how to break the communication and cultural barriers.

I'd love to help improve English speaking, writing, communication, and overall understanding of the English language, specifically tailored for native Chinese speakers.

I will structure English lessons to your needs! Whatever issues you may have--grammar, pronunciation, basic vocabulary, or other--I will make that my focus. We will work together through games and small assignments, ranging in difficulty based on language level and attention span. I speak some German and French, but we will speak exclusively in English so you can get the practice you need!

Christine is absolutely amazing. Not only does she have a lovely voice, but she is also great at teaching others to sing too! I've been taking singing lessons with Christine for a few months now, and I can hear my voice getting better over time. Christine is so nice and patient during her lessons. She makes me feel better about my singing by interspersing constructive criticism with positive feedback and praise as well. She's always on time and you get your money's worth; she packs the time we have together with lots of useful ideas I can work on the rest of the week. Christine is positive and a joy to be around.
She is the absolute best. I highly recommend!

English Language Conversations for Beginners

Although words may be limited and simple, it is still possible to enjoy conversations in English even if you are a beginner. I think that it’s essential to be able to express basic needs and to clearly express your identity. Let’s get started with the very basics and then we’ll build from there. Greetings and Introductions: When meeting new people you need to be able to greet them. If you are in an informal situation you might say, “Hey, I’m (name), nice to meet you.” In order …
