Private Mandarin Teacher

I have more than nine years of language teaching experience. I have learned five languages over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese when I was 19 and I founded my first summer camp in China when I was 20. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

Guifang is an outstanding teacher. I started at zero and did not know where to start. She has planned out my learning journey and got me up to speed really fast. She makes the lessons fun and engaging. The lessons have been tailored to my needs.

Guifang's experience as a teacher shines through in her lessons.
Braden
Guifang has been such a great teacher (老师) ever since I started with her a few weeks ago. She takes her time and is very patient, what I love the most though is that there is no rush in trying to fit a schedule with her and she adapts the lessons to the students liking or skill set.

Learning a new language takes time, especially with Chinese where there is so much cultural backgrounds and history of language and I feel that Guifang understands this. She really makes the learning experience stress free as well as enjoyable.

If you plan to use Chinese at work, we can focus our lessons around dialogue and vocabulary that relates directly to your job or industry. If you are a student and want to improve your academic performance in Chinese, I can train you to utilize more efficient ways of studying and practicing. If you would like to gain exposure to or build a foundation in Mandarin Chinese, I can also help you accomplish this.
