Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

As a fully qualified Chinese teacher I have been teaching Mandarin for 17 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 practice 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.

Super great teacher! She helps to make a lesson plan focused on what you need or want, for instance, helping me with conversational Chinese and reviewing characters. Instead of PowerPoint slideshows, she has me prepare little projects like talking about what I did last summer, or talking about my job. It really helps me get used to topics in Chinese that I would regularly speak about. Super friendly and super fun!

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.

Mandarin can be really challenging for most people. By using logic and the similarities with your native language, I can make it way easier for you to understand the grammar and use the language.
As a native Mandarin speaker, you'll have a great environment and full knowledge of the language from me.

I'm enthusiastic about teaching and sharing different culture to my students. Growing up in Asian culture makes me capable of telling the difference between western and eastern life styles. With more than 13 years of teaching experience, I have very solid teaching background and discover the easiest

Her technique and attention to music detail is amazing. She encourages relaxed recitals for students to gain confidence in a larger setting without pressure. my friends were impressed with my development and progress all along the classes because I had a great teacher! Would highly recommend!!!!"
