Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

Teaching has always been my passion. I have been teaching Mandarin for 10 years at various Language Institutes, and taught at private schools in Michigan for total of 5 years. With corporate client experience, I also have been working as a Mandarin instructor in a language company. There are many adult students with different levels who are currently learning Chinese from me. My success stems from enthusiasm, self-motivation, patient, creativity and the ability to communicate with students from diverse backgrounds. It is my goal to combine my range of experience with my ability to make the learning easy and fun.

I've had a great experience so far. Yiju is patient, enthusiastic, and fun. Her lessons are easy to get into and the time flies by really fast. She's very engaging on cultural topics, illustrates a variety of ways to say something, and is generally very organized and punctual. She has been very accommodating to my requests and helping me learn in a way that works for me. Since I had my own study materials before I started lessons with her, she has worked with me to practice the material I studied already. I would definitely recommend her.
Alexandria
Wonderful instructor. We look forward to continuing lessons later this year. She was very professional and made my 15 year old daughter comfortable with learning Chinese. She tailored the lessons to fit her aptitude. I would highly recommend her. She also met us at the local community center which was very helpful logistically.

As an experienced Mandarin teacher, I look to break down each component of the language into its most simple parts, so that the student can best understand all aspects of, what can be, a very challenging language.

Connor has been teaching my son Mandarin to complement his lessons at high school for two years. He has been great at engaging him and helping him practice both speaking, reading and writing. This has given him the confidence to speak more Mandarin during class. Additionally, Connor has a great rapport with my son and is very patient, organised and thorough with his lessons. I highly recommend Connor as a teacher.
Wendy
Mr. Connor has been working with my children for four years. He is an amazing teacher who is very patient and kind to my children. He is teaching them Chinese, singing, drums and guitar. Unlike other teachers we've had in the past, Mr. Connor incorporates games and songs into all his lessons which makes language learning much more interesting for young kids. My children adore Mr. Connor and are always looking forward to working with him every lesson.
Matt
Connor does a great job at making the learning experience fun. He breaks down the lessons well, which really helps with learning the material. I would highly recommend for anyone learning to play a new instrument!

As someone who wasn't able to take Mandarin at my university, it was wonderful to be able to maintain and especially improve my improvisational speaking skills with HaiBo. It's so wonderful to talk about current events and learn relevant vocabulary. I feel that I'm getting more use out of her lessons compared to a traditional class!

HaiBo does a great job pushing me to learn as much as I can, but will take the time to slow down when necessary. She is a great teacher and also very kind and understanding and is willing to work with my schedule. I highly recommend.

Online Mandarin Chinese Teacher

Firstly, I speak standard Mandarin Chinese from North Eastern China, which is the same kind of pronunciation found in professional teaching material and stipulated by the People Republic of China. Secondly, I have over ten years experience teaching second language to students of all ages and proficiency levels, which includes preparing students to take the HSK. Thirdly, I earned a bachelors degree and teaching certificate in teaching English, which has given me the pedological and speaking skills to explain Chinese grammar and culture to beginning level Chinese speakers.

I chose Sunny as my instructor because she has an impressive background and a friendly face. I will continue to work with Sunny because she is a fantastic teacher. She is quick to correct when needed but does so in a patient and supportive way; she also provides praise and seems genuinely happy when I perform well. She provides well structured lessons but is willing to adapt to my requests and personal learning needs. If I had a critique, it would be that she had limited availability - that said, she worked with me to find a time slot that fit both of our schedules and needs, so it wasn't really much of an issue! I'm very pleased that I chose Sunny as my Chinese instructor.
Tammy
Yajuan is an amazing woman all around. She takes the time to understand each student, and it isn't the artificial, fake type. Yajuan genuinely cares, and has a beautiful passion of teaching Mandarin Chinese to her students. I have learned so much already in my short time I have had with her! She is amazing; she has this beautiful passion and it is extremely contagious. I highly recommend her; doesn't matter your age or anything. She is just all around amazing and you will love her!
Ethan
Yajuan is an excellent Chinese teacher. She's friendly and makes you feel comfortable during her class. She explains concepts well and easily answers any questions you have. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a Chinese tutor.

"Alina is wonderful. There's just no substitute for a professional teacher like her if you really want to learn a language. I think this is especially true for a language that is as difficult and foreign (to an English speaker at least) as Mandarin. Thanks to Alina, I finally have gotten the hang of the tones and am learning the characters for real. I LOVE the textbook she teaches out of--it's part of a very thorough series of Chinese language-learning textbooks, the sort you would use in an actual class at a university or in an immersion program. In addition, she prepares pdfs which she sends me to supplement the textbook vocabulary/grammar. We're on chapter 6 now and I'm feeling very excited and motivated because after years of wanting to learn Mandarin and dabbling casually with various materials, I feel that I've finally begun to make progress.

Alina, in addition to being a great teacher, is also a very warm and considerate person. She won't make you feel pressured or uncomfortable if you aren't perfectly prepared for your lesson. She's also been very conscientious about sending materials, being on time for our lessons, and making sure that I understood all of the lesson material, even if it means going a little over the designated hour. I highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about learning Mandarin."
