My husband and I had a great experience taking beginning Chinese lessons with Monique. We didn't know a lick of Chinese, and now we feel pretty comfortable with basic communication. We're moving to Beijing next month, so Monique was great at tailoring our lessons to our specific needs (for instance, restaurant, airport, and "getting around" vocab). She's a great, patient teacher and is very flexible with scheduling.

Private 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.

About Alina

你好 !My name is 强耀萱, but if you are a beginner you can just call me “Alina” for now. Firstly, I speak standard Mandarin Chinese from North Eastern China, which is the same kind of pronunciation you would find in professional teaching material at universities and is also stipulated by the Peoples Republic of China. Secondly, I have over ten years experience teaching second language to all ages and proficiency levels. I particularly have experience in teaching school children Chinese. I am also proficient in preparing students to take the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK). Thirdly, my bachelors degree is in English Education, so I understand important pedological methods and can explain grammar and cultural concepts to beginner level students.

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.

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

Grew up in China and graduated from one of the best universities in China. Learning Mandarin is more about learning Chinese culture than the words. Chinese is a very logical language and you will have a lot of fun learning with me.

About Chaowei

Before I came to New York, I taught English at a local training center in Shanghai,China.

I started teaching Mandarin to a few Canadians and Americans when I was in university more than 10 years ago. And we still keep in touch now. Learning language is more about learning the culture. I am fascinated by the differences and similarities between Chinese culture and American Culture. And discovering those differences or similarities will create a big curiosity which will be very beneficial and effective when you learn the language.

In fact, many people don't know or never notice that Chinese is a very logical language and full of Chinese traditional wisdom. Even you don't agree China is becoming more and and more influential in the world, learning some Chinese culture and oriental philosophy will be an interesting journey.

You will hav

e a lot of fun learning Chinese with me!

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I was born in China and finished my ninth grade there. The school is quite prestigious in terms of academic level. I then finished high school in the United States and earned my Bachelor Degree in Chemistry and Violin Performance at Oberlin College and Conservatory in Ohio. My fluency in both languages will make learning Mandarin much easier and more fun.

About Jerry (Zheyang)

Hello! I am Jerry Xiong. I just graduated from Oberlin College and Conservatory with Bachelor Degrees in violin performance and chemistry. Currently, I am studying violin performance at USC Thornton School of Music.

Having been the concertmaster of both Oberlin Orchestra and the Colorado College Summer Music Festival Orchestra, I believe that classical music has always been a passion for me. Recent awards include winner of New Hampshire Philharmonic Orchestra Concerto Competition of 2014, Winner of Oberlin Conservatory Concerto Competition of 2017-18, and the semi-finalist of Ann and Charles Eisemann International Young Artist Competition of 2018. This year, I have been selected as one of the four concertmasters of the Thornton Symphony.

I believe that my experience and my passion for music will be able to help both improve one's techni

que as well as staying passionate about music. Having met numerous world's greatest violin pedagogues, being able to share my music with you is a treat for both you and me.

For my potential student who would like to learn Chinese, my fluency in both languages will be able to help you learn the language with fun and ease. Learning Chinese is not just learning a language, one will be able to feel the Chinese culture and the beauty of this language.

Many good and gifted players are not necessarily the best teacher, but Mr. Xiong is really someone who can teach you HOW to practice and to love your music!
Perfect for beginners or anyone wants to pursue better musicality! I love my violin now.

Ching M.

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

Hi, My name is Ching. I was born and raised in Taiwan, and fully educated in transitional Mandarin before moving to The United States. I have lived in the States since 2011. I can teach you basic transitional Mandarin characters writing, grammar, speaking, and learning useful daily conversations.

What makes me more beneficial for you compare to other Mandarin teachers? First of all, My English has almost no Chinese accent so you can understand better during the lesson. Second of all, I have Associated with mostly Americans which means I can Explain things much better than others. Last of all, I got good sense of humor and great personality that will make your experience even more fun.

About Ching

My first language is Mandarin, but I found a way to teach myself how to reduce my accent to almost none. Somebody might even think I was born in the States or moved to the States since I was little. Today, I am here to share my ways to help you how to sound more American, and help you to communicate with people better while living in the United States.
I also have experience teaching English speakers Mandarin. You will understand me very well because I don't have a thick Chinese accent. I can find the best way you help you learning Chinese as you need.

I am easy-going and fun to work with. We will have a lot of fun learning together!

I am a native speaker who is fully bilingual. Take lessons with me to learn how to flirt, order at a restaurant, slang, and impress Chinese and non-Chinese people. I'll teach you wisdom from the culture. I'll also introduce you to Chinese humor.

About Angela

Dear future student,
Did you ever wish you could say more than nihaoma?
Does ni hao kai lan make you wish you could be fluent in Mandarin?
If so, let me know if you want to get started today in the basics of Mandarin.
Not only will you impress your mother, but you could impress your waiter and eventually tell jokes in Mandarin.
What are you waiting for?
Kuai xue ba!
