With the current COVID-19 virus crisis, I have been shifting all my students to online classes. Check out my pictures to see my online classroom set up, or feel free to send me a message if you have questions! :)

Mandarin is a musical language that's quickly taking over the world, you'll have lots of fun learning this language.

I was born and raised in Singapore, and am fluent in both English and Mandarin. I can read, write and speak at a bilingual, native proficiency in English and professional proficiency in Mandarin.

I'll teach you depending on your level and age. For kids, I use fun, interactive storytelling. For the adults, I'll dive into concepts like the origins of the language, nuances of the intonations, all the while teaching you vocabulary and sentence structure. I'll also adjust my lessons based on your feedback, your learning style and your goals!

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I am a native Chinese speaker. I can speak five languages. I have years of languages (Chinese & English) teaching experience. I am certified to teach in public schools in China. I believe interaction and immersion are effective approaches to learn a new language. Learning a new language with a native speaker is ten times efficient than learning from language apps. Lessons are customized. Communicative language and Chinese culture would be prioritized while making lesson plans. To learn a new language, it's not simply about the language itself. The more you know about the culture, the better you appreciate the language.

Guifang is very patient and helpful. I am looking forward to our remaining lessons.

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.

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.

Mastering fundamentals is extremely important when learning a language. This is especially true for Chinese. We'll first practice the basic sounds and tones. Then we'll learn practical travel Chinese--practicing simple conversations. Once you get your footing, we'll expand your vocabulary and understanding of grammar.

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.

"Oh geez! I've completely forgotten to write this for months now!

I've had Miss Sonia as a mandarin teacher since last August. She's incredibly patient and will do a lot of work on her own end to find useful materials for her pupils to help them grasp certain concepts.

I have a tendency to overload myself with work, school, and life duties, leaving not much time to study as I would like, and she's been very patient in that regard. Often incorporating "review" days that do, in fact, review key concepts, but always branch out into other concepts, leading to increased comprehension through repetition as well as further learning.

As we all know, actually learning a language requires a LOT of work and effort to step out of comfort zones, and my big problem is simply learning time management. Once I get that down, I'm positive I could advance quickly with her tutelage.

I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to understand the language and culture surrounding it. :D"

"I have both of my kids (Age 11, 13) taking in-person and online classes with Teacher Lin. Kids initially were quite resistant to have 1-on-1 Chinese lessons - but after the first lesson - they both said "1 hour already? That's fast!". Both thought that while they already know some level of Chinese from a few years in Chinese school, Teacher Lin is able to reinforce the grammatical and technical foundation of the language - while making it engaging.

The online classes are very easy to attend and as effective. It is a great option when we need to stay at home without missing anything."
