At first I was very apprehensive with the online format as never tried that before, but needn't as XiaoMing was an excellent teacher. Helped me to translate passages in simple Chinese for me to make in my presentation. Corrected me on my tones which I needed. A clever guy who is flexible to do Business Chinese or Conversational Chinese. Recommended.

My lessons are shaped by my education backgrounds and my teaching experiences. The acronym "CAVE" is a good summary of my lessons:

Communication. Communication is the ultimate goal of language. My classes are rooted in a communicative approach, in which you are the center of this learning process. Topics and activities are designed with real communicative goals. In my Chinese classes, you will mostly hear me speaking Chinese unless the use of English is necessary.

Authenticity. One of the first few English phrases I learned from a textbook is: "How are you? I am fine! Thank you! And you?" However, when I moved to the U.S. I realized that no one really talks like that! Here is another anecdote I would like to share. In the first month of moving to the States, I went to Zaxby's with friends. I was super surprised and excited when I saw "chicken fingers" on the menu. I thought it meant "chicken feet" and that people in the States eat them as well. To my disappointment, my order ...

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.

Our daughter told us that she enjoyed her first class and likes Alina as her teacher. Alina is very professional and detail oriented. They went over the material from SAT prep book and practiced some conversation. We look forward to Masha's next class with Alina.
Raquel B.
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.
