Online Mandarin Teacher

I have more than nine years of language teaching experience. I have learned five languages over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese when I was 19 and I founded my first summer camp in China when I was 20. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

About Guifang

I teach K-8 grades students Chinese speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation through presentations, visual arts, songs and other various types of activities.

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.

I have been teaching Chinese in bay area for many years. I am very experienced in customizing private lessons for students of different age with a wide variety of needs.

Background:
I am a Chinese native speaker with a Master degree in Education. I've also got a teaching credential to teach in public schools in China. I am experienced in customizing lessons for both children and adults. In my class, students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Therefore, I've gained a lot of successful teaching experiences in designing lessons targeting students' goals and expectations. My Chinese class has covered topics from kids Chinese to adult Business Chinese.

Ms.Lin has been teaching me for almost as long as I have been playing the violin. She has been very helpful and always focuses on what we have trouble with. In class , our needs are prioritized and we go at whatever pace fits us best. Overall, this violin class has been incredibly helpful and I look forward to each lesson!!
Jenny K.
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.
