I've been studying Mandarin for ten years and have lived in China several times for different periods. I'd love to help you get started with your Chinese.

I have a whole set of beginner lessons planned out and will work with you to get you speaking with the first lesson. After that we will talk about varies topics that will keep you engaged and learning. Each lesson will consist of vocabulary and activities to cement in that vocabulary. Alternating with grammar lessons with accompanying activities.

I achieved an intermediate-mid on the Chinese OPI exam and have taken 20+ Chinese classes over the years, as well as, minored in Chinese at my university.

Online Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I've been teaching Chinese for almost 8 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Chinese language, culture and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start learning and speaking simple practical Chinese characters and sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to write and speak Chinese fluently.I typically use worksheets, living textbooks,Chinese songs, role play and more. I love working with students of all experience levels.

Teacher assumed I knew something about origami but it was a beginner lesson. Video feed from teacher's end was terrible. I think that the first object was too difficult. That said, the teacher tried hard and sincerely, but we both just ended up frustrated.

"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."
