Mandarin can be really challenging for most people. By using logic and the similarities with your native language, I can make it way easier for you to understand the grammar and use the language.
As a native Mandarin speaker, you'll have a great environment and full knowledge of the language from me.

About Sonia

I'm enthusiastic about teaching and sharing different culture to my students. Growing up in Asian culture makes me capable of telling the difference between western and eastern life styles. With more than 13 years of teaching experience, I have very solid teaching background and discover the easiest

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

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I’m a Chinese native speaker from China,the town is called Zhongshan,near HK and Macau. So for sure, Mandarin and Cantonese are my fluent languages.
I have been a teacher for almost 30 years,mainly of history and languages.Now I’m in the US, specialized in teaching Chinese as a foreign language. That’s why I’m here.
Practice makes perfect, means patience training is a cruel key for learners,kids,adults,tourists,businessmen…
Lively activities are always present in my classes:cards, tongue twisters, nursery rhymes,riddles,charades,origami,kiligami,ancient and modern China, history and culture, and so forth.

About Loulou

With long-term teaching experiences, it thus means high qualities on knowledge and teaching abilities, good skills on communication and cooperation with students, parents, coworkers, positive mindset, more physical energy , etc. Most of all, I know well that practice makes perfect, patience train

"I've been teaching Chinese for 15 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Chinese culture, study abroad in Asia, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!
Chinese language learning materials as part of an integrated curriculum designed to motivate students in non-native Chinese environments to start speaking Chinese.
