Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I lived in China for over 20 years and understand the challenges of learning Mandarin as an English speaker. I explain the mystic and wonder of the language and mindset. Over 5000 years of history is alive and well in the Chinese language and it's fascinating. My main focus is on pronunciation and tones, tones, tones. Without good pronunciation and sharp tones communication in Mandarin is challenged. Expect me to correct your pronunciation. You'll find my lessons to be full of interesting aspects and quirks of Chinese culture and language.

I'm a traditional Beijinger, I can only speak simple English. Most communication can only in Mandarin. If you want to experience pure Mandarin you can contact me. For me, this is not a place to educate others, but to make people from different countries understand China.

Our first lesson went well. My seven yr old daughter enjoyed the lesson. She even insisted on teaching me a few words later that day. We are looking forward to future lessons.

Grace is very patient and knowledgeable. I am learning how to read, write, speak and understand the language and with her teaching skills I’m surprised at how fast I’m learning it. Would definitely recommend her.

"Mr. Connor has been working with my children for four years. He is an amazing teacher who is very patient and kind to my children. He is teaching them Chinese, singing, drums and guitar. Unlike other teachers we've had in the past, Mr. Connor incorporates games and songs into all his lessons which makes language learning much more interesting for young kids. My children adore Mr. Connor and are always looking forward to working with him every lesson."

"I recently had the pleasure of taking the FrostForward Online Introductory Mandarin course with Connor Frost. As a first time student of the language, it was imperative that I work with someone who was patient, and able to break down this difficult language in it’s most digestible form. Connor did not disappoint on either front. From the onset, it was clear that he was not only experienced, but well-versed in one of the world’s most difficult dialects (written and spoken). His fluidity made me more at ease and trusting of his instruction. I appreciate the obvious time he takes prepare in advance of each lesson, and the information he shares to help with independent study. I look forward to studying with Connor for some time to come!"
