你好 !My name is 强耀萱, but if you are a beginner you can just call me “Alina” for now. Firstly, I speak standard Mandarin Chinese from North Eastern China, which is the same kind of pronunciation you would find in professional teaching material at universities and is also stipulated by the Peoples Republic of China. Secondly, I have over ten years experience teaching second language to all ages and proficiency levels. I particularly have experience in teaching school children Chinese. I am also proficient in preparing students to take the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK). Thirdly, my bachelors degree is in English Education, so I understand important pedological methods and can explain grammar and cultural concepts to beginner level students.

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.
