I am also a Beijing Culture and Language University Teaching Proficiency Certificate of Teaching Chinese as a Second language recipient; Senior Chinese Language teacher certified by International Profession Certification Association.

During years of my teaching experience, I have taught students from young kids to adults, from very beginner to advanced high levels. I am always very flexible with my teaching methods and materials. I tailor my lessons according to students' background and needs. Besides language teaching, I also enrich my lessons with Chinese Culture education. Just let me know your goals about learning Chinese, I am here to help.

Besides teaching Chinese, I also teach classical piano. Grown up in a very musical family, I started to play the piano since I was very young. Although I chose to study linguistic for my college level education, I took piano lessons privately with famous professors from some major music conservatories. I have never given up my piano playing and teaching. In years of the piano teaching career, many of my students have passed the ABRSM piano certification exam with great grades. I also include my piano lessons with ear training and music theory study.

My son and his friend has been taking class with Daisy for a year. I am happy to see the improvements over conversation,reading and writing after a year. Daisy is patient with kids and engage the boys with different lesson themes and multimedia. she introduces subjects that the boys can relate to daily so they can use it in a conversation at home..She is also very considerate that the boys has a busy school schedule also. She has good understanding of Chinese language-a difficult language to learn for kids and needs repetitive practice and patient.

My son has been studying Chinese with Daisy for about a year and his Chinese has improved significantly.Daisy's lessons cover writing and reading Chinese characters as well as pin-yin. She also gives tests to ensure he remembers what he has learned. To improve my son's writing she insisted on using writing papers with proper grids and took the time to get them for us. Daisy is a caring and responsible teacher.

Daisy is amazing! She is not only very professional and organized, she is very patient. Whenever I have a new topic I want to discuss, she is very willing to structure the class around that topic.
She also sends detailed notes about the vocabulary that came up in the lesson so you can review it later- very helpful!

I took Chinese lessons with Daisy in order to improve my Chinese skills. She's a very good teacher and spends a lot of time making sure you understand what you're learning. She introduced a lot of new vocabulary and grammar to me, and she conducted the lessons entirely in Mandarin which really improved my listening comprehension. I highly recommend her!
