你好!很高兴你有缘来访我的主页:)

I am bilingual in English and Chinese with Chinese as my native language. The passion and love for language is in my blood - my mother teaches English as a college professor in China who specializes in translation between cultures, and I loved her huge shelf of books since I barely could start to read. When I was in high school, I won the first place in the national writing competition in China, so you could trust my ability in Chinese with confidence!

Apart from my knowledge of both languages, I am good with their usage in a large number of different fields. I hold a masters in Engineering and am an artist who worked in the IT industry in the past as well, so no matter your specialization, be it business, medical, science, mathematics, history, music, or more, I am confident to teach you with the exact tools you need to thrive in the field you are interested in with the help of your mandarin.

Bonus points: I am a singer, so dictation is of great importance to me. If you wish, I will provide you with the tools and exercises to master your pronunciation with clear and sound dictation. English and Chinese pronunciation is rather different and I could help you sort out all the nuances and hone the different skills needed to pronounce Chinese gracefully and convincingly.

Mandarin is a beautiful language and I am excited to share the powerful magic of this language with you. Let's embark on an adventure together! 一起加油!

About Fanjin M.

Let me help your soul flow with music! As a classically-trained singer, a piano player, a ukulele player and a native Chinese speaker, who also used to work as an engineer in the IT industry and did psychology research, my own life has been blessed with colorful and diverse experiences, and as a result, I embrace people with all kinds of ideas from different walks of life as well! So, hi, dear you, welcome!

I value open, authentic and compassionate communication, and deem it as one of the most important part in teaching. I like to have fun and be playful during teaching, because I would love to see my students have their interest in a new skill kindled, not burned out by ineffective, pushy plans or unrealistic expectations. Most important of all, my biggest wish is to serve you professionally as a teacher with love and joy.

Let us meet your goals together!

Awesome as ever. She ‘debugged’ all the problems I faced during my own singing practice with me. Love, love, love her class! I hope you try her out if you are serious about what your voice can do~

My past teaching experience was mostly designing singing exercises for students in 1-1 singing sessions, each session one hour long, working with my voice pedagogy coach Justin Stoney at the same time. I focused a lot on making sure the exercises are working in the correct way and is in line with what that the singer wants, and at the same time giving them lots of encouragements, and pointing out where are the possibilities waiting to be discovered in their voice.
