Lesson Details

Mandarin Chinese

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I am a native Chinese speaker. I can speak five languages. I have years of languages (Chinese & English) teaching experience. I am certified to teach in public schools in China. I believe interaction and immersion are effective approaches to learn a new language. Learning a new language with a native speaker is ten times efficient than learning from language apps. Lessons are customized. Communicative language and Chinese culture would be prioritized while making lesson plans. To learn a new language, it's not simply about the language itself. The more you know about the culture, the better you appreciate the language.

Teaching since:

I have more than nine years of language teaching experience. I have learned five languages over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese when I was 19 and I founded my first summer camp in China when I was 20. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

Interest is the best teacher. When I taught non-native Chinese speakers (in China, South Korea and the U.S) Chinese, it seemed it stimulated their curiosity and interest to learn Chinese when cultural elements were introduced--such as characters' origin and visualization, historical contexts and cultural traditions. I hope that approach can also bring you an enjoyable experience learning a new language!

To help you be able to use Chinese, our language learning is mainly through interactive and communicative approaches. Talk! Talk! Talk! Please don't be shy. It's okay to make mistakes. Learning from mistakes is also a very effective way to learn a new language. We can make more contextualized dialogues based on whatever textbook you are using now. Or we can produce functional conversation based on everyday topics that you are interested. Lesson plans are customized and they can be flexible.

Before coming to the U.S., I founded a summer camp in 2010 and a language school in 2014, to teach English and Chinese in China. I've gained valuable teaching experience and skills over the years.

May 2013 - Jun 2014

In 2013, I worked for IPC, an international financial consultant company, as a translator and assistant for the deputy project manager. As a translator for the manager, I was deeply involved in the interviewing, hiring, and firing processes, as well as communications between different clients. This work experience honed my bilingual skills in communication and understanding different cultures.

Guifang is friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and supportive. As a teacher myself, I'm very critical of other teachers, but she far exceeds my high expectations.

Great teacher! She takes the time to tailor each class materials for my 6 yr old son. She is very patient and well prepared for the lessons. In just 3 weeks, my son has became interested in learning Chinese.

I went to Miss Xue's summer camp and learned English from her for two years. She was very nice and patient. The knowledge and skills that she told us were very helpful. My English grade increased from 60s to 80s. I really appreciated with her help.

I recognized Guifang's experience as a language educator immediately. She is patient, concise, and clearly enjoys teaching. Her assistance has been crucial to my developing an efficient learning system. I rely on her for refresh and expand my Chinese language skills biweekly. She has way of conveying the subtleties of fluent pronunciation. I did not expect to make so much progress so quickly. Highly Recommend her services!

Guifang is a gem. She's incredibly nice, and very good at correcting me in a direct but kind way. She's a lovely person and fantastic at teaching! I am so happy to have met her, and we continue chatting even though we're far apart now. I'd highly recommend her to anyone as a language instructor!
