About Lana Y.

Ni hao!

I am a firm believer that building a love for learning is one of the most important things we can do as parents. As a teacher of almost 20 years across multiple states and countries, it has always been my goal to create a positive learning environment for young learners while sharing the Chinese language and culture. Whether you are looking for an after-school tutor, build your vocabulary, or just learn 'from the beginning', I am happy to personalize the class to match your goals.

I graduated from Yunnan Normal University with a Bachelor's degree in Education. I am originally from Kunming in Southwestern China, home to the largest concentration of ethnic minorities in the country. I have taught in private schools in China, private and public schools in Thailand, and after moving to the United States, taught both virtually and in-person as a certified Mandarin Chinese teacher for the Florida Virtual School as well as Duval County School district of Jacksonville. I now teach in the greater Charlotte area, North Carolina. I am the founder of the city's Language Story Time group, where we immerse children in fun-filled multilingual activities. Children bring me so much joy!

I can't wait to contribute to your child's future with the Chinese language!
