As a fully qualified Chinese teacher I have been teaching Mandarin for 16 years in both China and the United States. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of Mandarin skills.

For adult learners, speaking Chinese does not seem easy, but I can help you understand and master the tones of the Chinese phonetic alphabet in a short time. Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and, as time goes by, you'll be able to use Mandarin like a pro!

For young learners, we can start by recognizing the Chinese characters, or singing Chinese children's songs.

If you are an advanced Chinese learner, we can practise reading some Chinese articles and discuss the topics. I also specialize in Chinese writing so, if you need to improve your writing skills, I can help you.

I love working with students of all levels and look forward to seeing you soon.

About Qian( Sophie) L.

Hello, My name is Qian Li. I have 16 years experience as a Mandarin Chinese teacher in both China and the United States. I have worked in the States teaching Mandarin as a second language to K-12 level and college students for 6 years. I also hosted a Distance Chinese class for beginners at Portland State University.

I graduated from Wuhan University with a Master's in TCSOL (Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages).

I enjoy helping my students learn to speak Mandarin from the beginning and build up their Chinese vocabulary by playing games using characters. From listening and speaking to reading and writing we can practice all these subjects in class.

I always enjoy creating personalized text with Chinese characters to enhance reading skills for my students. Let me know if you have any questions about learning Mandarin. I look forward to meeting you in my class and for us to having a good and interesting time together.

Teacher Sophie is great. She has been a tutor for me (50+) English speaker learning Mandarin starting with absolutely no knowledge and my daughter (15) who started learning immersion Mandarin at age 4 and is already quite fluent.

From my standpoint Teacher Sophie has been a very diligent and patient tutor willing to spend a great deal of time with a student who needs regular repetition and practice. Given that my business travel requires regular visits to China, Teacher Sophie has focused on practical day to day Mandarin that has proven very helpful as I navigate Maritime business dealings throughout China.

For my daughter, Teacher Sophie has geared up her tutoring to include more intensive vocabulary and a refresher program. Given that my daughter is in a high school now that does not offer Mandarin, this type of refresher course is very valuable.

I strongly recommend Teacher Sophie as a Mandarin tutor at any level of instruction.
