About Rae L.
I offer online sessions with standard Mandarin Chinese and simplified Chinese characters. There are two types of sessions that I provide. One is homework help, test preparation, etc. You can send me the documents that you want to work on. The other type of session that I do is structured lessons with vocabulary, sentences, dialogues, and so on. I follow a set curriculum so you have the option to order the textbook online to go with your study. I also use powerpoint presentations for the sessions.
I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker from northern China where Mandarin Chinese is born. I graduated from a Chinese university and learned how to teach a second language from a graduate school in the US with a 3.9 GPA and scholarships. I have two years of experience teaching Mandarin Chinese as well. I have worked with students from 5 to 80 years old, ranging from K-12, college, and working and retired adults. Right now I am specialized in beginner Chinese. I'm currently studying Language and Learning focusing on teaching a second language. My passion is to be a language teacher. I think it would be awesome if I could help you learn Chinese while doing what I love. I am patient, friendly, and punctual. I can be flexible with the schedule, too. I am in the Eastern time zone. My availability can be found on my profile. Looking forward to hearing from you.
And in case you are wondering, I do not offer free trials.

Love my Mandarin lessons. Rae, the instructor is patient, kind and informative.
My son had his first session with Rae and he enjoyed the conversation. He went to a mandarin immersion elementary school but is now at a school that doesn’t have mandarin so we wanted something to keep his mandarin going. Rae did a great job of getting him to speak and figuring out where he is. She kept him engaged, was patient, and the session seemed to flow great.Show More
I've only had my first lesson so far, but I was extremely pleased with Rae's approach and patience. I'm excited to keep the lessons going and see how far I can progress in this new challenge for me.
Rae is a wonderful teacher. I have a couple learning disabilities and have had many different Chinese tutors. Rae is by far the best because she is incredibly patient, genuinely wants you to understand the material, and makes sure to go at your own pace. She wants you to understand what you are learning and wants to minimize the stresses of learning a new language. Rae is fantastic at making me less intimidated with learning Chinese by breaking down the grammar of the language and learning it step by step. Her mission is to help you learn and not frustrate you. She is incredibly patient, intelligent, kind, and most importantly she genuinely cares about her students. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Chinese.Show More
My boy has really enjoyed the lessons with Rae so far. She is helping him with his pronunciation as well as learning basic vocabulary and handwriting.
Hard worker, nice materials, makes learning very enjoyable.
Very patient and a strong knowledge expert. Took the time to understand where the gaps were in order to properly close them. Looking forward to continue to work with Rae.
She focuses on practical learning and being able to speak and understand chinese you are likely to use on a daily basis. Patient with pronounciation correcting and adaptable to your level of learning.
We tried several tutors before deciding on Rae and she was excellent.
She is very patient and gives me a lot of time. I really enjoy the lessons. Highly recommended!
Rae is very knowledgeable, I plan on continuing lessons with her. The lessons are very well structured. Also she is good at communicating and responding to all my question between the lessons.
Rae taught me the basics of Chinese tones and some vocabulary. She was very organized and explains things well. Will definately book another session soon! Thanks
Rae 老师，was absolutely fantastic. She helped me with several pages of homework that I had already completed. She answered my questions and helped me to create more natural sentences. She also was wonderful with helping me to improve my pronunciation. She is patient, friendly, and very good at what she does. I will definitely be back for more lessons with this wonderful teacher!Show More
Rae is really well prepared and is excellent at breaking everything down so that it is easy to understand. She uses detailed PowerPoints and her lessons can be structured or relaxed depending on your learning style. Very good.
I thought the 1st one class was great
Excellent teacher! Rae is patient and understands the kids' pronounciation problem. I am confident that with Rae's lessons, kids will advance and take the HSK exam next year.
Excellent teacher! Patient and makes sure you have it right. A+
