About Rae L.

I offer online sessions for standard Mandarin Chinese. 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 and use PowerPoint presentations or e-textbooks for the sessions. You also have the option to order the textbook online to go with your study. I teach both everyday Chinese and business Chinese.
I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker from northern China where Mandarin Chinese is born. I graduated from a Chinese university and learned to teach a second language from a graduate school in the US and graduated with a 3.88 GPA and scholarships. I have three years of experience teaching Mandarin Chinese as well. I have worked with students from 6 to 80 years old, ranging from K-12, college, working and retired adults, and homeschooled students. Right now I am specialized in beginner Chinese. My passion is to be a language teacher. I think it would be great if I could help you learn Chinese while doing what I love. I am patient, easygoing, 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.
大家好! 我的母语是中文, 我能够准确地使用普通话和简体字。我教过中小学生中文, 辅导过大学生的中文作业, 也帮助过职场和退休人士提高汉语水平。我在本科毕业后移民到美国, 并获得了语言习得专业的硕士学位。我对语言教学很有热情。如果可以在你学习汉语的过程中助你一臂之力, 那将是我的荣幸。中文并不像大家想的那么难学, 而且学起来会相当的有趣。选择一个好老师很重要。所以赶快联系我吧!如果可以,请告诉我你曾有过的任何和中文相关的学习经历,你的学习目标, 以及你想要上课的时间。我会尽我最大的努力来满足你的需求。

Rae tutors our daughter. They work on vocabulary and simple reading. She makes the lesson informative and fun for our daughter. She is really patient and has been flexible with the schedule. We highly recommend her as a tutor for Chinese!

One of the marks of a good tutor is their skills in the language of the student. This helps them explain how to speak in the language the student is learning. Rae's pacing is great, her pronunciation is easy to understand (Beijing style Mandarin), and she writes it out in pinyin as she is speaking which helps learners who need to both hear and read pinyin to retain the information.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
