Overview

I am a Chinese girl and I graduated from Purdue University. Teaching Chinese is my biggest hobby and I been doing it for 2 years already. My students including 70 years old grandma, working adults, college students, middle school students, primary school students, and even 2 years old baby. Some of my students today can already speak pretty fluent Mandarin.

The spirit of my classes is "humane". I will make unique curriculum base on your different situation, and always adjust the classes base on your needs and interests. I won't require you to buy giant books because I believe everyone is different and no book in the world can teach you as efficient as a "special made" material for you. Also our schedule could be very flexible, I understand that everyone is busy and sometimes you may need to change the time a little bit. Just let me know beforehand, and I will figure out the schedule with you together.

Tell me what do you want to learn, and I will make the classes only for you, no matter it's for business, for travelling, or for school. I will try my best to make the class not only efficient, but also interesting.

Sissy is very nice and so helpful. The half hour went by so quickly. Although the internet connection wasn't always so good, it was still a very good lesson.

Sissy had the patience to work with a 40 something new to Chinese. A huge milestone in the first class, even though I had technology issues on my side. Sissy is a great instructor.

Sissy has been great. She's very accessible, patient and tries to structure the classes based on your individual progress rather than trying to force specific lesson plans. She's been able to work around my schedule when need be, and has always taken the time to answer any questions I might have outside of classes. I would happily recommend Sissy to anyone else.

On time. Very patient and explains everything thoroughly. Reviews the previous lesson at the beginning of each class. Doesn't make you feel stupid for not remembering something from the previous lesson! Great!

My 11 year old daughter loves Sissy. She is kind, cheerful, energetic and engaging. I was not sure how my daughter would do with this online learning since we had never tried anything like this before. Sissy is easy to work with, modifies the lesson appointments as needed based on our busy schedule, as well as my daughters learning progress. Thank you Sissy!!

She is really nice and has a lot of patience. She explains how to pronounce the words really well. She doesn't only teach the words but also the history behind them and the way modern people use them and Chinese things. In all, we are 100% satisfied with her and my daughter has learned and is learning a lot.
