Nihao. I’m a native-born Chinese who has vast experience of teaching Mandarin to English speakers across all levels and ages. I have been teaching Mandarin for more than 10 years at various Language Institutes, and have taught at private schools for total of 5 years. At schools, I developed and implemented CFL curriculum for introductory and advanced level of students. I am currently working as a Chinese instructor at a large international language company. In my class, materials will be designed according to the students' background and needs. I feel fulfilled after spending numerous hours preparing for each and every creative teaching session and then see my students excited and benefited. I come across as a very pleasant and friendly teacher, who has a great passion for teaching my native language.

I've had a great experience so far. Yiju is patient, enthusiastic, and fun. Her lessons are easy to get into and the time flies by really fast. She's very engaging on cultural topics, illustrates a variety of ways to say something, and is generally very organized and punctual. She has been very accommodating to my requests and helping me learn in a way that works for me. Since I had my own study materials before I started lessons with her, she has worked with me to practice the material I studied already. I would definitely recommend her.

Wonderful instructor. We look forward to continuing lessons later this year. She was very professional and made my 15 year old daughter comfortable with learning Chinese. She tailored the lessons to fit her aptitude. I would highly recommend her. She also met us at the local community center which was very helpful logistically.
