Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I am a native Chinese speaker. I am teaching children, adolescent, and adult, by group or 1:1 lessons. I design study plan according to student's needs. I also adjust teaching style based on student’s personality and pace. Main textbooks I use are HSK and Integrated Chinese. For business Chinese, I will craft contents according to your industry and nature of practice. I can conduct classes either in Mandarin only, or English and Mandarin to help better communication for some students.

Joan is very friendly. She makes learning Mandarin quite easy. She is also very patient and engaging. I will definitely recommend using her
Jermaine
I've tried learning Mandarin Chinese with numerous instructors before Joan to no avail. My prior experiences have been arduous at best. But, my recent experience with Joan has been the complete opposite. Her teaching style encourages you to be bold and enjoy the learning experience, which makes learning a more fun experience. I would highly recommend her as a Mandarin Chinese instruction to anyone who truly wants to learn the language.
Rakaan Alfarsi
Very comprehensive and supportive, easy to understand and takes an extra mile to help me with lessons after hours. Will always go back to Ms. Joan for future lessons.

Zhao Yang is the perfect teacher. She is attentative, patient, thorough, encouraging, and extremely informative. I am so glad that I chose to learn from her. She assessed my knowledge of Mandarin in the very first lesson.

The lessons are tailored to my interests and learning style. Not every teacher has the ability to teach in a way that caters to an individual's learning needs and abilities. Having this ability makes Zhao Yang (feichang hao!) great! Each session, she reviews what was taught in the previous lesson and homework given. She also gives me a game plan on what I should practice as well as tools that I'll need to help me practice. I feel more and more confident after each lesson. I really appreciate Zhao Yang!!!
Nathan G.
Zhao is an excellent teacher. She is patient and really understands how to present the material in a way that is easy to learn. I highly recommend!
Stephanie
Evgeniya is an amazing Russian teacher! I am an English speaker, and I live in a place where Russian is widely spoken. I have tried a few times to learn Russian, and this is the first time that I am optimistic that I will progress in learning to be more conversational. I would recommend this class to anyone!

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

As a fully qualified Chinese teacher I have been teaching Mandarin for 17 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 practice 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.

Super great teacher! She helps to make a lesson plan focused on what you need or want, for instance, helping me with conversational Chinese and reviewing characters. Instead of PowerPoint slideshows, she has me prepare little projects like talking about what I did last summer, or talking about my job. It really helps me get used to topics in Chinese that I would regularly speak about. Super friendly and super fun!
Greg Borossay
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.

"Wen laoshi is fantastic! She does a great job of explaining the vocabulary and sentence structures in ways that I can understand and takes time to work through tones. She is very friendly and understanding. If something comes up and I need to postpone a lesson or even cancel, she is always willing to accommodate. She is very fun to talk and I consider her a friend as much as a teacher."
