I am both patient and enthusiastic as a teacher. I speak Mandarin Chinese as my native language, and can help my students progress to a high level. Once I have determined the student's level, I work with them to help them improve according to their goals.

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.

About Joan

I was born and raised in China, and had about 12 years working experience in China before I moved to US in 2018. My background allows me not only to speak the language, but also to understand the culture, social norms and professional practice. Besides teaching I am performing audio book recording i

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.

With the current COVID-19 virus crisis, I have been shifting all my students to online classes. Check out my pictures to see my online classroom set up, or feel free to send me a message if you have questions! :)

Mandarin is a musical language that's quickly taking over the world, you'll have lots of fun learning this language.

I was born and raised in Singapore, and am fluent in both English and Mandarin. I can read, write and speak at a bilingual, native proficiency in English and professional proficiency in Mandarin.

I'll teach you depending on your level and age. For kids, I use fun, interactive storytelling. For the adults, I'll dive into concepts like the origins of the language, nuances of the intonations, all the while teaching you vocabulary and sentence structure. I'll also adjust my lessons based on your feedback, your learning style and your goals!

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I am a native Chinese speaker. I can speak five languages. I have years of languages (Chinese & English) teaching experience. I am certified to teach in public schools in China. I believe interaction and immersion are effective approaches to learn a new language. Learning a new language with a native speaker is ten times efficient than learning from language apps. Lessons are customized. Communicative language and Chinese culture would be prioritized while making lesson plans. To learn a new language, it's not simply about the language itself. The more you know about the culture, the better you appreciate the language.

About Guifang

I teach K-8 grades students Chinese speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation through presentations, visual arts, songs and other various types of activities. I also run a after school Chinese club. Other than my

We could not be happier with the lessons, preparation and structure. Our child enjoys the study and is enthused. The ease with which virtual sessions and textbooks are integrated is refreshing and aligns with what we expect outside of our local school district

Guifang is very patient and helpful. I am looking forward to our remaining lessons.

Guifang is an outstanding teacher. I started at zero and did not know where to start. She has planned out my learning journey and got me up to speed really fast. She makes the lessons fun and engaging. The lessons have been tailored to my needs.

Guifang's experience as a teacher shines through in her lessons.

Alexandra
As someone who wasn't able to take Mandarin at my university, it was wonderful to be able to maintain and especially improve my improvisational speaking skills with HaiBo. It's so wonderful to talk about current events and learn relevant vocabulary. I feel that I'm getting more use out of her lessons compared to a traditional class!

HaiBo does a great job pushing me to learn as much as I can, but will take the time to slow down when necessary. She is a great teacher and also very kind and understanding and is willing to work with my schedule. I highly recommend.

"We are absolutely thrilled with our experience with Tammy. My two sons meet with her online to review the Mandarin language they take at school. The extra 30 min. a week of conversation and tone work is invaluable. I would rate Tammy a 10/10 as she sends highlights, a review and suggestions of study for the week after each lesson. If a person can have teenage boys look forward to "extra" Chinese weekly, they deserve a medal!"

"HaiBo is very patient! I have been studying Chinese on my own for quite a while, but definitely need help with tones. She goes over and over them with me until she feels I've done them right! She is kind enough to put reviews of words, sentences, phrases in the form of flashcards on an app so I can review them over the course of the week. We have needed to reschedule several times and she has been flexible enough to do that for me, too! I have reviewed stuff I thought I knew and have learned new vocab, but most importantly, we have USED that vocab in sentences and I feel like I'm actually improving my spoken Chinese! In addition, I have been working on learning characters with HaiBo and I am surprised how many I know!"

"Zhao Yang Lin is perfect. My granddaughters Juliet, four, and Cosette, two, will love her. Give me a month and they will be on the road.

I am reluctant to praise Ms. Lin too highly for fear others will gobble up her time before I learn to read Renmin Ribao. But what the hell. I have an obligation to society.

Fortunately, I have a chunk of money I can devote to spending on her time.

In two or three weeks, the President will be sending me $1,200. Let us devote all of it for my lessons and that of my family.

Please let me know whether you are willing to accept this money as an IOU that I can spend freely now.

Meanwhile, there is this:

I had my first Mandarin lesson today. This is a chart showing the different meanings of the same word. Initially, the notion of tones intimidated me. Depending on tone, if you do not use the correct one, you can call my mother a horse and a horse my mother."
