I am an absolute beginner and am very happy with the way Shan is helping me getting the foundation right. She throws in some Chinese culture as well because she knows I like it! Happy to be on my learning journey with her.
She really knows what she is teaching.
Super nice teacher, very easy to understand!
Shan is an amazing teacher. She has a great tailored teaching system and is well prepared. I definitely recommend her to other students.
What I like about Shan is that she really is a good listener. She takes time to find out what you want and what you need to improve. With that knowledge the set up for the class is created. Very nice indeed. And the lessons are fun!

Mona
A native Mandarin Chinese teacher with 15+ years teaching experience
I grew up in Beijing and has been living in Hong Kong for 20 years. I got my Putonghua teaching certificate at Hong Kong Chinese University and has been awarded the first-class grade in the National Putonghua Proficiency Test. I have been teaching Mandarin for over 15 years and have also worked as a Mandarin Chinese curriculum designer and instructor. My young students are mainly from GSIS, FIS, HKIS, AISHK, Kettett School, Hong Kong Academy, ESF, ISF, Hong Kong Japanese School. Besides the IB, I am familiar with IGCSE Chinese, as well as AP Chinese requirements. My adult courses are carried out in accordance with the HSK levels from Beginner onwards. I am using the good HSK framework, to help students progress milestone by milestone. I teach any degree of students, so even if you are a beginner, don't worry. In our first class, I will spend a little time asking about your needs, what class do you want to take, which allows me to find the right materials to make textbooks. I will design a course according to the needs of the students. Whether it is listening, speaking, or reading, I will make a textbook for you, so you can review it after class, which will make you progress quickly. If you have any questions during class or after class, please feel free to tell me. In the course of learning, I will use the example sentence instead of the explanation, so that you can clearly know the context in which the sentence can be used. You will have a textbook for each class, I will also give you homework after class if you want to practice more. You are also welcome to take a conversation with me. You can talk about any topic you are interested in, which will greatly enhance your conversational skills.
