Hele goeie docent , zeer duidelijk !
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!

Are you having some trouble to prepare the university/ college economics exam by yourself? Then send me a message. I have good experience in tutoring university/ college students in Micro & Macro Economics. My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. With my help, my student is more confident to work on their economic exams.

Jiaqi
Confucius Institute Certified Native Chinese Teacher
你好!Grüezi!Hola!Hello! I'm a Confucius Institute (the ONLY globally recognized official institution for teaching Chinese to speakers of other languages) certified Mandarin teacher. In addition to giving private Mandarin courses over Apprentus, I also teach Chinese at multiple SIS Swiss International Schools in the German-speaking part of Switzerland. I have vast first-hand experience in teaching foreign languages to both children and adults. The predominant features you will find in my class are the tailored-made teaching materials and methods that are customized for your specific study goals (Beginner Chinese, Conversational Chinese, Business Chinese, Preschooler Chinese, YCT, HSK...etc.). As a language learner myself (B.A. major in Spanish and currently studying German), I have great patience and willingness to help on your journey towards Chinese proficiency because I know how frustrating it could be at times. Being in the shoes of a student for years also enables me to better instruct you, as I understand very well what are the things the learner would find helpful. I welcome students of all age groups and prior proficiency levels. Looking forward to sharing my knowledge of Chinese language and culture with you:)

Meetings and lessons of Italian language and culture. Learning italian and about Italy is always an immersion in a millennia-old history, in the art and traditions of the Italian culture, which fascinates us again and again. Language, conversation, preparation for various language certificates… "Thanks to the mutual dependence of thought and speech, it seems very clear that languages do not really serve to expose the truth already known, but rather to discover the truth that was previously unknown. Their diversity is not a diversity of sounds and signs, but of worldviews." W. Von Humboldt (1820)
