Tingli
Chinese Mandarin lessons for all levels, online or offline
I am a native Chinese Mandarin speaker with the Mandarin proficiency certificate at teacher's level (as you may know, not every Chinese speaks standard Mandarin; some are with strong accents). I already have two years experience in teaching Chinese online. My students are generally the adults from all over the world. I teach them Pinyin and tones, helped them with the grammar and conversational skills. I can also teach HSK course by request. I tailor the teaching methods based on the levels and the requirements of the students. During the past 1 year, I've developed a special way to help students practice Pinyin, especially tones, which I got a lot of positive feedbacks from my students. For the conversational practice, I am good at keeping the conversation flow. I can direct the conversation in a way that suits your current language level, and you will get plenty time of practicing speaking. I will also blend the new words we've learned into the conversation, so that you can practice and master it in a natural and relaxing way. I am patient, enthusiastic, upbeat and responsible. The greatest thing for me is to see you make progress step by step. (Sorry, my Dutch level is still low, so I can only teach by speaking English.)

Zejia
Easy and Fun Chinese class (adult/child; online/offline)
I love teaching and it has always been my passion. I have obtained my certification in teaching. In fact, I have been teaching for almost 4 years and my students come from different countries with different backgrounds and from all walks of life. I have taught kids and adults both online and offline. My teaching style is also customized according to the level and goal of the students. I find ways to be creative all the time and acquire new things and skills in my spare time. Making friends is one of my best skills and I am pretty good at adapting to new environment and new situation. So in short, I am very friendly and I easily get along well with everyone. Learning Chinese is not just about enhancing your vocabulary or your skills, improving your accent, nor perfecting your grammar. Learning a certain language is about bridging gaps and breaking barriers. So in my class, you would expect that you are not going to learn, but at the same time, you are going to have fun-filled moments during my class.
