I appreciate her enlightenment of jazz to me. Mandy was very responsible in class, she would begin with some warming –up vocal exercises with us, with explanations about how to do them correctly, and explain the different characteristics of jazz music in detail, such as rhythms, forms, harmony etc. She also paid great attention to examples and communication. After class, Mandy also gave us some useful exercises and taught us to use different devices and APP for practicing so that we could better master singing skills. In Mandy, I can see her great passion for music. Besides jazz, Mandy has always been dedicated to combining Eastern and Western cultures. She is a good teacher with passion and heart." - Ally "Mandy practising teacher and a nice person. I've known her for several years. She had taught me a lot with vocal technique and Jazz knowledge. She's very patient and kind when she's teaching students. No matter if we did well or not, she would go through with us over and over again. Meanwhile, Mandy is also a very talented singer and musician. She did a lot of perfect stage performances. She is one of the best singers in China. Although she has already gotten a lot of achievements, she still keeps enterprising and self-disciplined and never stops learning and improving herself." - Baixue "Mandy is a teacher who is particularly good at guiding students. She teaches students following their aptitude and seizes the characteristics of each student. I always feel relaxed and happy in her lessons. Also, I understood all she taught me in the lessons. I highly recommend her!!!" - Grecia "Mandy is a very passionate and patient teacher. I have learned a lot from her singing & music theory lessons. When I encountered problems, she was always willing to help me and patiently answer my questions. She also uses different methods and provides more references to me to think better and learn and comprehend vocal music in the long term. I am very grateful to Ms Chen because I have been greatly motivated to feel the charm of vocal music after having lessons with her, which inspires me to learn and practice more vocal music." - Zoe

    Learning Chinese through poetry (Entry level to advanced level)
    If you would like to know more about the culture, learning through its literature is the best way. I'll teach the formation of words/characters, the usage and the logic behind their formation through a carefully selected group of poems ranging from contemporary poetry to classic poetry. It doesn't require prior knowledge, as long as you enjoys a little contemplative journeys through words and cultures.

    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.
