    Mandarin, Chinese language acquisitions, HSK exams

    I specialize in tutoring Chinese mandarin, my mother tongue, since 13 years (5 years for kids under 12; 3 and 2 years respectively for Oxford and Sorbonne students; 3 years in the design of pedagogy at international schools).
    Highlights include HSK preparations, writing, and speaking. Aurélien Boissier who passed his national diplomacy exam at Paris in spring 2017 is a convincing successful story of my efficient teaching (this announcement has his consent).
    With my Ph.D in Oxford, I am also comfortable to teach English. Besides, I've passion to share my knowledge in Chinese philosophy (esp. Yi Jing) and Asian cooking.

    Chinese for all classes in Geneva by experienced teacher
    - English bellow - Ever wanted to speak Chinese? Of Taiwanese origin and having a 3-year experience in teaching Chinese language, I offer courses adapted to all levels and ages. My method adapts to each of my students, according to their motivation, to allow to make rapid progress in this direction. My classes are balanced between a theoretical learning of language and writing, as well as the development of oral expression. You always wanted to speak Chinese? I'm from Taiwan and already have a chinese language tutor for kids during 3 years. I propose chinese lessons, regardless of level or age. Most important for me in the sense of my students' motivation to learn the language, so they could make a quick improvement in their practice of language. My lessons are balanced between a theoretical approach and a fast development of the speaking ability.

    Peishan
    Chinese turor for Chinese/ Mandarin (simplified and traditional )
    Giving my background in Foreign Languages and Literature as my bachelor study, and Adult and Continuing Education as my master degree, I gain great professional abilities in languages and education. Since I was 18 years old, I've been offering language teaching to the students, who are from 5-70 years old. I possess a wide range of Mandarin teaching experiences that I've given one-to-one and group classes before, and even online classes to people all over the world, through which I gained all the experiences teaching people with all the different culture and also all levels from A1-C2, and even with the clients who need to prepare for Mandarin verification exams( HSK, Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì). When it comes to the most forgettable teaching experience I've ever had, I think it was my former job that I gave language and culture class in a community university for 3.5 years. There, I merged language teaching, diversified culture, with European and South-East Asian cooking, and it was certainly a great fun. With more than 10 years of working in the Mandarin as well as English tutor/ teaching field, I believe my qualifications will match your learning requirements.

    Private Yoga & Emotional Mastery Training. Learn to master your emotions and optimize your health & fitness.
    I provide a framework of self-analysis and concrete steps to help you free yourself from beliefs and habits that hinder your growth, keeping you on an emotional roller-coaster, and to develop those that support you. This training is undertaken through weekly discussion, note-taking and concrete actions to be taken each week. Yoga therapy such as work on chakra balancing and practices to connect with your spiritual being can be included in this program. The course is designed to: Provide you the flexibility to be able to stay in the comfort of your home whilst your yoga instructor comes to you. And give you the chance for one-on-one quality learning with a program designed specifically for you, according to your needs and preferences. My Yoga Teaching Philosophy: Many of my students, when they first come to me, express their disappointment with some of the yoga lessons they have visited. They find them to be either too much focused on the physical aspect and lacking in real substance and sense of community in the group or, on the other hand, too much focused on the spiritual/mental aspect without much challenge to the body. In my personal practice and during my lessons I try to work towards a balance between strength and relaxation, between action and introspection. I do not take myself too seriously, since, for me, this practice should be a joy - a discipline yes, but definitely not a dogma. I would like my students to be able to experience the power of what yoga can offer us and feel at ease with being just who they are: natural, without any need to live up to any ideas of who a yogi 'should' or 'should not' be. This, to me, is a process of allowing time and practice to take effect - a process which we experience both together, and individually in everyday life. All my programs are tailored to your needs and preferences. Yoga and Emotional Mastery training can be combined to deliver maximum value. This training is designed to guide you to develop greater consciousness and master your own sense of health and wellbeing. Meaning: you build up your own regular practice and habits that will remain with you over the long-term, way beyond the limit of our one-hour lessons!

    Everyone wants to succeed. Few are those who arrive ... But above all, what is success? It's up to you to make sense of it, it's up to you to define your goals, and it's up to you to get as close as possible to YOUR definition of the word. To succeed, there is a "recipe".

It is not a magic formula, but a journey that we will define together, adapted to your desires and your current situation, in order to evolve towards the goal that you cherish so much. I propose first of all a first meeting through which you will be able to expose your desires.

    Rachel
    Experienced Chinese mandarin tutor- simplified(China)/traditional(Taiwan & Hong Kong)
    Nihao! Are you interested in learning Chinese? Have you been looking for an efficient and fun way to grasp it? I can help you! Chinese is one of the most used languages in the world and a good command of Chinese can open many doors to career, studies and cultural exposure. I have been teaching Chinese to several English and French native speakers in the past four years. I helped them with speaking, characters recognising, writing, listening, reading and exam preparations. Most of my students were MBA students developing their career in China. Knowing that Chinese is fundamentally different from European languages, I have found way to come around and explain the language in your perspective. And I am very excited to help you in this progress! I like to teach Chinese in real life settings. Depending on the student’s level, the class can take place in a bookstore, a park, a super market, a Chinese restaurant, where we will have conversations in Chinese. On the other hand, if you are keen to polish your writing and reading, I also have a set of materials to help you. Everything will be tailor made for your level, area of interest and adjustments will be made to motivate your learning. Are you motivated? Let’s give it a try and make yourself known to the world as a Chinese speaker!

    Lena
    Chinese/ Chinois (Mandarin) Spoken Course for All Levels
    你好! I am Lena. I hold a bachelor's degree of Teaching Chinese as a Second Language, and I did my Master degree in Social Science in the UK. I am now currently doing an internship in Switzerland. My experience working and studying in different continents enabled me to understand different languages, and spread Chinese culture and language among my international friends. Chinese is a charming language with substantial historic and cultural contexts. If you feel like learning Mandarin, practice to get emotionally and situationally involved in the language is one of the most effective approach. In this way, you’ll remember things a lot better if you feel it when you learn it. This isn’t only my experience. In the courses, I will be able to provide suggestions for suitable learning materials, and help you to find a approach that suits you to improve your spoken Chinese. The content of the course will be designed based on your practical use and interest, and I will combine the most interesting and trendy issues with the topics to enable an enjoyable learning experience.The course could be delivered both online of offline (If you are currently in Geneva). Besides the mentioned above, I am very keen on discussing about the food, history, tourist attractions, and other cool stuffs in China, as well as my own interesting experiences in different countries. I also have knowledge and experience of Chinese Calligraphy, and it could be introduced and practiced in the courses too. If you are interested, feel free to ask a question or send me a message. Let's break down learning Mandarin while making new friends!
