    Marina
    Chinese Mandarin,10 years of experience,full time, patient,1-on-1 and group interesting classes, HSK, Daily Chinese, etc, 3 years to adultsS
    I am a full-time professional Chinese Mandarin teacher from the North of China where Mandarin comes from. I have been teaching for about 10 years as a teacher and school owner. I have my own school and website for studying Chinese. Student's ages are from 3 to adults. They are from all over the world. You can study with me online or come to my office. Classes can be one to one and a group class. I have been helping numerous people learn to speak Chinese and do exam HSK. Children always have fun learning Mandarin with me. I teach Mandarin for business purposes, traveling, YCT (for Children and teenagers),BCT (business Chinese), Conversational practice, Advanced level Chinese classes, etc. Any levels are all welcome. Classes type: HSK class: Level 1--Level 6 HSKK class: HSK speaking test (Beginner to advanced) Chinese grammar class BCT / Startup Business in China: Business Chinese (Beginner to Advanced) YCT class: Level 1--Level 6 for children to teenagers Easy steps to Chinese: 3-12 years old children There are some other classes welcome to messages me. I grew up and had educations in China. I moved to Europe for teaching Chinese from last year. I am fun, active, very patient and responsible. I have never come late to all of my classes for more than 10 years. For children classes I prepare songs, videos, cartoons, teaching and explaining at the same time, They learn really fast and never feel bored when they excited with a fun teacher and materials. I believe that interest is the best teacher. So I try my best to prepare before classes and send materials after classes to students. The classes can be taught in Chinese, English. For the virus reason, currently, all the office classes or home classes shift to my online classes. Thank you.

    English and Chinese native speakers with 8 years of teaching experience (all levels)
    My name is Anne, I completed my B.A. degree in English, my Master degree, and my Ph.D. degree in the UK (Edinburgh University and Manchester University). I have more than 10 years of private tutoring experience in the fields of English and Chinese. In addition, I have been teaching at the University of Manchester in the UK for more than 4 years in the subjects of Social Science (Economics, Philosophy, and Politics). My teaching methodology varies, depending on the personality, interests, and needs of the students. I often teach English and Chinese through real-life examples, such as through news, movies, music, and cultural events. Depending on what you want to learn, we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, vocabularies of a particular topic, or start at the basics learning phonics. Also, if you need professional academic advice on homework or essays at the university or colleges, I will be more than happy to help you out. I am also familiar with editing and proofreading students' resume/ cv/ motivation letter. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalized to your needs and abilities. The first class will evaluate your level and then we can start from there to personalize the best lesson plans for you to improve your English or Chinese. My lessons are fun, practical, and will improve your confidence in using English for work and pleasure. Come join me and try out!

    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. I am now also working in the international school in Geneva for the IB exam system, which is pretty challenging, but it broadens my abilities. 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.

    I'm a native Chinese who has a profound understanding of English. I'm very sociable and I like to help people practice their Chinese. We can talk about music, videos, history, ... anything! Personally, I've been working the past 5 years as a nurse in a international hospital in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China. I've been talking with Chinese-learners a lot within these past few years. We practice all kinds of Chinese vocabulary such as daily routine talk, all kinds of subjects, business vocabulary, ... 认识你很高兴! Kind regards, Emily

    Mandarin/Chinese class with shadowing practice in Taoyuan
    For the Chinese conversation in my class, we would role-play and you can try to speak more and more as you can. Don't be afraid to say something wrong. I invite you to make more and more mistakes when you use this language in my class. If you make more mistakes, you can learn more from them and be more impressive. I would help you so no worries! Just have fun together :)

    Mandarin Chinese classes for children / adults / business(native speaker)
    Dear friends, 亲爱的朋友你们好! If you want to learn a new language especially you don't have much time to feel that in the country, then you will have another option - talk to the native speaker online maybe it's a great way for you keep the natural language environment. and that's how I do before and it works very well. I gave Mandarine Chinese to some teenagers from the states and right now I am in Canada to teach the kids Chinese(they just begin from scratch). I worked for the exhibition company as a project director when I was in China and yes I know how to develop and make business from home and abroad. I have travelled to many countries and I like to share my story/experience and culture to different ones that they like and would like to know the oriental culture. I specialise in tutoring project, project management, business communications, clear business goal, social media. No matter you are a student or college or business requirement, just contact me and I will offer Chinese courses to you.

    Ruijiao
    Mandarin Chinese (all levels, all ages, all purposes)
    I have a Chinese teaching degree and for years I have been teaching students from all over the world the beautiful Chinese language, mostly only through Skype or other chatting programs. My students have been beginners up till people wanting to perfect their Mandarin. Some students only want to learn to talk a bit for a holiday, others want to be able to read and write. I enjoy making for each student a personal studying plan that fits their needs, and also the teaching material I will choose for each student individually. My youngest student started when he was 4, but I have also students who picked it up after retirement. The way I see it is that as long as you enjoy yourself, you are never too young or old to learn anything.

    Do you want to speak Chinese with confidence and use the right vocabulary?
    • My mother tongue is Mandarin. • I teach English and Chinese classes to children in 2 private schools. • To teach adults, I would focus on conversation and vocabulary. • I love Asian cuisine, you can cook together by practicing Chinese! • I give priority to spoken language but memorizing vocabulary is a must. • Among DIY activities, songs, cooking, drawing, painting. • I start the lessons with immersion, then I adapt how to learn by student.
