About Me

Have been working in corporate world for the past 20 years, now wish to share the passion of reading / speaking / writing Chinese language with people living in / nearby Switzerland.

Travelled to quite a number of countries before and wish to share the knowledge not only of Chinese language (and other Asian languages if possible) but generally Asian culture to people who like to explore beyond own boundaries in terms of cultural differences and languages.

Teaching classes not limited to merely reading / work book exercises but also authentic Asian experiences such as cooking and festival celebration (depends on occasions).

Despite you being a beginner or intermediate leaner, I could design the course according to your needs, be it for your school project, or life-long learning experience.

Education

Experience / Qualifications

A business analyst for an international bank in the past, now being a house maker would like to share the passion of speaking/writing my mother tongue (which I'm also qualified and experienced in teaching it since my college time) to those who are interested in Chinese language.

Jiaqi
Specialized in Teaching Children - 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. I'm also an official YCT (Youth Chinese Test)/ HSK (Chinese Proficiency Test)/ HSKK (Chinese Proficiency Spoken Test) test examiner. In addition to giving private lessons, I also teach Chinese at international schools and lead Mandarin immersion Spielgruppe (playgroup) in the German-speaking part of Switzerland. My speciality is teaching children between the age of 2.5 and 12 in an immersive and interactive learning environment. By means of guided game-playing, painting, story-reading, drama activities, song-singing, dancing, and handcraft-making, kids achieve organic language acquisition while having a lot of fun. The predominant features you will find in my class are tailor-made teaching materials and methods that are customized to best suit your specific study objectives (Preschooler Chinese, K-12 Chinese, YCT, HSK, Beginner Chinese, Conversational Chinese, Business Chinese...etc.). As a language learner myself (B.A. major in Spanish and currently studying German), I have great patience and willingness to help you on your journey towards Chinese proficiency, because I know how frustrating it could get at times. Being in the shoes of a linguistics student for years also enables me to better instruct you, as I understand very well what are the things a 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:)
