I specialize in tutoring Mandarin Chinese for children, adults, and students. My goals are:

1. to teach you standard Chinese without any strange accents.
2. to give you lots of related and contemporary examples to make you understand the evolution and use of the characters.
3. to compare Chinese and Western cultures to give you a clearer idea of the backgrounds and history of China.

About Me

I'm a fast learner and good explainer. All my students can understand me perfectly well when they have questions about Chinese. From my point of view, it's always important for the tutor to keep the learning interesting and updated to the time, for the learner to keep motivated and spend some time on the learning.

Education

I was born and raised up in China and have a master diploma in social science in one of the best university in Beijing. My GPA ranking is the first. I got a B2 diploma in Dutch during just one year so I know how to master a language fast.

Experience / Qualifications

I've been tutoring Chinese in Dutch and English for more than five years and help lots of Chinese learners to get great progress in this language. Some of them have successfully got a good degree in Chinese.

Chinese lessons for everybody - first speaking than reading!
I think that the most important part of learning Chinese is actual speaking. Of course, reading, writing and grammar it’s also interesting part of this language, but the Chinese characters won’t save you in the conversation, especially with a wrong pronunciation. The lesson is just about you though and it will depend only on you which part of the language learning will be emphasized and which will stay in th background. And I will do my best to make learning exciting and enriching.

Hoe het Chinese niveau effectief te verbeteren, van nul tot vloeiend gesprek
Steeds meer mensen zijn van plan het Chinees te gaan leren vanwege de reizen, de werkbehoeften of gewoon omdat ze nieuwsgierig en geïnteresseerd zijn in de taal. Het uitspraak- en schrijfsysteem van het Chinees is heel anders dan dat van de Nederlandse en Latijnse talen, en het wordt ook een enorm obstakel bij het leren van Chinees. Het is de doel van de cursussen die ik geef om je te helpen alle obstakels in het Chinese leerproces op te lossen. Als student Engelse literatuur kan ik de relatie tussen talen begrijpen en hoe ik u kan helpen deze relatie tot stand te brengen.

Chinese Mandarin lessons for all levels, HSK, business or just for fun :)
I am a certified Chinese Mandarin teacher who have already had two years experience in teaching Chinese to students around 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.)

Customized Easy and Fun Chinese class (online/offline)
With the certification in teaching, I have been teaching for almost 5 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 so the books and video materials I use in my class are always fun! 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 only going to learn, but at the same time, you are going to have fun-filled moments during the quality time we are gonna spend together. Making friends is one of my best skills and I easily get along well with people. I believe we will learn something from each other. Couldn't wait to know you :) Just send me a request and I am ready to talk more with you at first!

Chinese Mandarin Lesson for all levels, online and offline
I am a Chinese teacher. Currently, I live in Rotterdam, the Netherlands🇳🇱. I can offer online and offline classes at all ages and levels. The offline class is only for students based in the Netherlands. 🎓 master degree in linguistics certificate of teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages 🇨🇳 two years’ teaching Chinese to adults in China 🇫🇷 two years teaching children (5-15yrs old) at an international school in France 🇳🇱 currently teaching children from 4 yrs old at a Chinese school in the Netherlands ❤️ languages 🇨🇳🇬🇧🇫🇷🇳🇱 travel theatre music museum My teaching approach is to integrate the stories of Characters into lessons because I believe that the most powerful element of Chinese is its characters and they are the root of this language. The basic characters were originally drawings, which are closely related to their origin, culture, and history. Therefore I have a special interest in telling stories of Chinese characters and more importantly encouraging students to discover its beauty and build a relationship with them. If you learn some stories or even tell some stories by yourself, it'll be easier for you to understand the language and culture. Apart from learning characters, the purpose of the class is to enable: - beginners to communicate in Chinese for daily use purpose and read and write in short paragraphs; - intermediate students to communicate easily with native speakers and read and write short articles; - advanced students to communicate fluently with native speakers over a wide range of topics and read and write long articles. Learning materials including homework are designed/selected by myself based on students' level and needs. If you'd like to learn Chinese with me, please feel free to contact me or book lessons directly!

Ruiqi
Chinese Tutor, Chinese coach for public speaking, communicative skills and pronunciation.
Learning Chinese isn't as stressful as it seems. The key is to have fun and to constantly practice with a native speaker. I teach Chinese for both speaking, writing and reading. I have been tutoring Chinese for years and I have designed various exercises for learning Pinyin, practicing standard pronunciation with gesture as well as daily communicative exercises. During the lesson, I'd love to my students to speak Chinese as much as they can. Trust me, It's the best way to learn. I also plan game&movie events regularly to help my students get a closer look to the culture.
