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 (Mandarin) / English homework support / English conversations / English tutoring
I will be teaching Mandarin from the beginning and start explaining how it works. It does not have an alphabet, so be ready to enjoy a whole new different way of learning a language! You will learn pronouns, numbers, basic grammar, principal verbs, interrogation particles, time particles, and vocabulary, progressively. I will also be sending some exercises for you to practice what we have learned and have your character writing on point. ------------------ Would you like your children to have some help with their English homework? Or do you want to practice your spoken skills in English with someone? In any case, I will be happy to help! If there is anything you need, I’m always up for questions and clarifications! Do not worry about schedules. We can both be flexible whenever necessary. We don’t want to add up stress, but to have a good time discovering these amazing languages!

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.

Basic Chinese conversation AND 1V1 accompany YOU in training
Brief:( I am living UK , so we have the SAME time zone) The most important thing in learning a new language is patience, especially when learning a slightly more difficult language such as Chinese, French or Spanish, and we just need to find the right way to do it. In my courses, I offer three different approaches to choose from, as the ancient Chinese Confucius said: teach according to your ability. Include: Pin Yin, common sense, Frequently Used Words, Chinese culture, introduce the country,like, which city is the nice place to travel, popular applications, and so on.

Katka
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.

Learn Traditional Mandarin Chinese with a Taiwanese
Learn how to understand and speak Chinese as well as read and write the traditional characters with a Taiwanese native. Start from the basics of Bopomofo/Zhuyin so you can pronounce correctly and type in the virtual world. Learning Chinese is only possible through hard work, therefore there will be lots of homework especially in writing which will be corrected. Live classes are intended for hearing and speaking skills.

Huong
Private Chinese/ Vietnamese teacher in Hanoi/ Online (to French/English/Vietnamese speakers)
As you studied your mother tone, learning Chinese also start from listening, copy, speak, read and write. Pronunciation is the very first step to start to speak a language, and it's inseparable from listening. Then from word, we build phrases, then conversations by differents topics that are useful in daily life. Through the personal tips/videos/songs/ interactive game or language missions, I'll guide you how to practice effectively and gains.

Christina Yen-Chun,
Mandarin Chinese, 9 years of experience, Daily Chinese, patient
Chinese is both deep and interesting. Its grammar is simple, but the reading and writing are full of "surprises". I am Taiwanese and very happy to share and teach my native language. I live in Delémont, Switzerland. In Taiwan, I taught Chinese to foreigners; i have been in international business for almost 20 years and have been exposed to cultures from over 50 different countries. Everyone is always full of freshness and curiosity for Chinese ... Now I will share with you the pleasure and the harvest of learning Chinese. My course is mainly oral, and at the end I hope to be able to speak to you in Chinese. The goal is obviously to be able to express oneself. I personalize all my documents so that the level corresponds to everyone's interests. My students are regardless of their age. (They are teenagers, adults and even retirees) I also created a "WhatsApp" group to promote learning on a daily basis because it is important to continue having fun. I am really passionate about my job and would love to teach you my native language.

Mandarin Chinese; Traditional Mongolian language and script and Cyrillic script
I am a doctoral student majoring Chinese language and literature. I speak Mandarin Chinese and Mongolian. My goal is to keep student intrested in learning languages and cultures and showed the diversities in China. The focus of each class is to learn vocabulary, grammar and practice listening and speaking based on different topics with different culture tips.

Shohnura
English and Chinese courses for beginner and elementary students
In my online classes your child learns the language informally and with all the senses, through games, singing, movement, painting and above all fun. The emphasis is placed on understanding the language and speaking freely. The vocabulary is slowly but steadily increased with many age-appropriate teaching materials and games so that the children are soon able to hold simple conversations in English and understand short stories. Children learn basic grammar intuitively and it is consolidated with special games and exercises. Reading, writing and grammar rules are added according to age and level. The first six years of a child’s life are the most important for the development of the human brain. During this period of time all of the important connections between the individual brain cells are created in the brain. The more influences the young child receives the more diversely the brain develops. Studies have proven that learning a second language at this age positively influences development and intelligence. But even after the age of six a second language can still be learned effortlessly and almost without an accent. However the ability to learn effortlessly is irretrievably lost at the beginning of puberty - around the age of 11 years. If the child has already learned a second language at pre-school and primary school age it has a great advantage in later life during lessons at school: the child has already acquired comprehensive knowledge and can prepare for complex learning in a simple and relaxed manner.

Learn Chinese from A1 to C2, from having fun to prepare test
I run private lessons, where all levels are welcome. But if you’re a total beginner then I offer basic classes to help you find the way to get into it. I develop diverse methods of teaching for the students. For the around 5-8 years old kids, I would like to set certain games to play with them, thereby the kids can learn the new language during the interaction and communication. In this way, different media, like color pictures, puppets, or storybooks are essential to make the course very attractive. For the teenager or advanced students, a structuralized teaching content based on scenarios or textbook could help the students to develop their language capacity efficiently in different aspects – listening, reading, speaking, and writing. Besides, I would like to give a deeper perspective for the Chinese- not only learning the language from the textbooks, but also the knowledge of the language, the culture, and the literature. Also, based on your need and situation, we choose different textbooks and make a personal teaching plan for you.
