    Chinese tutoring for all-leveled learners in person or online

    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.
    4. to speak Chinese as much as possible ( explain in English, Dutch or French when necessary ).

    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.


    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.

    Voulez-vous parler chinois avec confiance et utiliser le bon vocabulaire?
    • Ma langue maternelle est mandarin. • J’enseigne des cours anglais et chinois aux enfants dans 2 écoles privées. • Pour enseigner aux adultes, je me concentrerais sur la conversation et le vocabulaire. • J’adore la cuisine asiatique, on peut cuisiner ensemble en pratiquant chinois! • Je donne priorité à la langue parlée mais mémoriser le vocabulaire est un must. • Parmi les activités du bricolage, chansons, cuisine, dessin, peinture. • Je commence les cours en façon d’immersion, et après j’adapte la façon d’apprendre personne par personne.

    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.

    Apprendre la culture et la langue chinoise- Mandarin
    Bonjour, étudiante en droit et en philosophie (master), je propose des cours particuliers de Mandarin. D’origine shanghaïenne, j’offre mes services à ceux qui s’intéressent à la langue et à la culture chinoises. Mon but est de faire progresser la connaissance linguistique de l’élève sans trop le surcharger, et tout en restant dans une atmosphère ludique. Pour que l’expérience linguistique soit enrichissante et intéressante, j’intègre, en outre, des éléments culturels, littéraires et sociaux dans ce cours. De manière générale, les cours comprennent quatre parties, c’est-à-dire l’oral, l’écrit, l’audition et la compréhension culturelle. Pour ceux qui commencent l’apprentissage, il y a également une partie d’écriture élémentaire (PIN YIN et l’étude des idéogrammes de base). Mais, je peux également adapter les cours en fonction des exigences particulières de l’élève (examen, connaissance rapide pour un voyage d’affaire, etc.) En général, je propose un travail hebdomadaire (la révision du vocabulaire, la lecture d’un extrait ou le visionnage d’un film chinois (pour les élèves avancés), etc.) et évalue l’avancement du cursus une fois par mois afin de remédier rapidement à certaines lacunes. Merci de vouloir me faire confiance et à bientôt !

    Mandarin Chinese and English Tutoring to Expats in Brussels
    I have studied Chinese since the age of 11, and lived for two years in China. There I studied intensive Mandarin Chinese courses at Chinese Universities in Beijing and Wuhan. Therefore, I am well aware of the struggles of learning Chinese. Not only am I now fluent in Chinese (HSK level 5), but I have also learnt how to most effectively learn Mandarin. I will make an individual plan with the student, teach pinyin, pronunciation, tones, characters, phrases, grammar, idioms, everyday language and much more. I will also share my best tips when studying Mandarin. I have extensive experience in teaching English to Chinese children ages 5-17. I was both a private tutor and teacher at local Chinese high schools when living in China. Therefore, I can assist in teaching English to expats living in Brussels

    Chinese language and studies by college-educated native speaker
    I'm a 30-year-old Chinese man currently residing near Schuman Roundabout, 1000 Brussels. I have a valid long-term visa allowing me to work here. I'm university-educated in China and have been working since mid-2011 with a top news organization where my job is to write Chinese- and English-language articles. My job actually asks me to understand Chinese politics and economics, both from within the Chinese state but also from outside. Therefore I'm offering not only the Chinese language, but also a balanced and reasoned perspective about China. I'm well-mannered and patient. I'll admit I haven't taught the Chinese lanuage - Chinese mandarin, spoken by 1.4 billion people in the Chinese mainland - professionally. But I think we will work it out. I can also stay online via instant messaging apps to answer your questions from time to time. I live in a two-bedroom, one-living room apartment all by myself so it's OK if you want to come to my place. I can also travel by public transport. I'm actually quite flexible - workdays and weekends could all work for me. If you are interested, pls drop me an email. I'll write back ASAP.
