First degree certified teacher with 11 years of teaching experience to empower your Chinese learning journey

As a language teacher, I aim to teach you practical and functional Mandarin. As a culture teacher, I aim to give you a nuanced understanding of China. Besides being a teacher, I am also your coach, guiding you through the joyful and challenging moments of your journey of learning Chinese Language and Culture.

I have taught Chinese for 11 years, in Dutch middle schools. I am also teaching private lessons for adults, mostly for business purposes who have daily contact with Chinese companies and customers. Some of them are starting from 0, some of them have lived and worked in China for several years, and also students who majored in China studies, however, would like to improve their Chinese proficiency to native speaker level. I really enjoy teaching students with various backgrounds and experiences.

When princess Amalia, Princess of Orange is the heir apparent to the throne of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, chose to study Chinese during her middle school, Dutch television program RTL Boulevard has interviewed me. Also, together with my students in Dutch middle school, we are on national TV SBS 6 for the program "Holland van Boven'. There are several other interviews on local news in The Netherlands.

My private student describes me as: “Jessica is a great teacher and I am utterly happy to have met her. She is fun to learn with, but also has a very clear vision on where we should be heading and is able to exactly follow the path that was mapped out.”
My student comments on my lessons as: “The teacher is very active, and does a lot of preparations for the classes. The interaction is very good, talking a lot about all kinds of different topics helps improve my Chinese.”

The Chinese language is always considered to be a very difficult language. Actually, it is not fully correct. There are very practical and easy aspects of the Chinese language.

Would you also want to learn Chinese in a practical and fun manner? Please don't hesitate to contact me! You will enjoy your learning journey!

Xingying
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.

Through the personal tips/videos/songs/ interactive game or language missions, I'll guide you how to practice effectively and gains.
