    Experienced Chinese Mandarin tutor for all levels!

    你好Nihao! Are you interested in learning Chinese? Have you been looking for an efficient and fun way to grasp it? As a Chinese mandarin native speaker and experienced tutor, I can help you!

    I have been teaching Chinese (Mandarin) to several English, French, and German native speakers in the past 5 years, of all levels. I helped them with speaking, characters recognising, writing, listening, reading and HSK exam preparations. Many of my students were MBA students developing their career in China. I have also tutored teenagers around 10-15 years old and received very positive feedback from the family. Knowing that Chinese is fundamentally different from European languages, I have found way to come around and explain the language in your perspective. And I am very excited to help you in this progress!

    I like to teach Chinese in real life settings. Depending on the student’s level, the class can take place in a bookstore, a park, a super market, a Chinese restaurant, where we will have conversations in Chinese. On the other hand, if you are keen to polish your writing and reading, I also have a set of materials to help you. Everything will be tailor made for your level, area of interest and adjustments will be made to motivate your learning.

    Are you motivated? Let’s give it a try and make yourself known to the world as a Chinese speaker!

    About Me

    Hello! My name is Zhilin. I am a Chinese who have lived outside home for five years. I am passionate about teaching Chinese and sharing Chinese cultures (and food) with friends from all over the world!

    I came to Geneva more than one year ago and worked for the International Committee of the Red Cross. Now I am on an assignment for United Nations in Geneva.

    Education

    I graduated with a bachelor degree in Business Administration and Global Studies in Asia's top university in Hong Kong, (2014-2018).

    I was the first place in Chinese College Entrance Examination (Gao Kao) in 2014 in my home city (7 million habitants). I had a top score in my Chinese examination as well.

    Experience / Qualifications

    During my study in Hong Kong, I tutored several MBA students who were ambitious in developing a career in China. I polished their speaking, listening, writing and reading. I tailor made my lessons according to their levels, learning experiences, needs and interests.

    I was also a family tutor for an German-American secondary student with her writing and Chinese expressions. I blended article reading, dictate, video watching into my teaching and my student found it a lot of fun!

    I have also helped several colleagues with zero Chinese knowledge from different backgrounds, to learn some survival Chinese before they travel to China!

    Learn Chinese language and culture (all levels)
    "It's Chinese"!? Maybe, but he is very mysterious and logical. With me, you will learn how this logic works, and you will also discover, the beauty of its originality. I give tutoring since 2010 and my students are all ages. (they are teenagers, adults, or retired) My classes are written and spoken, and I hope to be able to talk to you in Chinese. The goal is of course to be able to speak it. I base my texts on dialogues, stories, great moments of China, but also poems, songs, culture, etc. I personalize all my documents, so the level adapts to the interest of all. I have also created a "WhatsApp" group to make day-to-day learning easier, as it is important to keep it entertaining. I am really passionate about my work, and will be happy to teach you my native language.

    Peishan
    Chinese turor for Chinese/ Mandarin (simplified and traditional )
    Giving my background in Foreign Languages and Literature as my bachelor study, and Adult and Continuing Education as my master degree, I gain great professional abilities in languages and education. Since I was 18 years old, I've been offering language teaching to the students, who are from 5-70 years old. I possess a wide range of Mandarin teaching experiences that I've given one-to-one and group classes before, and even online classes to people all over the world, through which I gained all the experiences teaching people with all the different culture and also all levels from A1-C2, and even with the clients who need to prepare for Mandarin verification exams( HSK, Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì). When it comes to the most forgettable teaching experience I've ever had, I think it was my former job that I gave language and culture class in a community university for 3.5 years. There, I merged language teaching, diversified culture, with European and South-East Asian cooking, and it was certainly a great fun. I am now also working in the international school in Geneva for the IB exam system, which is pretty challenging, but it broadens my abilities. With more than 10 years of working in the Mandarin as well as English tutor/ teaching field, I believe my qualifications will match your learning requirements.

    Do you want to speak Chinese with confidence and use the right vocabulary?
    • My mother tongue is Mandarin. • I teach English and Chinese classes to children in 2 private schools. • To teach adults, I would focus on conversation and vocabulary. • I love Asian cuisine, you can cook together by practicing Chinese! • I give priority to spoken language but memorizing vocabulary is a must. • Among DIY activities, songs, cooking, drawing, painting. • I start the lessons with immersion, then I adapt how to learn by student.
