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!

Mariama
General Repetitrice and Support in Biology / Medicine
I am a student at the end of the year of Master in Human Medicine at the University of Geneva. Being calm and patient in nature, I try to build trust with my students to create a more relaxed environment, conducive to exchange and therefore learning courses. For me, the understanding of a course is mainly through a structured, imaged and especially personalized learning of different subjects to enable the student to sustainably integrate the key concepts that are useful to him. This type of contact is very important to me and is the basis of my interest and desire to teach. I believe that academic success is, of course, through learning but above all through an educational approach that takes into account several psychosocial factors that can influence children's success through an impact on their self-esteem. In my sessions, I attach great importance to identifying these factors and valuing the efforts of my students so that they become aware of their abilities and gain self-confidence. This course is for people of all ages and backgrounds who need tutoring or who wish to deepen their knowledge of biology / medicine. Students and future medical students accepted for regular courses and exam preparation! Do not hesitate to contact me, I will answer you with pleasure!

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. 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.
