Confucius Institute Certified Native Chinese Teacher *Specialized in Teaching Children

你好!Grüezi!Hola!Hello!

I'm a Confucius Institute (the ONLY globally recognized official institution for teaching Chinese to speakers of other languages) certified Mandarin teacher.

I'm also an official YCT (Youth Chinese Test)/ HSK (Chinese Proficiency Test)/ HSKK (Chinese Proficiency Spoken Test) test examiner.

In addition to giving private lessons, I also teach Chinese at international schools and lead Mandarin immersion Spielgruppe (playgroup) in the German-speaking part of Switzerland. My speciality is teaching children between the age of 2.5 and 12 in an immersive and interactive learning environment. By means of game-playing, story-reading, song-singing, and handcraft-making, kids achieve organic language acquisition while having a lot of fun.

The predominant features you will find in my class are tailor-made teaching materials and methods that are customized to best suit your specific study objectives (Preschooler Chinese, K-12 Chinese, YCT, HSK, Beginner Chinese, Conversational Chinese, Business Chinese...etc.).

As a language learner myself (B.A. major in Spanish and currently studying German), I have great patience and willingness to help you on your journey towards Chinese proficiency, because I know how frustrating it could get at times. Being in the shoes of a linguistics student for years also enables me to better instruct you, as I understand very well what are the things a learner would find helpful.

I welcome students of all age groups and prior proficiency levels. Looking forward to sharing my knowledge of Chinese language and culture with you:)

Amazing teacher for children with lots of fun activities.
Jiaqi has adopted her teaching approach to the age 5 and 6 of our sons and created a tailer-made sessions that contain crafting, drawing and game-playing that our boys love very much. While they really enjoy the sessions and the interaction is great we see the progress: our guys start teaching us Mandarin, read signs on all chinese products and show to their friends all the crafting they made together with Jiaqi. I'm happy to see that they learn Mandarin in such an organic way and highly recommend Jiaqi for any kind of learning classes with kids!
Jiaqi is wonderful with our 5 year old son; she makes learning Mandarin so fun and easy! She is always on time, well prepared, has great learning materials including gadgets, songs and activities. Highly recommended!
Jiaqi teaches Chinese to our 6 and 4 year olds and has really impressed us with her engaging teaching style and excellent preparation before and after classes. The kids enjoy learning the language and look forward to the lessons.

Mandarin-Chinese is not only an interesting communication language (which is spoken by 1.5 billion people) but also the most effect tool for those of you who are interested in Chinese culture and people. This could be an official language course but also can be just for mutually understanding each other and share the knowledge.
