Let me make Chinese simple for you!

Hundreds of children, adolescents, adults, and seniors have found success in Mandarin with me - that is why I don't need but WANT to do this! Having lived in and done business all over Asia, including several trips to Hong Kong, Singapore, half a year in China, and several years in Taiwan, I know what you do and do not need to learn. I can teach you how to make an impression!

My passion boils down to a unique 4-step methodology in tutoring that is entirely focused on and catered to YOU:

First, we make the path to comprehension very clear.
Second, we identify what it is that you REALLY want to learn.
Third, I then cater my lessons to teaching YOU to teach YOURSELF what YOU want to learn about this language! Got it?
Fourth, you don't need me anymore (unless you still want to practice with me). :-)

My background and qualifications include a BA in Mandarin Chinese, an MS in international business from the Thunderbird School of Global Management, an official OPI certification of advanced-high for spoken Mandarin and advanced-low for written Chinese, seven years of teaching Mandarin to every walk of life, and 1000s of hours of face-to-face student/client coaching.

So reach out! While I won't pretend that Chinese is easy, it's more doable than you think!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chinese

My background and qualifications include a BA in Mandarin Chinese, an MS in International Business from the Thunderbird School of Global Management, experience in China, Taiwan, HK, and Singapore, an official OPI certification of Advanced-High for spoken Mandarin and Advanced-Low for written Chinese, 7 years of teaching Mandarin to every walk of life, and 1000's of hours of face-to-face student/client coaching.

ESL/ESOL

While living in Taiwan and China I helped many aspiring English learners improve their English. Using both the direct and indirect method, I have also taught professionally to native Mandarin speakers who have come to the United States and needed help with the language and cultural assimilation. Whether it's help with speaking, reading, writing, listening, or just learning to fit in to a new culture, I can help give you confidence and make learning a new culture and language enjoyable!

Excellent tutor, knows his stuff — I really enjoyed this 2 hour lesson. This instructor puts a strong emphasis on foundation. Rather than just reciting words and sentences for memorization, plan to work hard on the root of the language. You won't have to think as hard in conversation. ...
