I enjoy teaching Mandarin Chinese because it is simply fun and rewarding to see my students learn and progress.
I am a believer in developing an integrated approach to teaching Mandarin Chinese where speaking and listening skills come before reading and writing. I will be able to help you recognize different tones of "pinyin", build frequently-used Mandarin vocabulary and make conversations in different scenarios. In addition, I strongly believe in the importance of interaction and communication between the teacher and the student in promoting a better learning experience.
My most recent experience is to become a Mandarin language trainer with a language training service company where I was assigned to local students to provide customized Mandarin lessons based on their level of proficiency. I designed my own lesson plans and presented them in a progressive way. The lessons started with learning "pinyin", the fundamentals to speaking Mandarin, and extended to different topics, to include some but not limited to: Asking for directions, date and time, numbers and prices, shopping, food, health related terms, and babysitting. I recorded audio files to accompany each of the lessons for my student. While my goal is to cover as much content as possible, the lessons were also highly customized, meeting the individual's learning needs and interests.
I am looking forward to helping you learn Mandarin Chinese, whether it is for business trips, intellectual purpose or any other reason.
