I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker who has been living in the states for about 30 years. When my kids were young, they attended Chinese School in Stamford where I also taught children to speak and write Chinese for about a year. When I wasn't teaching, I was always helping my children with their Chinese homework and with continuing and implementing their lessons at home. In working with my children I became familiar with teaching materials for Chinese and have had a lot of practice with teaching Chinese. I've learned that practice is the best way to learn to speak Chinese and having a personal tutor is the best way to facilitate that. The one on one interaction allows me to give you my full attention and we can work at a pace that is best for you to help you learn Chinese. As a native Chinese speaker I have an excellent ear for tonal pronunciation, one of the hardest things about learning the Chinese language. Having this ear helps me help you learn to speak Chinese like a native.
I believe that for kids it is important for them to learn early. They can pick it up quickly and develop the ear for it from a young age. If you are an adult and would like to learn to speak and write, one on one tutoring is the fastest and best way to learn. I have spent the last 30 years working in an office environment and have excellent organizational and communication skills which is very helpful in teaching Chinese. Bilingual skills are a definite asset in today's world and can open the door for many opportunities. Let me help you learn Chinese.
I am available on weekends.
