Dear Chinese learners,
I'm Sammie, a native Mandarin speaker, and have been teaching Chinese for 4 years.
Whether you need help with speaking, listening, reading comprehension, or writing, I can help enhance these critical skills which are necessary to build confidence in using the language. My students represent a wide range of ages, professions, and proficiency levels, and learning styles.
In Beijing, I was a journalist and reported on the 2008 Olympics Games. The following year, I moved to Washington where I received my Master's at the George Washington University.
I am currently a Chinese instructor at a government agency. In addition, I have experience with preparing individuals for the HSK -Chinese language proficiency test, the SAT Chinese exams, the State Department Language Proficiency Test- to meet desired listening and reading scores. I also assist my current students studying for the placement and proficiency tests of their respective university programs in the DC area.
I highly value a student-oriented teaching philosophy. My class is personalized based on your needs and language level. I'm good at designing different class activities to help you to understand and use the language in various situations. My students find my class fun and engaging.
I am open to traveling to the student's residence or a mutually agreed to location.
I have been teaching Mandarin Chinese at the Global Language Network (GLN) to a class of 20 people in Washington D.C. since 2010. I have taught students of different levels, from beginner to advanced. At the same time, I have tutored students from George Washington University and Georgetown University, helping them better prepare for school Chinese classes.
I teach Pinying system and simplified Chinese characters in the classes. I customize classes for each student while using text books as a reference. Besides teaching language, I also combine Chinese culture when it is appropriate to help student better understand the language. I am very patient, detailed and attentive.
About myself: I am a native Chinese from Beijing. I just finished my master degree in George Washington University. Back when I was in college, I passed the test and got the certificate for standard modern Chinese. I am very good at communication. Before coming to the America, I used to be a journalist for People's Daily which is one of the most prestigious news paper in China. I reported the 2008 Olympics during that period of time.
Outstanding teaching ability! — I would recommend Sammie to anyone. She is very patient and tailors the lesson to an individual's preferred style of learning. Sammie is also very accommodating and focuses on areas that are of interest to the student. I will definitely continue lessons with her. ...
