Hello. My name is Michelle. I recently spent 1.5 years in Mainland China working to improve my Chinese, previously spending about 4 years studying the language. Since then I have taken a week long TESOL course teaching me how to be an effective teacher. Taking a step back from nose-in-the-book traditional teaching methods and getting my students to interact more, even for my shy students. The nice thing about private tutoring is that we can find material and methods that make you feel comfortable, not an entire classroom.

I can teach you the basics: Mandarin tones, PinYin, several conversations, vocabulary building. Lets get started! I look forward to hearing from you.
