My name is Xiaojing L. (Alice). I am a Chinese language teacher for international students.

I have worked for 5 years in Sinoland College in Beijing from September 2005 to May 2010. I also worked for Inlingua School of Languages from May to August in 2012.

I am honest, enthusiastic and hard-working.

My method:
Target language only
Learn through speaking
Exemplify rather than explain (Like: drawing pictures, body languages)
Get the students doing the speaking
Correct the pronunciation and grammar
Check before teach new language

Each session consists of four steps:
Step 1: New vocabulary and grammatical points are introduced in context;
Step 2: New items are practised through questions and answers
Step 3: Drills and substitutions
Step 4: Oral presentations

Works very well with children — Alice comes very prepared, is always on time and is great with my two boys 8 and 6 years old. My sons cannot wait for their lessons with Alice. She is very professional and responsive. She pays special attention to ensure they are pronouncing the words correctly. I researched other tutors and Alice impressed me the most from the first lesson with my kids. ...
