Hi! My name is Ivy and I am a Mandarin native speaker. While I was in college, I was the tutor for school's Mandarin classes for 4 years. I have been working with many students who have different goals with their Mandarin studies. My approach for tutoring is firstly to create a relaxing studying environment and build up your interests in learning Mandarin, I will try to fully understand your needs, such as speaking, writing, etc., and your goals. Then I will propose a schedule with specific contents for each class and use it as a guideline.
I personally have various international backgrounds; I am originally from China and studying and working in U.S. for many years; I have spent a long time in London and Amsterdam as well. Therefore, I have met and seen many Mandarin learners. I am able to introduce the culture, the food, the people, and various elements, beyond the language itself. I am a strong believer that understanding the culture first is the fast and efficient way to learn a new language.
Let’s study Mandarin and explore the culture together!
