Hello! My name is Xianhong (Hong). I was born and raised in Mainland China. Naturally, I am fluent in Chinese. More than that though, I am educated in child development and have many years' experience as a teacher in both foreign and domestic schools. I received my Bachelor's in teaching from a university in Ningbo, China (near Shanghai). After that, I spent two years teaching both Mandarin and English at an international kindergarten in Ningbo. It was a joy to teach children from all countries, from American, to Australian, to Korean, and Chinese. I came to America over two years ago. Since then, I have taught Mandarin at a language school, a public charter school, and a Montessori daycare. I have had a lot of success private tutoring, and I am looking to make that my full time job. I hope I get the pleasure of teaching your child Mandarin!
I love teaching, and I love children. Under 8 years old is my specialty, but I have students of all ages (one of my students is in college). My lessons involve artwork, music, singing, and are all-around interactive experiences. I try to make my lessons as fun as possible. I believe children learn best when they are engaged in learning, not when they are being asked to repeat words out of a book. If your child loves being creative, he or she will love my lessons . . . and become fluent in Mandarin!
