I am a native standard Mandarin (Pu Tong Hua) speaker and have lived in the US for almost 20 years. I have hands-on experiences teaching Mandarin Chinese as a Second Language and have a CE issued by the New Jersey Department of Education for teaching Mandarin Chinese. I received the highest rating, Superior, on my Mandarin oral proficiency test from the LTI (Language Testing International). Having received Masters degrees in both China and the United States, as well as being a mother, I am able to tutor all levels of students who want to learn Mandarin. My lessons are customized for each student based on their needs, abilities, levels and interests. I am constantly examining and exploring different strategies to teach Chinese, placing particular emphasis on teaching to know how, when, and why to say what to whom during the lesson.
In addition to teaching the language, I also introduce Chinese culture, including things such as customs, etiquette, rules of behavior, tradition, history, and other interesting topics. These are equally important to understanding Chinese as a second language. Given these qualification and my passion for the subject, I will be an excellent tutor to whoever wants to learn.
