Hi, everyone! Welcome to WyzAnt! I am a Chinese Mandarin Tutor here and very happy to help you with your Chinese learning. If you have any questions concerning Chinese learning, please feel free to post your questions and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I live in western suburb of Chicago and if you need help face to face, find me here at WyzAnt! My first tip for you to learn Chinese is: Set a solid foundation of the 4 tones first, then move on to whatever. If you can not grasp the 4 tones (there is also a light tone besides these major 4 tones)of Chinese pronunciation, you cannot learn Chinese well.
I attended the Oral Proficiency Interview of Chinese Mandarin on May 6, 2013. The certificate was issued on May 9, 2013 by ACTFL - American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. I have successfully completed the ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) and have been rated according to the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines 2012 -- Speaking Superior. I am on my way to attending M.A.T program at National Louis University, planning to get the Teaching Certificate teaching Chinese Mandarin.

Chinese or American, kids all behave very similarly in their curiosity and enthusiasm to learn something that they are interested in. So as a teacher, when I helped the kids in languages or other subjects, all I need is just smile and encouragement all the time. Smile can help the kids to have a very comfortable atmosphere to learn with you and encouragement is very essential to help kids build up their confidence in learning anything. Once you handle these two pieces of treasure in teaching very well, you will gain a magnetic connection with the kids and make them like you and enjoy learning with you. Of course, at the same time you can... read more
Hi, Everyone~ My name is Yin D. and I come from Shenyang, China. I graduated from Liaoning University in 2002, majoring in English.

I have not got the teaching certificate yet, but I plan to get it as soon as possible. I used to have my teaching certificate in China. My mandarin is top level and I speak fluent English. I have abundant teaching experiences and have a very good reputation among all my students and their parents. I am looking forward to helping you with your Chinese.
