About Weixia


Bio

Hello (pinyin: "nin hao") !

I'm Waysha (pinyin: "Weixia"), your Mandarin tutor/trainer. My education and teaching career stretches from China, to England, and of course to America. I have a Master's Degree in Applied Linguistics/TESOL from Leeds University and that's where my slight British accent comes from. Since that time I have spoken Mandarin, Cantonese, and Hakanese (3 out of many Chinese dialects) since I was a little girl.

Many of my students' parents recognize how important...

Hello (pinyin: "nin hao") !

I'm Waysha (pinyin: "Weixia"), your Mandarin tutor/trainer. My education and teaching career stretches from China, to England, and of course to America. I have a Master's Degree in Applied Linguistics/TESOL from Leeds University and that's where my slight British accent comes from. Since that time I have spoken Mandarin, Cantonese, and Hakanese (3 out of many Chinese dialects) since I was a little girl.

Many of my students' parents recognize how important it is to have their children learn Mandarin and also to gain a basic understanding of Chinese culture. Mandarin is the official language of China and Taiwan. It is by far the most popular Chinese dialect world-wide, so that is the one that I teach here in San Diego County.

How can I describe my students? Some of my young students know three or four different languages. A few are in middle or high school and need a helping hand there. Adults that I tutor usually find themselves doing business in China, or wanting to, and others are traveling to Asia as writers and vacationers. Whatever your objectives, know that learning a new language is good for you; it keeps your mind alert and cognitive functions in a growth mode. Add cultural exposure, as I do in my lessons, and the adventure never stops!

Learning Mandarin is good for all the above reasons but has special promise in its economic potential, especially to our children, as China and other Asian countries continue to develop economic, academic and sometimes even romantic relationships with the West. That's what my husband did!

Friendly and very knowledgeable

Weixia is excellent. She knows how to lay a foundation quickly, and how to build on that for quick comprehension. Her lesson strategies are well thought out and have brought me from clueless to becoming proficient!

Good Tutor, Patient but Firm

I have been trying to learn to speak Mandarin for 25+ years, and can already speak it at a basic level. I started working with Weixia about six months ago to get my speaking up to a more adult level. For several reasons including my somewhat limited group of Chinese speaking friends and the normal responsibilities of adult life, I felt that practicing on my own (watching Chinese movies at home, going to local restaurants and talking with servers I know, recording from Internet radio, etc.) wasn't working, and that I'd gotten "stuck". Well, working with Weixia has helped me get "unstuck". I'm improving. And I can see it. On trips to the Bay Area and Shenzhen in the last several months, Chinese friends who I've not seen for several years commented to me that my Chinese had improved. That was good to hear. A good part of this progress I attribute to working with Weixia. She knows how to get me to repeat saying certain things that still need mental reinforcement. And she knows how to paraphrase a complex passage I might bring in to something a little more simply worded but easier for the listener to understand and the speaker not to confuse. Weixia and I have taken a Summer break for a few months. I look forward to working with her again this Fall.

Great tutor for my young boys

We hired Weixia for summer lessons so we were in and out of town a lot. She was extremely flexible and effective in getting them to remember what they'd learned. She exhibited very good communication and punctuality; she was very good with my boys who are ages 6 and 8. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
