About Chen

I'm a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese and I'm fluent in both English and Spanish. Although I am often considered gifted in languages, I know through personal experience that mastering a foreign language requires nothing but hard work and the right learning method. Through my experience tutoring Chinese learners both in Beijing, China and the US, I have formed a fun, interactive, and effective teaching style. I personally find learning foreign languages enjoyable and I believe I can create an interesting and rewarding learning experience for you too.

A graduate from China's top university with a master's degree from Case Western Reserve University, I am educated on issues with regard to Chinese and American culture, society, business, and politics. No matter where your interest in China lies, I can tailor-design a personal learning experience for you. I look forward to embarking upon a linguistic and cultural exploration with you.

I'm willing to travel farther than 5 miles for work, but transportation expenses may increase my hourly rate.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.


I am a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese. I grew up in Beijing, China. I just moved to the States with my American husband. I went to Peking University in Beijing, China, which is constantly ranked the No.1 university in China and top No. 50 in the world. I was the vice president of the International Students' Communication Association in College. One of our principle functions is to design Chinese tutoring programs for international students at Peking University. I worked as the program leader and a Chinese tutor myself for 3 years in college, designing Chinese teaching curriculum for learners of all levels. I taught Chinese lessons to students from the States, Mexico, Cuba, France, Norway, Spain and Canada. Some were starters while some were more advanced learners. I always managed to tailor-make individual lessons according to each student's proficiency level and personal interest. I got very good reviews from my students and I still stay friends with most of my students. I enjoy teaching Chinese very much and it is a very fulfilling and rewarding job for me. I also have 2 years of part-time experience in teaching Spanish to a larger group of students (10- 20) in classroom settings, which also helped me hone my teaching skills.

Fantastic Teacher — Chen served as my chinese tutor for several months, and was incredibly helpful with getting me jumpstarted on Chinese. She had good knowledge of books and other useful resources I could use to improve myself, and in-depth knowledge with Chinese culture and vernacular. In lessons she was very patient and was willing to answer all the crazy random questions I had for her. She puts a (much deserved) ...
