About Mike

I am a fun, patient tutor, and tailor my classes for each individual student and their needs. I have lived in Taiwan for 5 years where I've taught ESL to students of all ages, and mastered the Chinese language through immersion and intensive Mandarin classes at some of Taiwan's most prestigious language schools, including NTNU and Chinese Culture University. I've been a student of Mandarin myself, and understand which learning methods are most efficient and effective, and can logically explain how to overcome many of the most difficult challenges of the Chinese language.

Unlike other tutors who are native Mandarin speakers, I am intimately familiar with the process of learning and mastering Mandarin as an English speaker, from most basic to advanced. During my last year in Taiwan I also had experience working for a big Taiwanese corporation as a secretary to the CEO, where all meetings, correspondence, and communication was entirely in Mandarin.

My methods are fun, interesting, and guaranteed to improve your language skills. As an added bonus, I always provide my students with a syllabus that outlines my plan for helping them learn Mandarin as quickly and effectively as possible.
