Chinese

I am a formally trained and certified Chinese language teacher with over 21 years practical teaching and tutoring experience. I received a Teacher’s certificate in 1985 from Suining Teacher’s School (Sichuan Province, China), and taught Mandarin Chinese for 8 years at Gaosheng Elementary School in Suining, China. During this time, I continued my studies and received a diploma in Chinese Language and Literature from Sichuan University in Chengdu, China (1990). In 1993 I moved to Guangxi Province to teach at Minle Road Elementary School, which is recognized as the top elementary school in the capital city of Nanning. I taught at Minle elementary for 13 years, until I immigrated to the U.S. in 2006. In addition to teaching in the classroom, I tutored students at home for several years, either one-on-one or in small groups in Mandarin and written Chinese. I received multiple awards from the Chinese government in recognition of my excellent teaching skills. I can tailor my lessons based on the age, background and interest of the student. Whether you want to gain basic conversational skills, improve grammar and pronunciation, or learn to read and write in Chinese, I can provide excellent and interesting instruction. For students that want to learn to write in Chinese, I recommend computer-based character entry, as this reduces the amount of memorization and practice, which speeds up the learning process. For students that want to learn the art form of Chinese characters, I can teach you basic calligraphy skills, with traditional ink brush methods.

Thank you very much for your feedback. I enjoy to do lesson with you, a very smart student. You studied many Chinese knowledge by yourself. So you can talk many things in the first lesson. I look forward to doing other lesson with you.

Patient, Kind & Fun

I had my first lesson and brushed up on some words I knew previously and learned some new words and sentences for communication during an introduction. I am excited to practice and for my next lesson!

Patient but challenges student

Lie was great in helping our daughter get caught up after missing school. She is a great resource. Even after my daughters work was complete she had her read it aloud to practice her oral skills as well.

Rebecca, 2 lessons with Li

Knowledgeable and patient

She first assessed my skill level then we started working on comprehension, conversational skills, and writing. It was very fun and the lesson was structured well! I am excited to be learning Chinese with her.

Lesson 4

I am extremely pleased with the progress that I have made while working with Li. What I imagined would be an impossible language to learn has turned into a hobby because of Li’s knowledge and enthusiasm during every single lesson. If you are looking to learn chinese at any level (I started with zero knowledge) you are making a mistake if you don’t study with Li. She is very patient and will repeat any and all information until you are comfortable. I started tutoring once a week and It has turned into several times a week because of how helpful she is. Great tutor!
Li is a super nice woman and adjusts content and speed based on your needs. She is very patient, but will continue to challenge you and push you to learn more. I am very excited for my next lesson.

Great teacher

My son is in 8th Grade was struggling in Mandari. All the other students in his grade have had 1 year of instruction and our family just moved to the state. Each lesson with Li helps him understand, write and speak with more confidence. He looks forward to learning more.

Robin, 34 lessons with Li

Excellent Immersion

Li went right into the lesson from the beginning, starting with pronunciation and tones, and I was able to keep up with little difficulty. I learned some basic vocabulary, numbers to 100, sentence structure, and even started basic writing skills with stroke names and order. Her pace was perfect for me, and I can't wait until my next lesson!

Robert, 6 lessons with Li
