About Jia

Hi there,

I'm an English speaking tutor who happened to be born in Beijing. I moved here when I was 17 years old. I love to help client's learn my language and believe it will truly benefit their future as the Asian population continues to grow.

We'll start with an introductory lesson so we can get to know each other. I want to learn about you and understand why you want to learn Chinese and if you are seeking just a couple lessons or if you want to become a long-term client.

I've taught many training classes in language and in food safety in both English and Chinese. Here is the breakdown of my goals for teaching you Chinese (Mandarin)

Build a bright future by learning one of the fasted growing languages.

Learn to speak Chinese, not just memorize sentences.

Understand what you hear and respond easily and naturally.

Receive personal attention and education.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Chinese

Growing up, I spent a lot of time actively immersed in multiple languages, mostly English and Chinese. As a Bejing native, Chinese (Mandarin) came naturally to me, and I slowly increased my English competency through extensive class time and practice.

I moved from Bejing to the United States when I was 17 and attended Michigan State University. I tutored numerous Math students while attending. I was fortunate to receive my B.S. and M.P.H. and eventually start a career in food safety. As part of my career, I conducted dozens of food safety courses in English and Chinese.

I continue to speak and write Chinese every day and look forward to helping my clients learn these valuable language skills. I start my tutoring sessions with a short meeting to access the client's current skills and needs. From there, I start teaching them Chinese basics which typically begins with Pronunciation and speaking the Chinese language.
