Hi, I’m Richard Chen! I am passionate about language teaching and learning. I’m open-minded and I love learning about different cultures and traveling to different parts of the world.

I believe that the best way to learn a language is to use it as much as possible. So I make my teaching interactive! In my class, you’ll start talking soon, and I hope you’ll enjoy the different tasks and activities I design for you. I believe that a good language class should be 80% student talking time and only about 20% teacher lecturing time, so you’ll learn the most if you speak up. Believe me, it works best! But don’t worry, I’ll help you along the way.

Let’s start with a trial lesson to get to know each other! I’ll use this session to learn about your current level, your needs and goals, and what you expect from my lessons. Before we begin, you might like to think about which skills you’re most interested in practicing — speaking, listening, reading, or writing (whether with a pen or a keyboard). Mandarin Chinese can be written with either simplified or traditional characters, and I’ll explain all about that if you’re not familiar. You can also send me a message with any questions. Just set an appointment and we can start right away!
