About Qimei

I was born and raised on the border between Khazahstan and China. I went to Khazah 1-11 school, learned mainly Khazah and Mandarin as my second language, but we always spoke and read in Chinese at home those years. At the age of 16, I took a 72 hour train from my hometown to College in Beijing where I passed the highest level of HSK (The Hànyu Shuipíng Kaoshì, translated as Chinese Proficiency Test or Chinese Standard Exam) and received my bachelor degree in Russian language and literature.

While I was in College, I spent many hours tutoring international students from all over the world in Mandarin for almost 3 years. I started learning English after I came to the states from the end of 2001, from different ESL programs and listening to radio while I could. Then I become an ESL teacher volunteering once a week (2hours) for 2 years, helping people from other cultures to be able to live a normal life here in the US with better English. I've been through pretty much what you're going through now, which makes me different from other native Chinese speakers.

I am a native speaker who went through HSK preparation myself and I'm married to a native Chinese man.

I've studied 4 different languages in my life, some of them are really difficult such as Russian, Khazah and Chinese, of course. No matter which level are you in, we will together reach the point where you want to be. It's not you, it's the language and culture behind it, and how much that can be attractive to you. I'm the one who'll make you to love and want it as much as I do.

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

I am a native Chinese person who speaks, writes and reads Chinese very well. I passed the highest level of the HSK (Chinese Standard Exam) in 1996. I have tutored Chinese to many international students during my college years (1996-2000) in Beijing.

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

Qimei is a very supportive and helpful tutor. My daughter needed support for both conversation and reading. Qimei is very knowledgeable about formal Chinese and uses that expertise effectively. She is a lovely person and engages very well with my daughter.
