About Irene

Dear Mandarin Chinese and/or Japanese learners,

Congratulations on setting yourself the remarkable goal of learning Chinese or Japanese! As a native English speaker myself, learning Chinese and Japanese has been among the most rewarding and worthwhile endeavors of my life.

I lived in China and Japan for a total of 20 years, teaching myself the languages while teaching English. This experience has given me the skills to be a very effective foreign language tutor. Whether you wish to focus on speaking and listening or reading and writing, or any combination of these four skills, I offer a class specific to meeting your goals. In addition to the four language skills, I also teach the culturally appropriate use of language so that when you are face-to-face with a native speaker, you will avoid faux pas.

I look forward to helping you attain your language learning goals!

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.

I lived in northeast China for three years. I have a Master's Degree in Chinese, with a focus on Pedagogy (Chinese Language Teaching Methods).

I am certified in many states to teach Chinese in public schools.

I have 20 years' teaching experience in China and Japan. In China I taught all levels at the university level, from beginners to majors. In Japan I taught all levels and ages in a language teaching school. I have a Master's degree in foreign language teaching methods. I love teaching (and learning) language. I am especially good at helping you improve your pronunciation.
