Teaching Chinese is my life-long dream. In my mind, the ultimate charm of teaching Mandarin is to introduce China and Chinese language to people from different nations, and of various cultures and language backgrounds. Moreover, to help such people master and use Mandarin is also one of the most important responsibilities of being a Mandarin teacher. All students I have met are coming from every corner of the world whose ages, occupations and the purposes of learning differ. Therefore, I tailor each course accordingly with appropriate methods to help them reach the goals they expect. My strength lays in daily conversation related courses. Also, I possess rich experiences in helping students who are totally new to Mandarin study. My greatest happiness and proud is to witness my students using Mandarin to communicate with local people after they studied for a few period of time.

Comments from students: "Shirley is very good teacher. She can easily adapt teaching speed and level to the level of the student. She is very patient, regularly repeats material from previous lessons. She balances amount of grammar with new vocabulary in proper way. Her English is also on very good level which helps to discuss and understand even sophisticated subjects in Chinese. I strongly recommend her as Chinese teacher."

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.
