Nihao. I am a native Mandarin speaker who graduated with MS degree in Eastern Michigan University. I have vast experience of teaching Mandarin across all levels and ages, and have been teaching Mandarin for many years at prestigious Language Institutes, and also at a private school in Detroit. I also taught ESL class for 2 years after receiving training in "teaching methods and techniques for teaching ESL". I am currently a high school Mandarin Chinese teacher. My expertise extends from beginning through advanced levels. In my class, materials will be designed according to the students' background and needs. I feel fulfilled after spending numerous hours preparing for each and every creative teaching session and then see my students excited and benefited. I come across as a very pleasant and friendly teacher, who has a great passion for teaching my native language.

Sharp and creative Mandarin tutor

So much about tutoring is adjusting to the student, and Diane T is amazing. She takes into account the previous and concurrent practice I am doing with audio lessons. And she does extra preparing additional practice recordings for me to use between lessons. Great value.

Diane T. Review: 5 Star

Diane T. is a sensational tutor for several reasons. As a new student learning the Mandarin language, Diane was very thoughtful and meticulous in her lesson planning, teaching structure, and review. Diane was always well prepared with lesson plans that set a solid foundation for the future. She was also very flexible in her meeting times, understanding when conflicts occurred, and as professional as you’ll find. Polite and respectful are two of the words that come to mind immediately when describing Diane’s character. One of my favorite parts about Diane’s lessons were her teachings around the Chinese culture. She always found a way to tie our current topics to the real world which served me well as I was always curious as to how our lesson linked to the “Big Picture.” Above all, Diane’s greatest traits are her understanding and ability to keep patience with her student(s). While frequently my pronunciation was unclear and incorrect, or my ability to remember vocabulary words was deficient, Diane ALWAYS remained positive and enthusiastic. I highly recommend any students, young or old, to work with Diane as I hope to sometime again in the future.
