About Siwen


Bio

I have more than three years experience tutoring children and adults in Mandarin for both everyday and business purposes. I previously worked as a Mandarin tutor in Shanghai, including as a teacher at Shanghai University, where I accrued over 500 hours of teaching experience. I taught students from more than ten countries with a variety of goals, including developing their conversational abilities, reading and writing skills, and passing the HSK exam (China's official test of Mandarin...

I have more than three years experience tutoring children and adults in Mandarin for both everyday and business purposes. I previously worked as a Mandarin tutor in Shanghai, including as a teacher at Shanghai University, where I accrued over 500 hours of teaching experience. I taught students from more than ten countries with a variety of goals, including developing their conversational abilities, reading and writing skills, and passing the HSK exam (China's official test of Mandarin proficiency). Many of my students have gone on to pass that exam at the level required to work for Chinese companies in China .

I have a passion for teaching and helping my students achieve their particular goals using a variety of engaging pedagogical tools and media. I love tutoring because I love working face-to-face with people from a variety of backgrounds. I am always patient and approachable with my students because it makes for effective teaching and because I'm happy and grateful to be able to work with people.

In addition to being a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese, my Mandarin level was certified as being at the level needed for Chinese teachers in China (as many Chinese people are not proficient speakers of standard Mandarin, University students are required to take a Mandarin proficiency test). My bachelor's degree is in Chinese language and literature, and I was certified in teaching Mandarin as a foreign language in 2010.

I would be thrilled to work with you to help you meet your goals. Please feel free to contact me!

Excellent so far

Siwen is verify helpful and patient with my kid. For now she's assisting with my kid homework and all is great. Although my kid is playful she takes her time to get her settle in and on track. Will post more info as time goes. Excellent so far!

Great Tutor!

For a first lesson I was really impressed with Siwen 老師. I studied previously in Taiwan and have a book I really like. Without typically teaching from this book she was able to help identify my level and lead an excellent lesson. I am excited to continue learning with Siwen 老師!

Helpful Chinese Lesson

Wonderful teacher. Very helpful and patient. Brought printed resources with her to share. Very pleasant and punctual. Will recommend to anyone looking to start or brush up on their Chinese.

Angie, 6 lessons with Siwen

Great tutor

I'm enjoying my lessons with Siwen very much. She pushes my communication abilities while also taking time to review vocabulary and grammar, to make sure that lessons have been thoroughly learned. No rushing through material, which I greatly appreciate, and lessons are a good mix of reading, listening, and free conversation.

Encouraging, patient and friendly tutor

It is hard to "judge" a tutor proficiency when they speak to your child in a 2nd language, but I am able to visually see that my child and the tutor work well together. Also, Siwen is very patient and readily indicates, yes, these materials are useful. Please bring to each session. And, no, you don't need to bring these. It makes me much more comfortable with the process because she is able to tell me what she needs. I am excited to see my daughter's confidence improve as she improves due to tutoring with Siwen.

Great Tutor

Siwen, is a great tutor. She is reviewing our daughter's Chinese spelling and comprehension. Our daughter is very engaged and is enjoying her lessons.

First lesson went great !

I went to her to learn a Chinese Pop song. With her instruction, and with the notes I took, I am confident I will be able to sing the song soon.

Kind and patient tutor

My daughter finished her 2nd visit with Siwen and feels quite comfortable with her. My daughter has enjoyed her tutoring and is motivated to practice her lessons throughout the week. Siwen is professional, punctual, and comes prepared with lessons for each week. We would highly recommend Siwen as a Mandarin Chinese tutor.
