About Yan

Hi, I am a native Chinese Mandarin speaker, born and raised in Beijing, received public education through college before came to the United State for advanced studies.

I enjoyed teaching Chinese (Mandarin) at the Center for International Studies at Cornell University while attending the College of Engineering and pursuing my bachelor's and master's degrees. I taught students from across the US and the world who wanted to improve their Chinese speaking and writing skills. Many of them stayed on the program for multiple semesters until graduation.

What I experienced was that the best performing students was the ones dare to express and correct mistakes; which means one needs to seize every opportunity to practice the language.

I've traveled throughout Europe, Asia and North America, and I have been living in the United States for the past 30 years.

Regardless of your level or your needs, I'm looking forward to teaching children or adults my native language, Pin Yin, Chinese business writing, conversational skills, and also to share the culture from China.

Learning on-line I initially thought daunting, but with Yan's tracing style I feel as if I'm in a classroom...there's a syllabus, explanation and history of the Chinese language. Enjoyable.
