About Hongzhi


Bio

My name is Jane and I was born and raised in Chengdu, China. While I was in China, I obtained my Bachelor of Electrical Engineering degree from the Chengdu University of Electronic Science and Technology. I moved to the US in my 20s and have been here ever since. In 2003, I received my Master in Accounting degree from the University of Tennessee. I used to work in an accounting company, managed various businesses, and currently run my own small private businesses.

My name is Jane and I was born and raised in Chengdu, China. While I was in China, I obtained my Bachelor of Electrical Engineering degree from the Chengdu University of Electronic Science and Technology. I moved to the US in my 20s and have been here ever since. In 2003, I received my Master in Accounting degree from the University of Tennessee. I used to work in an accounting company, managed various businesses, and currently run my own small private businesses.

My hobbies include traveling and writing. I am a prolific writer who has published many articles in various Chinese magazines and newspapers. For example, I have written and published various pieces in a notable and renowned Chinese newspaper called “The World Journal”, also known as, “Shijieyubao”.

I am an experienced Chinese teacher. Professionally, at a local Chinese church, I used to teach elementary school children how to read, write, and speak Mandarin for fifteen years. As a mother, I have taught my two daughters how to speak Mandarin since birth and consequently raised two fluently bilingual children. One of them now has a minor in Chinese and the other is pursuing the minor as well.

I am a passionate and fun person and so my teaching method reflects that. I believe that the best way to learn is to let you really fall in love with the language and Chinese culture that comes with it. I can help you review your Chinese homework, help you prep for tests, and offer professional Chinese writing critiques. My goal is to help my students vastly improve their reading, writing, and listening skills in order to be as fluent as a native speaker.

I am also an active member of the Chinese Writers Community. I can offer lots of different opportunities to my student to not only learn the Chinese language, but to also develop a deeper understanding of Chinese traditions and cultures.

I am a native Chinese speaker and have taught Mandarin Chinese for over 15 years. I am an accomplished published author with many works in numerous Chinese magazines and newspapers.

I will work hard to successfully help my students accomplish their Chinese dreams! I look forward to hearing from you, to being your friend, and to becoming part of your success.

She was very patient

I am possibly the slowest reader and have the worst memory so when I have to make my own sentences I take a very long time, however she is willing to stick with me a repeat sentences a lot which really helps!

Katie, 9 lessons with Hongzhi

Patient tutor and very good with kids.

Hongzhi has been working with my 7 yr old daughter for the past few months and it's been great. She' very encouraging and patient, and helped my daughter to really understand and learn the correct pronunciation and reading/writing skills.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Hongzhi provided a structured preplanned lesson for my daughter. She made excellent use of being on line and I was very impressed with how engaged my daughter was throughout the lesson.

Kiah, 4 lessons with Hongzhi

Great first lesson

Hongzhi is going to be tutoring my two sons in Mandarin Chinese. The first lesson went great. They have studied a little Chinese on their own, and she was able to figure out where they are as far as pronunciation, etc. She went over the numbers 1-10 and then 100 and 1000, and she asked them translate random numbers from English to Chinese and then Chinese to English. She was very warm and enthusiastic, and I think the boys will learn a lot from her. Thank you for the good lesson!

Very patient

My pronunciation isn’t the best but she continued to correct me and she never got irritated or annoyed. You can tell she enjoys teaching and I’m excited to continue my lessons.

Audra, 3 lessons with Hongzhi

Knowledgeable and patient tutor...makes learning fun for the kids.

Hongzhi makes the exercises fun so the kids stay engaged. Enjoying the experience is half the battle and my children look forward to lessons. Her patience with my children, especially the 5 year old, and ability to communicate the lesson create a positive experience.

Patient and Encouraging!

Hongzhi is, so far, an amazing teacher. I love all aspects of foreign language, and she has been able to further my passion by introducing me to many new things! She is encouraging and has provided me with a sense that I can and will learn mandarin! I hope to become fluent one day and she has been the first step of my journey.

Effective

I really like Hongzhi's teaching style. It’s very similar to what I am previously used to from my college courses. Definitely it works! My Mandarin is slowly improving with only two sessions.

Kayla , 9 lessons with Hongzhi

Very satisfied

Been few months with Hongzhi L. and I progressed so much compare to my previous tutor. Her lesson plan for me focused on conversation and speaking, which is still my weakness but got better and better every week. I'll continue my learning Chinese with her.
