About Marianne

Anyone who needs to travel to a foreign country for business or pleasure would desire to learn the language used in that country. I had that experience prior to my trips to Japan and Ecuador. It really helped me to be more comfortable before I ventured into an environment where people speak a different language. That's why I had a basic language book, and I had a tutor. Now I can help as a tutor! I am a native speaker of Cantonese-Chinese, and I can master Mandarin-Chinese. I can read and write Chinese well. My background was a clinical social worker in Hong Kong, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Therefore, I am used to working with people from diverse age groups and backgrounds. My husband's family, a Caucasian missionary family, is also very international, including Hispanics and Filipinos.

Since my first child was born, I have been raising four children and teaching them at home. Now my oldest just graduated from college with summa cum laude. At her graduation she had thanked me for her foundation in reading, writing and other study skills. As a home educator for over 18 years, I have experience in teaching multiple subjects and in choosing teaching materials. It is my passion to use my experience to help students of elementary to high school in their school work.

I have successfully home-schooled and graduated three students from high school. I have recently completed college accounting classes with excellent grades.

I am a native speaker of Cantonese-Chinese. I also master Mandarin-Chinese. I have experience in teaching how to read and write Chinese.


I have led numerous women Bible studies. I had also been in Bible Study Fellowship for 7 years to finish the comprehensive study of the Bible.


I am open to help children and adults to study Chinese, or help prepare anyone prior to a trip to Chinese-speaking countries. I can meet at a local coffee shop.
