"Gets better every lesson."
Frank, 11 lessons with Li Feng
Hi! My Chinese name is Li-Feng. You can call me Phoenix. I am a native Mandarin (Chinese) speaker from Taiwan. In 1988, I graduated from Ming Chuan College and my major was International Trade. I worked in the international trade business for more than 10 years when I was in Taiwan. In 1999, I received my B.A.degree in Applied English, from the first American-accredited University in Asia, Ming Chuan University, in Taiwan.
I have four years of experience tutoring young kids and adults in Taiwan. Since 2012,I have also been tutoring Americans. Besides Mandarin (Chinese) tutoring, I also love drawing. I am a professional pastel artist, and offer tutoring in Art. I am the author and illustrator of many children's stories in World Journal Chinese Newspaper. I am also the author and illustrator of a children's book. My pastels are uniquely realistic, using bright colors to catch the viewer's eye, from landscape and floral, to domestic pets. My work has been exhibited in many local juried art shows successfully.
I'm friendly and patient. If you don't understand something, I can simplify it until you get it. I can teach the classes (Applied Chinese, Business Chinese and Pastel Art) in-person in Renton Washington within 20 miles.
Thanks in advance for considering me!

Gets better every lesson.

Great Tutor! Friendly and Patient!
Li-Feng (Phoenix) is a great, fun tutor. She is very friendly, organized, and easy to communicate with. I take lessons with her over Skype. This is great solution for me because it was very hard to find a tutor in the area at an affordable price and good availability. I, personally, do not feel that the quality of the lesson diminishes because it is conducted over Skype. All you need is a good camera and a fast enough internet connection! The lessons are structured around textbooks which makes them easy to follow and also study on your own. I enjoy my lessons with Phoenix and I feel like I am learning a lot at a pace that is right for me.Dmitri, 148 lessons with Li Feng
Teaches At A Pace Students Can Understand
Li is very patient and teaches the Mandarin language at a pace that a student will understand as they proceed through each lesson. Her lesson plans accompanied by CDs are great. She is responsive to emails as needed.Gus, 5 lessons with Li Feng
Patient and Enthusiastic
I am a beginner, and I have had only two Skype lessons with Li-Feng. She got me started quickly by sending me links to textbook pages before we met for the first lesson. I plan to take more lessons due to her patience, enthusiasm, and willingness to answer my questions about Chinese culture as well as language. During the first lesson she seemed a bit nervous and preferred to give explanations rather than push me to repeat the Chinese phrases. Both characteristics were improved already in the second lesson.Bobby, 4 lessons with Li Feng
Wonderful teacher! She relates English (my first language) to Chinese (the language I am learning), which makes learning the lessons very easy to understand and connect how we speak English to learning and speaking Chinese. I am excelling very quickly with Phoenix (Li-Feng) teaching me.Kirsten, 40 lessons with Li Feng
Enthusiastic and Encouraging Tutor
I travel for work and can't always meet in person with a tutor, but I've studied Chinese for several years and didn't want to lose my proficiency. I was glad to have the opportunity to meet with Phoenix (Li-Feng) over Skype. She's very accommodating to different schedules. It's clear that Phoenix is an excellent resource for new students. She is both patient and encouraging and excited to share Chinese culture with her students.Katie, 3 lessons with Li Feng
Wonderful tutor for Mandarin!
We moved back to the US from Asia this past summer and really wanted our daughter to keep up her Mandarin. We struggled to find a tutor with a flexible schedule and someone in our neighborhood. We searched on WyzAnt and found Li-Feng. My daughter (14) has really enjoyed working with her and the fact that they can do their lessons via SKYPE means we don't have to worry about commuting back and forth! I highly recommend Li-Feng.Sarah, 65 lessons with Li Feng
Zeroed in on the lessons specific to my goal.
Li-Feng was sympathetic and willing to flex with the time it took to prepare for 3 papers and review for my college Mandarin final. All of this was critical to commencement -- just three weeks away!Taylor, 3 lessons with Li Feng
I was hesitant at first about learning through Skype but it is like anything else you just have to be consistent and diligent. Skype is effective and so is Li-Feng. We are learning at an acceptable pace.Christopher, 7 lessons with Li Feng
