I’m Lisa. I graduated from Teachers College in China majored in Chinese linguistics. Chinese is my native language. I had taught Chinese in middle schools with Chinese Teacher Certification for 7 years in China. Since I moved to America, I have continued to engage in teaching Chinese Mandarin for 20 years, and have taught students from kindergarten to adulthood.

I enjoy the teaching process. When I have worked for Chinese program in Catholic school board, I utilize pedagogical skills such as GPA (The Growing Participator Approach) to convey and teach basic pronunciation and tonal inflections of Mandarin Chinese & its verbalization along with reading & writing skills. For tutoring students, I typically make an individual learning plan based on the student’s interests, level, and personality. I encourage my students to develop their self-learning skills. I love this job. I tutor with caring and extreme patience which allows for continuous student feedback, making connections from prior learning, so that, they will become competent readers, and independent learners in Chinese mandarin language. I have natural rapport with all students I engage in the educational learning process. After my tutoring, my students can speak and read Chinese by themselves. I have a sense of accomplishment when my students get my help and make progress in language arts.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!

Lisa did an excellent job of assessing my needs and coming up with a plan for my allotted time. I liked her teaching style and I am excited to start on her lesson plan.

Very patient and knowledgeable teacher

Teacher G. is very patient with her student. She always can help students to pay attention to her teaching. She is very knowledge and explain the class well. She explains the class with very easy ways for students to understand.

Very Thorough Instruction

Lisa did a great job of incorporating both dialogue and the four tones. Dialogue is so important because that is what helps students learn in context. I know this because I am a language teacher myself. I learned Spanish as a second language, too. Mandarin will be my third language so having a teacher that understands the importance of connecting tones and dialogue is wonderful! Lisa was also patient, friendly, and rigorous. I feel confident that I will learn a lot from her!

Excellent Tutor

We feel so fortunate to have found Lisa. She is a patient and reliable Chinese tutor. My son has benefited a lot from just a few sessions. He learned concepts from Lisa that were not even taught to him in school. My son will definitely have an edge in Chinese because of Lisa.

Patient and thorough Chinese tutor

Heavily focus on pronunciation with a proper understanding tones and patterns. Customize and tailor the lessons to suit my son. Wonderful so far. Thanks, Lisa!

Edward, 11 lessons with Lisa

Very nice and flexible.

Lisa really worked with our complicated schedule. We've only had 1 session so far but everything is great! She was on time and taught our son some Mandarin words and songs.

Excellent tutor for beginning student

I had no prior knowledge of Mandarin. Lisa started first lesson with some basic words and phrases for everyday use. Very patient and personable teacher. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.
