350 hours of Mandarin lessons with six students have been delivered through face-to-face and Zoom teaching since 2019. Mandarin is my first language and I have a passion to teach Mandarin. On the other hand, I have finished my TEFL certificate  (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) at Seneca College of Canada. I am loving to teach English as well. Welcome to join in the first-hour free trial lesson through Zoom meeting.

Professional Experience

I have been teaching my students to establish confidence to learn Mandarin through the differences and similarities of Chinese and English. I am good at connecting Mandarin with English. For example, I teach my students to learn the number of three "三" sounds "san" and think " sandwich" as it has three layers. I have encouraged my students to practice more to acquire a sensitive tongue movement. Mandarin is a tone language and many students will experience difficulties with tone. I have a strategy to establish their tone ability to sound like native speakers. Secondly, I have taught my students to learn Mandarin characters through roots. Third, I have taught my students to develop language four skills in an integrative way. Listening, speaking, reading and writing have always been integrated and authentically used in our life. Meanwhile, I have encouraged my students to study Mandarin through a large variety of online resources as Mandarin is a very rich language. Sefl-learning habit is very important for students to learn anything. I truly hope my students can build up a life-long self-learning habit through learning Mandarin with me too. 

My students are enjoying my teaching.

Teaching Approach

Motivation is very important; individual attention is a key for tutoring; reading aloud practices flexibility and adaptability;  encouraging students is always good for learning.

Availability

I am flexible and easy to adapt to the student's schedules. I am sorry I am not available on Sunday because I am loving to worship Jesus, my Lord, on Sunday.
