Chinese is my native language. I have been in Canada for 17 years. I have no problem to communicate with you in English I can teach different level of Chinese. I can use both Chinese and English to teach according to your understanding ability. I use textbook, multimedia, app, game. I can talk to you everyday via phone or internet after regular lesson.
I will start with listening and speaking, to make you familiar with the tone of this language and then will move on to reading and writing. I will find video clips on YouTube with both English and Mandarin subtitles, which can help you correlate the sound with the words.
I have rich training and experience in student-centered learning, task-based instruction, and curriculum development. I have taught for both lower and higher levels of Chinese courses.
My teaching methodology is helping students learn the real official mandarin. Most of the Chinese people can speak Mandarin, but only a few of them know what is the most right and elegant way to speak and write it. I will tell my student the history and logic of the Chinese language to help them become a real native speaker.
- I prefer to interact as much as possible with the students - I tell real fascinating stories about China today - I understand very well the western mentality and apply it in the lesson - Well educated in China, I have authentic pronunciation
My teaching method is always to begin with things people are interested, familiar and easily get practice. The basic function of the language is to communicate while the deeper purpose is to open your mind to a whole new culture which may end up enlightening you in the future.

Learning with me must be as fun as it can be. My goal through teaching is to make sure to understand my student needs and create the teaching method that suits his needs. Every student has a different way of resolving, of comprehension and of practicing. What should a great private tutor bring to his student is confidence, skills and achievement in any form. Languages are a communication tool.
Based on my own language learning experience, I'd like to help learners find their interest, which will give them a good start of a better understanding of a new language. This will always keep them motivated in learning the language, which is super important. After they get familiar with related words and expressions, I will introduce them more difficult and relevant things to learn.
My teaching methods aim that student can feel familiar with some common daily expressions by introducing many vivid situations. I have several foreign friends who are enthusiastic to Chinese culture, so I will sometimes introduce a lot to them and give them some tips about learning this language.
I usually let the person I'm helping with to choose the part of the subject that most interests him/her, and I will start right there just to establish a feeling of fun, not fear against the subject. (Studying is always hard, but we can still get a bit fun from it!) I can be really flexible with the content of tutoring, and I can prepare a unique curriculum for each person if they want.

For students beginning their study of Mandarin learning, I'll provide essential background culture information, dealing with language learning and teaching in a clear and comprehensible way. The classes open for both children and adults who love Chinese culture and prefer to learn Chinese in an interesting way.
Face to face is key: you read my facial expression so you do not need to guess. Communication skills can only be improved if you talk to me and try to share stories with each other. Relax and enjoy: come and have a cup of tea and start with your interests. We can only focus on one part: nobody can do everything in a short term. we need a target area based on your strength.
My teaching is focus on practical application of knowledge. I usually first presents new concepts and theories to students and then encourage them to apply the knowledge into practice. For example, in my past coding class, I demonstrated how to code in front of class and then assign a task to let them solve.
I approach a subject with the structure of a square which contains four sides are listening-reading-drawing- imaging. Listening and reading base on Chinese phonetic alphabet. Drawing and imaging get from Chinese traditional pictographs like oracle bone script and so on.
I prefer giving individual attention to my students. Because to have another language is to possess a second soul. Students are empty vessels whos knowledge is filled with correct information provided by there teacher. learning a new language is an asset for the individual.
I teach simplified and traditional Chinese if you need to travel to HK, Taiwan and Singapore for working or travelling. Plus, all the material and handouts are tailored to the needs and aspirations of the individual with the main aim of rendering the subject accessible.
Firstly, I would like to know the aim or goal of the student. Then, I will make a customized learning plan for every student.
My methodology includes games, and challenges that would entice students learning and activate their long term memory. A typical class would start with a game warm up, then a new topic with a lot of visual aid.
I like to use different interesting ways to teach, like drawing, graphing and watching videos. I will give the student a specific scenario, let him/her imagine and describe what is happening. Pictures are very helpful, I will use pictures to let the student express what he/she sees and then I'll know the student's language level and thus give him/her different methods to improve.
I pay a strong attention on classroom interaction. I would like to use more games and activities to guide and discover students' interest in learning Chinese. In order to grab students and have an easier way to learn, the choose of the materials are all from daily life.
I always believe that learning comes from life. We need build the language environment. I will use the cards with pictures and words to make you easily remember the pronunciations and meanings of the words. After you learn the certain amount of words, the simple sentences are not difficult any more. The different person has different personality.
My teaching contents are various based on the language level of students. For people who just starts to learn, I will focus more on grammar. And for those who have learned Chinese, I prefer to teach my class with different topics each time.
I am especially interested in learning languages. I grew up in a bilingual family and I have the gift to distinguish the minor difference between different languages. It proves that by noticing the differences help non-native speakers pronounce much better! The most funny thing I found is that, Cantonese has nine different tones while Mandarin has five.
My methods for teaching Chinese is: Encouraging my students to get more practice in communication and writing, make the Chinese learning fun and effective.
I can help to learn Chinese, how to pronounce, how to write, how to chat with people in appropriate way. I can also help people to pass the Chinese language course exam, if anything related to Chinese is needed, I am here to help.
The vital element in learning Chinese int he very beginning, I have learned, is the sound system, that is, one has got to get it right, before moving on to what comes next. Without a doubt, one of the hardest things about a sound system is that there may be many sounds one does not know how to make....
Basically is just like “operant conditioning”. Give rewards when students did well, give punishment when students are irresponsible, for example, not doing homework. Of course, I will ask students’ parent premission first. If parents do not want any punishments, I will not punish students.
