« After spending so much time on Duolingo learning French, I was about to give up, but a friend of mine recommended me Jia. With nothing to lose, I took the proposition and booked lessons with her. A month has passed and my French has improved at a staggering rate. Jia explains very well. She is able to simplify all the concepts so I could easily understand them. I would definitely recommend her, she is way better than those self-learning apps. »

McGill undergraduate student offering mandarin lessons to improve your listening Chinese and conversational skills.

Methodology

My teaching methods will be different depending on the level of the student, their age, and the time they are willing to dedicate to learn Chinese. I can teach from basics (pinyin, pronunciation, greetings, self-introduction, etc.) to more advanced concepts such as Chinese geography, idioms, poetry, etc. I'm also an avid movie and drama lover, thus we can also do analyses and relate concepts to in real life situations. I know how hard it can be to learn a new language, but as long as you persevere and do a little everyday, you could 聚沙成塔,厚积薄发!(Literal meaning: Gather specks of sand little by little and one day form a tower, Metaphorical meaning: As long as you put work into it everyday, even if you don't see results right away, one day you will see the fruits of your hard work. ) Jia you!

Background

Hi! I'm a undergraduate student currently studying Psychology at McGill University. Mandarin is my native language, but I am proficient in French and English as well. I've been doing tutoring for a few years now, both remotely and in person; I have experience in teaching kids as well as newly-immigrated adults who need language lessons to adapt to their new home. I also recently did a mandarin course at Peking University that deepened my knowledge about Chinese culture, the Chinese language and socio-economic factors in China. I would love to help you with your conversational skills, pronunciation, or any other type of concerns that you might have on your journey to learn Mandarin.

After spending so much time on Duolingo learning French, I was about to give up, but a friend of mine recommended me Jia. With nothing to lose, I took the proposition and booked lessons with her. A month has passed and my French has improved at a staggering rate. Jia explains very well. She is able to simplify all the concepts so I could easily understand them. I would definitely recommend her, she is way better than those self-learning apps.

After getting tips from Jia, she helped develop my English vocabulary to a point where I can have a comfortable conversation with others. She made me feel confident and was always patient. I used to have a fear of not having the right pronunciation, but she helped me overcome this fear! Overall, I recommend booking a session with Jia ! :)

Not only does she make up for an incredible tutor, but she is also a kindhearted individual who will create a safe and comfortable environment for her students to work in. I wholeheartedly recommend Jia to anyone who is in search of a great tutor!
