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!
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 ! :)
Jia is a dedicated, hardworking person who will ensure the job is done right. She will make sure to bring out her student's fullest potential through meticulously crafted lessons. 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!
I have had the pleasure of having Jia as my Chinese tutor for the last few months and I often find myself feeling grateful for the time, care, and attention she invests into each of our sessions. On top of her dedication and clear explanations, I found that her endless patience and contagious enthusiasm make her a phenomenal tutor that I would recommend to anyone!
Not only is Jia a very qualified teacher, she also has exceptional work ethics that are truly inspiring! I definitely recommend her as she is patient, flexible and incredibly hard working.
Jia was an amazing mandarin teacher. Very professional, attentive and patient. I found the classes very easy to follow and I noticed immediate results. Highly recommended tutor!
Since I started taking lessons with Jia, I have visibly improved my oral conversation abilities. My university mandarin classes are now a piece of cake! Highly recommend her.
She is really nice and knows how to teach. She knows how to adapt to each student's needs. I highly recommend her.
As a beginner I knew almost nothing and with her help and patience I can quickly see improvements. Cannot recommend her enough.
A few lessons with Jia and my accent has already improved so much! A really accommodating tutor who teaches very well and adjusts to your own learning pace. I've learned so much from her!
