Mandarin Tutor for age 5+ to GCSE, HSK 1-4 level and people in business

Hello, nǐhǎo,
Nice to meet you here.
I am a Beijing born Chinese, graduated from Peking University, have lived and worked in the UK for more than 20 years.
I teach Mandarin in my spare time and at a Sunday school. In recent years, I work as a TA in a college, and set up my own business in teaching mandarin and cultural exchange. My students are from children age 5+ to GCSE, HSK 1-4 level and people in business. I feel very proud and happy to have helped my students pass GCSE and HSK tests, and achieve their goals in life.

Teaching approach:
I’m a very patient and adaptable person, always have a smile on my face. I understand the cultural differences, difficulties and setbacks of learning a 2nd language.
In my lessons, I teach using a variety of multimedia such as Youtube, animations or video and discuss a range of interesting topics, focused on teaching the most useful words and expressions in real life situations, sharing opinions with you in a relaxed conversation.
I interact with my students, encouraging them to talk and practice all the time helping them to improve their pronunciation and use of phrases.
I customise the lessons according to individual interests and needs, happy to use different textbooks upon your request. Before the lessons start, you can contact me to allow me to know your level in Chinese and requirements.
As the Chinese saying goes: A journey of a thousand miles begins a single step. Let’s get started.

Marina
Chinese Mandarin,10 years of experience,full time, patient,1-on-1 and group interesting classes, HSK, Daily Chinese, etc, 3 years to adultsE
I am a professional full-time Chinese Mandarin teacher from the North of China where Mandarin comes from. I have been teaching for about 10 years as a teacher. I have my own school and website for studying Chinese. Students' ages are from 3 to adults. They are from all over the world. You can study with me online /come to my office/ Go-home lessons. Classes can be one-to-one or group classes. I have been helping numerous people learn to speak Chinese and do exam HSK. Children always have fun learning Mandarin with me. I teach Mandarin for business purposes, traveling, YCT (for Children and teenagers), BCT (business Chinese), Conversational practice, Advanced level Chinese classes, etc. Any levels are all welcome. Classes type: Daily Chinese HSK class: Level 1--Level 6 HSKK class: HSK speaking test (Beginner to advanced) Chinese grammar class BCT / Startup Business in China: Business Chinese (Beginner to Advanced) YCT class: Level 1--Level 6 for children to teenagers Easy steps to Chinese: 3-12 years old children There are some other classes that welcome to messages me. I grew up and had educations in China. I moved to Europe for teaching Chinese in 2019 November. I am fun, active, very patient, and responsible. I have never come late to all of my classes for more than 10 years. For children's classes, I prepare songs, videos, cartoons, teaching and explaining at the same time, They learn really fast and never feel bored when they are excited with a fun teacher and materials.

Xingying
Learn Chinese from A1 to C2, from having fun to prepare test
I run private lessons, where all levels are welcome. But if you’re a total beginner then I offer basic classes to help you find the way to get into it. I develop diverse methods of teaching for the students. For the around 5-8 years old kids, I would like to set certain games to play with them, thereby the kids can learn the new language during the interaction and communication. In this way, different media, like color pictures, puppets, or storybooks are essential to make the course very attractive. For the teenager or advanced students, a structuralized teaching content based on scenarios or textbook could help the students to develop their language capacity efficiently in different aspects – listening, reading, speaking, and writing. Besides, I would like to give a deeper perspective for the Chinese- not only learning the language from the textbooks, but also the knowledge of the language, the culture, and the literature. Also, based on your need and situation, we choose different textbooks and make a personal teaching plan for you.

Cecilia
Chinese at Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced levels
Embarking on the journey of learning Chinese opens up a world rich in history, culture, and modern opportunities. Mastering this language not only allows you to access the thoughts and writings of over a billion people across the globe but also provides a competitive edge in the increasingly interconnected global job market. Starting with the basics, learners will master Pinyin (the Romanization system for Chinese characters), essential grammar, and an extensive vocabulary that will serve as the building blocks for fluency. Progressing through the course, students will hone their skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, enabling them to engage confidently in conversations, comprehend authentic texts, and express themselves with clarity and precision. Being a native speaker, along with over four years of experience teaching Chinese across a spectrum of learners—from primary school students to adults—I am adept at tailoring my teaching methods to suit diverse learning styles and objectives.

Gwendolyn
Chinese (mandarin) lessons for adults and kids of all levels
I have been giving chinese lessons for more than 10 years. Before that, I was a radio broadcaster and a journalist in China, hence I have a perfect pronunciation of the official mandarin, without any accent. It provides my students the best conditions to learn chinese, as the tone you give to words when you speak chinese as a foreigner is of great importance if you want to be understood by natives. I have a strong working experience helping students preparing their HSK exam, I also often teach diplomats, to help them acquire the necessary skills and understand properly the vocabulary specific to their job. I also love to work with kids, as I was a mandarin teacher for 2 years in an international school in Singapore. I give them a playful learning environment and use fun learning methods, so even the youngest can stay focused!
