Hello, I was born and raised in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, North China. I studied at Liaoning University and got my Bachelor's Degree in Chinese language there. Since then I had the opportunity to travel around Asian countries as a travel leader. I enjoyed interacting, share, and teaching Chinese to both adults and kids.
Now personally speaking, I found learning Chinese by speaking the language is the best way to improve your language skill. Reading and learning vocabulary is important as well, but you will actually remember better by constantly hearing and speaking the words you don't know. Usually I like to start my tutoring with a half hour just talking to you, to know your conversational skill level and I will plan the courses to fit and grow your skill to a new level. If you have no experience at all, that's ok too :) I taught many people without any Chinese Mandarin background.
PS: Do you know that most tv news presenter mostly come from China? It's because we speaks the most standard and clearest Chinese. And I'm a bit strict teacher myself. I want my students to succeed and past the barrier the students have.
Have a good day.
