If you are going to or doing business with Chinese:
I have experience of teaching groups of senior business people in the office. I have been giving great feedback. For example, "I have gained lots of confidence to speak Chinese when I travel to China for business. Liwen is a really encouraging tutor and I have made great progress in a short space of time."
I also have one-to-one lessons with students who are doing business with Chinese or travelling to China frequently.
Currently I am helping some of my students to pass HSK Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (Chinese proficiency test). I have students have passed HSK2 and are preparing for higher levels exams.
If you are planning to travel to China for a holiday:
Few of my students learned Chinese before they went to China for holiday. They were very satisfied after my lessons. "Liwen is professional, organised, and patient. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who would like to learn or improve their Chinese. "
If you are parents and wanted your children to learn Chinese:
I have students between 3-10 years old. They really enjoy my lessons. As a mum myself, I understand the need of children.
I am also teaching in the secondary school. There are many enthusiastic students in the class.
I have both Cantonese and Mandarin adult students.
I am very warm, patient, understanding and a great listener.
I have invested in my teaching materials and have some great stuff to help you learn.
I am flexible and can offer lessons on subject matters of interest to the student.
I have taught students who have very different reasons for wanting to learn Mandarin or Cantonese. Some because they have Chinese relations, some because they have a general interest in China. In all cases I have been able to meet my student's needs and they have been very satisfied with what my lessons.

I have gained lots of confidence to speak Chinese when I travel to China for business. Liwen is a really encouraging tutor and I have made great progress in a short space of time. I am quite surprised how much leaning Chinese has helped with my business. Thanks Liwen Laoshi!
Liwen, has been a great teacher. I enjoyed my fortnightly lessons with her over the last six months... Each session usually had a theme. I would prepare for the theme usually by studying every day before the lesson. I was then able to talk about the theme during the session.
Liwen is professional, organised, and patient. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who would like to learn or improve their Chinese.
My grand daughter Sarah is having Mandarin lessons with Liwen. She enjoys her Mandarin lessons and shows improvement. Liwen is a patient and friendly teacher. She works well with children. She goes out of her way to help us beyond the duty of a tutor.
