Experienced Mandarin Teaching, has taught both in China and the UK, currently residing in Nottingham but offers online lessons.

Methodology

Step-by-step teaching of Pinyin and Characters, broken down and explained through stories and histories of Chinese culture.

Hand-in-hand language practice through tasks, games and daily conversations.

The BENEFITS of one on one learning with an experienced Mandarin tutor of foreigners:

- Learning to read, write and speak by a systematic step by step approach, learning everyday texts and conversations that are designed to connect to you, and teach you the most useful and commonly used verbs, nouns and expressions.

- Covering important grammar rules and clearing up common mistakes, confusions and important differences between Chinese and other languages.

- Have fun reading and reciting rich Chinese cultural stories in Mandarin, helping you to become a better Mandarin speaker - a fun and exciting way to learn!

Background

I am a first-class participant at the University of Nottingham and have been teaching both English and Mandarin as a dedicated job for the past 3 years.

Having grown up in China and lived in the UK for 10 years, I have confidence in providing you the best of my experiences in both worlds.

If you want a professional and engaging teacher who have brilliant English skills and can teach you the pure native spoken Chinese Mandarin then I'm the one to contact!

I manage and teach student-led Mandarin lessons at the University and have taught for over 5 weeks at Harvard Children's English training center in Mainland China during the summer. Through these experiences, I have received professional training and gained invaluable teaching knowledge. I have designed language assessments that are now being officially used in the Mainland China Harvard center and I am directly responsible for the Mandarin specification used in the University's student-led Mandarin lessons. I am professional, creative and responsible in my teaching. Something I enjoy more than anything else is providing personalized lessons and learning materials that will develop their understanding as hope-to-be Mandarin speakers and really help with the learning process for my students - if properly followed with lots of practice!

Perfect! I was studying Mandarin at university and I had problems with speaking and listening. Le helped me to improve in these aspects. Later, for my speaking exam,​ I received high grades and positive feedback from my university teacher. Thank you!

Le's response

It has been a pleasure to teach Nadia. She is enthusiastic and motivated, have great pronunciation (if she can just remember those PinYins!) and with some work, is definitely on her way to grasping conversational Mandarin.

Keep at it!
