My teaching philosophy is that my students can acquire a new language during efficient, continuous and happy learning process. Hence, I adopt multiple teaching pedagogies and design teaching materials basing on their own study situation.
I offer lessons to different levels (from beginner to advanced level). I'm patient, easy-going and I'm sure you'll have a good time with me:)

My name is Ying and I am currently offering Mandarin lessons in Edinburgh! Regardless of your purposes behind learning Mandarin (preparing for HSK exams, academic exchange, travelling, doing business or you are simply interested in Chinese culture), I'll lead you to a fun journey.
My educational background and qualifications:
• I received my bachelor’s degree in Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other
Language in China. In 2014, I got the Certificate of Level 1-B in National
Proficiency Test of Mandarin. In 2016, I passed the written examination of
International Chinese Language Teachers Qualification Certificate which is held
by Hanban (Confucius Institute Headquarters).
• In 2017, I graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a master’s degree of
• I have been a private Mandarin teacher since 2014. My students cover different
age groups (from 3 years old to over the age of 50) and they come from
different fields, including education, business, law and finance.
• From September, 2016 to November, 2017, I worked in Edinburgh Chinese
School as a Chinese teacher.
• 02/2018-08/2018 I worked in Warsaw Chinese Institute as a full-time Mandarin teacher.
Now, I'm still teaching as a private Mandarin tutor;)
Perfect! Anita is an absolutely excellent teacher. From the beginning, she was very quick to adapt to my Chinese language level and prepare lessons which suited me and my interests. She has always made sure to engage me with material that is both challenging and interesting. Thanks to her tutoring I am much more comfortable and confident speaking Chinese. I am able to express myself at a higher level and discuss far more advanced topics than I ever thought possible. I would not be at the Chinese language level I am today without her. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their Chinese!
Perfect! Ying has been an absolutely outstanding tutor of Mandarin for our four children. She is reliable, keeps the lessons interesting, has a good manner and the boys all enjoy their time with her.

Ying is an excellent tutor, very friendly and supportive to her students. She currently teaches our 15 year old daughter Mandarin and our daughter not only looks forward to her lessons but is clearly learning a lot in a structured but fun way.
I highly recommend Ying to anyone looking for an enthusiastic and capable tutor who keeps her students interested and encouraged whilst pushing them along in their studies. Ying is very good at revisiting past lesson subjects regularly to make sure they are not forgotten whilst introducing new vocabulary and topics every lesson to make sure students progress at a good pace whilst retaining everything they have learned already.
Anita is a great teacher- highly passionate about the subject that she teaches, very patient, and puts a lot of effort in constantly improving the teaching quality.
I have not encountered any of her students that did not like her class. All of them, from young kids to adults, progressed very steadily and stayed with her for a very long time.
I cannot recommend Anita more for those who are looking for a responsible and capable teaching on this subject! Seriously, consider giving Anita a try!
I received mandarin lessons from Ying for a few months now. She is extremely professional and nurturing. Her lessons are always interactive and engaging. You can tell she prepares teaching material well in advance to make sure you get the most out of a lesson. Whether you are just starting to learn Mandarin or have proficiency already, her unique teaching style can help you gain confidence and consolidate your knowledge. I would highly recommend her.
