About me

Hello, my name is Helen. 26 years old. Live in Beijing. I have been teaching Chinese as second language in an online Chinese school for 2 years. I like languages and enjoy teaching and learning process in the class.

My students are from many different places, such as the USA, Britain, the Middle East, Sweden, and Hong Kong. They aged from 5 to 56 years old and most of them have studied with me for more than one year. I feel very happy to see their progress in Chinese.

One of my students said I was born to be a teacher. I do not know if that is true, but I really love my job.

Qualifications & Experience

I majored in Teaching Chinese as Second Language in University. And graduated with Bachelor's degree.

Teaching Approach

In class, I lead students to do as much practice as possible, and make the grammer items and rules easy to be understood. When students meet with a quesion, I give them clues to find the answer by themselves, rather than give the answer directly. And I often plan games for the class to make the learning process more fun. And I will change my teahing ways according to different types of students.

I felt that Helen tailored the lesson to meet my level and goals in my quest to learn Mandarin Chinese. I think she is an excellent teacher because she explains the lesson and answers questions very thoroughly. She is also very patient with students.
