 A really useful first lesson for our child. Sophia got our child comfortable quickly (it was the first time doing a lesson using Skype) and adapted her teaching style to ensure the whole lesson was valuable. Many thanks.

About me - English

Hello, I am an experienced teacher in China and I love my job as a teacher. I have been teaching English in a middle school for about 19 years.

I like languages and that is why I am good at teaching .I have been an online Chinese tutor since 2007.The students really enjoy having lessons with me. I focus on their needs and get each lesson well prepared . That is why most of them can keep on learning with me for more than one year and take regular lessons.

I am using the skype extra tutoring tool---talkandwrite for lessons which is very effective for tutoring languages, especially Chinese .You may have a look at its features at

With talkandwrite I also give group lessons up to 9 students. It's also very effective.

Feel free to contact me for a free trial lesson.I hope I can help you learn Chinese Mandarin as well.

Qualifications & Experience

I have a bachelor's degree in English and have been an English teacher for more than 17 years so I am experienced at teaching languages.

I have been teaching Chinese mandarin online formore than two years. And I am studying Chinese hard in the recent years because I really want to teach better and better and help the students make progress fast.

Teaching Approach

My main teaching approach is to help the students use the language more . Practice makes perfect. I will help them develop the abilities of listening, speaking, reading and writing, especially the speaking skills.

I have a very good software--the skype extra tutoring tool--talkandwrite which allows the stutents to share a whiteboard with me as if we are in the same classroom. With this teaching board, we can work on the same file. And it also allows me to teach you how to write the magic Chinese characters.

Anyhow I will try my best to make the lessons interesting so that you can enjoy learning the language. I will also use flash to help you better understand the language.
