About me

I am from Canton China, currently living in USA. I can speak Cantonese and Mandarin as my mother language. I can also speak English and Japanese fluently. Before I became a Chinese tutor, I worked at a Japanese company and taught Japanese to Chinese as my part time. But after I moved to USA, I realize that I enjoy teaching my mother language Chinese to people more than Japanese. Why?

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart. --Nelson Mandela.

I totally agree with this and I think this is the main reason why I really want to teach Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese) to people around the world, so that people could have better communication with Chinese people and enjoy the culture better.

Teaching Approach

My Lessons & Teaching Style

I prefer teaching beginners (A1-B1). So if your level is B2 or higher, please find another tutor, my lesson is not suitable for you. Right now I just offer informal tutoring.

1. free conversation. you can talk whatever you like, I will follow you and

A. Help you with your pronunciation

B'.Correct your grammar if it's needed.

C. Enlarge your vocabularies and make you sound more natural.

2. More structural lesson

A. Just give me a topic, or a word lists you want to learn to ahead of the class, I can prepare some material just for you.

B. If you feel more comfortable learning from a textbook, we can learn from a Chinese textbook.

C. Anything can be used as material, like videos, songs, posts and some manga, let me know what you are interested at.

D. For younger learners, we can also learn from some English Picture books.

About me

我姓李,你可以叫我李老师。你也可以叫我的英文名字 Yan。

我在中国的广东省出生长大,现在我和我的家人住在美国中部的一个小小的城市里。

有一个女儿和一个儿子。我的女儿今年3岁,儿子6个月大。所以大部分的时间 我都在家里照顾小孩。

但是我在线上教学也有一段时间了,断断续续两年多了。

一开始我教授日语,后来觉得教授自己的母语中文(普通话和广东话)更有意思,所以我现在只教中文。

语言是打开对方心灵的钥匙。如果你用对方的第二语言跟他交流,你说的话只能到达对方的耳朵,如果你用对方的母语跟他交流,你说的话会达到对方的心里。

希望越来越多的外国人能说中文,能更好地跟中国人交流,能更好地了解中国文化。

Qualifications & Experience

实体语言培训机构---1年

在线培训:3年多

Teaching Approach

我主要给初学者提供非正式的中文课程。

包括自由会话和以课本为中心的课程。

自由会话:基本上是全中文授课,如果有不懂的地方,可以用英语或者日语进行解释。

这里的自由会话课分为两种一种是以老师为主导的。也就是说单词 语法点都是由老师先设计好,然后引导学生去说。另外一种自由会话 是真正的自由会话。学生可选择自己喜欢的话题跟老师进行讨论。然后老师会纠正学生的发音 语法错误 引导学生使用新的语法和单词。

以课本为中心:如果你比较喜欢按照课本学习,我们也可以选择一些适合你的教材进行学习。
