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.
