About

This series is designed for learners with ANY level of Mandarin skills, from 0 to almost fluent. Why is that? Because instead of teaching you vocab, grammar rules, and pronunciation tips, I’ll be telling you the best ways to learn Mandarin so you can figure those out yourself.


This series is best when combined with a systematic/traditional course on Mandarin (you can find those on YouTube, or even if you’re taking one in school), but it’s completely fine if you just want to listen to me talk.


There will be weekly lessons and bi-weekly office hours. In the lessons, we’ll be going over each of the different methods. In the office hours I’ll be helping you out with whatever you bring. It could be your Mandarin homework, a passage you don’t understand fully, or a grammar rule you’re confused about. If you wish, you could also just chat with me in Mandarin to improve your pronunciation or comprehension skills!


If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or message me. I look forward to meeting everyone!

Tutor Qualifications

I studied in China for 3 years and I am fluent in speaking, reading, writing, and comprehending. I also speak Mandarin at home.

✋ ATTENDANCE POLICY

Please do not have 2 or more unexcused absences for the lessons. However, you don't need to come to office hours if you don't want to.
