Hi! I'm a 10th grade student from Canada. I hope to help others by sharing what I know! I like learning new languages, reading manga, and doing competitive math. My dream school is MIT. I teach Mandarin, ESL, SAT R&W, SAT Math, and Pre-algebra. Feel free to come and chat with me or request a session anytime!

Upcoming Sessions

Mandarin: The "How", Not "What"

    8th session

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!

Ariel is amazing! She's not only fluent in Mandarin but deeply understands the language's intricacies. The format of her teaching encourages students to learn and retain lots of information. I knew virtually nothing about Chinese characters before her session. Now, I have learned to recognize and notice patterns among characters!

Thank you as always for the session, I love the structure of the classes and how you write down key words so we can also improve our literacy. I think I've said this before but I really appreciate this series as a way for me to practice my Mandarin more often.

This session went over the very fascinating topic of Chinese Poetry, where we reviewed one of the works of the famous Chinese poet, Lǐ Bái. Ariel was pretty amazing herself and definitely knew how to keep the class fun and exciting. At the end we wrote a poem together, and thanks to her help, we finished with a pretty neat literary work. Please keep in mind that I'm a beginner, so all credit goes to her for this "masterpiece" (I Hope 🙏). Highly recommend her sessions to every aspiring poet, or really just anyone who wants to learn!

Thank you for the session! You had a lot of good explanations and the class was really fun. I appreciated that you let us come up with sentences as practice. Can't wait for the next session 🥳
