I am a PhD and a native Chinese speaker who has a proven talent for Chinese language, literature, history and culture since childhood. I got 100% score for my literature writing part of Chinese in the university matriculation examination and 83% overall. I got "Perfect" for Chinese History in my high school graduation examination, and I have read many books about Chinese history. My pronunciation is clear and allowed me to be a campus news reader in China for 7 years. I have been trained in one of the most famous Mandarin schools in Shanghai, and have got my International Registered Professional Certificate of Qualification for 4 years, as well as my Chinese ranking examination certificate. I believe that everybody can grasp Chinese Mandarin--it's not as difficult as you think--all you need to do is to hold your interests in it, and I will do the rest.

Tutoring Approach

About Electrics,Physics and Maths, I will teach everything from the root and explain thoroughly by using the easiest way. They are my educationally professional areas so just let it speak for itself.
I'd like to speak more about Mandarin:
It is believed that the most difficult part for non-mandarin speakers to learn Mandarin is the very beginning, and fortunately that's what I'm especially good at. Every class you will learn something that you can use to communicate with Chinese people immediately.
With me you will learn the standard pronunciation which is significant because a slightly different pronunciation can lead to misunderstanding, and that is the most common trouble with non-mandarin speakers.
The best way to learn a language is to repeat and correct. In my classes, the learning is like a circle--everything will go over and over again to recall your memory and eventually you can say something out without thinking. You will be asked to make a role-play to push you to use the sentence you've learned.
Apart from the phonetic system, I will show you the Chinese characters to make you familiar with them and teach you how to write them gradually. Eventually you will find that you can read and write some Chinese!
The grammar is not a burden. It is a useful tool to help you understand and use the language. In my class, grammar is straightforward and easy to follow.
Is that everything? No! The most unique benefit for my students from my Mandarin classes is that you can learn Chinese culture, as well as the interesting history. Everything is like an attractive story to give you a better understanding, and finally you will find that you have fallen in love with this country!
