As a devoted, creative, artistic and dynamic teacher, I have formed my own effective way of teaching Chinese to Americans without putting them under too much stress. After receiving an initial training in Pin-yin and Chinese character writing, my students can easily speak, sing, write, and perform using their Mandarin Chinese skills. The best moments for me are always when my students tell their friends or parents that learning Chinese from "Liu Lao-shi" (TEACHER LIU) is fun and easy! I greatly enjoy my students and am proud of the fun they have through my teaching and of the achievements they experience in a successful learning environment. I have a long list of students who can provide you with their references.
As one of the most experienced, creative, nurturing and classy Mandarin teachers in this City(you may check me out soon), I'm confident about what I offer my students and don't like to bargain when it comes to the fee I deserve; I would never bargain when it comes to the quality of my teaching or my commitment to the student's success in learning authentic Mandarin with great joy and pleasure. And I'd like to put everything up front, so then you see a clear picture before you finally decide to call me. Xie xie!
Only if you are genuinely interested in learning beautiful Mandarin from me, please contact Liu Lao-shi(TEACHER Liu) to talk further your intended individual lessons and your preferred schedule. Xie xie(THANK) ni(YOU) and I hope you'll have an enjoyable and successful learning of Chinese!
Scammers, jerks and sex-seekers please leave me alone as any of your dirty purposes would never get a response from me. I am here seeking serious and motivated students ONLY to share my culture with.
I have been attending Liu Laoshi’s Chinese class for about 1.5 year. The thing that I like most is that she really focuses on quality Chinese! She is really committed to correcting your tones and pin-yin pronunciation. I find the group classes helpful in that you can learn from your classmates as well!
