Professional Experienced Licensed Teacher – Native Chinese Tutor

As a native Chinese-speaking teacher with a Bachelor Degree in Chinese Language and Literature and a Master Degree in World Literary Theory, I have nearly ten years worth of experience teaching the Chinese language arts.

Jim S. from Chevy Chase, MD I was very impressed with Yuan's preparation, lesson plan and teaching style. She makes the learning process fun and interesting by using idioms to illustrate the meanings of words. As a writer, I thought this was a very clever way to learn a new language. Yuan is an experienced teacher who has clearly mastered the craft of being able to teach her students/clients Chinese. I highly recommend Yuan for anyone who is serious about learning Chinese.

Betty L. from Washington, DC I was looking for a tutor to help me maintain my Mandarin. I already have a strong grasp of basic Mandarin but I needed someone to talk to and help me practice speaking more fluently. Additionally, I needed assistance in my reading and writing at a more challenging level. Yuan was very patient with me and took her time as I struggled through reading Chinese news articles. One article would take me half an hour to read! However, Yuan never yelled at me nor did she show any impatience. Additionally, her mandarin is very precise and easy to understand. I would recommend Yuan if you are looking to maintain or improve your Chinese.

Kimberly T. from Washington, DC Yuan Z is an excellent tutor. She is very patient and her style informally shares the Chinese culture whereby more and more words hop across their linguistic boundaries. Obviously she has a knack for choosing expressions universally understood. She gives a very enthusiastic lesson. My girls love learning from Yuan. They are 7 and 9 years old. They have made great progress in only the 3rd lesson. I would highly recommend Yuan.

Pierre Y. from Washington, DC Yuan is great to work with! She has been very responsive by email. She's friendly, has been very patient and adaptable to my needs. Lessons are not pressured, and proceed at a very comfortable pace. In just two lessons, I've already learned a lot and know my written and spoken Chinese has improved. It's been great.

Matthew D. from Washington, DC I had an excellent experience with Yuan. I would highly recommend her. She was patient, intelligent, and knew how to design lessons to my needs. She also knew how much to push me so I could make regular progress in my grammar and vocabulary.

Eric B. from Alexandria, VA Within minutes I could tell Yuan was a fantastic teacher! She was extremely punctual to our first tutoring session, arriving in advance, with study materials and a lesson plan ready in hand. A friendly voice and smile always on her face, there was no reason for me to be shy in my speaking ability. She paid close attention to the topics I spoke about and made sure to gear my subsequent lessons to my personal needs. Yuan takes pride in her teaching. Her true passion is to develop long time students she can help blossom into beautiful linguists. This is easy to see by her customized lesson plans made just for me. From the topic of our lessons down to the personalized name and date on all materials, I could tell she truly cares for her students. I have studied Chinese at Universities in America and Beijing. I have tried many teaching styles. I really enjoy Yuan's style of creating our own study materials through Chinese/American News articles, focusing on current events, selecting key vocabulary, breaking down sentence structures, comparing translations, and using topics that interest me. Highly recommended.
