Hello, I am Lillian Chen. I have plenty of Mandarin teaching experience; I worked as a Mandarin teacher in different schools for more than 6 years to over 150 students. I prefer teaching adults but can teach teens as well. I have a very clear understanding of how best to learn and teach a foreign language. I always make sure that the lessons are fun, so both of us are properly motivated.

2 Highly responsible

In addition to being a Mandarin teacher in different schools in the past six years till now, I'm now also freelancing in book translation (English to Chinese), with three books at hand from different publishers in Beijing and Shanghai respectively, and they both found my job satisfactory.

I am lucky to have Lillian as my Mandarin teacher! She is knowledgeable in the language, motivational in teaching, and she has nice personality. I progressed very fast with her.

Lilian is a very good teacher. She is very organized and has a very good range of teaching resources. She's also very friendly and has great communication skills. My progress in Chinese has been faster than I had imagined before starting the lessons. She definitely can make things easier for students.

Dear Lillian,
The best thing about you is that you are a good teacher. Your teaching style is great because you have a good voice and you are creative. You also encourage me to learn how to speak Mandarin. Thanks a lot!

We found Lilian professional full of fun, flexible with arrangements. Helped us to get better with Chinese skills. As a typical modern Shanghai young womon, she is knowledgeable on Shanghai city and culutre.

Despite only having a 1 month crash course, Lilian gave us a great start of the Chinese language. Lilian is inspiring, knowledgeable with a lovely nature and sense of humour. We had a great time learning and would definitely recommend her as a Mandarin tutor.

Mike S-Austria

Lilian was very pleasent , good knowledge of Chinese and has a great sense of humor . Me and my mate took 6 month lesson with her and had the most awesome time. Her knowledge of Chinese culture was brilliant and was able to answer most of our questions and she also understood Western culture which was a bonus. Thanks, Lilian.
