Nihao! I am Sherry, I'm 28 and I am an experienced Mandarin teacher. I moved from Jiangxi, where I was born and raised, to Shanghai 5 years ago and thereafter, I have been teaching Chinese in various schools. I have a certificate as translator and interpreter and worked as a freelancer translator as well since 2013. Over the years, I have learnt how to approach and interact with my students, understand their weaknesses and strength, their needs and personalities. I believe it is very important to make a student feel at ease, confident and motivated. All of them are important. I would love to help you learn and appreciate even more my beautiful language, get to know fundamental rules but also useful expressions, in order to be able to handle a conversation with any Chinese speaker in a short time. I hope to receive a request from you soon.

2014-present taught individual classes, group classes, in-company lessons, either focused on grammar or conversation or use of the language at Mandarin House, Miracle Mandarin, Mandarin Morning.
