About Me

Greetings:
Hi my friends!  I am the author, the teacher, the tutor and founder of Apple Chinese Online! I grew up in Beijing, I am a Beijinger! I am a professional editor and a VA state certified Mandarin Chinese teacher. 

I started teaching Chinese when I was a sophomore in college. From then on I've kept it as a part time job and also as a hobby. My first student was an Australian who was an electrical engineer and worked for Nestle (China). He learned practical Chinese and a little business Chinese from me. After he finished my Chinese lessons, he mastered basic spoken Chinese to solve the common language problems in daily life in Beijing. He likes "Beijing hua" (Mandarin Chinese) very much! My second student was a guy from New York. He used to study Chinese from a tutor from "Si Chuan" (a province in south of China). During my first lesson for him, I found he has a strong "Si Chuan & American" accent. I helped him correct many pronunciation errors. I want my students to master standard Chinese pronunciation so I put my full effort forward to help them. My third student was a guy from Boston. He has mastered Pinyin and is very interested in learning Chinese characters. I used the material I wrote to teach him, the result was very good, he has mastered many basic Chinese characters and lots of common Chinese words. In our lessons, we discussed the similarity between Chinese radicals' meaning and some of the English words' prefix, suffix or letter combination which has a meaning. We can see that different languages still share something meaningful.

In my lessons, my students also can learn singing Chinese songs.  Learning to sing Chinese songs makes my lessons very relaxing and special. From learning the lyrics of the songs, you will gain interest in learning Chinese and also can improve quickly.

At last, I want to thank my elder sister who encouraged me to set up AppleChineseOnline and I hope you can have a happy experience of studying Chinese with me.
