Hi, I'm Cera from Taiwan. I teach Mandarin Chinese and English. I was a linguist so I've learnt Pinyin to teach Chinese and I use both simplified and traditional Chinese.
I used to live in Canada and UK, tutoring many expatriates to elevate their Chinese skills in their business conversations and in daily lives.
For beginners, I teach in the way a toddler acquires his first language: listening and speaking first. I'll help you improve your pronunciation, tones, conversation skills and make sure you speak like a native speaker. Furthermore, I like to share much about Chinese culture, so you will learn not just the language but also the culture and the background stories, which are more interesting than the language itself. For advanced students who want to learn to read and write, I'll tell you how Chinese characters are coined in the beginning and how to easily recognize them instead of seeing them as pictures.
