Hello! This is Alex Lee from Taiwan!
I’m an avid language learner and sharer. Through my experience of learning foreign languages, not only just the language itself but also did I understand that learning culture is also an important subject to immerse, thus I provide various kinds of lessons about Mandarin, including conversation practices, intercultural communication, reading comprehension, even calligraphy, etc. It all depends on what you want to learn, and I will try best to teach!

I have taught over 4 years, met 500+ students from 30+ countries, like the States, Japan, European countries, Southeast Asian countries, etc. Also, I have experience in private tutoring and employee comprehensive training in travel industries.

My major in my university is applied foreign languages, specializing in English, linguistics and SLA (Second-language Acquisition) theories. I also studied in Japan as an exchange student for 1 year. Although my current job is not related to Mandarin education, I am now working as a Mandarin teacher as my side business, a content blogger and a Chinese calligrapher too.

I see myself a delightful, light-hearted, and fun person. My teaching styles vary but they all mean to be fun, stress-free and meaningful. Come and join a lesson with me!

💡 Features
1️⃣ Every lesson is customized just for you!
You are welcomed to send any request, questions, or anything you want to know via Message in the Verbling platform. I will discuss with you and make a customized plan for your requests.
2️⃣ All of the explanations can be in Mandarin, English or Japanese!
I am fluent in these 3 languages, so I can explain the... . I am still learning new languages, and I will try to utilize those as some aids to help you understand better in Mandarin too.
3️⃣ Support in all levels!
I can teach students in different levels. If you are not sure what level you are in, we can have a trial lesson to know it better! You will have a detailed report after the trial lesson, with your strength, weakness and some suggestions on how I can help you better.

💪 My Specialities

2️⃣ Bilingual Comparison (grammar differences, word choices, slangs, translations, etc.)
3️⃣ Intercultural Communication (cultural differences, customs, history)

⛔️ Disclaimers
1️⃣ Currently I do not accept students below 18 years old.
2️⃣ I am speaking in Taiwanese Mandarin, not Chinese one. There are some wordings, expressions, grammatical rules which are slightly different from China. If your goal is more specific to learn Chinese Mandarin (e.g. running a business in China, job hunting in China), I will recommend you find another Chinese teacher from China.

📢 About Customized Lessons
You may send your request, questions, or anything you want to know via Message in Verbing platform. I will discuss with you, and make a customized plan for your requests. It would be great if you have already known what you want to learn (e.g. listening/reading/writing/speaking, course packs, or any certain topics you want to learn about Mandarin and/or Chinese culture).

If you have any questions about Mandarin, I'm glad to help. Feel free to send me messages!

Looking forward to seeing you online! Thank you!
