Hello, my name is Jie Sheng Walker. I am a professional and experienced Mandarin Chinese instructor. You may call me Teacher Jie like most of my students or just Jie. ^^
I was born in a small city in the mainland of China, a native Mandarin speaker with no accent. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language from Hebei University of Economics & Business and also have 2.5 years of experience as a full time Mandarin Chinese language teacher for two international schools in Krabi of Thailand.
I have taught students who are from many different countries, such as Britain, America, Thailand, Korea, Russia, France, Italy, Bangladesh and so on, levels ranging from kindergarten, primary, secondary, university and adults. I can teach Mandarin Chinese from beginners to upper advanced, children and adults, business, travel and daily conversations, grammar and vocabulary, sentence structures and phonetics.
I am a patient and lovely teacher and very easy to communicate . I think during learning a language, interest is the first thing. I aim to inspire students' the sense of language with amusing teaching and find the easiest way for students to learn Mandarin Chinese and comprehend my teaching best. Language learning shouldn't be that hard and boring, it should be like mastering language skills with having fun in it at the same time. So my lessons are worth to have a try!
The methods of my teaching is flexible, also my schedule. Yeah, if you wanna book lessons with me to suit your time, no worries, just let me know a week in advance, I can book my time slots for you! At the same time I can and I am willing to use different teaching methods to suit your needs in Mandarin Chinese learning. I can teach you academically like about Chinese tests preparations, improving language skills and basic conversational Mandarin skills of working or travelling in China. Or inspire your interest in Mandarin Chinese with some interesting conversational lessons about fun stuff in Chinese language and culture. Super welcome you to discuss with me about what type of lessons you will need!
I can happily help you with Chinese grammar, vocabulary and phonetics, Chinese reading and listening skills, HSK and some else types of test preparations, Mandarin speaking, such as daily conversations, business and travel Chinese, etc. There are still other styles of lessons I am capable of offering, Chinese cultural interest lessons or just having some fun in Chinese learning via freely talking with me!
Oh by the way, actually my name is Sheng Jie (盛洁）according to the order of Chinese names. As my husband is English, Walker is my married surname. Yup, I am trying to say my English is good and fluent enough to teach Mandarin to foreign students in English language if you need me to explain more and facilitate your learning of Mandarin better.
Feel free to contact me if you have any interest in learning with me or any questions, or just needing some suggestions or help of living or travelling in China. Will be my pleasure to help you. Looking forward to hearing from and meeting you very soon! :))
