About Me

你好ni hao! :-)
My name is Dang Yanfen and my English name is Sunny Dang. I’m a professional, native teacher with 12 years experience for schools in the USA, UK and Singapore, 9 years experience teaching corporate students and 8 years experience with kids ages 4+. I can teach all the levels and ages of students. I am flexible, easy-going, patient and friendly. I love gardening, cooking, history, economics, psychology and philosophy. If you or your kid(s) want to take formal but enjoyable, interactive and engaging lessons, please feel free contact me. I would like to help.

Teaching approach

* Customized and Interactive Lesson
I can design individualized curriculum or courses based on each student's interests, goals and personalities. I'm passionate about teaching. I always adapt myself and my lessons to my students. You can learn at your own level, pace and style.

* Communicative and Effective
I can have conversation with you even you have very limited vocabulary. I can encourage you break the ice and build your confidence to talk in this beautiful language. If you're an advanced student, I can also give you video/audio homework and have a discussion on class by using the key sentence structure and core vocabulary in the video/audio.

* Easy and Fun lessons for Kids
For kids ages 4-12, we learn through their favorite songs, nursery rhymes ,stories , cartoons or in a theater way. For teenagers, I would like them to give a summary, presentation or have a discussion, do a research or write an essay. Most of them are very motivated and our lessons are very engaged.

* Business Chinese
I have 9 year experience teaching corporate students for Myngle Language School, Netherlands. I can teach business people who travel frequently to China and wish to do their business in China.

* I also offer lessons below
