About Molly-Shanghai

My instincts for guiding foreigners in learning Mandarin are razor-sharp, after teaching dozens of classes and long-term private students, lots of beginners, many intermediate and advanced as well. Some of them were done using Skype - I’ve had no trouble with that method, it’s an easy transition.

Learning habits vary enormously from one person to another, so it’s important that the teacher become aware of each student’s strong and weak areas, offering instructions designed to keep the lessons and self-study *productive*.

If you’re just beginning, I’ll recommend one of several textbooks, depending on how much study time you have. For more advanced students, I’ll assess your level and goals, and we’ll decide together which text to use, and other aspects of your learning program as well.

A good teacher knows how to balance the intense learning moments with lightness and fun – everyone knows that feeling, right? I enjoy setting students on the fast-learning track.

Besides earning a bachelor’s degree in English at Shanghai International Studies University, I completed a rigorous training and certificate of Accreditation Grade Senior Chinese Language Teacher, issued by International Profession Certification Association (IPA). I have lived with my American husband for 6 years, so my English to Chinese translation skills are also very keen – many students are grateful I can answer their questions, which often require those skills. I’ve also taught lots of advanced students using only Mandarin.
