Hi, I'm Elena. For two years,I've been teaching professionally here on italki.com. Before, I was a school teacher.I'm friendly, innovative, effective and patient. I get really good reviews. Please take a trial lesson!
Hello everybody, my name is Elena. I have been teaching Chinese for two years on italki. In that time, I've met students and made friends from all over the world. My youngest student is 4 years old, and the oldest is 62. Although these students are from many different countries, they all have a great enthusiasm for Chinese language and culture. I get good reviews from my students, and am happy to say that many of them are now my friends, as well as my students. I will always try my best in my work with you. I believe that your experience learning Chinese should be enjoyable as well as productive.
Unlike many italki teachers, I am a full-time teacher in italki. My schedule is open throughout the day, so students can choose the class times that suit them. I put all my energy and enthusiasm into teaching my students, and work with each one, to learn their needs, so I can provide quality teaching.
If you want to learn written Chinese, I can show you how. I can teach you to write Chinese characters.
If you want to learn oral Chinese, then I will help you choose interesting and useful topics.
If you want to take the Chinese HSK Test, I can help you to prepare effectively for the exams.
I will listen carefully so I understand your learning objectives. Usually, it's best if our work together complements some other modes of learning. So if you are studying elsewhere, or using particular texts, please let me know, so I can build it into my teaching.
Based on your needs and desires, I can prepare more formal course material or else help you with casual conversation. I'm happy to prepare material on any subject as long as you give me some warning of you want to learn, ahead of time.
If you are a Chinese language enthusiast, have studied or learned about Chinese history and culture, please do not hesitate to talk with me so we can learn more Chinese together.
