*If this is your first time booking with me, please choose the time which is at least 3 days later, so that I can have enough time to customize materials for you.
I'm a native Mandarin speaker from Taiwan and have been teaching near 4000 Mandarin lessons online the past 5 years, and helped more than 150 students improve their Mandarin skills.
I have multiple learning experiences with different languages, so I know how students feel and their struggles and am happy to support you along your Mandarin learning journey:)
Me as a Teacher
As a full-time Mandarin teacher, I like to help my students learn what's useful in their daily life and topics they like talking about in their mother language! (That's also why I'm not specialized at teaching with text books.)
Therefore, please contact me & answer Qs below before booking a lesson, so that I can create your OWN customized material for you!
1.Your Mandarin learning experience (level / how long have you learned)
2. Have you learned Pinyin?
3. Want to focus on speaking / grammar / Let teacher plan for you
4. In materials, when there's Mandarin characters, do you want simplified or traditional ones?
5. topics you want to talk/learn about?
My lessons & teaching style
I focus on conversational practice (listening & speaking) the most, but I explain grammar points and vocabulary along the process to help my students build up their Mandarin database.
For focusing on a specific grammar point, please let me know in advance, so that I can prepare some material to show you and explain better!
*Student being late or absent still pay the full price. (Teacher will wait for the whole scheduled time even if students being late.)
*No rescheduling nor refund within 24 hours notice. Teacher has saved the time slot, won't be able to fill in with another student if the original one cancel or reschedule.
*Everyone's time is precious, so let's respect each other's.

Yi-Cheng is awesome! I've been having lessons for a long time now. The classes are customised around my daily life and what I need to know, and I feel like I'm improving a lot over time. She also sends me a document with all the words that we've used and an audio recording for me to review.
She's also really friendly, approachable and easy to talk to. Conversation flows naturally with lots to talk about as she's always well prepared, and I always have a great time.

After 20 lessons with Yi-Cheng, I can say I'm quite happy with how much I've learned. Yi-Cheng is always quick to correct mistakes with my grammar and pronunciation, which I greatly appreciate. My speaking and listening skills have improved quite a bit as a result of my lessons with her. Overall, I would highly recommend Yi-Cheng.

Yi-Cheng is so enthusiastic & willing to help her students, & her hands-on approach gives me confidence that I can finally start to improve my Chinese speaking & listening skills. Even just from a single trial lesson, I feel like I've already learned so much!
