你好！我叫Abby，我是台灣人。I've been teaching Mandarin in Melbourne, Taipei and online to students from over 20 different countries. I love to communicate with people from all over the world, that's why I have a passion for teaching Mandarin.
Listen to My Podcast:【Talk Taiwanese Mandarin with Abby】
I am a friendly and open-minded person and have various hobbies. Apart from languages, my interests include music, writing, drawing, travel, politics and learning to play guitar, and so on.
Me as a Teacher
Want to Speak Mandarin Like a Native?
In my Conversation Practice classes, we will discuss a topic that interests you. It can be anything! I will help you to speak and express your thoughts and opinion confidently and fluently. I will make you a personal google document and keep feedback and note for you so you can review after class.
My lessons & teaching style
In our lessons, I speak mostly Mandarin with you and you will be speaking at least half of the lesson so that you can improve your listening and speaking skills quickly.
．For beginners: After reviewing different types of textbooks, I choose the best one and edited the special materials which are truly practical and easy to learn for students.
．For upper levels: I'll discuss with you and design a suitable course and lesson style for you. We can either follow suitable textbooks or look into authentic materials to make learning effective and interesting!

Abby is a great teacher. She is very passionate, professional and organized. She makes learning fun while also being serious. We waste no time in class, and I have progressed a lot in my time with her.
She has made about 75 slide shows on Quizlet that are very helpful in studying. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve and learn Chinese.

Abby prepares her lessons well and is very friendly and patient.
Another useful lesson with Abby. I appreciate that she gives me lots of opportunities to ask questions. She really wants to make sure I understand the topic we're studying before moving on.
I also want to comment on Abby's English. Her English is completely fluent. I imagine she must have lived abroad to speak that well. I mention this because I have had tutors in the past that couldn't manage English well and that created problems for me when I needed explanations in English.
