Hello there! My name is Hillary, and I’m a native Mandarin and Cantonese speaker from Canton, China. I’m an out-going and open-minded person! In my spare time, I love reading, writing, singing, learning new languages and travelling. Cafes are my home during the weekends! My favourite country is Japan!!! Currently learning Spanish and Japanese at the same time (I love both of them!!!). Looking forward to seeing you in my lesson!

Hillary always has prepared lessons available with lots of structure if you want that, or as in my case, I prefer having free-style conversations with occasional use of prepared materials, for example, to handle reading exercises. All in all, I really love my lessons with Hillary. She is quite awesome!

I've been learning Chinese together with Hillary for about a year. All this time she's been an absolutely great teacher, always well-prepared, easy-going, patient and understanding, with extremely helpful personalized advice and additional materials. Every time we have a lesson, we have a lot of fun, which makes learning Chinese feel like a trip to the amusement park :D I definitely recommend her to anyone who's interested in learning this, or in fact any language! :)

Hillary is hands-down the best teacher I've had on italki, she might even be the best teacher I've had for anything ever. Hillary's really good at keeping the conversation fun and spontaneous - even when I'm stumbling through the language - and she's helped me massively improve my comprehension, speaking and vocabulary. Hillary's fluency in English and skill at explaining concepts and meanings (in any language) is super helpful when I have more detailed questions or if I switch to English to say something. When Hillary gives homework it's always interesting, and she has great vocab and grammar write-ups for heaps of Chinese short videos - my favourite so far is about Ding Zhen's World in Tibet. Also, if I need more time, Hillary's very chill about taking an extra week or so to study and discuss the homework, which helps me get a better grasp of the vocab and structures. If you're looking for a Chinese teacher, I can't recommend Hillary enough!

Hillary is very engaging and clear in her teaching style. She made me feel comfortable and interested to learn more. She makes it easy for me to follow and provides material that I can easily access. Highly recommend her and I will continue having lessons with her.
