Hello! My name is Winnie. I would like to share some information about my personal and tutoring background, which I hope will help you decide whether or not to consider me as your language tutor.
I was born in China and grew up speaking both Mandarin and Cantonese. After finishing junior high in China, I immigrated to the U.S. and completed high school in New York City. I went on to attend CUNY and earned my BS and MS (Library and Information Sci). Despite coming to this country at the chall...
My son needs some support with his Mandarin. He seems more confident and less stressed with the help of Winnie. She worked with him on homework and building his knowledge of the language. THANK YOU Winnie!

My Chinese has improved so much since I started working with her! I?m enjoying every bit of it and we work very very hard!!

Winnie is an exceptional tutor, fully fluent in English and Chinese (I'm learning Mandarin but Winnie tutors Cantonese as well), and highly knowledgable in their respective cultures. She is very patient and considerate, willing to work around her students' schedules to find the best routine for them. She has a wide range of additional resources and uniquely tailors her teaching approach and homework assignments to fit the abilities of her students and their learning objectives. Mandarin is a difficult language, but Winnie makes the learning process enjoyable and efficient. I highly recommend Winnie and am looking forward to continuing my lessons with her.

We went over basic sounds, vowels, alphabet, and tones. Great first lesson to establish basic knowledge of the language. I feel ready to move forward with learning more!
- Nora L. from Brooklyn, NY
I needed help and individualized tutoring to supplement my learning Chinese at school, and this was exactly that. As a tutor, she was very knowledgeable about both Chinese culture and the language itself, and helped me a lot with improving my pronunciation and basic foundations for the language. I hope to continue well and progress with her!

I am a student at University of Washington, Seattle and I am currently a Linguistics and Chinese Major. Winnie helped me study for 3 months. She helped me gain confidence in speaking and helped me to acquire resources. She also has linguistic knowledge which was great for me as I am always interested to learn information about my major. She helped me pass the Chinese 101 class so I could start school in Chinese 102. She was flexible with meeting times and understanding. If I wasn't in school I would have kept her as a tutor for much longer. For anyone who wants to gain fluency and is a dedicated student, she is the tutor you want. Thank you, Winnie!, For all your help!

Winnie is very organized and can help students reach their goals with the Mandarin language. She is willing to work with the student at their level. I appreciate her willingness to work with me and find a time that works for both of us.
- Caroline R. from Bothell, WA
Knew exactly what questions to ask to find out where I am at with my education. She was super talkative and made the most of the time we had. Yes yes yes yes why do have to write 160 characters I have stuff to do with my day
- Adam W. from Marysville, WA
Winnie gives every student the opportunity to work however they prefer. She takes some time to understand where you are at, and then begins from wherever you are. She will teach you whatever you want, or whatever you DON'T want. In my case I want to learn everything, so we go over speaking, reading, writing (traditional as well as simplified), and even significance to culture and government, and the history of China and the history and differences of Mandarin and Cantonese.

Winnie has been tutoring me online (for Chinese) and our online lessons have been really effective. She puts in a lot of effort to make each and every lesson exciting and interesting by sharing background and cultural stories, helpful tips for pronunciations and easier memorization for certain words. Furthermore, not only does Winnie provide challenging homework after each lesson but she also provides me with various resources to further my learning including effective online study tools, smart and entertaining videos, helpful audio recordings and much more. Although our lessons are online, I feel as if it is the same as a one on one in person meeting! I truly learn a lot from each lesson. I highly recommend Winnie's tutoring services.
- Yuri K. from Seattle, WA
Winnie has done a wonderful job tutoring our children. She keeps the mandarin lessons interesting via her teaching style. Winnie keeps the kids engaged with her enthusiasm and varies the activities. Everything from telling stories, teaching practical phrases, fun videos, and a reward system, has kept the lessons interesting and fun for the children. We have been involved with various tutors in the past, so without hesitation, we recommend Winnie to anyone interested in learning mandarin.
- Keith B. from Purcellville, VA
Winnie is really a great educator and has a very in depth understanding of Mandarin. Her lessons are fun and she has a unique approach to teaching. I function at my highest level in a structured learning environment and Winnie has accommodated me and prepared lessons that meet my needs and at the same time, making learning enjoyable.
- Timothy C. from Everett, WA
Winnie was very diligent in providing us with various learning resources, feedback on tests and homework preparation. She always came prepared, motivated and ready to get to work teaching. Our kids have really enjoyed working with her and have shown great improvement in a short time.
- Jon M. from Bothell, WA
I have been very satisfied with my lessons to date. I have taken 4 lessons as of now, and in each lesson Winnie has been prepared with a lesson plan, but has also modified each lesson based on what I need or want to work on. It is an enjoyable experience every week.
- Greg R. from Bothell, WA
Winnie has been great to work with. She is patient with me when I ask questions and has done a good job helping me with the basics. She also speaks Chinese, which has been a big help when explaining more complicated items.
- Jeff L. from Bothell, WA
Winnie is the best and most helpful teacher!!! I had some problems speaking English properly before Winnie's tutoring lessons. After only a few lessons, my colleagues at work have already noticed improvement in my speaking! She really cares and understands me as a student. I always had difficulty learning grammar in the past but Winnie is able to explain it clearly to me. I enjoy her tutoring very much and also learn so much from each lesson!
- AL L. from Kirkland, WA
Before tutor my Chinese was mediocre at best. Within the first lesson I could already hear improvement in my speaking and in my confidence. Ever since then my Chinese has increased tremendously. My final semester grade even went up 3% with just a few weeks of lessons. Lessens cover a lot of material that is tailored to me but its fun and goes by quickly. Overall Winnie has been a fantastic Tutor and I can't wait till the next lesson.
- Patty M. from Woodinville, WA
Winnie is very good about customizing lesson plans to meet my daughter's needs. She is very patient and finds age appropriate lessons that keep my daughter engaged during the lesson.
- Angie L. from Kirkland, WA
Winnie is very patient with my children and has creative ways to keep them engaged. One of my kids is young and gets tired at the end of the day but Winnie does a great job of keeping her engaged. I couldn't be happier with her!
