Enthusiastic tutor willing to explore students' interests in an innovative manner. Flexible teaching methods custom-made for every student. Inclusion of homework optional though recommended. Focusing on conversational practicality, the lessons will also ensure Chinese comprehension in both written and spoken form.
A passionate language learner, fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin, and English. Began public speaking competitions at the age of 5. 3rd Place in the 14th and 15th World Contest for Chinese Students and 2nd Place in 16th Youth Chinese Composition Competition.
I began tutoring year 10 in Queensland Academy of Health Sciences as part of the school tutoring programme, offering general and homework help to the students. This experience enabled me to feel confident in tutoring especially for the International Baccalaureate Mandarin Ab intio course. As I personally knew the teachers I was able to offer them advice which specifically allows them to flourish in combination to their teaching methods.
Jelena was a main student of mine who I helped throughout years 11 and 12. I assisted her on areas such as oral, reading comprehension, and writing. She graduated IB with a 6 out of a maximum of 7 in Ab initio Mandarin. She knew that she could access my help at any time and that I would always be there for her.
A review from Julia, a student that I assisted:
"Jennie tutored me during my first year of IB Mandarin ab initio, to help me prepare for a Chinese Speaking Competition. Jennie is caring, very easy going, and she is an awesome teacher for all levels of Chinese.
As a beginner Mandarin Chinese speaker myself, I would definitely recommend tutoring with Jennie as she helped me develop the foundations for speaking the language - an important skill which allowed me to achieve a 7 in IB Mandarin ab initio."
A review from Sofia, who I still continue to assist:
"To whom it may concern,
I have known Jennie Chan for just a few months as my Mandarin tutor for Year 12 IB course content. During this time, Jennie has been exceptionally helpful in improving my reading, writing and speaking abilities, as well as completing homework tasks. Jennie has also assisted with editing for written assignments.
Jennie is committed to helping others and is a fantastic teacher. She has increased my interest in learning Mandarin and created a supportive environment to develop my language skills.
I would highly recommend Jennie Chan for Mandarin tutoring at any level.

Perfect! Jennie is a great teacher, I absolutely enjoyed our lessons. She has a deep knowledge not only of Chinese language, but cultural aspects and historical facts, that made studying more interesting. She is a kind and patient tutor. I was a complete beginner in Chinese, so the task was quite challenging. I would definitely recommend Jennie to all levels and all ages.
Alena was an intelligent student who knew exactly what she wanted to learn and was a pleasure to teach. She has prior experience with learning other languages hence my job was not difficult as I simply had to answer her questions. She greatly appreciated my teaching method and I look forward to tutoring her again.
Jennie tutored me for grade 11 and 12 Mandarin on the Gold Coast. Jennie is compassionate, easy to understand and dedicated to ensuring you fully understand what she is teaching. I would definitely recommend Jennie as a tutor, she improved my grades from a B to and A and is helpful in cultural knowledge and proof-reading assignments.
