Information about Anqi
My name is AnQi (pronounced Angie). My Mandarin students currently range from 2-year-old to 72-year-old. I was born and raised in Mainland China and am a native Mandarin speaker who resided in Canada for 12 years. Before teaching Mandarin as a foreign language, I also taught swimming and Korean martial art Taekwondo to children and adults part-time back when I was a student.
I prefer the word "equipping" over "teaching", as my goal is to make Mandarin usable to my students regardless their purpose for studying. Students are expected to instantly apply the "limited" materials introduced in each session to build endless expressions. They perhaps won`t learn 1000 words or characters in the near future, but they will speak Mandarin from Day 1.To my 16 and under students, I show them that Mandarin is fun and interesting, and to my 16 and plus students, I demonstrate that Mandarin can be easy and empowering.

Feedback For Anqi (2)
I am so glad to have found Anqi as the perfect conversation practice partner. She listens very patiently to you as you stumble your way through speaking a new language, provides you with vocab you are missing along the way and is also just a lovely human being to talk to. Most importantly, she is passionate about making language teaching fun and full of ambition for creating her own resources and teaching style.
Anqi was a kind and warm person, able to understand what we needed the tutoring for. She also was very expertly with the chinese/mandarin subject matter. Thank you again, Anqi!
