In China, I got a BA degree from China School of Journalism and another three years of studies majored in Chinese Language and Literature at Kunming College. So I have both English and Chinese education backgrounds and varied working experiences, I know these two countries `language, culture, and finance situations well.

Lihong is a fantastic tutor who has keenly helped me develop my written and spoken Chinese since I started taking lessons with her late last year. She is also very welcoming and accommodating. I highly recommend her lessons for those who would like to be taught either basic or advanced Chinese.
Lihong is a brilliant and very kind tutor. She goes over and beyond by sending me personally tailored recordings to practice what we just learned over a lesson. Although my family is from Hong Kong and I speak fairly fluent Cantonese, I am a near beginner to Mandarin and Lihong has been a very encouraging and effective tutor. She`s also just a lovely person to be around so lessons are always fun. Thank you Lihong for everything! I highly recommend her.
Lihong is a fantastic tutor. I`ve been a student for nearly 2 months and will continue for a long time. She is so helpful and always goes above and beyond to help you succeed.
Lihong is always well prepared with great lesson plans that are adapted to what you want to learn, always contactable with any questions and queries, very generous with time, lovely comfortable home in which to study, organises extra-curriculars if desired. She is also enthusiastic, passionate, patient, kind and organised!
I would definitely recommend Lihong if you are looking for a tutor.
Am very pleased that I found Lihong on Tutor Hunt. She is a very patient and conscientious teacher. She prepares lessons in advance and even during our "conversation" she later records a transcri pt and audio so I can review and revise. Most importantly she listens to what you want to get out of the lessons and tailors accordingly.
Lihong is a very experienced, patient, professional teacher with a perfect understanding of Mandarin and the Chinese culture. She took time to understand my specific level and needs and based on that selects the best approach and supporting books. She also takes time to explain the background of the use of certain words and how they connect to the Chinese culture. She is flexible in her planning and has a great silent place to conduct the lessons. She is caring about your progress as she offered to keep helping me even while I am back in my home country. I would recommend her to anybody that likes to learn Mandarin!
Lihong is great, she is involved and proactive in my learning. She always keeps my goals in sight during our lessons and helps me improve my Chinese the way I want it to be.

Very glad I found Lihong as a tutor here. She is very personable and encouraging, and good at addressing my immediate language learning needs. I have now done interviews successfully in Mandarin thanks to her coaching and guidance.
Lihong is an outstanding tutor, and I have had a very positive experience with her. She has a rich and profound knowledge of the Chinese language, history and culture, as well as a practical understanding of how to apply it to different contexts (be it every-day, business or formal).
Throughout our time together, I have studied a range of topics with Lihong; from self-introduction, to business articles, and to ancient Chinese poetry. Overall, I have found Lihong to be very friendly, relaxed and well-prepared. She can teach at any level (from absolute-beginner to advanced), and genuinely wants all her students to succeed. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Lihong is excellent with my 10 month old son, she`s enthusiastic, motivating and passionate about teaching. My son is always excited with her during each class. I would highly recommend her.
