Hi everyone! My name is Wilson or Jiayuan Liu (My Chinese Name). But…My students usually like to call me --- Master Liu.
I am originally from Shanghai, China. I have been an Mandarin language tutor for almost 6 years. I’ve taught university students, business professionals, and others aged from 10 to 56, mostly in Canada - where I have been living for many years.
I’ve coached 50+ students from various levels (beginner to advanced, many of them became long-term students); I am also able to tutor students to conquer HSK tests as well. I have experience of helping a few students mastered Mandarin (speak almost fluently) within 2 years! And some even passed HSK level 5 or 6 (People usually need around 4 years or above) --- Trust me, you can do the same!!!
I enjoy teaching and my focus is always on adapting, selecting and creating materials and organizing tasks to achieve your personal study goals and life objectives. I prioritize speaking and listening above the other three skills unless you have a specific preference.
What does Master Liu teach?
1. Mandarin Beginner Courses (Focus on Speaking & Listening)
2. Mandarin Advanced Level Courses
3. HSK Level 1 – 6 Prep Courses
4. Business Mandarin – Doing Business in China (languages, cultures, and other guides)
***I understand each student has different need or at a different language level. I am dedicated to spending hours to design and tailor my class structure/content for each session.
What you can expect from my class?
In my opinion, speaking and listening are the most important skills in learning a foreign language. My philosophy is that the goal of learning a new language is to be able to communicate. And the essential part communication is “speaking” and understand what other people are saying. I don’t want any of my students say they can type out perfect sentences in Chinese ON the computer. That’s not enough. So I always get my students talking in Mandarin as much as possible during each session. I truly understand the difficulty of mastering a new language, you might feel uncertain, nervous, or even scared when you try to speak another language --- Don’t worry, I will “hold your hand” every step of the way to overcome any obstacles!
For my classes,
I will be using certain textbooks and documents that I prepared as class materials – which I recommend you to be able to find time to study them before/after classes. In addition, I would often give you assignment (recommend to finish, but not mandatory).
Periodically, I’d like to make some quizzes to simply check your progress; and understand how to help you to improve your Mandarin. (No pressure! I won’t punish you to write certain Chinese characters for 100 times if you make a mistake on that.)
Also, being a Marketer as my professional job helps me understand how to differentiate my classes from other Mandarin teachers.
I will be utilizing various interesting resources to help you not only learn the language, but also understand Chinese culture (current news, ancient stories, history, slangs, tourism, and custom etc.).
There will be some games involved in the classes to help you learn as well. For those of you who are especially interested in doing business (or working) in China, I open dedicated Business Mandarin classes for you to choose.
Other things I should know about Master Liu?
I am patient, kind and always reachable (If you live in North American, I am able to respond within minutes unless I am sleeping, having meetings, on commute; for others, I will try to answer your questions within few hours).
I grew up in Shanghai, so no accent.
I have lived in Canada and Australia for many years, so I can explain everything clearly in English for you to understand.
I love to chat about movies/music/soccer, travel around the world, and enjoy good food. Also, humour is important.
