Introduction: I am a native Chinese speaker. Came to the US 13 years ago. Live in Titusville Florida. Speak English fluently. Had education in China. Worked as an interpreter Russian-Chinese in China for 20 years. As all you know, interpreters have to be in a high level of both languages. I also have worked as a Mandarin teacher for many years and have thousands of hours of teaching experience. Have been voted for the top pro of the last three years. I teach people the Chinese language through Zoom. The results are very rewarding. I help my students, especially the beginners to build strong basic knowledge of “Pinyin” and grammar, and so after one or two years of study with me, they can study by themselves. I have been working with highly educated people, such as engineers, doctors and educators. Most of them have written reviews for me, please check. I also created study groups of different levels for my students where I check their homework and they can help each other. I offer a half-hour free consultation, please schedule one. We talk from there. I offer a half-hour free consultation. Please schedule one, we talk from there. I teach students who are over 18 years old.

Ying Shuang has been great. She is very knowledgeable and very helpful throughout every lesson. I have been learning a lot very quickly under her tutelage. She is also very friendly and nice, and I would highly recommend her as a teacher.

Ying Shuang is very nice and easy to speak to. She went over what her lessons would entail and gave me links to get the lesson book she uses during her classes. It was all very straightforward and easy to understand her and I can't wait to get started!!

I am a beginner mandarin student and before I started with Standard Mandarin I had tried using a do it yourself program online for a few months. My progress was extremely slow and I was becoming more confused by the day so I decided to try a tutor. With Standard Mandarin I am learning significantly faster and all of my questions are answered. During the session my instructor tests my knowledge and listens to my pronunciation and corrects any mistakes. They are extremely thorough in their explanations and make sure that I understand before moving on. We do listening and speaking practice, and they challenge me with reading aloud and writing. They are punctual and always quick to respond and also organized. I would recommend Standard Mandarin to anyone wanting to learn mandarin at any level.

My Mandarin classes have been extremely productive. Standard Mandarin offers a customized, disciplined, and fun way to learn Mandarin.My teacher, Yinshuang has helped me with speaking, listening, reading, and writing without cutting any corners. I get homework each week along with additional resources to read and practice listening. In addition to the phenomenal teaching and practical homework, Yinshuang also arranges for groups of students at the same level to share homework and at a certain level, to do projects together. This gives me additional opportunity to practice. Yinshuang also emphasizes the differences between Western an Chinese culture while teaching. This helps me not only understand the language at a deeper level but also provides mnemonic footholds that help me retain new vocabulary and characters more easily. I think the value of these lessons is phenomenal and HIGHLY recommend Standard Mandarin to both new and experienced students.

I'm so happy I chose to restart learning Mandarin with her--I had a bit of an odd starting point, as I used to be be pretty fluent in Mandarin from time in China, but had lost almost all speaking and all of my writing ability over the past 5-6 years. I still have a very unequal distribution of listening comprehension vs. speaking with correct grammar abilities, but Yin Laoshi has been amazingly flexible and adapted to my changing abilities and progression as we work through the HSK books. I have been super impressed with her ability to tailor our in-person lessons to my unique situation, interspersing interesting tidbits about radical structures with basic grammar points from the books and advanced vocabulary that I can sometimes dredge up a memory of. She is a great teacher, provides good structure, always on time, and clearly has the whole structure of learning Mandarin remotely down to a T: she will sometimes reference the book and chapter number that we're going to cover a concept or grammar point I ask about from memory, and then sends me the info immediately, and several times has sent me better explanations from other books of a given word or usage. Highly recommend if she's taking students, you won't find a better value!
