Teachers Onsite at Sarasota, FL
This is April Pan. 大家好，我是宝妈。I was born and grew up in the northern part of mainland China. Mandarin is my native language, and I currently live in the U.S.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics, and I have been teaching non-Chinese speakers Mandarin for about four years. I have taught kids, teens and adults at all levels. I listen to the students’ needs and personalize the lessons for them. I offer Mandarin skills with listening, talking, reading, writing and Pinyin. Students can choose to learn one or more of these skills.
I am very patient and energetic. Yes, patience and energy are not in conflict. In my class, you will have a lot of fun and feel that learning Chinese is not that hard. Soon you will be talking in Chinese.
My son, Baobao, and I are the authors of “Learn Mandarin with Chinese Mom and Son.” From this material, students will follow us and go deep into a typical Chinese family’s daily lives. Students will learn about daily conversations, workplace dialogues, school activities and Chinese culture. Students will also learn about Chinese food, history, folklore, games and festivals. We will go on vacation to teach you about travelling in China too.
Again, this is Baoma. Please join me, and let’s start the fun journey of learning Mandarin.
你好。My name is Ye, Chengying, I look forward to meeting you! I grew up in China. Thus, I’m a native Chinese speaker! In 2013 I earned my bachelor’s degree in education from Hainan Teachers College. After graduating I moved to Thailand where I taught Chinese in a public high-school for 3 years. In 2016 I began teaching at Brookside middle school here in Sarasota! I myself am a student of multiple languages. Teaching is my biggest passion, and I love seeing my students progress. I know the trials of learning a new language because I’ve gone through the process myself. With that being said, I can relate to my students struggles when learning a new language and help them grow. I not only give my students fish, but I teach them how to fish for themselves. I teach all levels of Chinese. I find no greater joy when I see my students reading, writing, and communicating in Chinese. I am so excited to work with BaoAce education. I look forward to seeing you there!

I have experience in teaching Chinese to Americans from the very beginning level, and my students’ ages range from 6 to adults.

I love teaching Mandarin so much. I passed the Mandarin Proficiency Test (普通话水平测试) and got a Second Class Upper Level Certificate (普通话水平测试等级证书，二级甲等). I spent my spare time teaching Mandarin, and helped the students in the South to correct their pronunciation. My students just love me.
Before my son went to Elementary school I taught him Mandarin. This includes how to write Chinese characters, reading and spelling. At age 7 he can read all the books by himself, including Chinese classical literature, with the exception of a few uncommon Chinese characters.
