ABOUT THE TEACHER
Hi, I'm Aileen, a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese, from Shanghai, China. I finished high school in China and came to Montreal pursuing my Bachelor's degree in linguistics, which I recently completed. Thanks to my training in linguistics, I understand the common difficulties in learning a new language; therefore, I am very patient and courageous. It has been a pleasure helping my students build confidence in every aspect of learning Chinese language.
