Hi, my name is Chelsea. I have been a professional bilingual teacher (Mandarin and English) for over ten years. I consider teaching is my calling. Over the past year, I have taught Mandarin lessons at Google (Mountain View) as a full-time contractor. Now I work full time as a private Mandarin tutor, mainly in the South Bay area. My students include engineers, lawyers, business executives, and financial professionals. If you would like to have a professional Mandarin tutor, I am one of the very few choices in the Bay Area you can find (since few Chinese here are trained in the language teaching area). In addition, I dedicate ALL my working hours in teaching Mandarin. When I am not in class, I prepare lessons and working on Chinese teaching materials.
Please review my resume and contact us if you are interested. Thank you.
Please also contact us for a corporate Chinese instruction proposal. Chelsea is also a Chinese Translator in San Jose
