What students say about Mandarin Chinese tutor Andrea

waveChinese 1st December 2020

Andrea Wang, Full-time professional Mandarin tutor with 11 years teaching experience

Writing is one of the things I am good at, along with long distance running. I like outdoorsy stuff - climbing mountains, hiking and so on. When I have free time I’m a keen mobile photographer. I was an editor for two years for a youth science magazine after university, and then took a deep breath and plunged into 7 years of Mandarin teaching followed by management, followed by more Mandarin teaching. Now I’m trying to put my experience to some kind of good, helping students study Mandarin quickly, have fun and stay interested.

Just the best solution !

I was looking for convenient mandarin tuition for my primary school aged children and found Wave Chinese through an online search. I was very pleased with it - it is very convenient as the lessons take place at home, the teachers are native mandarin speakers and experienced in teaching. They are patient with the children, as well as able to teach at the adult level. They are also very nice and friendly and able to relate to all ages. They are always on time, and they even know the curriculum in Australia to be able to support children in their school-based learning. I highly recommend this solution for anyone looking for mandarin tuition for their children or themselves.

Learning mandarin to work in China

Andrea has been an amazing teacher. She gauged my level of mandarin quickly, and recommended the right text book to work through. After a few months, we have finished the textbook and moved onto reading news articles. I am feeling so much more prepared for work in China, and I would highly recommend the services of Wave Chinese to anyone!
I am preparing to continue the lessons in China after I move over there, which will provide good support while I am transitioning to the new environment and work in China. Wave Chinese also provides helpful tips for what is needed to move to China.

What would you improve about this online Mandarin school?
No improvements needed! They regularly ask for suggestions, and are willing to make changes according to any requirements.

Great tutor and personalized instruction

Andrea was a fantastic tutor. From the start, she made sure to understand my individual learning goals and experience level. She then tailored a study plan specific to my needs. The tutoring sessions were fun and engaging, and Andrea would always send notes over Skype, which was very helpful in reviewing the material. Ellen was also very responsive to any questions I had about my account, lessons, etc. I also found Andrea's recommendations of study material very helpful - we used a combination of articles, textbooks, and books. Everything she recommended was based on the areas I was interested in. For me that was business/economics, but the tutoring would have been helpful for a variety of topics/experience levels. There was always a clear focus on individualized learning and progression on the student's terms. Highly recommend!

The tutoring was great! Thanks Andrea and Ellen!

Great, fun and affordable lessons

I have started my mandarin classes with Wave Chinese about three months ago as a complete beginner. There are a quite a lot of online lessons to select from on internet. I am very happy I made the decision to enrol with them. I think their unique selling point compared to the others is they provide assistance for trips in China. I am planning to go to China for an immersion trip so this is perfect. I find their study materials easy to follow and well explained. Andrea my teacher is nice, patient and detailed. She takes the time to explain some Chinese culture at each class which I find very interesting. She makes sure that I have memorized what I learned at the previous class and she makes me talk in mandarin as much as possible as we have a conversation during the class. I am looking to my class each week now and I am happy with the progress I have made so far. It is going to be a steep learning curve but I know that I am in good hands.

Caring and Personalised Teaching

My experience with WaveChinese had been extremely positive from my first enquiry. They offered the best value for money at the time and I was pleasantly surprised by the level of service and professionalism. My teacher had been incredibly supportive and encouraging for the past 18 months as I have been working from a very basic level towards fluency. There are structured lessons, following the HSK program but with the flexibility to tailor lessons to particular social or work events as required. My teacher had gone above and beyond to help me purchase well priced textbooks and novels and to give me insight into cultural matters and then helped me to rent a house during a visit to China.

Wave Chinese (with Andrea)

I’ve been having Skype lessons with Andrea for one month (3 a week). Lessons can be arranged flexibly during Beijing hours (at the weekend too) and are 50 minutes long. After every session she sets me homework to do to practice what we’ve learned during that lesson. Andrea is an excellent teacher, very friendly and enjoyable to work with. She was very good at firstly assessing my skill level and then pushing me accordingly. The better I get the harder she is pushing me. She is also happy to work on anything specific that is helpful for me living in singapore even if it would not be part of the traditional syllabus at this stage. Andrea and the service generally come highly recommended, I think that it is a good value service that allows very quick progress if you are willing to commit the time to it

Learning Chinese at your convenience

I've been contemplating learning Chinese for some time now and was weighing up the pros and cons of face-to-face vs. online. After trialling a lesson with Andrea, I immediately signed up for 60 lessons (be on the lookout for some ongoing specials for additional free lessons). I'm not always in one place so being online gives me the flexibility of having a lesson wherever I may be, at whatever time that suits (within reason of course), without the commute!

Andrea is a great teacher, gauges my level of understanding well, and challenges me to improve on my learning, week after week. Most importantly, I feel comfortable learning around her during our video calls, so I don't mind making mistakes or looking silly - its a part of the process. Highly recommend trialling a lesson before making a decision if it's right for you.

Studying with Andrea

Andrea is a pleasure to study with. She works hard to fit her teaching to my style of learning, which can be a bit chaotic at times. Andrea is always pushing me to improve, and sets great homework after each class. It's always a treat to see her smiling face during what can be a daunting task for westerners like me - learning Chinese.

One of the things I really like about studying with Andrea is that she is very patient, and always willing to try different things to get results. Learning Chinese can be quite challenging at times, but Andrea has a wonderful of encouraging me and getting me back on track.

I would recommend Andrea to anybody looking for more than a conversation partner, but an experienced teacher who can help you discover Chinese as you learn.

All I can say is, I have found my best Chinese teacher ever! She is a teacher with a big heart. She's very dedicated, compassionate and committed to her students. Her art of teaching motivated me to be more positive in learning Chinese. You will really learn and improve your Chinese with Andrea. She can immediately grasp your weak spot in Chinese grammar and can give you simple and polite sentence examples to correct your grammar. She's really a professional Chinese teacher.

Fun informative learning experience

This is a great online teaching platform. Andrea is a smart native speaker, and we have a great time in the class. I have learned so much. A lot of learning, a lot of laughter.

usually do it once a week, and then I have homework to review and study. Really covers the basics, and then we cover stuff from my day to day, go over and practice words and sentences I might use for my job etc.

Andrea is lovely, very friendly & patient, and considered. And a wonderful teacher, she knows how to explain complex things in a way that's easy to understand. Highly recommended

What would you improve about this program?
works great, a good balance of study, and review, covers all the basics

WaveChinese with Andrea

Working with Andrea has been wonderful. She teaches all sorts of things and is a lot of fun to talk to. Andrea explains things very well and knows the right amount of detail to use for explanations when teaching. She is very flexible about how to learn, e.g. sometimes we discuss random topics, other times we do only grammar for several classes, etc. She remembers what we discussed before better than I do and always checks to see how much I remember. Scheduling is very flexible even if I want to do many classes in a short time.

What would you improve about this program?
Not much to say here. I think everything is great!

Ana 07 July 2020

My teacher Andrea is very delightful to have as a teacher and knows where I am and what I need to work on. She knows what we will do in class and always gives me the support that I need. Unlike other teachers that I have had she cares about if I learn the subject and how her students are learning. She is flexible with scheduling so even if I’m on vacation I do not have to worry about missing a class. We have recommended this company to many of our family and friends who have also had similar experiences with her.

Andrea from WaveChinese is the best teacher!!!

I highly recommend my teacher, Andrea from WaveChinese. WaveChinese always response fast and provide the best service for all your questions. I started my learning journey with Teacher Andrea, at first, I'm a bit hesitated and having doubt on myself whether I can do that. My teacher made me believe in myself and she went an extra mile to support me. Learning chinese became so fun for me and I now believe I can do that. My teacher is very patient and supportive to her students. As it's one-to-one lessons, you'll have a plenty of chance to talk and understand about the language and culture, not like traditional classroom.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
Learning chinese is not that difficult anymore! Fun and enjoyable experience!
