Catherine is a native speaker of Chinese language with over 5 years of teaching experience. With more and more Americans learning Chinese, there is a demand in quality Chinese teachers who can help non-native speakers quickly master the key skills in speaking a tonal language and read Chinese characters. Catherine can teach children in grade schools, college adults, and adults out of college to learn Chinese. Catherine has taught middle school students who never learned Chinese before. Catherine has also taught adults who already started speaking Chinese with a few years of study experience. Catherine enjoys seeing white, black, and brown Americans make progress in speaking Chinese language.
What sets Catherine apart from other native-speakers of Chinese language is the fact that Catherine possesses a national certification in HSK Mandarin speaking skills. The HSK certification is available globally for both native-speaks and non-native speakers of Chinese language. For native speakers who grow up in a country of Chinese speaking, they are required by the Ministry of Education of China to possess an advanced level in HSK certification in order to seek employment in teaching and media occupations. Catherine holds a B1 level certificate in HSK, and is nationally certified by the Ministry of Education to seek Teaching Chinese as a Second Language globally in the world.
