I carry out a holistic approach. In my opinion, it is important that the student views Mandarin learning, or any language learning, more than a classroom activity. I help my students to integrate the language into something personal, so that the students' learning motivation is constantly encouraged and stengthened.
I believe that each student is different. People prefere different ways of learning: some learn the best with textbooks and grammar in bullet points, while others prefer pictures, audios or interactive practice. I try my best to understand my students' preferences and design the classes accordingly, so that my classes are easy and efficient.
For people with zero Chinese knowledge, I always start with the proper pronunciation of Pinyin. It is vital before moving on to character learning. For people with some knowledge of Chinese, I tailor the classes based on language proficiency and the personal need of the student. With songs and videos, my classes focus on either reading comprehension or oral communication.

Born and raised in China, I started teaching Mandarin to foreign exchange students as a part-time job at the university when I studied in Beijing in 2009.
I moved to Singapore to get my master degree in International Relations, where I also worked full-time in a consultancy and at the National University of Singapore as a researcher on political science and security issues. During my time of study and work in Singapore, I continued teaching people interested in Mandarin learning, just because to me it's so much fun to be able to help others and present my own culture via language teaching.
I am currently based in Berlin because of my Ph.D. project at FU, Berlin and Einstein Stiftung. Besides Mandarin teaching and the research project, I work as a freelancer to provide interpretation services to conferences and events. I also translate journal articles and commercial materials when I have time.
I am looking forward to helping more that are interested in Mandarin learning.

Perfekt! Excellent! Pei is a highly skilled and enthusiastic Mandarin teacher. She adjusts her lessons to the individual student's needs and pace and explains everything - from character origins to grammar points - in a very engaging way. As Mandarin is arguably not the easiest language, she goes to great lengths to encourage and motivate students whenever difficulties arise.
Other than being a Mandarin teacher, Pei is also an exceedingly well-read political scientist. I always enjoy our conversations about the world!
Pieter is such a brilliant student! One rarely sees a student both gifted and diligent, and Pieter is both! Our classes together are always something I look forward to in the week! He's got a unique sensitivity and approach to study pronunciation, which, in fact, has inspired me to improve my own teaching. In this perspective, he is also my "老师." I have no doubt that he will achieve his goals in the future, given it language learning or career development!
Perfekt! Pei ist eine hervorragende Lehrerin, die sowohl über fundierte linguistische Kenntnisse verfügt sowie über die besondere Gabe, anschauliche Geschichten zu einzelnen Schriftzeichen erzählen zu können.
Sie geht auf sehr angenehme Weise auf das individuelle Lerntempo und die jeweilige Tagesform ein, so dass man zu jeder Zeit mit Spaß aufs Neue ans Lernen geht.
Matthias is highly motivated. He's an impressive fast learner, especially regarding pronunciation. We always have a great time talking about history, culture, and the language itself during our classes. :)
Perfekt! Pei ist eine unglaubliche gute Lehrerin. Die didaktische Aufbereitung der Einheiten ist perfekt. Neben ihren Deutsch- und Englischkenntnissen, die auch einen direkten Sprachvergleich ermöglichen, hat Sie auch ein gutes Einfühlungsvermögen und viel Sinn für Humor, was das Lernen zu einer sehr schönen Erfahrung macht. Ich hoffe, ich kann noch viele Stunden von / mit ihr lernen!
Andreas is a hard-working and enthusiastic learner. He is not only interested in the language but also the culture and philosophy behind it. We always have a good time during the class, and I am looking forward to more fun with Andreas along the way of Chinese learning! :)
Perfekt! Learning with Pei is amazing! She perfectly designs the classes to the needs you have and is always flexible with times and the learning pace. Furthermore she is such a positive person - studying can’t be anything but fun with her! I’m so happy I found her and I am looking forward to all the Chinese to come.
金伯莉 stands out not only because she is such a passionate and hardworking student but also with her bubbly personality. It has been a pleasure to work with her. I am looking forward to more fun and adventures with her along the journey of Chinese learning!
Perfekt! Pei kommt einmal pro Woche zu uns ins Büro und unterrichtet uns zu dritt. Die Methoden, die sie nutzt, sorgen für ein schnelles Lernen und viel Spaß am Unterricht. Wir können Pei sehr empfehlen!
Karsten and his colleagues are eager learners, despite their busy schedules! It's been such a pleasure working with them. I would say that it is more than the Chinese classes that we have together but a cultural study! :) Looking forward to more of this in the future!
Perfekt! Pei is the best teacher you can imagine. She loves the language she is teaching and she is very inspiring because of that. She will involve you in the planning of the class so you can get exactly the lesson you would like to get. Her explanations are very helpful! I can only recommend Pei as a teacher. You won’t regret this :-)
Perfekt! Pei is a great teacher. Not only her patience, also her intuition are so helpful. I am looking forward to every lesson with her, characterized by varying design.
Working with Monika is such a pleasure! She is determined and regards the language learning a process full of fun. I am very impressed by how fast she progresses starting with zero Mandarin knowledge. I am even more looking forward to more adventures in Mandarin learning with her! :)
Perfekt! Pei is a terrific teacher. Her lessons are effective and motivating at the same time. It is a great pleasure to work with her！
Lien is a determined and hard-working student. She learns fast in class and studies hard during her own time. Every time I see her in our class, I am impressed by her progress. It has been a great pleasure to work with her and accompany her along the way of Chinese learning!
Perfekt! Very helpful and easy learning with Pei. Also she is very flexible.
Kevin already speaks fluent Chinese. He is a fast and enthusiastic learner. All I need to do is to broaden his vocabularies by having daily conversations with him. It's been a pleasure working with him!
Perfekt! Pei is a wonderful teacher. She pays attention to my knowledge and goals and even can work alongside the apps I use. Thanks a lot for helping me learn Chinese.
Michael is an enthusiastic and fast learner. He specifies what he needs to learn and focuses on the target. It's been a pleasure to be his Chinese teacher. I have no doubt that he will be able to express himself in fluent Chinese in the near future.
Pei helped me with my Chinese learning from January to June in 2015 in Singapore. She mainly helped me improve my listening and speaking. We practised speaking, and she showed me videos and Chinese songs to help me with the listening. Pei was patient and always came prepared. Too bad she moved to Germany, otherwise I would loved to continue learning Chinese from her.
I had some basic Chinese skills already, and Pei helped me a lot to improve my communication skills. That was very helpful because I have clients in China, and they were very happy when I talked to them in their own language :)
Pei is a great teacher. I started working with her after my Chinese beginners class to continue learning and improve my skills, and she has been incredibly patient and dedicated. She prepared super helpful learning materials for our lessons and even gave me first hand cultural advice when I was going to China for a business trip.
