Li Li Mandarin tutor
Li Li

Li Li is familiar with all Mandarin exams ranging from GCSE and A-Levels to IB and the new HSK. One thing she prides herself on is creating her own learning materials and finding resources that match individual students’ interests so they have the best possible sources to learn from for their specific needs.

“I highly recommend Li Li as a Chinese tutor. I have been studying under her guidance for 4 months and during this time my Chinese ability has improved noticeably. She explains the meaning of new Chinese words and characters clearly and provides clear context about how they should be used in sentences.”

Cathy Mandarin tutor

Cathy is a native Mandarin speaker from Beijing with 20 years’ experience in teaching Mandarin. Due to her institutional teaching background, Cathy’s class is very organised and structured, consisting equally of listening, speaking, reading and writing so that students develop all four skills simultaneously. 

“Me and my mum have been working with Cathy for a while now and have really enjoyed her teaching style and found the classes to be very engaging and stimulating. Although we are at different levels, Cathy has managed to cater for both our need within our joint tutorial classes. She has helped us both improve our speaking as well as writing abilities in Chinese.”

Frequently Asked Questions

We have been experts in the online language tutoring experience for many years, and were delivering online one-to-one and small group lessons long before the pandemic put a stop to in-person classes.


We recognise that some students have doubts about learning with an online Mandarin tutor, but with such glowing feedback and most saying they prefer taking the classes from the comfort of their own home, we are confident that your learning journey will be nothing but positive. And fun!


Having said that, we do make it possible to learn Mandarin face-to-face, offering in–person lessons in London on a one-to-one basis only.

This will depend on various things, from how long you are spending with your Mandarin tutor and the amount of homework you can manage each week, to your natural ability to absorb and retain new information and your general dedication.


Mandarin is considered one of the world’s most challenging languages to learn, with over 80,000 Chinese characters. But with sufficient practice and persistence, and with a Mandarin tutor who makes the whole learning process fun, you’re sure to enjoy the challenge. And of course, the more difficult the challenge, the greater the feeling of accomplishment when you master it! 

Homework is very important when learning any language, so you will definitely need to allow time for it each week.


Homework is beneficial in many ways, from giving you the chance to review what you’ve learnt, to expanding your knowledge and helping you develop a deeper understanding of the various aspects of the language you’re learning.


Through regular homework, you will find you will learn Mandarin faster. So be sure to allow at least 90 minutes per week for homework and Mandarin vocabulary revision.

Whilst conversation is an important part of your Mandarin lessons, there is so much more to learning a foreign language than mastering the art of dialogue. Your Mandarin tutor wouldn’t be doing their job properly if they didn’t spend time teaching you how to read and write as well as converse.


Developing grammar skills is essential. They are the building blocks of any language, and necessary for us to convey what we want to say properly. And in any case, there is every chance that at some point you are going to need to read or write something, especially if you are learning for business or travel.

We provide a variety of services, from GCSE and A Level online tuition to revision camps, and from adult to corporate tuition. We also offer taster classes and intensive courses.

You can contact us for a tailored quotation to suit your specific needs.
