What Students Say about our Chinese Courses

I have been studying Chinese with Shelley for around a year now. Shelley is an excellent teacher who goes above and beyond for her students. Especially now with the disruption caused to COVID-19, Shelley has very effectively adjusted classes to a new online format temporarily. Her in-person classes are also fantastic - it is an absolute pleasure to learn Chinese with Shelley!read more

I have been studying Chinese on-off for a few years now, mostly self-taught, however since i have joined up with Shelley, my learning has gone to a new level. Shelley was immediately able to pull together all of my prior learning into order & provide me with a clear path for accelerated learning & achieving my goals. It has almost been a year since we commenced on this path & i haven't looked back. Shelley makes the lessons fun & enjoyable, whilst still being able to provide a disciplined & encouraging environment - this is incredibly rare. Our weekly lessons are something i always look forward to & then can't wait for the next! I would highly recommend Shelley's services for anyone wanting to learn Chinese, regardless of any level to commence from.read more

Shelley Tian is a wonderful teacher who is simply passionate about teaching Chinese. She has the rare ability to be able to challenge you on the detail of the Chinese language whilst allowing you to casually explore simple and concise ways of saying things. She tailors her lessons around your professional workplace and constantly guides you on how to conduct a decent and simple conversation in Chinese in your professional field.

I have been taking private Chinese lessons with Shelley for six months now. I’m always impressed by Shelley’s ability to identify gaps in my understanding and supply clear explanations. I have learnt much faster than I ever thought possible.Shelley is both extremely patient and methodical when teaching. Each lesson progressively exposes me to more vocabulary and grammar points in a natural way.Shelley is very professional. She is always well prepared and I appreciate her attentiveness and dedication to every detail of the lesson. She is also really warm and fun. Her enthusiasm is contagious and it makes me look forward to my Chinese lesson each week.Shelley makes great use of technology when appropriate. She shares notes from the lesson in Google sheets as well as providing printed material. We also do lessons online when I am unable to attend in person.谢谢 Shelley!read more

Fantastic learning experience. Shelley is a very dedicated professional, very knowledgeable and patient in her teaching. You can tell she has many years of experience by the way she listens and understands your questions and how she develops her explanations. Trust me, I ask many questions! ;)I have taken lessons with her for almost a year now and the journey has been very pleasant: I feel like my chinese level is improving at a level greater than my effort. Her classes allow a limited number of students only (around 10 max) and she also offers private lessons. She is very flexible with these private lessons and designs these based on your learning pace.Not to mention she is very kind! You definitely feel very comfortable around her and she makes you feel welcome.100% recommended, I would not go elsewhere.read more

Shelley is incredibly flexible and patient and designs her lessons based on your progression. As a full-time student who works part-time there are fluctuations in the time that I can spend on learning Chinese. Shelley has always been very accomodating in speeding-up and slowing-down according to the business of my life, while challenging and progressing my Chinese skills the whole time. As a result my Chinese learning experience has been smooth and very enjoyable. I highly recommend Shelley to anyone who wants to learn Chinese.read more

When I started studying with Shelley a year ago I was at a low-intermediate level and had a poor understanding of grammar and syntax. Now at HSK 4 Shelley has given me the confidence and ability to use Chinese in both my professional and personal life, I would definitely recommend her to any beginners and advanced students of Chinese looking for a serious improvement in all aspects of the language. 🙂read more

Shelley is a very good teacher that helps explain how to speak Mandarin in a clear and concise manner. Her classroom size is small to ensure that each student is well catered for and also given plenty of opportunities to participate and engage with other students to help improve communicative skills.Previously I have tried other language schools however they do not provide the detailed sentence structure and grammar that Shelley class is able to provide. I felt that I have learnt and significantly improved my Chinese skills over a short period of time.read more

She is always giving feedback which is very helpful. Lessons are challenging and very engaging. Highly recommend to anyone who is interested in learning or improving their Chinese!read more

I highly recommend Chinese for Professionals for anyone looking to learn Chinese at all level. Shelley is a very passionate, knowledgeable and experienced teacher. She really goes above and beyond to tailor lessons which better suit the student’s capability and learning style. I have been extremely busy at work but look forward to coming to Chinese lessons each time with Shelley. Shelley is very flexible and adaptable with her lessons and has always been able to cater for unavoidable changes. Shelley has a deep understanding and appreciation for Chinese and is able to effectively convey complex grammar and sentence structures in a way which people who grew up with English (and other languages) can understand. If you are considering learning Chinese, I would strongly suggest contacting Shelley before looking at other options.read more

Shelley is an excellent teacher who, even in group classes, is able to tailor her lessons to suit the needs of each individual student. She goes to great lengths to come to a complete understanding of each person's present level of Chinese proficiency, their motivations for learning Chinese and any time constraints that they are under - and matches her teaching accordingly.Shelley also maintains a perfect balance between, on the one hand, the basics and fundamentals (e.g. vocabulary and sentence structure) and, on the other hand, the more nuanced aspects of Chinese that enable its use at a higher level of technicality (such as within a business, legal or political context).There are few places where it can truly be said that the single point of emphasis is to help each individual realise their capabilities to the best possible extent. Chinese For Professionals is such a place.read more
