Hi everybody. My name is Nicholas and I am a Mandarin Teacher for Strommen.
I studied Mandarin at St. Olaf College for 4 years and studied abroad in Shanghai studying Mandarin at the East China Normal University. After graduating, I moved to China to improve my language. While in China, I was translating at the Beijing Olympics, hosting TV shows, and teaching English. I had the time of my life and my Mandarin is at a native level in all areas including reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
I have 5 years teaching experience in China, Singapore, and Hong Kong. I taught students ranging in levels from beginner to advanced and ranging in age from children to adults. As a teacher, I create and execute effective and interesting lessons that are reflective of my personality. With each of my students, there has been significant improvement in all areas of the language and most importantly in students' confidence with the language.
I think Mandarin is one of the most fun languages to know and it feels good to use the language when I travel to Asia, when I order a tea in LA Chinatown, and when I keep in touch with my Chinese friends.
Video & Sample Lectures:
"Nicholas Anderson has a very relaxed approach to teaching Chinese, but he is thorough and encouraging and is teaching the language in a way I didn't expect. And his way which is very conversational is really providing a great base. I would encourage anyone to sign up for a class with him."
