What Makes a Panda Mandarin Teacher?
We are a Toronto-based company with North American values & ideals, where our teachers are trained to focus on the needs of students in the US and Canada. We hire teachers who have a passion for teaching Mandarin, understand how to engage children to learn the language, and treat each student as an individual. Our teachers are also fully bilingual, with relevant degrees/diplomas in teaching, early childhood education, and/or language learning.
Our team of teachers run programs that are highly interactive through storytelling, music, games, and art but also with a strong focus on practical applications of Mandarin. Our students and parents are well supported by our team, as well as through the modern content & tools used to help them keep engaged outside the classroom.
