    you might be able to find a filipina who lived/worked in taiwan.

    full-time FDH positions are not open to mainlanders... so mandarin speakers are not very common

    Even a Filipina who has lived and worked in Taiwan is not likely to be fluent in Mandarin - just able to get by. I have several friends with Mandarin-speaking nannies, with degrees from western universities, that they pay several thousand US for each month. I have other friends who have been looking for Mandarin speaking helpers, with zero leads, for years. One found a part time local lady who spoke fluent Mandarin, but she made more money doing other things and quit.

    Hi, I notice you are based in mid-levels. Last month I ran into a lady playing with a 2.5-yr old girl at the zoo playground, and turns out she's her Mandarin teacher. We exchanged numbers, but I don't think I will use her service after all since we recently decided to move to Saikung. In case you're interested, her name is Patty Xu - 98021716

    Hi,

    I am looking for a Full time/Part Time Mandarin Tutor/Nanny/childminder job. The family who I am working for 3 years is moving back to the States in this Summer. If you or any of your friends are interested, please feel free to contact me for questions and info.

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    Have a nice day.

    Yvonne
