What is the necessary quality for a mandarin teacher?

Mandarin teacher is a good job for lots of native Chinese speakers in the current times.

Because right now, there are more and more foreigners come to China for business, study or living. In 2011, there are over 200,000 foreigners in China, among them, over 20,000 UA people, 15,000 French and 15,000 German people living in Shanghai.
And the number is increasing year by year.
But what is the necessary quality for an excellent mandarin teacher?
I do the mandarin teacher over 10 years and I always heard that the foreigner students say, I need a young and beautiful Mandarin teacher.
So, what is the real meaning of young and beautiful?
The potential meaning of the requirement is:
Experience: Mandarin teacher must have the teaching experience. The difference between the experience teacher and non-experience teacher is: the experience mandarin teacher can teach you 5 topics and over 20 new words in 1 hour, the non-experience teacher maybe can not teach you how to pronounce the initials and finals after 2 weeks……So, the experience is very important to the mandarin teacher.
Professional: Mandarin teacher is not an easy job, there are lots of skills on this work. So, professional is absolutely necessary.
Easy going: mandarin teacher has to do lots of 1 on 1 mandarin training, so, they have to be an easy going people to make the study environment happy and relax.
Knowledgeable: When you are a mandarin teacher, foreigners will think you know everything of China and they hope to get the most knowledge from you. Facing the foreigners’ questions, if mandarin teacher always say, I do not know, then the teacher will make the students disappointment…..
So, the teacher must knowledgeable, especially on the China issue….
International: Mandarin teacher have to meet the students from all of the world everyday, so, they must know different country has different cultural, they must know how to live and work together with the people from all of the world, in this way, they are international people.
Full of energy: As a mandarin teacher, maybe someday you have to travel 5 different places to teach 5 company’s students or even more, because right now, people become more and more busy and they hope to have the flexible study time and tailed made mandarin lesson, and sometimes, they want to study at their home, office etc. So, the teacher must have good heath and energy to travel to different place to do the teaching job……
The following are some teacher’s CVs who can match the above statuses.

1. Chinese teacher in Sichuan Normal University 2001-2003
I accumulated abundant teaching experience when I studied in the University. As a student majoring in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language; our teacher arranged lots of internship opportunities for us. So from Grade 1 at my university, I have been a Chinese Tutor to many different foreign students and helped some of them for the HSK.
Our University had a Teaching Chinese as Foreign Language Centre, and there were lots of foreign students studying Chinese at our University, including Nepalese, Japanese and Korean students.
When I had gained some professional knowledge in teaching Chinese, my professor had arranged for me to teach the Basic Chinese Course to the Nepal students. There were 60 Nepal students in each class and they did not have any Chinese language Foundation. They were just trying to gain some Chinese language foundation and then continue with their major studying in some Medical Universities. Facing so many “0-foundation” students, I was able to use my English, pictures, and gestures to support my teaching. Through such a procedure, I gained the experience to teach 0-foundation students.
