Patryna teaches in such a way that you do not need to ask the same questions over and over. She is very patient and gives you the understanding you need to be a successful Writer. Unlike others that I have worked with, Patryna teaches in a way that you feel loved and not like just any other client. I did not just gain another skill but a loved one. I would invite Patryna in my home anytime she in my area.

Grew up in China and graduated from one of the best universities in China. Learning Mandarin is more about learning Chinese culture than the words. Chinese is a very logical language and you will have a lot of fun learning with me.

About Chaowei

Before I came to New York, I taught English at a local training center in Shanghai,China. I started teaching Mandarin to a few Canadians and Americans when I was in university more than 10 years ago. And we still keep in touch now. Learning language is more about learning the culture. I am fascin

As an experienced Mandarin teacher, I look to break down each component of the language into its most simple parts, so that the student can best understand all aspects of, what can be, a very challenging language.

About Connor

Hello! I am a Mandarin teacher of many years, having taught in a variety of settings, from 1-on-1 tutoring, to immersion schools. As a Chinese-American, I have great tools in place to help English speakers best learn the challenging language of Mandarin Chinese. As someone who is bilingual, as well

Mr. Connor has been working with my children for four years. He is an amazing teacher who is very patient and kind to my children. He is teaching them Chinese, singing, drums and guitar. Unlike other teachers we've had in the past, Mr. Connor incorporates games and songs into all his lessons which makes language learning much more interesting for young kids. My children adore Mr. Connor and are always looking forward to working with him every lesson.
Matt
Connor does a great job at making the learning experience fun. He breaks down the lessons well, which really helps with learning the material. I would highly recommend for anyone learning to play a new instrument!
Conor
Connor is an extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible mandarin instructor. The progress I’ve made with him during my 1.5 years of classes has been astounding. The quality of learning which Connor provides is of the highest degree, and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a Chinese tutor.

I have been teaching for 24 years. My teaching style focuses on communication and exchange from the beginning with a solid foundation on the formal aspects too. I favor individual differences and the student's own pace of learning. Debate and discussion are an important part of my teaching style in the intermediate and advanced levels.
I favor a friendly atmosphere with meaningful exchange throughout my lessons.

I have a B.A. in English Language and Literature and my curriculum includes several subjects related to Spanish grammar, composition, phonetics and literature, so apart from being my native language (I am Cuban) I have the necessary academic kn

"My husband and I had a great experience taking beginning Chinese lessons with Monique. We didn't know a lick of Chinese, and now we feel pretty comfortable with basic communication. We're moving to Beijing next month, so Monique was great at tailoring our lessons to our specific needs (for instance, restaurant, airport, and "getting around" vocab). She's a great, patient teacher and is very flexible with scheduling."

"I am an adult beginner in Spanish and needed to learn the language quickly for some upcoming travel. Javier has done a wonderful job at making me feel comfortable with my pronunciation and I feel that I am progressing at a good pace. His lessons are educational and fun and his homework assignments are very worthwhile. I can recommend him for beginners all the way to advanced Spanish as it is his native language and his teaching methods are perfect for absorbing and remembering the idiosyncrasies as well as the general rules for the Spanish language in terms of grammar, structure and pronunciation. You will not find a more personable, effective or informed Spanish teacher."

"Kyoko has been an amazing Japanese teacher to my 8 year old daughter. Her lessons are customized to what the student wants or needs to learn. Most importantly she listens and gives great advice for improving your skills. Kyoko is a great teacher who truly cares about your progress. I’ve tried other teachers and my daughter and me like Kyoko the best by far. So much so, she has been my daughter’s teacher for over 3 years.

Kyoko is extremely knowledgeable and is authentically Japanese born and raised in Japan but has lived in the U.S. for awhile now and is natively fluent in English for parents who may not understand Japanese. Her communication and timeliness are amazing! I’d recommend her to any of my friends and family - and have."
