I’m a passionate, funny, and patient teacher. In my class, students can learn with fun.

My classes are creative and also cover new content from daily life. I teach based on student’s needs and goals.

Currently, I’m offering Oral Chinese, Conversational Chinese, Business Chinese, Travel Chinese, and also tutoring service.

No matter what level of your Chinese is, how old you are, and what is your native language, in a proper way, you can definitely speak another language very well.

Zhao Yang is the perfect teacher. She is attentative, patient, thorough, encouraging, and extremely informative. I am so glad that I chose to learn from her. She assessed my knowledge of Mandarin in the very first lesson.

The lessons are tailored to my interests and learning style. Not every teacher has the ability to teach in a way that caters to an individual's learning needs and abilities. Having this ability makes Zhao Yang (feichang hao!) great! Each session, she reviews what was taught in the previous lesson and homework given. She also gives me a game plan on what I should practice as well as tools that I'll need to help me practice. I feel more and more confident after each lesson. I really appreciate Zhao Yang!!!
Nathan G.
Zhao is an excellent teacher. She is patient and really understands how to present the material in a way that is easy to learn. I highly recommend!
Stephanie
Evgeniya is an amazing Russian teacher! I am an English speaker, and I live in a place where Russian is widely spoken. I have tried a few times to learn Russian, and this is the first time that I am optimistic that I will progress in learning to be more conversational. I would recommend this class to anyone!

"I've been teaching Chinese for 15 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Chinese culture, study abroad in Asia, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!

"Guifang is a fantastic Mandarin teacher who has helped me improve my listening, speaking, reading, and writing abilities. While I have had some experience with learning Mandarin before, Guifang was able to help me pick up right where I left off.

Her lessons are thoughtful and she is always able to clearly and patiently help me when I have trouble understanding vocabulary, grammar, or other concepts.

I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning Chinese!"
