Doug (Mandarin lessons with Grace J.)

Yuexin is a fantastic teacher. She is very good at teaching all things China, whether that's teaching mandarin or giving out helpful tips about China. Great teacher.

Nick (Mandarin lessons with Yuexin C.)

She focuses on practical learning and being able to speak and understand chinese you are likely to use on a daily basis. Patient with pronounciation correcting and adaptable to your level of learning.

She was patient as this was our first lesson with Lella for our 7-year old daughter and our daughter froze up and would barely participate.
