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!!!

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!

Excellent first lesson! Ying is very patient and also very good at explaining difficult concepts!
Marilyn
It was fun, and Ying was patient and willing to customize the lesson based on my experience with Mandarin and my interests.
Jill
Ting is very easy to work with. My reason for getting a tutor is primarily for verbal practice. However I’ve found Ying to be great at explaining the formatting of the Mandarin sentence structure.

I’m a Chinese native speaker from China,the town is called Zhongshan,near HK and Macau. So for sure, Mandarin and Cantonese are my fluent languages.
I have been a teacher for almost 30 years,mainly of history and languages.Now I’m in the US, specialized in teaching Chinese as a foreign language. That’s why I’m here.
Practice makes perfect, means patience training is a cruel key for learners,kids,adults,tourists,businessmen…
Lively activities are always present in my classes:cards, tongue twisters, nursery rhymes,riddles,charades,origami,kiligami,ancient and modern China, history and culture, and so forth.

She is very friendly and understanding. If something comes up and I need to postpone a lesson or even cancel, she is always willing to accommodate. She is very fun to talk and I consider her a friend as much as a teacher."
