Excellent! She worked with my daughter on tonguing techniques and using the metronome. She helped her learn new skills.

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I was born in China and finished my ninth grade there. The school is quite prestigious in terms of academic level. I then finished high school in the United States and earned my Bachelor Degree in Chemistry and Violin Performance at Oberlin College and Conservatory in Ohio. My fluency in both languages will make learning Mandarin much easier and more fun.

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I am native speaker in Chinese, and now live and work in Los Angeles. Before I came to American to earn my master degree from NYU, I had four years teaching experience as TA and instructor in shanghai. At that time, I found my passion for teaching.

My goal is to simplify Chinese study and let you learn it with less pain and struggle. I will make you fall in love with Chinese-learning, and I DO believe that interest is the best teacher. Plus, I teach Chinese online with Mandarin pronunciation which had received intense professional training (mandarin without any local accent).

Living and working in the US helps me understand language-learning is not only about grammar or vocabulary, but also at the Chinese way of thinking. Let me help you speak and think like a real Chinese.

About Yuan

Before I live and work in Los Angeles, I got my master degree from Tisch school of the arts in NYU. My international education background helps me understand language-learning need to under

Miss Ge is a very professional and passionate teacher. I had her Mandarin lesson online and she helped me to fall in love with language learning just like she has promised. To me, the most important thing of language learning is to trigger and maintain interest and she did it. I would highly recommend her to everyone.

Rae is a wonderful teacher. I have a couple learning disabilities and have had many different Chinese tutors. Rae is by far the best because she is incredibly patient, genuinely wants you to understand the material, and makes sure to go at your own pace. She wants you to understand what you are learning and wants to minimize the stresses of learning a new language. Rae is fantastic at making me less intimidated with learning Chinese by breaking down the grammar of the language and learning it step by step. Her mission is to help you learn and not frustrate you. She is incredibly patient, intelligent, kind, and most importantly she genuinely cares about her students. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Chinese.

I'm a shy guy so when I went in for my first lesson I was really scared but my teacher was really kind and five minutes in I had completely forgotten that I was scared, and I learned so much. I went from knowing a very basic introduction to being able to ask for something, and knowing more words and it would take me ages to list off everything I've learned. Amazing teacher!

Great Mandarin Chinese tutor, 100% recommended! It was very easy to get started, flexible and you become an effective communicator in a short period of time! From day 1 I started learning stuff that I could use in real life, within months I am now having full conversations in Chinese, because I was learning the language I needed and topics I would normally talk about. Classes were so enjoyable and worth it!

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 took about 6 months of Mandarin lessons with Connor, and myself and my Taiwanese family members all notice how far I’ve come. In just these months, I have come much closer than I could have expected to my goal of being able to understand basic Mandarin conversations. Connor personalized my lessons to focus on the Taiwanese variations spoken by my family. He is not only knowledgeable in language and culture, but it is also very apparent that he has learned how to teach. He is patient and moves at a pace that fits with my schedule as an adult learner. I absolutely recommend him!"

"I was taking Chinese at university level, but my professor was very fast paced and I didn't get much practice speaking. That's why I loved taking lessons with Zhenni! She's very thorough - correcting my grammar, tones or pronunciation whenever I make a mistake so that I don't develop bad habits. She also supplied a lot of additional insight into how modern people speak Chinese, so that I would sound more authentic and not just repeat lines I learned from a text book. Zhenni is also very personable and easy to talk to, which I found really helped me not be so self conscious when she would ask me to have a conversation in Chinese."
