会说中文吗?I painstakingly studied every day while living in Shanghai, and after three years I was able to pass the HSK4. I love the strange tones, the inflections, the writing, the reading, all of it. I have plenty of materials to help students study each character and put together the strange grammar.

Mastering the fundamentals is essential to language learning. I focus on building a strong foundation of accurate sounds and tones, using familiar examples to make connections stick. Step by step, we cover everyday essentials, including numbers, colors, greetings, and phrases and expressions that will help you feel confident in Chinese-speaking environments.

Amazing !
Agnes
My 4.5 year old daughter had her first piano lesson with Jingci. I had learned how to play piano when I was a kid, so I could tell Jingci knows how to teach the basic foundation very well. She's firm yet patient and got my daughter to follow her instructions even though her attention span isn't that great at her age.

"We feel very lucky to have found Grace. She is very patient and obviously has a genuine concern for her students. Ally looks forward to her lesson time and we hope she will begin practicing learned concepts daily. The summer may afford more time to focus on Mandarin."

"Grace has been a phenomenal instructor for my 9th grade daughter. Working twice a week with her online, my daughter is enjoying her lessons and truly learning! From the start Grace made sure she was on the same page with my daughters school as far as cirriculum, expectations and milestones to be met. Although we were hesitant at first thinking online instruction would feel “robotic” like, Grace is anything but! My daughter says she is warm and friendly. They interact as sny student & teacher would exchanging pleasantries about their days. Grace humanizes the experience which is so important when taking lessons online. We are very pleased with Grace and my daughter is always looking forward to her next lesson!!"
