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!

Come learn mandarin with me! My lessons will begin with teaching the basics and building a strong foundation and from there, we will grow your vocabulary piggy bank. I will be using sources from Chinese pop culture like music and dramas as well as using Chinese social media to learn Chinese slang. We will look at history, culture, and more to help inspire and motivate. Even though I have spoken mandarin all my life, I know for a fact that Chinese isn't easy and, with my help, I can help you overcome the obstacles of Chinese. Together we will approach learning mandarin in a fun and new way.

Bonnie really knows her stuff. Reading patterns is hard for a first timer and she goes through the patterns well. She does well teaching online and makes it easy to follow.
Susan
Bonnie is a great resource for knitting help! She's knowledgeable and patient. We did have a few tech issues, but she gave me extra time, which was above and beyond, since the issues mostly were from my end. I do have to say though, that a zoom lesson doesn't compare to being together in person, but it's still a good option when that isn't available.
Christine
Bonnie is very nice and made me feel comfortable on my first lesson with her. So glad I came across these private lessons online!

"Oh geez! I've completely forgotten to write this for months now!

I've had Miss Sonia as a mandarin teacher since last August. She's incredibly patient and will do a lot of work on her own end to find useful materials for her pupils to help them grasp certain concepts.

I have a tendency to overload myself with work, school, and life duties, leaving not much time to study as I would like, and she's been very patient in that regard. Often incorporating "review" days that do, in fact, review key concepts, but always branch out into other concepts, leading to increased comprehension through repetition as well as further learning.

As we all know, actually learning a language requires a LOT of work and effort to step out of comfort zones, and my big problem is simply learning time management. Once I get that down, I'm positive I could advance quickly with her tutelage.

I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to understand the language and culture surrounding it. :D"

"Guifang is a great instructor! She makes learning the language fun. She is very easy to like, makes sure the kid understands by quizzing him/her and encourages them to do more.
I will absolutely recommend her for your kid, I know mine is happy and enjoys learning a new, difficult language!"
