Monique was so kind and made me feel so comfortable. I am excited to keep learning. I could not have found a better teacher

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.

Firstly, I speak standard Mandarin Chinese from North Eastern China, which is the same kind of pronunciation found in professional teaching material and stipulated by the People Republic of China. Secondly, I have over ten years experience teaching second language to students of all ages and proficiency levels, which includes preparing students to take the HSK. Thirdly, I earned a bachelors degree and teaching certificate in teaching English, which has given me the pedological and speaking skills to explain Chinese grammar and culture to beginning level Chinese speakers.

Learning Chinese characters are key to improve practical Chinese. Why? You know, Chinese is so different from any other language in the world. For instance, its pronunciations (Pin Yin) are so diverse that it always makes learns headache in conversation or improving Chinese only by memorizing Pin Yin. However, all kinds of Chinese can use and understand same Chinese characters in live communication. thus, based on my teaching experience, I will guide you to really improve Chinese by focusing on Chinese characters while enjoying Chinese traditional culture and practicing a little bit skills of Chinese calligraphy. Trust you and me.

I lived in China for over 20 years and understand the challenges of learning Mandarin as an English speaker. I explain the mystic and wonder of the language and mindset. Over 5000 years of history is alive and well in the Chinese language and it's fascinating. My main focus is on pronunciation and tones, tones, tones. Without good pronunciation and sharp tones communication in Mandarin is challenged. Expect me to correct your pronunciation. You'll find my lessons to be full of interesting aspects and quirks of Chinese culture and language.

About Todd

I have a passion for Chinese language and culture. After living in China and Taiwan, I learned to speak and understand a range of Chinese accents. My accent is standard Mandarin as spoken in Harbin, which is considered to most proper. I read both Traditional and Simplified characters. My understa

"Wonderful instructor. We look forward to continuing lessons later this year. She was very professional and made my 15 year old daughter comfortable with learning Chinese. She tailored the lessons to fit her aptitude. I would highly recommend her. She also met us at the local community center which was very helpful logistically."

"I'm really enjoying my lessons with Yuexin. She's very patient and is able to answer all my questions. She's also happy to customize the lesson to suit my interests; for example, we took some time to go over voice lines in a video game that were in Chinese and then work on the pronunciation and pinyin for them.

The textbook and workbook she had me get have been helpful, and I've been supplementing by practicing on my own using Duolingo. I think the combination has been really effective for learning the language. Yuexin has been great for correcting my pronunciation and teaching me how native speakers would actually speak and write."

I am moving to china in a few days so I took a few lessons from Grace so that I would know enough to move out there with, even though I will be learning at college there. I feel more confident knowing even just a little bit of Chinese before I move out there."

"Lipeng is an amazing pianist and violinist artist herself, however she is an even more splendid teacher. She is so patient and encouraging with a adult student(I). Her technique and attention to music detail is amazing. She encourages relaxed recitals for students to gain confidence in a larger setting without pressure. my friends were impressed with my development and progress all along the classes because I had a great teacher! Would highly recommend!!!!"
