Enni might be the best language instructor I’ve ever had. Her preparation is thorough and thoughtful, and surprisingly personalized.

She also challenges me with real, interesting conversation, even though I’m a total beginner.

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.

I am bilingual being able to read traditional Chinese and have been back and forth from Taiwan and the USA for a few years. I like to teach other cultures and giving meaning behind the letters of the Chinese characters and picture them to help students recognizing the words easier. When I was young I had trouble learning English because I had to teach myself in school, so I want to make it easier for those people who are struggling the same thing to learn Chinese that is traditional. I kept saying traditional and not simplified because it does look a lot cooler than simplified! Definitely not being biased!

With the current COVID-19 virus crisis, I have been shifting all my students to online classes. Check out my pictures to see my online classroom set up, or feel free to send me a message if you have questions! :)

Mandarin is a musical language that's quickly taking over the world, you'll have lots of fun learning this language.

I was born and raised in Singapore, and am fluent in both English and Mandarin. I can read, write and speak at a bilingual, native proficiency in English and professional proficiency in Mandarin.

I'll teach you depending on your level and age. For kids, I use fun, interactive storytelling. For the adults, I'll dive into concepts like the origins of the language, nuances of the intonations, all the while teaching you vocabulary and sentence structure. I'll also adjust my lessons based on your feedback, your learning style and your goals!

"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!!!"

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!!!!"

She will accommodate almost any request and really takes the time to know you and your learning style. She will sometimes check up on you in between classes.
