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.

thank you very much

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.

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.

Sam is great with my 10 year old daughter. He is easy going and makes the flute lessons fun and my daughter enjoys her weekly hour lesson. We let Sam know what our goals were and he has created a plan accordingly.

Sam can do both in-home and online lessons. The in-home lessons are great, no need to travel.

Overall Sam is a great teach and very affordable.

Ian is fantastic teacher. He was so patient with my toddler daughter. And when she became fuzzy during the class, Ian could be so creative to always come out with a way to calm her down and redirect her attention to other musical things. I would love him to be my daughter’s music teacher for as long as possible if I did not have to move.

Ian is very knowledgeable and is great in explaining theory and great in demonstrating so you can understand.

"Grace is fantastic. She speaks very clearly and works with you on each lesson at a very manageable pace. She is good at praising when you get things like pronunciation or tones correct, which is really helpful because they are difficult. She is also not afraid to stop you and have you repeat something if you botch it. I really enjoy my lessons."

"I am taking Mandarin lessons from Grace because I am adopting a child from China and want to have some basic communication skills. I have never been good at learning languages, and I was hesitant because I know Mandarin is one of the most difficult languages to learn. After just 3 lessons, I am learning and I love it! I have had so much fun with Grace! She is a fabulous teacher. She is patient, kind and personable. She presents the material so that it is understandable. I am actually learning and remembering what I learned. I originally planned to take 10 one-hour lessons so I have a good basic knowledge, but I am absolutely going to continue taking lessons with her when the 10th is done. The time I spend with Grace just flies by, and I look forward to our lessons. I am so thrilled that I found Grace, and relieved that she is able to present the material to me in a such fun and comprehensible way.

I chose to take lessons with Grace because she teaches people of all ages. I am 51 years old. When my child arrives home from China this year, he will be approximately 2 years old. I look forward to taking lessons in the future with my child and having Grace teach both of us. Learning about China and the language will help my child and me connect to each other and to his culture and homeland. Thank you, Grace, for helping me on my adoption journey and beyond!"
