Grew up in America (born in Taiwan) for over 13 years and native speaker of both English and Mandardin Chinese.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

Mandarin can be really challenging for most people. By using logic and the similarities with your native language, I can make it way easier for you to understand the grammar and use the language.
As a native Mandarin speaker, you'll have a great environment and full knowledge of the language from me.

About Sonia

I'm enthusiastic about teaching and sharing different culture to my students. Growing up in Asian culture makes me capable of telling the difference between western and eastern life styles. With more than 13 years of teaching experience, I have very solid teaching background and discover the easies

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

"Sunho tailored the class well and prepared a lot of good material. I'm terrible at pronunciation and pretty nervous about it, but she was very helpful/patient and made me get lots of practice in. It was really helpful and a great first class, and I'm looking forward to my next one! Thank you so much!"
