I had the opportunity to work with Douglas a number of times during my tenure as a part-time instructor at SCORE Educational Center. What I noticed about him was that he related very well to the children he worked with - he was a very enthusiastic tutor of English and math! He was most generous with the "high fives" and praise, and he also knew how to get students back on track if their focus strayed. Also, I saw him work very well with the parents; he always took the time to patiently explain lesson plans and students' progress between sessions. I have known Douglas personally for many years. He was the one who encouraged me to work at SCORE Educational Center given my background in Education - I thank him for that because I enjoyed my time there very much while I was able to stay (unfortunately, I had to leave that position for a full-time job elsewhere). SCORE Educational Center is no longer in existence. Douglas currently works as an independent tutor, and given how long I've seen clients stick with him, I have no doubt that they are enjoying the same level of attention and enthusiasm he provided at SCORE. When he speaks about the progress of independent clients and how they respond to him, it is with enthusiasm and a glowing smile. If you are looking for a tutor that is intelligent, dedicated, enthusiastic, and simply great with kids and parents, then Douglas is your man.

Rae is a wonderful teacher. I have a couple learning disabilities and have had many different Chinese tutors. Rae is by far the best because she is incredibly patient, genuinely wants you to understand the material, and makes sure to go at your own pace. She wants you to understand what you are learning and wants to minimize the stresses of learning a new language. Rae is fantastic at making me less intimidated with learning Chinese by breaking down the grammar of the language and learning it step by step. Her mission is to help you learn and not frustrate you. She is incredibly patient, intelligent, kind, and most importantly she genuinely cares about her students. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Chinese.

My boy has really enjoyed the lessons with Rae so far. She is helping him with his pronunciation as well as learning basic vocabulary and handwriting.
