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.

"Susan is a wonderful French teacher both for adults and kids. We have had her as an in-home teacher for both over the past few years during the school year. She is very patient with the kids and keeps it fun for them, and also is a great conversationalist with the adults. I can’t recommend her enough. She is also versatile enough to teach German as well."

The lessons are tremendously fun, and she has given me numerous resources for additional study at my leisure. She is perfect for me. I’m 50, so anybody can learn a new language given the right circumstances. I highly recommend taking lessons!"

"Prajakta is probably one of the most dynamic professors
that I have had the privilege of knowing! Her ability to convey to me the Hindi language in a manner that I do not feel intimated means a great deal. As a matter of fact, her sense of humor allows me to make mistakes, recover, and have the confidence to learn more of the language. I will, no doubt, continue with my learning experience. What a pleasure!"

"Lin is an effective teacher who makes learning Mandarin easier and faster. In the beginning, she did a good job of inquiring about my experience and assessing my skill in order to best adjust the lessons to my level.

The lessons are professional and organized. As I personally started the lessons with some very basic foundation (can't really understand fast speech, sluggish to construct very simple sentences), the structure to the lessons makes the learning efficient. She helped me go over sentence grammatical structures, useful words for communication, and I pick up vocabulary as we progress. She also helps play some videos of people speaking Mandarin at a pace which is normally too fast for me to understand, but she's really good with helping break it down and giving tips to help my ear and brain pick up the meaning. The homework she assigns contains very useful exercises that help further solidify and apply what was covered in the lesson too.

Most of all, the lessons are made really fun with her enthusiasm for the language and for teaching. You can ask her anything and she is thorough in her explanations with several examples to help you better understand. Moreover, the lessons are designed such that while learning how to speak the language, you are also learning more about Chinese culture (famous Chinese pieces, opera, etc), which I have found to be a great way to be better immersed in my learning. I can feel myself improving quickly and would highly recommend Lin, as she is a clear, effective, and fun teacher."
