Krista was great for my 8 year old daughter who showed a desire to learn sign language. She immediately showed me her name spelled out in sign language. Great job Krista!

Krista's professionalism and personal attention to detail shined through as I learned American Sign Language. She has a deep love for the language and provides individual personal attention to make sure you learn the most during each lesson while having a lot of fun. I would recommend her whether you have a child wanting or needing to learn or for yourself as a beginner, intermediate or advanced language learner in ASL. Thank you Krista for a great experience!

A great Teacher! Her lesson plans are more in depth than any class I’ve had in the past. Along with basic Mandarin I’m learning the cultural exchange which improves my understanding of the language. She is also very punctual and reliable which is something I look for since I’m a very busy person. CiSong is a nice and confronting person which makes practicing speaking Mandarin less stressful. I definitely recommend CiSong as a teacher and I think she works well with all age groups.

Grace J.

Woonsocket, RI

About Grace

An experienced, patient, sweet and funny Chinese tutor to all levels and ages, I have been teaching and tutoring Chinese language over 10 years. I am originally from China, a native Mandarin Chinese speaker with a master degree.
I studied in a law school, got my master degree and lawyer license, also passed the Mandarin Proficiency Test, achieved the College Teacher Certificate and worked in a college to teach law and culture related subjects when I was in China.
After came to America, I had taught in a university, and a language workshop for children. At present, I teach Chinese in a summ
er camp of a very good private school. So you see, my students are from toddlers to adults. One parent praised me that I am a great story teller.
I can help students from primary to college improve their listening, speaking, reading, and writing ability, and achieve a high score in their final Chinese test.
I can help students prepare for the AP Chinese Language and Culture Exam.
I can help worked people have a good understanding of this language.
I can tailor customized lessons to satisfy students’ specific requirements and levels, such as conversational Chinese, retail field Chinese, systematically beginner’s Chinese, etc…
I can teach people Business Chinese as well since I had the law background knowledge from China.
What book series I use the most is to teach high school, college students, and adults Integrated Chinese series.
What I like the most is to teach children because my personality is very active, and I like kids. I like to sing and dance (maybe it shouldn't be called dance, it is just like moving around). I can sing lots of Chinese nursery rhymes.
A committed professional to my work with a sincere, enthusiastic, easygoing, down to earth personality, I like teaching, that students improve day by day is my biggest happiness. You will have a happy time to learn Chinese very well if choosing me as your tutor.

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 only had 1 lesson with Grace and I gave it 2 stars because I think it could have been better (she could have placed more effort into creating an actual lesson plan). I'm an ABC and grew up speaking Mandarin at home, but was looking to learn to read and recognize characters. We spoke Chinese the entire lesson and just reviewed the Integrated Chinese Vol 1 Part 2 textbook glossary from A-C. We just went over each word, which I did not find useful because I can just do with my Chinese friends or parents. Her only homework to me was that if this was too slow, I could read through the rest of the glossary to speed it up next time. I decided not to continue because I was afraid the next lessons would just be going through the glossary word by word. We lost 10 minutes because the TakeLessons video conferencing wasn't working, despite the fact that both of us had checked beforehand and during on the test environment (she could hear/see me, but I couldn't see/hear her). Even then, we went over five minutes to make up for it but it was frustrating to have a shortened lesson because of technical difficulties. Grace was nice, but I just didn't learn anything.

I have an English speaking 2nd grader who has been working with Grace for 4 weeks now. Carson is very comfortable in class with Grace. He is doing well. She even recommended a text book that I was completely unaware of. We have lived in China for the last 6 months and are now back in USA working with Grace to improve his basis. Carson 1st Lanuage is English. She is very patient.

I've been working with Timothy for 4 years working on accent reduction, Shakespeare acting, and cold reading. My experience with our sessions has helped me to focus on what was more important to work on and having Timothy honest and respectable approach will keep you satisfied to continue to work together.

Tim is an inspiring and (in the right way) challenging teacher, who drives his students to accomplish more than they thought possible by means of precise instruction and judicious criticism. There is no doubt: Tim gets results.

Accent Reduction · In studio
I took Voice and Speech classes with Timothy and I am really thankful for everything!! I had a really thick European accent, which I thought I would never be able to get rid of. He worked with me every day, very patiently, until I was able to speak confidently and as if I was born in America. There's no better feeling than hearing people say "You sound as if you were born here". Not only did he help me with my speech, as well as acting!! (genious of Shakespeare's interpretation!!) but through our work, he got to know me better and helped me become a better person and encouraged me in many things in life.

Aside from the obvious qualification of speaking both English and Spanish, Gabriela has both a drive to help others learn and the understanding that a new language takes time, patience, and practice. She has been instrumental in keeping my Spanish from falling apart, and actively pushes me to expand my knowledge of the language.

Gabriela has been a friend for the past several years and thanks to her, I have been able to practice my written and conversational Spanish skills with her. She is very kind and outgoing, and makes learning fun. She can also talk about many different topics and can tell you everything about Venezuelan culture. My Spanish has greatly improved with her help, and I highly recommend her.
