Grace is very patient and knowledgeable. I am learning how to read, write, speak and understand the language and with her teaching skills I’m surprised at how fast I’m learning it. Would definitely recommend her.

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!

I Majored in Creative Writing in College and continue to practice it every day. It's not necessarily a subject that can be "Mastered" (in my opinion), as creativity is an infinite and uncapped flow. Anyone can write from childhood to their deathbed. It the purest form of expression and it's my first love. I use it while writing songs for performing artists in Los Angeles, but that's only one of many doors that an understanding of creative writing can open!

About Amy

I signed my first publishing deal in Los Angeles in 2004 and spent three years studying music at the Biola Conservatory of Music.

"Colin's vast knowledge in so many subjects allows him to find unique approaches to teach and tutor. He knows the material so well that he is always able to find ways in which to break down the process of understanding the material. Colin will also breakaway from the point at hand if he feels that there might be some basic knowledge that I might not be aware of, but will contribute to my understanding. He also provided me with techniques that have helped me restructure the way I learn. Overall, a great instructor that has helped me come a long way in my ability to learn."

Any sport can be turned into a math practice game - you just need to find a way to sneak it in without letting your child know you're trying to promote some math time. Below are some ideas to get …
