About Zhao Yang

Hi! 你好!Привет!

My name is Evgeniya (Zhao Yang)!

I am multilingual and I specialize in tutoring Mandarin Chinese, Russian and ESL.

You have a genuine interest in learning Mandarin or Russian, you would love to explore the language, to learn more about the culture, people, history...

But you are struggling with learning Russian/ Mandarin Chinese on your own. You need a guide who will help you and step by step will go with you toward your goals, support you in your language learning journey. You are most likely looking for the right course/ program/ teacher for you or your kid and don't know what to choose, I know it's so overwhelming! Don't wonder around for too long, make a decision and go for your dream.

About me

I have five years of experience with one-on-one online teaching as well as teaching in a classroom setti

ng. I have taught Mandarin Chinese to students aged 6 -18 at a Chinese Language Specialty School in Moscow and to sophomore, junior students, adults (I had a student who was 78 years old learning Chinese), I also have experience working with clients from diverse backgrounds within the business world (Tech companies, fashion industry, Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine Center and more). I prepare my students for each level of Chinese proficiency qualifications (YCT, HSK).

I am Russian and I teach Russian as well. I started teaching Russian 3 years ago, I absolutely enjoy the process of sharing my knowledge with students. Russian is such a beautiful language with a great history. I truly admire people who decided to learn Russian, I do my best to share my passion for the language with my clients.

I believe that when you learn a new language, you see the world through that language. Learning a language is not only about the language, it involves human communication, a
sharing of ideas, culture, travelling, history, arts, personal and professional development. So my lessons always include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students or any other topic the learner interested in.

At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. In practice I utilize interactive teaching methods and activities to motivate students to learn and communicate in a foreign language. I always use visual aids, such as software tools or videos and make students feel that learning a foreign language is fun and interesting.

I am happy that my passion for learning foreign languages became my profession. Teaching foreign languages for me is a Never-Ending Professional Development Journey. It’s a profession that allows me to be creative, work with a variety of different people, travel all over the world and inspire students not only academically but personally as well.

I'm a shy guy so when I went in for my first lesson I was really scared but my teacher was really kind and five minutes in I had completely forgotten that I was scared, and I learned so much. I went from knowing a very basic introduction to being able to ask for something, and knowing more words and it would take me ages to list off everything I've learned. Amazing teacher!

Great Mandarin Chinese tutor, 100% recommended! It was very easy to get started, flexible and you become an effective communicator in a short period of time! From day 1 I started learning stuff that I could use in real life, within months I am now having full conversations in Chinese, because I was learning the language I needed and topics I would normally talk about. Classes were so enjoyable and worth it!

I am a native Chinese speaker. I can speak five languages. I have years of languages (Chinese & English) teaching experience. I am certified to teach in public schools in China. I believe interaction and immersion are effective approaches to learn a new language. Learning a new language with a native speaker is ten times efficient than learning from language apps. Lessons are customized. Communicative language and Chinese culture would be prioritized while making lesson plans. To learn a new language, it's not simply about the language itself. The more you know about the culture, the better you appreciate the language.

About Guifang

I have 10 years of language teaching experience. I have learned eight languages and dialects over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese in 2009 and I founded my first summer camp in China in 2010. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

Interest is the best teacher. When I taught non-native Chinese

speakers (in China, South Korea and the U.S) Chinese, it seemed it stimulated their curiosity and interest to learn Chinese when cultural elements were introduced--such as characters' origin and visualization, historical contexts and cultural traditions. I hope that approach can also bring you an enjoyable experience learning a new language!

To help you be able to use Chinese, our language learning is mainly through interactive and communicative approaches. Talk! Talk! Talk! Please don't be shy. It's okay to make mistakes. Learning from mistakes is also a very effective way to learn a new language. We can make more contextualized dialogues based on whatever textbook you are using now. Or we can produce functional conversation based on everyday topics that you are interested. Lesson plans are customized and they can be flexible.

Ready to get on the boat and sail on the sea of Chinese? :)

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 easiest way of learning a new language by logic and constant practice.
I enjoy creating different situations and encouraging students to think and talk. I'm sure you'll have fun and find it interesting to dig deeper more about the language and culture.

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

Grew up in China and graduated from one of the best universities in China. Learning Mandarin is more about learning Chinese culture than the words. Chinese is a very logical language and you will have a lot of fun learning with me.

About Chaowei

Before I came to New York, I taught English at a local training center in Shanghai,China.

I started teaching Mandarin to a few Canadians and Americans when I was in university more than 10 years ago. And we still keep in touch now. Learning language is more about learning the culture. I am fascinated by the differences and similarities between Chinese culture and American Culture. And discovering those differences or similarities will create a big curiosity which will be very beneficial and effective when you learn the language.

In fact, many people don't know or never notice that Chinese is a very logical language and full of Chinese traditional wisdom. Even you don't agree China is becoming more and and more influential in the world, learning some Chinese culture and oriental philosophy will be an interesting journey.

You will hav

e a lot of fun learning Chinese with me!

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I was born in China and finished my ninth grade there. The school is quite prestigious in terms of academic level. I then finished high school in the United States and earned my Bachelor Degree in Chemistry and Violin Performance at Oberlin College and Conservatory in Ohio. My fluency in both languages will make learning Mandarin much easier and more fun.

About Jerry (Zheyang)

Hello! I am Jerry Xiong. I just graduated from Oberlin College and Conservatory with Bachelor Degrees in violin performance and chemistry. Currently, I am studying violin performance at USC Thornton School of Music.

Having been the concertmaster of both Oberlin Orchestra and the Colorado College Summer Music Festival Orchestra, I believe that classical music has always been a passion for me. Recent awards include winner of New Hampshire Philharmonic Orchestra Concerto Competition of 2014, Winner of Oberlin Conservatory Concerto Competition of 2017-18, and the semi-finalist of Ann and Charles Eisemann International Young Artist Competition of 2018. This year, I have been selected as one of the four concertmasters of the Thornton Symphony.

I believe that my experience and my passion for music will be able to help both improve one's techni

que as well as staying passionate about music. Having met numerous world's greatest violin pedagogues, being able to share my music with you is a treat for both you and me.

For my potential student who would like to learn Chinese, my fluency in both languages will be able to help you learn the language with fun and ease. Learning Chinese is not just learning a language, one will be able to feel the Chinese culture and the beauty of this language.

I am a native speaker who is fully bilingual. Take lessons with me to learn how to flirt, order at a restaurant, slang, and impress Chinese and non-Chinese people. I'll teach you wisdom from the culture. I'll also introduce you to Chinese humor.

About Angela

Dear future student,
Did you ever wish you could say more than nihaoma?
Does ni hao kai lan make you wish you could be fluent in Mandarin?
If so, let me know if you want to get started today in the basics of Mandarin.
Not only will you impress your mother, but you could impress your waiter and eventually tell jokes in Mandarin.
What are you waiting for?
Kuai xue ba!
