Cannot wait to go back. Patty is amazing- so patient and efficient and my daughter has not stopped talking about how much more she wants to learn.

Patty is a great teacher who takes pride in her work. She spent plenty of time making sure I understood the lessons, and made sure I was doing the homework and practicing between lessons.

To give a quick recommendation: My son started piano lessons with Patty a couple weeks ago and LOVES it! He’s 5 and is a very active little boy, but he sits still, listens and has really enjoyed it so far! Patty has been a great teacher

Teaching has always been my passion. I have been teaching Mandarin for 10 years at various Language Institutes, and taught at private schools in Michigan for total of 5 years. With corporate client experience, I also have been working as a Mandarin instructor in a language company. There are many adult students with different levels who are currently learning Chinese from me. My success stems from enthusiasm, self-motivation, patient, creativity and the ability to communicate with students from diverse backgrounds. It is my goal to combine my range of experience with my ability to make the learning easy and fun.

I've had a great experience so far. Yiju is patient, enthusiastic, and fun. Her lessons are easy to get into and the time flies by really fast. She's very engaging on cultural topics, illustrates a variety of ways to say something, and is generally very organized and punctual. She has been very accommodating to my requests and helping me learn in a way that works for me. Since I had my own study materials before I started lessons with her, she has worked with me to practice the material I studied already. I would definitely recommend her.
Alexandria
Wonderful instructor. We look forward to continuing lessons later this year. She was very professional and made my 15 year old daughter comfortable with learning Chinese. She tailored the lessons to fit her aptitude. I would highly recommend her. She also met us at the local community center which was very helpful logistically.

Five Stars! I haven't used AutoCAD for quite a few years. Valentina is an amazing teacher. After a few lessons, I feel very confident in my skills. She answered all of my questions and taught me new tips and tricks. Thank you Valentina, I appreciate all of your help.

Valentina is a wonderful teacher. She is dedicated, concise and driven. She creates a very friendly atmosphere of learning and is available to answer any questions. She assisted me with pronunciation, conjugations and knowledge to learn the aspects of Italian as a beginner. Bravo !!

I've been teaching French for six years and my students have gone on to improve their grade substantially. Within the first few lessons, you'll get a better understanding of the material learned in class or if you are a new beginner, you will be able to read and speak basic French. I use different grammar and reading books depending on your level and make you practice with speaking and written exercises to vary the learning process. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I would be thrilled to meet you!

"In the three months I started taking Vietnamese lessons from Mr. Chau, I have made a lot of progress, especially in my reading and speaking ability. Mr. Chau is an excellent teacher. He is very methodical in his teaching and meticulous in his preparation before each session. For example, for speaking lessons, the topics he chooses and the series of questions he asks during classes reflect clearly on the thought he has put into in his preparation before each class. I enjoy these practice sessions because I find them both challenging and rewarding. Similarly, the materials he uses for reading comprehension lessons are also very good and we usually end up having some very interesting discussions out of these lessons based on the materials he uses. I look forward to continuing my Vietnamese lessons with Mr. Chau in the coming months."

"Loudel is a natural teacher. She not only teaches in a way that is easy to understand and build on, but gives much needed insight into the historical aspect of how Tagalog has evolved in your first lesson. Her knowledge of how you can connect the grammatical rules of English and Spanish are also beneficial in helping make connections. In order to get the most from your lessons, immerse yourself in the resources she sends you ahead of your lesson. More importantly, relax and enjoy your session! You have chosen an excellent instructor."
