I majored in Mandarin Chinese at Rutgers University and also studied Chinese at Donghai University in Taiwan. I have excellent pronunciation, and can help you also master Mandarin pronunciation, as well as grammar, sentence structure, reading and writing, etc. Chinese is an amazing yet very difficult language. Let me help you build a great foundation for becoming fluent and expressing yourself in Chinese!

Even it was my first lesson I can feel the progress and I am confident about achieving my goal. Thanks Ian!!
Xiaoqi
Ian is fantastic teacher. He was so patient with my toddler daughter. And when she became fuzzy during the class, Ian could be so creative to always come out with a way to calm her down and redirect her attention to other musical things. I would love him to be my daughter’s music teacher for as long as possible if I did not have to move.

Ian is very knowledgeable and is great in explaining theory and great in demonstrating so you can understand.

A very good first lesson. We went over breathing exercises and scales. Also had time for Amy to critique my speaking style through a portion of a speech I will be giving in a month. Time well-spent.

She briefly went over the next lesson plan and gave me a little homework to do as well.

I got a lot out of this lesson and I can see how this will help me accomplish my goal of being a better public speaker and having a more controlled and stronger voice.

Looking forward to future lessons.

Amy is absolutely incredible. She showed keen interest in my concerns and challenges. She listened and knew exactly what I needed to do to get to where I want to be. She makes it easy for me to understand and she is truly a great coach. I can’t wait to see her again.

So hello!! I’m Alyssa, and apparently, I’m your new teacher haha... Anyways my mother is Brazilian and I lived in Brazil for 3 years (so I would say it’s practically in my blood)! My lessons will be interactive and fun, but Portuguese isn’t the easiest (also not the hardest don’t be scared lol) so saddle up for an adventure of learning a new language! Don’t forget that you are capable of learning, you just need a little push sometimes! All students should feel welcome and will go in their own pace, learning is so diverse and will help you grow. Don’t be shy and let’s learn some Portuguese !
