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.

Taylor really enjoyed her session with Ms Marie, she stated she felt inspired to do better. Looking forward to another lesson.
Lorraine R.
I've had the pleasure of working along side Marie as a colleague. I was able to witness first hand her compassionate nature and her dedication towards her students and towards teaching. She sets the bar high for her students but helps them along in a caring and patient manner so that they can achieve all their goals. She is knowledgeable and experienced in her subject matter and I have no doubt that she can help your child reach success.
Guerschom D.
I had Ms. Marie for French and she was one of my favourite teachers. The amount of patience that she had with some of my very troublesome classmates was very inspiring because I always wondered how was she able to keep her composure so well. Her teaching methods worked and she always taught in a manner in which you would have no choice but to learn

Mirian is very friendly! I had a great lesson with her and can't wait for more!
Donna Q.
Mirian is a great teacher! Super nice and funny. She takes the time to converse with you in Spanish without making you feel overwhelmed. She makes sure you're at the correct level and tailors lessons accordingly. I would definitely recommend Mirian if you wanted to learn Spanish in a welcoming environment.
Stacy Fidrych
I love my instructor - no problems with her at all. The issue is the audio quality. Maybe it's just my connection but it cuts out about 25% of the time making it very difficult to understand and follow along.

I grew up in an environment that required Japanese AND English, so I can sympathize with all of you who have a hard time learning the difficult language. After 14 years of studying Japanese at a language school, I have passed the highest leveled Japanese Language Proficiency Test and whizzed through the AP Japanese Language exam. Whatever your goal is, let's get there.

About Tyler

I am currently work at a tech company, but also teach on the side as I love teaching! My favorite pass times are cooking, driving, listening/playing music and exercising.

Solange is amazing as an instructor. As a native speaker she understands text book French as well as slang. She provides several options for ways to express a thought. She is easy to talk to and time passes so quickly. Definitely the best French teach I have had and I have had many.

He quickly gauged my skill level and adjusted the pace of his lessons accordingly.

He has provided a number of excellent online resources, some of which he is helping to develop. I am very pleased with the resources and the lessons."
