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.

Julia was very organized and well informed about chemistry. She was so much help. I would definitely use her again.
Oleg
Great help to our 9y.o., who is exploring math. Clear explanation, additional materials, and a nice memo after each lesson. Thank you! Will do again!
Kate
Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

He also has a good knowledge of the language apart from just being fluent, and could answer any question I had. I definitely recommend him."

"Excellent first class. Mirian was prepared. She shared her screen and a power point presentation, which was very informative and useful. She was seemingly very relaxed. Her disposition was friendly, yet professional. Smiles and laughter was naturally integrated into the session. Additionally, Mirian appears to be really structured. As a result of the aforementioned sentences, I plan to schedule additional classes with her. To my surprise, I was speaking a little Spanish with her during the first class, as a result of her thoroughness and my interest of course. BONUS: If you are learning a language, the tutor / teacher should encourage you (the student) to speak the language you’re learning during each class. It’s a wonderful characteristic to possess as a tutor / teacher and it will keep you on your toes, if you will."

15 Easy Ways to Practice Spanish Throughout the Day

Learning a new language shouldn't be limited to textbooks and coursework! Here, tutor Kaitlin W. shares her (easy) ideas for practicing Spanish throughout the day...  I don't come from a Spanish-speaking family, nor is my family from a country where Spanish is spoken. Yet every time I open my mouth to speak Spanish, I'm asked where I am from. I have a near-native accent that leaves little trace of my Anglo roots. I often make people guess what country I'm from, and I've heard every …
