I make language learning fun and effective, using established techniques for effective and rapid language acquisition. I prefer to teach speaking and listening together with reading and writing, but some students prefer only to learn to speak, which is also fine. It can be faster to get up and running with conversations, but with less deep an understanding of the language.

As a native English speaker who lived in mainland China for over 8 years, I have the unique ability to explain pronunciation and other issues clearly from a foreigner's perspective. I can help you understand quickly and easily how to form the sounds we don't have in English, as well as visualize the tone systems that are characteristic of Mandarin Chinese.

About J.Q.

I studied jazz trumpet performance at Oberlin Conservatory (Bachelors, '02) and The Juilliard School (Masters '17). I studied Mandarin Chinese at Oberlin College (Bachelors, '02). I lived and worked in Shanghai, China, from 2003 to 2010. I've been teaching music and language lessons for over 15

I have literally looked for years for the right trumpet teacher for my 12 year old son. JQ is a treasure. He challenges the student appropriately but is also gentle and understanding about the realities of life for a 12 year old in NYC. Cannot recommend him highly enough. Very skilled teacher, performer, and totally on point with showing up, planning ahead, etc.
Joey
Fantastic trumpet instructor. JQ is patient, receptive, encouraging—the list goes on. He's helped me go from literally not being able to make a decent note to playing a little shindig on New Year's for my family. Highly recommended. I'm still taking lessons!
Sean
I found that J.Q. was a quality tutor. He adapted to what I needed to focus on for Mandarin, which was tones, and as such I was able to improve my foundation. 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.

About Richard

I have been tutoring students for over twenty years. Before an actual lesson takes place, I find it important to talk to the student. Find out his concerns, what are his strong points and his weak ones. I want to know. what are his current ways of learning. The maxim: one size fits all is limiting

"There three major reasons why I am so happy with the classes:
1. Every session Roman manages to make me work really hard without any stress or pressure.
2. I only pay for classes but get much more: class supporting materials, various activities that are always very fun, homework, work sheets, grammar presentation etc.
3. I spent four years in school leaning French but could never speak it. After my third class with Roman I was already interacting with him using the language!"

Joyeuse Fête des Pères: French Vocabulary for Father's Day

Whereas France and the U.S. celebrate Mother’s Day on different days in May, both countries celebrate Father’s Day on the same day every year: the third Sunday of June. Known in France as Fête des Pères, young children often show appreciation for their fathers by making crafty items, such as ties and bow ties made out of paper and cardboard picture frames made from cereal boxes. Older children, like those in the U.S., will often buy their father a gift that they know he'd love. …
