I am a native Chinese speaker. I am teaching children, adolescent, and adult, by group or 1:1 lessons. I design study plan according to student's needs. I also adjust teaching style based on student’s personality and pace. Main textbooks I use are HSK and Integrated Chinese.

Joan is very friendly. She makes learning Mandarin quite easy. She is also very patient and engaging. I will definitely recommend using her
Jermaine
I've tried learning Mandarin Chinese with numerous instructors before Joan to no avail. My prior experiences have been arduous at best. But, my recent experience with Joan has been the complete opposite. Her teaching style encourages you to be bold and enjoy the learning experience, which makes learning a more fun experience. I would highly recommend her as a Mandarin Chinese instruction to anyone who truly wants to learn the language.
Rakaan Alfarsi
Very comprehensive and supportive, easy to understand and takes an extra mile to help me with lessons after hours. Will always go back to Ms. Joan for future lessons.

My name is Leila Q. We are going to work together to have fun lessons. I came from Shanghai, China. I graduated from a prestigious University in the USA. I have successfully helped students achieve their learning goals in speaking and writing within a half year, such as pronunciation close to a native, speaking basic Chinese, Improving their school performance, etc. I knew how to help them since I usually have a good relationship with them and motivate their studies.

I love teaching and work with different age groups of students who can be coupled years old to retirees. I started to teach Mandarin Chinese more than ten years ago. I will be so glad to meet you. Please come to try out my lesson!

"Zhao Yang Lin is perfect. My granddaughters Juliet, four, and Cosette, two, will love her. Give me a month and they will be on the road.

I am reluctant to praise Ms. Lin too highly for fear others will gobble up her time before I learn to read Renmin Ribao. But what the hell. I have an obligation to society.

Fortunately, I have a chunk of money I can devote to spending on her time.

In two or three weeks, the President will be sending me $1,200. Let us devote all of it for my lessons and that of my family.

Please let me know whether you are willing to accept this money as an IOU that I can spend freely now.

Meanwhile, there is this:

I had my first Mandarin lesson today. This is a chart showing the different meanings of the same word. Initially, the notion of tones intimidated me. Depending on tone, if you do not use the correct one, you can call my mother a horse and a horse my mother."

"Miss HaiBo was extremely patient and understanding. We got to know a little about each other to establish rapport then she evaluated my current knowledge of Mandarin (very little) and then started working with me on a plan to move forward. We covered key areas including tones, the alphabet, and numbers - all in the first lesson!

Miss HaiBo followed up or lesson immediately with additional resources she prepared and suggested homework. It was truly a pleasure to meet and work with Miss HaiBo. I am looking forward to next week's lesson already."
