As an experienced Mandarin teacher, I look to break down each component of the language into its most simple parts, so that the student can best understand all aspects of, what can be, a very challenging language.

About Connor

Hello! I am a Mandarin teacher of many years, having taught in a variety of settings, from 1-on-1 tutoring, to immersion schools. As a Chinese-American, I have great tools in place to help English speakers best learn the challenging language of Mandarin Chinese. As someone who is bilingual, as well

I had an amazing experience with Connor Frost on the trial lesson for the 'Online Introductory Mandarin' classes. I decided to take his classes right away. What I liked from him? Everything, but putting in words, he has a strong online methodology, he's Chinese-American (his English is native, for me it's like I'm learning Chinese and practicing my English at the same time), he's very professional, patient, friendly, and it's clear he has all expertise and tools to make anyone learn Mandarin. I'm having so much fun. I strongly recommend him. Try it, you're gonna love it. Thank you Connor.

I took about 6 months of Mandarin lessons with Connor, and myself and my Taiwanese family members all notice how far I’ve come. In just these months, I have come much closer than I could have expected to my goal of being able to understand basic Mandarin conversations. Connor personalized my lessons to focus on the Taiwanese variations spoken by my family. He is not only knowledgeable in language and culture, but it is also very apparent that he has learned how to teach. He is patient and moves at a pace that fits with my schedule as an adult learner. I absolutely recommend him!

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

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!

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.

I have been teaching English as a foreign language in Moscow Russia and as a second language for a few months in the USA. In my classes I help students to build their confidence and strengths in their English learning . My students gone from beginning to intermediate level. I structure my lessons so students can enjoy the lessons and at the same time build strong ESL skills.

About Natasha

I am a master teacher focusing on the classical repertoire along with the very strong approache to improvisation. I am really helping each single student to achieve their interests in music rather than focusing on teaching one particular method. I just take a very similar approach to the Suzuki met

I am an experienced native speaking German tutor who has been teaching students of all ages and levels. I am a certified Montessori Teacher. I believe in gently guiding, supporting, encouraging but also challenging my students. I love to share many fun facts , i.e. hilarious literal translations, as well as cultural and historical background of Germany. This will give my student a well balanced foundation, he /she will really experience the language, get a “real feel” for it! I customize my curriculum to my students needs, wishes and goals. After a few lessons my students can speak easy sentences and phrases in German already, they will understand even more and will use their newly acquired skills continuously. I strongly stress speaking in my native language to my students from an early point on. It is very important to me to make the language learning a pleasant and enjoyable experience! There shall be lots of laughter! However diligent work and great effort is necessary

Susanna is a wonderful instructor! After just 3 lessons with her, I can already see a huge improvement in my speaking and listening comprehension skills. Her method of instruction is unique and she knows how to tailor her lessons to the needs of each student. I am so glad that I have chosen Susanna as my German teacher and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to truly master the German language. Vielen Dank Liebe Susi! Du bist eine wunderbare Lehrerin!
