One of the marks of a good tutor is their skills in the language of the student. This helps them explain how to speak in the language the student is learning. Rae's pacing is great, her pronunciation is easy to understand (Beijing style Mandarin), and she writes it out in pinyin as she is speaking which helps learners who need to both hear and read pinyin to retain the information.

She is so patient with the kids! They really love her so much and are very engaged. I am impressed.

I'm really enjoying my lessons with Yuexin. She's very patient and is able to answer all my questions. She's also happy to customize the lesson to suit my interests; for example, we took some time to go over voice lines in a video game that were in Chinese and then work on the pronunciation and pinyin for them.

The textbook and workbook she had me get have been helpful, and I've been supplementing by practicing on my own using Duolingo. I think the combination has been really effective for learning the language. Yuexin has been great for correcting my pronunciation and teaching me how native speakers would actually speak and write.

"My husband and I had a great experience taking beginning Chinese lessons with Monique. We didn't know a lick of Chinese, and now we feel pretty comfortable with basic communication. We're moving to Beijing next month, so Monique was great at tailoring our lessons to our specific needs (for instance, restaurant, airport, and "getting around" vocab). She's a great, patient teacher and is very flexible with scheduling."
