Private Mandarin Teacher

I have more than nine years of language teaching experience. I have learned five languages over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese when I was 19 and I founded my first summer camp in China when I was 20. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

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.

thank you very much
Sarah
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.
Lilian C.
Yuexin is an excellent Mandarin teacher for kids. My 8 year-old has started lessons and is progressing well. Yuexin researched and picked out a good textbook for kids. She is patient, clear, and easy to schedule with. We are happy!

My 4.5 year old daughter had her first piano lesson with Jingci. I had learned how to play piano when I was a kid, so I could tell Jingci knows how to teach the basic foundation very well. She's firm yet patient and got my daughter to follow her instructions even though her attention span isn't that great at her age.

"I have an English speaking 2nd grader who has been working with Grace for 4 weeks now. Carson is very comfortable in class with Grace. He is doing well. She even recommended a text book that I was completely unaware of. We have lived in China for the last 6 months and are now back in USA working with Grace to improve his basis. Carson 1st Lanuage is English. She is very patient."

"I am taking Mandarin lessons from Grace because I am adopting a child from China and want to have some basic communication skills. I have never been good at learning languages, and I was hesitant because I know Mandarin is one of the most difficult languages to learn. After just 3 lessons, I am learning and I love it! I have had so much fun with Grace! She is a fabulous teacher. She is patient, kind and personable. She presents the material so that it is understandable. I am actually learning and remembering what I learned. I originally planned to take 10 one-hour lessons so I have a good basic knowledge, but I am absolutely going to continue taking lessons with her when the 10th is done. The time I spend with Grace just flies by, and I look forward to our lessons. I am so thrilled that I found Grace, and relieved that she is able to present the material to me in a such fun and comprehensible way.

I chose to take lessons with Grace because she teaches people of all ages. I am 51 years old. When my child arrives home from China this year, he will be approximately 2 years old. I look forward to taking lessons in the future with my child and having Grace teach both of us. Learning about China and the language will help my child and me connect to each other and to his culture and homeland. Thank you, Grace, for helping me on my adoption journey and beyond!"

"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."
