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 F.

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 with extensive knowledge of both languages, as well as a teacher of both Mandarin and English, I have a great understanding of both languages, thus am able to help bridge any gaps between the two.

In addition to language, I am also a life-long musician. I offer a beginner guitar class to get you started on basic chords, scales, and classic songs. Currently I'm ONLY working with complete beginners (no previous guitar experience).

As a lead singer for an original rock band, I've had years of performance, touring, teaching, and songwriting experience. Many of my students have gone on to be great songwriters themselves.

I look forward to working with you!

Connor has been teaching my son Mandarin to complement his lessons at high school for two years. He has been great at engaging him and helping him practice both speaking, reading and writing. This has given him the confidence to speak more Mandarin during class. Additionally, Connor has a great rapport with my son and is very patient, organised and thorough with his lessons. I highly recommend Connor as a teacher.

Mr. Connor has been working with my children for four years. He is an amazing teacher who is very patient and kind to my children. He is teaching them Chinese, singing, drums and guitar. Unlike other teachers we've had in the past, Mr. Connor incorporates games and songs into all his lessons which makes language learning much more interesting for young kids. My children adore Mr. Connor and are always looking forward to working with him every lesson.

Connor does a great job at making the learning experience fun. He breaks down the lessons well, which really helps with learning the material. I would highly recommend for anyone learning to play a new instrument!

Connor is an extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible mandarin instructor. The progress I’ve made with him during my 1.5 years of classes has been astounding. The quality of learning which Connor provides is of the highest degree, and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a Chinese tutor.

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!

My child worked with Connor of FrostForward Learning as a tutor for Mandarin. Connor was excellent; he has both the necessary substantive knowledge and the interpersonal skills to work well with a teenager. He is professional, reliable, and easy to work with.

I recently had the pleasure of taking the FrostForward Online Introductory Mandarin course with Connor Frost. As a first time student of the language, it was imperative that I work with someone who was patient, and able to break down this difficult language in it’s most digestible form. Connor did not disappoint on either front. From the onset, it was clear that he was not only experienced, but well-versed in one of the world’s most difficult dialects (written and spoken). His fluidity made me more at ease and trusting of his instruction. I appreciate the obvious time he takes prepare in advance of each lesson, and the information he shares to help with independent study. I look forward to studying with Connor for some time to come!
