Monique was so kind and made me feel so comfortable. I am excited to keep learning. I could not have found a better teacher

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.

Had a great first lesson with Monique. She's well organized and has clear objectives in her lesson plan. She's also flexible and recognizes when to move on more quickly or spend a little time reinforcing a topic.

Monique is a very patient and thorough tutor. I've had three lessons with her so far, and I've learned so much each time. Wonderful Mandarin tutor!

Monique is a very patient and kind teacher. She is very nice but challenging and makes sure that her student understands the concept before moving on.

She is challenging and she is always trying to see if I learned something or not. She is helpful in times of need (for learning), she is strict on places where you need to be strict on.
