About Zhao Yang L.

Hi! 你好!Привет!

My name is Evgeniya (Zhao Yang)!

I am multilingual and I specialize in tutoring Mandarin Chinese, Russian and ESL.

You have a genuine interest in learning Mandarin or Russian, you would love to explore the language, to learn more about the culture, people, history...

But you are struggling with learning Russian/ Mandarin Chinese on your own. You need a guide who will help you and step by step will go with you toward your goals, support you in your language learning journey. You are most likely looking for the right course/ program/ teacher for you and don't know what to choose, I know it's so overwhelming! Don't wander around for too long, make a decision and go for your dream.

About me

I have eight years of experience with one-on-one online teaching as well as teaching in a classroom setting. I have taught Mandarin Chinese to students aged 6 -18 at a Chinese Language Specialty School in Moscow and to sophomore, junior students, adults (I had a student who was 78 years old learning Chinese), I also have experience working with clients from diverse backgrounds within the business world (Tech companies, fashion industry, Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine Center and more). I prepare my students for each level of Chinese proficiency qualifications (YCT, HSK).

I am Russian and I teach Russian as well. I started teaching Russian 3 years ago, I absolutely enjoy the process of sharing my knowledge with students. Russian is such a beautiful language with a great history. I truly admire people who decided to learn Russian, I do my best to share my passion for the language with my clients.

I believe that when you learn a new language, you see the world through that language. Learning a language is not only about the language, it involves human communication, a
sharing of ideas, culture, travelling, history, arts, personal and professional development. So my lessons always include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students or any other topic the learner interested in.

At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. In practice I utilize interactive teaching methods and activities to motivate students to learn and communicate in a foreign language. I always use visual aids, such as software tools or videos and make students feel that learning a foreign language is fun and interesting.

I am happy that my passion for learning foreign languages became my profession. Teaching foreign languages for me is a Never-Ending Professional Development Journey. It’s a profession that allows me to be creative, work with a variety of different people, travel all over the world and inspire students not only academically but personally as well.

Zhao Yang is the perfect teacher. She is attentative, patient, thorough, encouraging, and extremely informative. I am so glad that I chose to learn from her. She assessed my knowledge of Mandarin in the very first lesson.

The lessons are tailored to my interests and learning style. Not every teacher has the ability to teach in a way that caters to an individual's learning needs and abilities. Having this ability makes Zhao Yang (feichang hao!) great! Each session, she reviews what was taught in the previous lesson and homework given. She also gives me a game plan on what I should practice as well as tools that I'll need to help me practice. I feel more and more confident after each lesson. I really appreciate Zhao Yang!!!

Evgeniya is an amazing Russian teacher! I am an English speaker, and I live in a place where Russian is widely spoken. I have tried a few times to learn Russian, and this is the first time that I am optimistic that I will progress in learning to be more conversational. I would recommend this class to anyone!

I`ve enjoyed my experience with Zhao Yang so far. She is very patient and kind. She took the time to cater to my learning style so that I could learn effectively. I `ve learned to so much in such a small amount of time and I`m excited about how far I`ll go in the near future. I`m very grateful to have her as a teacher.

Zhao Yang Lin is perfect. My granddaughters Juliet, four, and Cosette, two, will love her. Give me a month and they will be on the road.

I am reluctant to praise Ms. Lin too highly for fear others will gobble up her time before I learn to read Renmin Ribao. But what the hell. I have an obligation to society.

Fortunately, I have a chunk of money I can devote to spending on her time.

In two or three weeks, the President will be sending me $1,200. Let us devote all of it for my lessons and that of my family.

Please let me know whether you are willing to accept this money as an IOU that I can spend freely now.

Meanwhile, there is this:

I had my first Mandarin lesson today. This is a chart showing the different meanings of the same word. Initially, the notion of tones intimidated me. Depending on tone, if you do not use the correct one, you can call my mother a horse and a horse my mother.

Zhao Yang is a very patient, kind, and engaging tutor. I have been able to hone my Chinese abilities so much with her. She will accommodate almost any request and really takes the time to know you and your learning style. She will sometimes check up on you in between classes. You will be able to tell that she cares deeply about her students and she wants nothing but their success :)

I'm a shy guy so when I went in for my first lesson I was really scared but my teacher was really kind and five minutes in I had completely forgotten that I was scared, and I learned so much. I went from knowing a very basic introduction to being able to ask for something, and knowing more words and it would take me ages to list off everything I've learned. Amazing teacher!

Great Mandarin Chinese tutor, 100% recommended! It was very easy to get started, flexible and you become an effective communicator in a short period of time! From day 1 I started learning stuff that I could use in real life, within months I am now having full conversations in Chinese, because I was learning the language I needed and topics I would normally talk about. Classes were so enjoyable and worth it!
