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 or your kid and don't know what to choose, I know it's so overwhelming!

I have five years of experience with one-on-one online teaching as well as teaching in a classroom setti
ng. 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.

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!

Very happy with the first lesson. This is exactly what I need. Looking forward to the next classes.
I will provide you the learning materials, although you could send me the files that you are interested in learning or need help with.
I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker from northern China where Mandarin Chinese is born. I graduated from a Chinese university. I also learned how to teach a second language from a graduate school in the US with a 3.9 GPA and scholarships. I have over one year of experience teaching Mandarin Chinese as well. I have tutored school and college students who needed assistance with their Chinese homework, tests, or extra practice, and taught school students and adults that just wanted to pick up a new language. My students' age range from 8 to 80 years old. Currently, I'm studying Language and Learning focusing on teaching a second language. My passion is to be a language teacher. I think it would be awesome if I could help you learn Chinese while doing what I love. I offer online sessions with standard Mandarin Chinese and simplified Chin
ese characters. I will provide you the learning materials, although you could send me the documents that you are interested in learning or need help with. Right now I am specialized in beginner Chinese. My availability can be found on my profile. Looking forward to hearing from you. 大家好! 我的母语是中文， 我能够准确地使用普通话和简体字。我教过中学生中文， 辅导过在校学生的中文作业， 也帮助过职场人士提高汉语水平。我在本科毕业后移民到美国， 现在在读语言习得专业。我对语言教学很有热情。如果可以在你学习汉语的过程中助你一臂之力， 那将是我的荣幸。中文并不像大家想的那么难学， 而且学起来会相当的有趣。选择一个好老师很重要。所以赶快联系我吧！如果可以，请告诉我你曾有过的任何和中文相关的学习经历，你的学习目标， 以及你想要上课的时间。我会尽我最大的努力来满足你的需求。

Zhenni really is the best instructor EVER! Aside from being one of the most caring and sweet humans I have ever encountered, she is a dedicated lesson-planner and instructor who is sure to help you progress in your Mandarin studies. I can say with absolute certainty that, as a non-native speaker, I could not have progressed to an advanced level of Chinese without knowing Zhenni. She is truly skilled at making Chinese language and culture feel cozy and familiar--a real gem!

I was taking Chinese at university level, but my professor was very fast paced and I didn't get much practice speaking. That's why I loved taking lessons with Zhenni! She's very thorough - correcting my grammar, tones or pronunciation whenever I make a mistake so that I don't develop bad habits. She also supplied a lot of additional insight into how modern people speak Chinese, so that I would sound more authentic and not just repeat lines I learned from a text book. Zhenni is also very personable and easy to talk to, which I found really helped me not be so self conscious when she would ask me to have a conversation in Chinese.
I am fluent and professional in Mandarin and fluent in English. I can teach you the skills necessary to speak natural and correct Mandarin Chinese
I’m a professional and fluent Mandarin Chinese speaker, with English as my second language. I can teach and tutor Chinese learners at any level, and help you perfect your pronunciation. I also accept other work, such as translations.
Mandarin can be really challenging for most people. By using logic and the similarities with your native language, I can make it way easier for you to understand the grammar and use the language. As a native Mandarin speaker, you'll have a great environment and full knowledge of the language from me.
I'm enthusiastic about teaching and sharing different culture to my students. Growing up in Asian culture makes me capable of telling the difference between western and eastern life styles. With more than 13 years of teaching experience, I have very solid teaching background and discover the easiest way of learning a new language by logic and constant practice. I enjoy creating different situations and encouraging students to think and talk. I'm sure you'll have fun and find it interesting to dig deeper more about the language and culture.
Grew up in China and graduated from one of the best universities in China. Learning Mandarin is more about learning Chinese culture than the words. Chinese is a very logical language and you will have a lot of fun learning with me.
Before I came to New York, I taught English at a local training center in Shanghai,China.
I started teaching Mandarin to a few Canadians and Americans when I was in university more than 10 years ago. And we still keep in touch now. Learning language is more about learning the culture. I am fascinated by the differences and similarities between Chinese culture and American Culture. And discovering those differences or similarities will create a big curiosity which will be very beneficial and effective when you learn the language.
In fact, many people don't know or never notice that Chinese is a very logical language and full of Chinese traditional wisdom. Even you don't agree China is becoming more and and more influential in the world, learning some Chinese culture and oriental philosophy will be an interesting journey.
"I really enjoyed having Yiqing as my Chinese tutor. She's friendly, passionate and always well-prepared for every class :)"
"Explains everything to my understanding.. Very professional and organized. On time to the lesson."
"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!"
"My son had a great time using games/play to reinforce Chinese words and phrases."
"Professional, kind, thoughtful and a wonderful person and teacher!"
"I had a wonderful experience with Lella! Great lesson!"
"Very fun environment that she created which makes learning easier. Looking forward to learn more with her"
"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."
"He was really understanding to the fact that I haven't been speaking much Chinese for the past 6 months. He went at a good pace and helped me understand a
