It was fun, and Ying was patient and willing to customize the lesson based on my experience with Mandarin and my interests.
Jill
Ting is very easy to work with. My reason for getting a tutor is primarily for verbal practice. However I’ve found Ying to be great at explaining the formatting of the Mandarin sentence structure.
Cole S.
Tonight was my sons first lesson. He loved Ying and is looking forward to his next lesson!

"I've been teaching Chinese for 15 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Chinese culture, study abroad in Asia, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!
Chinese language learning materials as part of an integrated curriculum designed to motivate students in non-native Chinese environments to start speaking Chinese.

Very impressed and satisfied with this experience. He explained each topic excellently and made us feel good about learning. Time flew by and didn't stress us out or bore us. Keep up the good work!

Allen was able to get my daughter caught up on what she was not able to fully grasp during the COVID online school year. She feel much more confident going into her next school year (especially since Math continues to build on what you have learned previously) with that foundation to build upon. Thanks!

I have been teaching Mandarin Chinese since 2014 with a unique method called TPR, i.e. Total Physical Response.

In the class, you will learn to understand and speak the language through your senses, like a child learning the mother tongue.

This is the most natural way for us to learn any language, through seeing, touching, smelling, listening, even tasting!

There are many games and fun activities in my lessons that would engage you to speak and eventually enable you to communicate with native speakers at ease!

I encourage my students (age 5-80) to speak shamelessly and laugh with me.

About Shunyu

I like to infuse games, activities and music in my classroom. I hope that you feel relaxed and confident at the end of the lesson and won’t be afraid to speak the new language with native speakers. As a musician, photographer and a mother, I will try to figure out what’s the best way for YOU

Shunyu is wonderful, energetic teacher that really cares about her students. She is very attentive, positive, innovative and great in communication.

Learning any language virtually is a challenge, Shunyu makes it work and makes it fun. Our son really enjoys the classes and asks for more,
Both of our sons loved their first class. Shunyu is fun and enthusiastic. They feel as if they’ve known her for a long time. They’re looking forward to their next class!
Janae C.
At first, I was nervous since I've never taken online one-on-one lessons. Shunyu is SUPER friendly, easy going, and immediately put me right at ease!

She knows how to tailor the lessons exactly to my needs and is patient when guiding me through forming my sentences by giving me words that fit exactly what I am trying to say.

A++; I throughly recommend! :)

Best of all, she has an excellent command of English and was able to discern nuance and detail. At first I was not sure about online lessons, but after a few minutes with Tammy, it was clear that this will work extremely well. I am staying with her and highly recommend her for any level."

"HaiBo is very patient! I have been studying Chinese on my own for quite a while, but definitely need help with tones. She goes over and over them with me until she feels I've done them right! She is kind enough to put reviews of words, sentences, phrases in the form of flashcards on an app so I can review them over the course of the week. We have needed to reschedule several times and she has been flexible enough to do that for me, too! I have reviewed stuff I thought I knew and have learned new vocab, but most importantly, we have USED that vocab in sentences and I feel like I'm actually improving my spoken Chinese! In addition, I have been working on learning characters with HaiBo and I am surprised how many I know!"
