I am a Chinese native speaker who is pursuing my higher education in the United States. I have been taking an advanced Chinese class with Ms. Min for 7 months now. I improved the most on my writing skills and oral/formal presentation skills, because speaking and reading skills are easy for me. At the beginning, I struggled in writing with my limited advanced vocabulary. Ms. Min took time structures me on every single of my compositions with her comments are almost at the same length as my original essays. She always tries to honor my writing style and word of choices in her feedback. She demonstrates me patience, self-awareness, honesty, and passion in her teaching. She genuinely cares about her students. She celebrates her students’ every step in their learning journey and growth. I am very fortunate to be one of her many students.
Chinese is hard, even for a Chinese native speaker. However, Ms. Min taught me to never give up, give myself time to improve and pause to reflect, set up feasible goals for the future, and most importantly to truly be myself. Being an international student studying overseas is challenging, I am grateful for having Ms. Min’s friendship, listening, and understanding. I admire her energy, smiles, personality, and positive attitude towards her career, students, and life. Her English name, Sunny, represents well on her character and charisma.

My son has taken few lessons with Grace to help with homework and test prep. My only issue is with the audio quality of the lesson: either she's speaking a bit too far from the microphone or something wrong with her computer microphone. So sometimes it's very hard to hear her although volume on our end is on max. Other than that she's very patient and helpful and my son is gaining confidence.

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.

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!!!
Nathan G.
Zhao is an excellent teacher. She is patient and really understands how to present the material in a way that is easy to learn. I highly recommend!

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!
