Very relaxed atmosphere. Tianlu allowed me to ask questions about Chinese culture as well, which was very beneficial to me since I am using my Chinese to communicate with my Chinese neighbors. Knowing something about the culture is very important as our cultures are very different. I highly recommend Tianlu if you are looking for a Chinese tutor, I don't think you could find a more knowledgeable, competent and caring tutor!
I feel that the conversation practice has been essential towards developing my confidence in speaking Chinese. Zoe is always very patient with me as I fumble through my broken Chinese, and corrects any grammar or vocabulary issues immediately. I believe that having this feedback loop is critical in avoiding bad speaking habits, so I am really glad that she does this. I also love listening to Zoe's stories from her own life and about Chinese culture.
