Yan P has a great grasp of chinese culture and teaches relevant and important words and phrases to assist with learning chinese and the chinese culture. Yan P also assists with recognizing chinese characters and how to write them.
Yun helped me with a video for a personal project where I had to translate from English to Chinese, add subtitles in Chinese Characters and create voice-over recording. She helped me out within the exact time I had predicted it would take and was totally honest with how some translations would change due to the differences of meaning of some words and ALSO how it would be accepted by Chinese natives. I would 100% sign up with Yun if I need any other help with the Chinese language!

I had no prior Chinese experience when I started lessons with Jim, but I wanted to complete the equivalent of an intro college course in Mandarin so that upon returning to school, I could test out of the intro course and continue with the next level of Chinese. Jim has accommodated the Mandarin textbook that my school uses ('New Practical Chinese Reader'), but has also challenged me with practical Mandarin phrases that he deems useful in daily conversation.
