Knowledgeable and Patient

Natalie has successfully engaged my 13 year old son so that he looks forward to his next lesson with her. I am more than pleased with Natalie's ability to build on his 4 year foundation of Mandarin. I highly recommend Natalie for her patience with a 13 year old boy and excellent teaching style.
