Excellent AP Chinese teacher

Cassie is helping my son prepare for the AP Chinese exam - she is very organized, experienced, and effective. She assigns relevant homework and is doing a terrific job helping him to prepare. We don't speak Chinese at home so it's extremely helpful to have her support. My son says that he is learning a lot from her (more than he is learning in his class at school) and appreciates the extra practice. I believe he will be very well-prepared for his exam this May.

Helpful Tutor in Helping Me Pass My Teacher Certification Mandarin Exam

I'm currently trying to pass my New York State Teacher Certification language exam in order to become a bilingual speech-language pathologist. I've learned a lot of vocabulary and grammar rules from Cassie which has helped me a lot with improving my Mandarin. I would definitely recommend her!

HI Brenda, It is my pleasure to work with her to prepare her AP Chinese exam. Thank you for your feedback.

Great tutor

I took Chinese classes at school but I wanted to improve my speaking skills. Cassie was a great tutor and through our lessons I got a lot of speaking practice, improving both my fluency and vocabulary. She was very knowledgeable and delivered relevant and engaging lessons that were helpful.

Tutor responded:

Hi Joaquin, I hope you doing well. Thank you.

Knowledgeable teacher

Cassie has been very helpful in recommending different study techniques or practice material when I struggle. She is always encouraging and creates a friendly environment for unscripted conversation while practicing. I most enjoy that she includes the history and culture of the Chinese language when reviewing characters or different regions of China. Cassie is an excellent tutor who certainly knows what each student needs to succeed at their goal and recommend her to any scenario regarding the Chinese language, especially to university students like myself.

This was an initial assessment lesson. My daughter hasn't spoken Mandarin in 2+ years ,but Cassie put her at ease and the entire session was very engaging and fun.

Hi Brian, thanks for you review. Even though we ended up not working together, I enjoyed the initial meeting with your daughter. I do hope I can work with you again!

Consistently great

I have reviewed Cassie's tutoring earlier on, but I think it is useful to share, that a month in she continues to be a great tutor for my daughter; kind, effective, and organized. She has a clear plan which is so valuable.

Nancy, 94 lessons with Cassie

Hi Nancy, thanks for your review. Your daughter came to me with Mandarin fluency of 10 years already. Despite her advanced speaking skills, she still managed to improve through advanced vocabulary and reading comprehension AP lessons. Keep up the good work!
