Thank you so much Aleksei! You are devoted to learning and very smart! Every student has different needs. We focused on your strength in the class, you learned much more than the book provided. You also aware that Chinese pronunciation is difficult, so we find these you have had problems and practice those more. You are making great progress!

One of my specialties is adult learning. It is a very different method to teach adults. I am so glad you felt learning is not difficult!!

Thank you so much Shanta, I really appreciated your feedback. Your daughter is a smart and hard working student. I believe in learning foreign language must combine with learning that culture. Thank you for noticed that part of the teaching.
Mandarin Chinese is a challenging language and a lot of people think it is too hard to learn. But If the teacher has a right method and strategy for each student, they will be successful and having fun at same time. I learned a lot from my students and love them from bottom of my heart.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chinese

I am a native Chinese with special training for speaking with broadcasting quality Mandarin Chinese, basic and high level writing as well as in-depth Chinese culture.
