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.
