I have been taking classes with Cecilia for couple of months, It's perfect, I have a full time job and many freelances and I'm still able to follow the program really easily. I am already making sentences on my own! WAHOO!!!!
Ms Cecilia is very personable and professional. She is very aware of my daughter's skill level and prepares teaching plans designed just for her. Ms. Cecilia is intelligent and well-rounded and she has a lot to offer to my child's growth in the Chinese culture and language and life in general.
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.
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.
