My girls had their first class with Shan earlier this week and they had a blast. She is organized and professional. Prior to the first meeting, she asked me what my level my girls were in their Mandarin and what they were interested in. At the end of the class, she gave me an outline of what her lesson would be and made sure I was on the same page as her. The day after the first lesson my girls already asked when they would be going back go their Chinese teacher.
Her experience and expertise will give my boys the opportunity to learn Mandarin, and as importantly, to learn about China and Chinese culture. A truly dedicated professional.
For my upcoming trip to China, I wanted to learn some basic travel phrases. I am so glad I chose Shan L. to work with me. Her sessions have been effective, organized, and interesting. Along with pronunciation and travel phrases, she has provided insights into Chinese culture and has given invaluable travel advice. Now I am even more excited about traveling to China, and I know my visit will be enhanced because of Shan’s excellent tutoring.
I was very pleased with Shan L's tutoring. She adjusts her teaching to the student so that the learning is comfortable and your time is used efficiently. She is friendly and courteous. I highly recommend her services.
A note for people in Milwaukee, you will likely need to travel to her but the drive is not bad. She is not far from the highway.
Shan L. is the ultimate professional as both a teacher and language tutor. She is patient with adult learners, practical in her approach, and makes learning a difficult second language enjoyable. Her schedule is flexible and she provides a perfect learning environment. I highly recommend Shan L.
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.
