We hired Angela to teach our five and nine-year-olds Mandarin. We have had three lessons with her and so far, we are thrilled to have found her. Angela is thoughtful, intentional, enthusiastic, committed and genuinely cares about how my kids are learning. She always comes to lessons on time and prepared with worksheets, tools and lesson plans. She makes up games to keep the kids engaged and interested. She keeps a great balance between fun and structured teaching. She is a gifted teacher. Right now she's teaching them Pinyin and even though their progress is slower because we only see her once a week, I am happy with how much they're enjoying lessons. We cannot recommend her enough!

I have been learning Mandarin for about 1.5 years. During that time I have gone through many teachers trying to find the right match. Some weren't as engaged to teaching as I would like, some had teaching practices that weren't good for my style of learning, others did not have the patience I needed. Angela is the most patient, positive and engaged teacher I have met and I really enjoy my classes with her. Angela always gives positive reinforcement and encouragement, is very energetic and caring. She patiently answers all of my questions and will spend time getting my pronunciation right no matter how long it takes. Most importantly she pushes me to converse in Mandarin frequently, a quality that I have found rare in other teachers. This is extra important to me for helping my confidence using it outside of class. I highly recommend her as a teacher for anyone learning Mandarin.

In the beginning, I was really afraid of talking to others in English because I know that I can’t speak English well. However, after some lessons, I become more and more confident and fell in love with the lessons. I tried speaking to others and they answered me. This greatly encouraged me.

A bit of background, I am conversationally fluent in Cantonese, but had always wanted to learn Mandarin and become Chinese-literate. Corinne was the second tutor to respond to me, but the first who could meet with me. My initial apprehension at learning Mandarin from a white girl quickly evaporated upon our first conversation. Corinne is one of the sharpest, emphatic, and amiable people I've had the pleasure of meeting...I highly recommend her to anyone who's looking to learn Mandarin and about Chinese culture.

I have had Brandy as my private Mandarin teacher for about two months. As a student who has had lessons in classroom and private settings, I would recommend Brandy because her teaching is flexible and customizable to the student's needs (e.g. wanting to learn more conversation than reading, homework workload, books you want to work on, etc). Be sure to let her know what you are looking for - I was able to review a full year's worth of lesson with her in those two months. She's also Taiwanese, so if you want to learn Mandarin with more Taiwanese influence, she will definitely be helpful.

Eric has been great as a Mandarin tutor, particularly so in his efforts to make me feel at ease with a new language and asking me about what I wanted to prioritize in my learning. I appreciate his flexibility and his cordiality in following up. We have been meeting for 1 hr a week in Millbrae, which has worked perfectly for me!

I'm a retired university professor from Beijing. In the last 15 years, I've been in China and the US to teach Chinese Mandarin. I teach the most standard pronunciation; I have the profound understanding of Chinese culture, and I wrote a book about Chinese culture. If you want to improve your Chinese, you want to say the most standard of Mandarin, or you want to know the real Chinese culture, please contact me. For all the levels, I tutor a 1-on-1 lesson. I will help you learn Chinese easily in a funny environment. Please email or make a phone call.

I have been teaching Italian for more than ten years, both privately and at the college level. I love to give my students the empowering experience of learning a new language and to share with them my knowledge of my beloved country. My lessons focus both on grammar and culture, and students of all ages and different levels of language proficiency are welcome. For my teaching, I use both textbooks and current multimedia materials. I also provide translation services (English into Italian and some Italian into English as well) and interpretation services.

I can give lessons of reading, writing, and talking in Spanish, mostly for beginners, but I'm fluent; I can also help other levels because I lived most of my life in Colombia. The price per hour is $17, but I can fix it depending on where it is and on how many hours.
