Galina is helping my son learn Spanish and she is wonderful! She is prompt, warm, friendly, speaks several languages and so knows how to teach kids trying to learn another language. He looks forward to his lessons with Galina!

Grace Wang is my Mandarin tutor, and I have been taking private lessons with her for many years, first for SAT II Chinese prep and then for advance reading, writing, and conversation. Grace has always been very fun and approachable, and we have a great time conversing and reading about a wide range of topics such as Chinese history, idioms, and daily life. Her own understanding of Mandarin is very strong, and she takes the time to explain the nuances of the language. She also utilizes many different resources: online learning tools, textbooks, novels, etc. Most importantly, Grace is very patient, knowledgable, and flexible. I can suggest any kind of material to review for our classes, and she will always have insightful things to add. I always look forward to my Mandarin lessons with her!

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 would like to share my reviews about our Mandarin teacher Lillian. Lillian has been helping my boys with their Mandarin lessons for over 2 years now. I have one word for her - she is excellent. Some of the key things that I would like to point out - she is always punctual, has a great lesson plan; we are not native speakers, but my boys are quite engaged and motivated to learn Chinese, and this is primarily due to Lillian's lesson structure, her energy, her caring attitude. Her lessons include practical conversations, in addition to developing writing skills. We strongly recommend Lillian if you need help with learning Mandarin.

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.

Johnny has been an excellent tutor for Mandarin. He is patient and takes the time to make sure you understand and can work through pronunciations. He is always prepared and very flexible with his scheduling. I have been able to set goals and work towards them with Johnny and adjust the lessons to my needs and busy work/life schedule. I would recommend Johnny to anyone looking to learn Mandarin.

About

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.

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.
