Sophie is an amazing teacher. I had the privilege of taking some one-on-one Mandarin lessons with her before traveling to China for work. She is incredibly professional and knowledgeable, and truthfully, I wish I had been able to spend more time working with her before traveling to China.
That said, upon arriving in China I certainly was not fluent. But what I did know how to say in the short daily exchanges I would have with locals, I would always receive compliments on my pronunciation and tone when speaking Mandarin, often hearing that my pronunciation was much better than "other foreigners".
Receiving those compliments are absolutely due to Sophie's exemplary instruction. If she can teach Mandarin to me, she can certainly teach it to you. You won't be sorry for enlisting her services.
Adrian has been an extraordinary asset to myself and my family. His ability to explain things and even demonstrate them in a simple practical way has allowed for us to move through our lessons with confidence and a proficiency I hadn't been able to tap into before. I intend to use him again for his personal training course for the same reasons. He is honest, on time and I really value his varied skill set whether you're looking to defend yourself, learn a little about gun use or want to sculpt your body Adrian is a wonderful person to go with.
Her services include vocal coaching, singing lessons, instrument lessons, dialect and speech, acting for stage, and acting for the camera. You will benefit from the experience of an international performer of stage, music, plays and radio as well as voice-over artist. She has worked with Philly's finest!

I am a native Mandarin speaker. I am a person who is honest, responsibility, patience, passion, work hard and simple person. I like working with people, I like teaching because I like to give my knowledge to my students.
I'm currently a full-time student enrolled in TESOL in Graduate School of Education at University of Pennsylvania. I'm a passionate language learner and user. I have tutoring and teaching experiences both in Mandarin Chinese and English (I'm a native Chinese speaker).
As a non-Chinese American, I understand the challenges involved with learning Mandarin at all levels. However unlike most non-Chinese Americans, I have an almost native accent when speaking Mandarin, as I payed particular attention to the exact sounds while learning the language.
