Zhang was a perfect tutor for our daughter. He worked to align his lessons to her weaknesses and we saw great improvement in her Mandarin abilities. I would strongly recommend Zhang!

Thank you Jon for the positive review! I truly enjoyed working with your family, and your daughter is a fast Mandarin Chinese learner. Please feel free to let me know if I can be of further assistance in the future. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Mr. Zhang comes once a week for 1.5 hours to tutor my 4 year old and 2 year old in Mandarin. My daughter loves her time with Mr. Zhang. He is a gifted and natural teacher who works easily with children. She is having fun and looks forward to her lessons. Our two year old is listening but still a little shy, though I attribute that more to his age.

Happy to have Zhang as Mandarin tutor for our 3,7 yo twins. Zhang demonstrates impressive creativity in applying game approaches as part of his language curriculum which is extremely important for the kids of this age group. He is patient, supportive and shows great dedication to the subject he teaches. Xièxiè Zhang Laoshi!))

I'd really appreciate your time writing such a positive review. I think I am lucky and honored to work with your supportive family . Those comments you stated are so important because they will tremendously boost my favorite Mandarin tutoring career. You and your husband are definitely among the best parents who are not only great observers and feel the progress of listening, speaking, reading, and writing in this target language, but are also able to offer workable alternatives based on the thorough understanding of the adorable children. Looking forward to continually meeting with you all in this upcoming new year!

Learning Chinese with Zhang was a pleasure. Zhang was meticulous and prepared carefully for each session. He had a healthy mix of tools to keep my interest up and wanting to keep going. I spent a month with Zhang and wanted to get a good appreciation of what learning Mandarin involved. With Zhang's help I am glad I achieved that!
