Yanming is very patient and flexible. We have come up with custom Mandarin lessons to fit my needs and my learning habits. He is very good at utilizing different teaching strategies e.g. flashcards, online 1-on-1 session, etc. to help me grasp the language. Each online session is recorded so you can go back and review later on if you want. His scheduling is very flexible: I am only free early in the morning and he is still available for sessions. Overall, great guy.Jun 21, 2017

The service of, Mandarin Lessons, that I received from Mr. Zhang were outstanding! I rate him with 100 golden stars because of the quality of Yanming tutoring. He always seems to know when to adapt his teachings so I can process the information in a way that I can comprehend. I find that helpful because he will go back to basic teachings for me to understanding before he moves on to challenging materials. He patiently listen to my pronunciation and quickly identify my weaknesses in pronouncing second tones. When I speak incorrectly, he do not sign or make me feel incompetent, but encourage me to try again. This assures me that he want his students to exceed standard spoken Mandarin and press on to prefect speaking Mandarin. I am pleased with his honesty because he is teaching me accurate oral communication as well as accurate written communication. In conclusion, if you are looking for a tutor that is passionate for teaching, understands what needs to be taught, with outstanding work ethics, with willingness to reflect (why's and how's), organized, motivator, adaptable, considerate, and a good listener........ Then Mr. Zhang is right for you. I am a beginner Mandarin learner as of January 2017. In six month or to a year, I will review again in the Mandarin written language to show and prove I have an outstanding teacher. I thank Jehovah God that I met you online! Thank you, Yanming! It is a honor to have as my professor in Mandarin!Jan 29, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Online discounts: Free hours of service when you and me have time. Loving discounts for long-term customers: The first service hour is free if prepay 5 hours of service lessons. No contracts or obligations and refunds available. Short-term discounts: Free first hour if you are not satisfied. ( Customer voluntarily choose pay or not to pay after the first lesson. nothing else is needed. Customers will NOT be asked for a reason or challenged with anything. ) Actually, everyone has been satisfied so far. Travel to my office option is no longer available due to COVID-19. Discounts available could be $39-$45 for the first hour. The lesson will be free if you are dissatisfied and do not want to continue, which has never happened before.
