Minna is awesome! She offered a free lesson to show me how the tutoring works, which was very helpful. I love the flexibility of times that we can Skype, I also love that I don’t have to travel anywhere! Minna does a great job of taking what you already know and helping you to expand it. Her style is easy to follow and she is patient with me when my brain stops working haha. I have been trying to learn Mandarin on my own for a few years and in just a couple lessons I already feel like I have a better grasp. She knows the right amount of challenging me as the student while being very encouraging. I really wish I found Minna a long time ago! She is a great and fun teacher who really knows her stuff. Hire her! Just don’t take my spot! LOL

Excellent mandarin tutoring from Zhong (Lily) Li. I had the opportunity to compare among three tutors and Lily was by far the best. She has an excellent handle of mandarin and can break down words that would be easy to understand for non-native speakers. As a bonus, she has a finance background so she can teach you mandarin in a business setting. Highly recommend.

Juan is an excellent Mandarin tutor who provided me with an enjoyable experience highly conducive to learning. She quickly gauged my proficiency level and adapted our sessions to help me meet my learning goals and get what I wanted out of the tutoring. I highly recommend Juan as a tutor. She is also very friendly, responsive, and easy to communicate with, which is a great plus.

I was a student of Mr. Frost's for two years. I find FrostForward learning very professional and punctual, and I had a very fun time learning Mandarin from him.

I grew up speaking Italian and always loved being able to switch between languages. When I was ready to learn another language, I decided learning Mandarin would be the best choice given how many people in the world speak it and the current geopolitical climate. I chose AC Tutoring due to their catered lessons and their flexibility. I get to choose the schedule that works best for me and my lessons are slowed down or sped up based on my individual performance. I live in the peninsula and my tutor and I coordinate each week to meet either at a cafe of at a library depending on the content of the lesson. Should I have spikes in work or travel, my tutor and I build this into our lesson plan. After 1 year, I took a trip to China in which I felt very comfortable navigating alone and making every day conversation with locals. Highly recommended for someone looking to learn the language but who needs more flexibility as compared to a structured, weekly class.

Amanda custom fits our Mandarin classes so that I get the most from them. The one on one lessons are enjoyable and taylored. I’m learning quicker than I imagined. She puts a lot of thought into her methods. I feel like I’m getting college grade instruction at a fraction of the cost. I highly recommend her as a Mandarin language teacher.

Melody is a great Chinese tutor! I've been studying Mandarin with her to improve my speaking ability, and she is really helping me a lot. She makes the lessons interesting and engaging, tailored to my interests, and pushes me to speak more, which is what I need most. I always learn a lot of new vocabulary at each lesson as well, which is great. If you're looking to learn Chinese or improve your Chinese, I highly recommend Melody.

Hui is an excellent teacher. Her lessons are very flexible and she was able to adjust to whatever topic I was interested in learning. She is also able to speak mandarin and Cantonese and would share the differences between the two dialects. I would recommend her for anyone from beginner to advanced level.

    Mina has been teaching my three children, ages 10, 8 and 6, for the past six months. She is a dedicated teacher who is able to teach Mandarin to them in a fun and engaging way - my children look forward to lessons each week. They are eager to practice what they've learned and are proud of their progress. Mina understands the needs and learning styles of each child. I would highly recommend Mina to anyone who is interested in having their children learn Mandarin.

    About

    Currently, I'm an architect, having my own design studio in the city. My undergraduate is from the most famous art Institute in China. I started to teach painting and sketching many years ago. My mother tongue is Chinese, and I got a master's degree in USA in architecture, so my English is also good. That's why I can teach both art and Chinese.

    I have always been very interested in Chinese culture and language, and I had been planning to learn Mandarin Chinese for a while, though I kept postponing it because I heard that it is a hard language and I was a bit intimidated. It was not until late last year that I told myself that I needed to make a decision, so learning Chinese became my new year resolution for 2016. On the next day I started shopping online for Chinese language schools in town, and after quite a few inquiry phone calls and a couple visits, I decided to choose Mandarin House, which I realized later was a great decision. So I started as a total beginner in January, and I have taken both intensive and part-time classes and by now I have almost finished Level 3 and will move on to Level 4 soon. Mandarin House has its own textbooks developed by its R&D department, and I found the textbooks very systematic, practical, and learner-friendly. They cover a wide array of topics, from simple ones like ordering food, buying clothes, taking subway, sending mail, opening bank account, etc., all the way to more advanced topics related to Chinese culture, economic development, environmental protection, and so on and so forth. Meanwhile, I’m also deeply impressed by all my instructors, who may have various teaching approaches and characteristics, but all are very patient, enthusiastic, and experienced. Moreover, the three instructors I had, aside from being native speakers of Chinese, all have either a master’s degree or a PhD in linguistics or Chinese language study, so they were able to explain the grammar clearly and logically, which made it much easier for me to grasp the grammar. The class size here is also very small, usually just around 3 people, so each of us had plenty of opportunity to participate in class, and the instructors also kept encouraging us to talk as much as possible. We often practiced dialogues in class simulating real-life scenario, so our classroom was full of laughers and merriment. In addition, we also have quite a lot of practice on listening comprehension and reading comprehension, so I think that my speaking, listening, and reading skills are so far quite balanced. My character writing is still weak, but that’s because I have been primarily focusing on the other three aspects. That being said, actually I have recently started to practice typing Chinese characters on my cell phone (using an awesome app called WeChat) at my instructor’s suggestion, which I found not as difficult as I thought. So all in all, after months’ study at Mandarin House, I feel increasingly confident in my Chinese language skills, and I am going to continue my lesson here until I become an advanced speaker. Actually, now looking back, I cannot believe that I have improved so much in such a short time! Therefore, I highly recommend all those who aspire to learn Chinese, especially with long-term goals, to try Mandarin House, because if you want to be committed to learning a language, you should learn from the best!
