Connor is a wonderful teacher. Definitely recommend to anyone wanting to learn and understand Mandarin all at levels. As a beginner, I was nervous about learning a different language. This experience has been better than I could have imagined! The lessons are informative, creative, and engaging. Connor takes the time to make sure you understand the information and are able to apply it before moving on. I genuinely look forward to each session. I am shocked at how much I have learned in a short amount of time.

I had an amazing experience with Connor Frost on the trial lesson for the 'Online Introductory Mandarin' classes. I decided to take his classes right away. What I liked from him? Everything, but putting in words, he has a strong online methodology, he's Chinese-American (his English is native, for me it's like I'm learning Chinese and practicing my English at the same time), he's very professional, patient, friendly, and it's clear he has all expertise and tools to make anyone learn Mandarin. I'm having so much fun. I strongly recommend him. Try it, you're gonna love it. Thank you Connor.

Mandarin Lessons

I recently had the pleasure of taking the FrostForward Online Introductory Mandarin course with Connor Frost. As a first time student of the language, it was imperative that I work with someone who was patient, and able to break down this difficult language in it’s most digestible form. Connor did not disappoint on either front. From the onset, it was clear that he was not only experienced, but well-versed in one of the world’s most difficult dialects (written and spoken). His fluidity made me more at ease and trusting of his instruction. I appreciate the obvious time he takes prepare in advance of each lesson, and the information he shares to help with independent study. I look forward to studying with Connor for some time to come!

Mandarin Lessons

I was a little anxious to do online learning and had some questions before starting what seems like a very complicated language (mandarin), but Connor was professional yet laid back, answered all my questions, and explained the plan ahead in a way that made me feel on board with the lessons. So far it’s just the beginning but i am truly looking forward to my next lessons with him.

On our first trial lesson, Connor kept my 6 year old interested with images of pets and cartoonish characters that naturally appeal to kids. My son was smiling and forgot some of his inhibitions by the time we got to a game of tic tac toe that Connor modified to reinforce counting numbers and practice of simple vocabulary words he just taught. I look forward to future classes.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Rates are always negotiable depending on distance and time. Packages are also included if student wants to meet more than once a week.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first session or two is used for an evaluation process. During that time, I will work with the student to come up with a comprehensive plan to move forward with a suitable curriculum. I'll touch on all aspects: writing, reading, listening, and speaking.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I studied Mandarin in college and have been a full time/part time Mandarin teacher for seven years. I've worked with all age groups, from toddler to adult. I have taught ESL for Asian Americans for Equality and am currently an adjunct professor at New Jersey City University.
