What do students say

Min is patient and encouraging, and you can tell she genuinely enjoys teaching. I’ve taken the beginner and beginner-intermediate Mandarin classes with her and definitely recommend them! I went from being a complete beginner to reading characters and having a conversation in Mandarin.
— Katie A.
This beginner’s class helped me with pronunciation and basic grammar. I also got unique tips to understand some of the characters
— Francisco M.
Min is a really great teacher. She prepares valuable lessons that are customized to Chinese situations with my wife’s family. Gives hand outs on the days lesson and to practice at home from. She is always well prepared and takes the time to make sure I understand the lesson and have the correct pronunciation. I highly recommend her to anyone trying to learn Chinese from the very beginning like me.

In my advanced Chinese sessions we reviewed readings relevant to my interests with emphasis on learning new vocabulary. The classes were always fun!
