I had started learning Chinese when I was younger, but after 8 years without using it I had forgotten most of it. Cecilia made a teaching plan focused both on reviewing the things I had learned, as well as adding a lot of new vocabulary to help me in everyday conversations. After three months of classes, I already feel I have made a lot of progress in vocabulary, writing, and listening. Cecilia is very experienced and patient as I am working towards improving my pronunciation. I also like the fact that she shares cultural information about the topics we study.

Cecilia is a wonderful tutor in many ways. She knows how to plug into the individual needs of the student she is working with and she is very professional. Mandarin is not an easy language and she has been very instrumental in assisting my son with any challenges during his third year of study. He is currently getting excellent grades in a class where his teacher is very demanding. As a plus, Cecilia is concerned about the general well being of her students and she will even update me if she has any concerns. My son enjoys working with her and they have successfully accomplished their weekly goals. I would highly recommend investing in her expertise as a Mandarin Chinese Tutor.

In the last ten months I have learned 300-400 words, the ability to create and understand longer sentences and am approaching the point where I could visit China and communicate basic needs. Cecilia continues to inspire me to learn tones and the more I learn the more I realize how important tones are. I expanded my hour long class to 90 minutes and I would recommend this for every serious student.

I've been learning basic Chinese conversation. She also teaches me basic vocabularies and grammars. It's very helpful. She always gives me some motivation and cheers me up. It's fun to learn Chinese with her!

Cecilia is a wonderful tutor. Her teaching is thorough and systematic, and after just a few lessons I was able to actually communicate in Chinese with my Uber driver!
"Good teaching technique"
- Patricia Seattle, WA on 1/7/2017
Taught my daughter within an hour 1-100 and a few phrases. She sprinkled in games to keep it interesting. Recommended some alternative books that would be more appropriate for her age. She did a nice job keeping my daughter engaged. Thank you

Cecilia takes the time to actually teach you the concepts, rather than just memorization. She also gave me helpful studying tips in order to learn the material faster. I would definitely recommend her to other students.

I'm studying Mandarin from scratch and I can feel that Cecilia helps me to make a good progress. Cecilia is very patient in correcting my pronunciation mistakes. She also explains very well the correct way to fix these mistakes.

Ms Cecilia is very personable and professional. She is very aware of my daughter's skill level and prepares teaching plans designed just for her. Ms. Cecilia is intelligent and well-rounded and she has a lot to offer to my child's growth in the Chinese culture and language and life in general.
