Cecilia is a great teacher who always customizes her lessons for me. I am learning at a very quick pace thanks to her teaching style and I feel more prepared for my trip to China. Thank you Cecilia!

Cecilia is a top-notch Mandarin tutor. My teenage daughter attended a Mandarin immersion elementary school program for six years, but she has been almost entirely away from the language for the past two years. In just a few short months of working with Cecilia, my daughter's Mandarin proficiency has already eclipsed what it was when she graduated elementary school and she's learning new material quickly. Since my wife and I do not know any Mandarin, Cecilia is our daughter's only guide. Cecilia is very encouraging, clear, and organized. My daughter looks forward to her sessions with Cecilia. Plus, the book series she works from is accessible. We are lucky to have found Cecilia!

Cecilia has been working with my 12 y.o. and she is an amazing tutor! My kiddo has taken Mandarin at school for years but has learned more from Cecilia in the last 2 months than at school.
- Moira M. from Chicago, IL
Cecilia is an excellent teacher who strives to deliver on her promises. She is both realistic and motivating. She will laugh with you and gently push you when you need it. If you are looking to learn at the highest level with a deeply qualified teacher, hire Cecilia.
- Christian Fanli R. from San Francisco, CA
Always keeps the class engaging. Really cares about her students? progress. Incorporates school material with useful and outside vocabulary. Great at explanations. Perfect tutor! 10/10!
- Paula B. from Menomonee Falls, WI
I've been studying Chinese with Cecilia. She's been a helpful and encouraging teacher who's not only helped me pick up the basics of the language but has also worked with me on pronunciation and culture. I'll be continuing me studies with her, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn Chinese!
- Erik M. from Bellevue, WA
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.
- Maxine M. from New York, NY
I appreciate the conversation. It is helpful to listen and then answer. It is encouraging when I can understand the question and then Cecilia can understand my answer. Also, she provided assistance in adding the Simplified Chinese language to my computer so I can begin typing in Chinese. The lessons build my confidence and motivate me to continue to learn.
- Cindy S. from Bellevue, WA
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 learnt, 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.
- Konstantina M. from Bellevue, WA
Vocabulary, characters etc. Thank you Cecilia for your patience and assistance. It has been invaluable. Cecilia jumped in right away to help him and my son is very pleased with his progress.
- Gail C. from Trenton, NJ
She has been very patient in working with me despite my many technical issues. She is very organized and helps you stick to your goal. I told Cecilia what my plans were and what I wanted to focus on, and she has crafted a lesson plan that works well for me. I highly recommend her
- William E. from Baltimore, MD
Cecilia has been very patient with me as I balance life changes, and am at times challenged to find time to study. She's a wonderful teacher I look forward to continuing to partner with until I achieve Chinese fluency.
- Vaughan P. from San Diego, CA
Cecilia connected with me to assess my level of Chinese and assign me a book accordingly. Also, she assigned me homework to do for our first lesson next week. Can't wait to get started!
- Ariadna C. from Seattle, WA
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.
- Steve R. from Sammamish, WA
Cecelia is an amazing tutor! She is very knowledgable and helps you turn your learning towards topics that will be immediately used in your everyday life/job. Her technique helps you learn efficiently and the in-lesson time is always spent wisely.
- Madeleine C. from Seattle, WA
Cecilia is a very knowledgeable and experienced tutor. She generally tailors the classes towards my needs, and we are generally able to cover a lot. She is also very nice and patient with me, which definitely helps keep me motivated. I already feel my Chinese improving and I am excited to continue working with her!
- Rohan C. from Seattle, WA
In teaching Chinese, Cecilia is very knowledgable and understanding. Her lessons are concise and easy to follow. I am thankful to have her as my Chinese tutor.
- Royce C. from Honolulu, HI
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!
- Rico S. from Seattle, WA
Brandon enjoys her teaching style very much. We had a very short time frame for him to prepare to test so her focused/professional approach will ensure he makes it to the finish line. He looks forward to their sessions
