I highly recommend Ralph D. as a Chinese tutor. He develops lesson plans for my skill level and has helped build my knowledge of Mandarin. His expertise in traditional and simplified characters is very useful and his time spent in different parts of China allows for interesting cultural instruction. He is prompt, efficient, courteous (i.e. professional) and easy to work with.

Laurel is always very patient! Sometimes it takes me awhile to understand something, and she always takes her time to make sure that I understand.
Suzanne L. from Santa Rosa, CA
I have been tutoring one-on-one since my undergraduate days. At the university I tutored computer science to foreign students and a blind student. Due to my approach, my fellow tutors were not aware that he was indeed blind, until it was discussed in a staff meeting.
In my career as an IT manager, I tutored computer users, also on a one-on-one basis on the software used at each particular company. I have also tutored friends and family, which is much harder.
I have been tutoring, off a... ... More
