What Our Students Say

Harry Keyte is quite simply the best Chinese tutor anyone could possibly hire. He completely changed how our daughter felt about studying Chinese. Many Chinese tutors have excellent Chinese skills, but are not good teachers; Harry is most certainly both.


Our daughter was enrolled in an extremely rigorous Chinese program at a very competitive New England prep school. Many of the students in her class were native Chinese speakers and our daughter had dyslexia to boot. Her Chinese study, with a native Mandarin teacher, was overwhelming and frustrating. Harry completely turned things around for her, and now our daughter is even looking forward to studying Chinese in college! Harry is an extremely knowledgeable Chinese tutor, but he also is a super kind and clear teacher. He is very effective and worth every penny. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Our Community

Manhattan Mandarin loves to foster a community with our students, students' families, and schools. We host Mandarin-related cultural events and educational experiences in all of our locations. Studying with Manhattan Mandarin means you are joining our international family!


After School Clubs

We love running our After School clubs! Each week we bring the language and culture of China to over 100 students at more than a dozen of the best private and public schools in NYC and beyond.


Our After School classes are typically for students in K-6, broken down into K, 1-3, and 4-6; however, please be sure to contact the After School Director at your child's school as programs do vary.


Classes and curriculums remain flexible throughout the semester. Our youngest beginner students learn through games, songs, and activities, while our advanced students learn through more rigorous elements that involve reading, writing, and making more formal conversation. The ultimate goal of the program is to establish a solid language foundation upon which to build in the future, and to instill in our students a lifelong interest in Mandarin and Chinese culture.

Private Lessons

Private tutoring sessions are conducted in-home, in-office, at our Wework location, or any location requested by the student. These lessons can serve to supplement in-school Mandarin, to provide homework-help, to help with HSK or GCSE preparation, or to provide a student with a full, out-of-school Mandarin course. As founders Jamie and Harry Keyte know from their personal experiences of learning Mandarin as a second language, there is no limit to what can be achieved with one-on-one lessons.
