Private Lessons

Manhattan Mandarin’s Private Tutoring Program is uniquely tailored to our clients’ needs. Each student begins with a free trial lesson to establish his or her personal learning objectives. Our experienced tutors will work within each student’s timeframe to meet these objectives and help develop personalized study strategies.

Our tutors work with over 150 private students weekly and know the curricula at schools such as Avenues, Trinity, Collegiate, etc inside and out. We have created programs for sports leagues, law firms, banks, etc. and have had the pleasure of bringing several of these businesses over to China.
