Harry really helped excel Matteo from a low grade to top of the class in mandarin in Pre K  in just 1 year! We were late to Mandarin and were advised to get a tutor. Thank goodness for Harry, he is excellent with his teaching and uses lots of fun sports and educational games to make each session feel like a play date! Matteo considers him as a friend and so enthusiastic and encourage by Harry! 

Georgia / Avenues

Just writing to let you know that after many hours in 孙老师’s class and more flashcards than I can count, I was able to score a 5 on the AP Chinese exam! I really cannot thank you enough for putting me on this path in a subject I am so deeply passionate about. Earlier this summer my family and I traveled to Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and Taipei, where I was able to communicate much more than I had anticipated!
