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.

After School Mandarin Clubs

We love running our After School Mandarin Clubs! Each week we bring the language and culture of China to over 500 students at more than 40 of the best private and public schools in NYC and beyond.

 

Our After School Mandarin Clubs are typically for students in reception and years 1-6, and vary according to age groups; 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.
