I had a pair of great students who I am very proud of. They are a couple who are learning Mandarin together from the very beginning. After ten 90-minute lessons, they made an amazing achievement. Of course they were working very hard by themselves as well. Here is a sentence from the email I received recently: " I hope you'll be delighted to hear that I've been using my Mandarin with taxi drivers, receptionists, assistants and hotel staff during Shanghai business trip." Please see my student's testimony for more information.

We were lucky enough to find Landy on this site and have found her tuition to be outstanding. She makes a real effort to understand her pupils' objectives and needs beforehand, structures lessons beautifully and ensures that lessons move at a rapid pace. I have found it pretty astounding how much we've been able to learn in such a short space of time; especially astounding given how difficult it is for a native English speaker to learn a language with a vastly different alphabet, structure and grammar.
In addition (and perhaps as importantly as the quality of the lessons), learning with Landy is a huge amount of fun: she is exceptionally friendly and has a great sense of humour and I've enjoyed our weekly interactions thoroughly. I would highly recommend Landy if you're seeking to learn Mandarin.
Landy was my chinese teacher in London for 6 months in 2013. Quite simply she was one of the best teachers I have had. She prepared meticulously for the lessons, always finding interesting material for us to read and talk about - and gave the lessons a sense of purpose and pace. At the same time she listened to what I wanted to achieve and my thoughts on how we should structure the lessons, and helped me create attainable goals so that I felt I was making real progress.
I felt the lessons were truly tailored just for me. I would recommend Landy to anyone looking for a Mandarin teacher.
