"Hong Zhou has been teaching my daughter Mandarin for a while now and has inspired a passion in not only the language itself, but also the Chinese people, history and culture.
The ability to work with and inspire someone and to get them to believe that they can do something, which to them initially appears so different and potentially impossible, and make it interesting and create a sense of progress, achievement and passion is a tremendous skill.
The enthusiasm that Jo brings to her teaching and her ability to connect with and make the whole learning of a Mandarin a joy to my daughter makes her a very special teacher"
"I truly enjoyed Hong Zhou's teaching and highly recommend her as a Mandarin teacher "
