In my early childhood, I inherited from my grandparents a photo-album of Beijing in the late nineteenth century. This album was my first exposure to Chinese culture. Those large sepia photos on thick glossy paper with their bewitching images of people and scenes beyond the realm of my daily experience and imagination, sparked an eager curiosity that years later led me to spend two and a half years exploring Chinese language and culture as an exchange student at Beijing University, and to retu...

Ilana was extremely responsive and informative in initial communications. She then came to the first lesson prepared and with a plan. She demonstrated both advanced skills in Mandarin language as well as Chinese culture. Even more important to us was her ability to both express these ideas as well as understand the challenges of learning these concepts. Ilana is obviously a talented and experienced educator with the ability to fit in with whatever talent level her students come to her with. We were extremely happy and impressed with her both personally and academically.

We chose Ilana based on her education and experience as a teacher. What we got was much more. She clearly cares about her students and their success. Ilana prepares carefully for lessons, is prompt and flexible. She adjusted the pace of her teaching to our son's needs (very fast, in our case) and, most importantly, they get along well and are highly productive together. She is engaging and is able to keep our son's attention for the entire 1.5 hour session. Ilana is fantastic and we recommend her without reservation.

Ilana is very reliable and flexible in scheduling sessions, and works extremely well with our middle-school-age son. He respects her and likes her and she has helped him make great strides with his language study, even in a short time. We are very pleased with her!

I was very impressed with my first session with Ilana and her knowledge of the Chinese language, pronunciation and characters. What I was most impressed with was her rigorous approach to teaching language, which isn't always possible from every tutor. It is clear that she has a lot of experience teaching languages.

Ilana was very responsive to our our child's particular interests and needs. She was very professional, friendly, warm, and extremely well-prepared. The lesson was superbly organized and executed.

My two girls 10 and 12 LOVED working with Illana to learn Hebrew. We look forward to her lessons on a weekly basis now!
