Diane is very patient and thorough. She is careful to teach me the foundations of Chinese so I can progress seamlessly. Her lessons are thoughtfully designed and very user friendly. I learn a lot with each lesson and am confident that I will be able to converse when I visit China next.

Diane is very professional, experienced, and kind. She quickly understands what level you are at and creates lesson plans that work for you. I highly recommend her!
- Katie N. from Chicago, IL
Learning sentences, phrases, listening so you can understand words spoken in Chinese, speaking, pronounciation, using accents correctly. Basically learning everything necessary to learn how to speak it and hear it correctly and use it correctly. She makes learning very easy, well-structured and meaningful lessons.

Diane is an excellent tutor for anyone looking to improve their Chinese skills! She briskly adapted our lessons to strengthen areas where I was weakest. She took the time to provide homework and supplementary material when I was interested. She was always on time and regularly stayed longer than the allocated duration.
- Jason M. from Ferndale, MI
Excellent, tailored lesson to my skill level - strong focus on my weaknesses, adapted quickly once she determined my skill level. Very friendly, knowledgeable, etc. Would reccomend

Diane is an insightful and patient tutor who creates a customized learning environment for each of her students that helps his or her Chinese language ability rapidly advance! Lessons are well-planned, super informative, and always fun.
- Zackery F. from Detroit, MI
So much about tutoring is adjusting to the student, and Diane T is amazing. She takes into account the previous and concurrent practice I am doing with audio lessons. And she does extra preparing additional practice recordings for me to use between lessons. Great value.

Diane T. is a sensational tutor for several reasons. As a new student learning the Mandarin language, Diane was very thoughtful and meticulous in her lesson planning, teaching structure, and review. Diane was always well prepared with lesson plans that set a solid foundation for the future. She was also very flexible in her meeting times, understanding when conflicts occurred, and as professional as you?ll find. Polite and respectful are two of the words that come to mind immediately when describing Diane?s character. One of my favorite parts about Diane?s lessons were her teachings around the Chinese culture. She always found a way to tie our current topics to the real world which served me well as I was always curious as to how our lesson linked to the ?Big Picture.? Above all, Diane?s greatest traits are her understanding and ability to keep patience with her student(s). While frequently my pronunciation was unclear and incorrect, or my ability to remember vocabulary words was deficient, Diane ALWAYS remained positive and enthusiastic. I highly recommend any students, young or old, to work with Diane as I hope to sometime again in the future.
