About Ling Ming Mandarin

At Ling Ming Mandarin, we believe learning a new language should be fun and inspiring. Our team of instructors are highly qualified industry veterans who take pride in their work. We love awakening the natural curiosity in our students and helping them become lifelong learners. It is our job to provide a supportive and engaging learning environment for students of all levels. Our greatest joy is in helping students develop confidence in their own abilities.

Through learning a new language, students will be exposed to a distinctly different culture, values, and way of thinking. The benefits go far beyond the practicality of knowing another language. We believe the best approach to mastering Mandarin is to cultivate a sense of the language, which is unique and unlike any other language in the world.

  • “I have been fortunate enough to be tutored by Ling over the past 8 months and cannot recommend her enough! If you are looking for a tutor who really caters to your learning needs, look no further. Ling is everything you could want in a language tutor--patient (extremely), creative, encouraging and overall she makes the difficult task of learning a new language loads of fun.”

  • “(With Ling) I was brushing up on my reading mostly, and we covered mostly political and economic topics. These topics I would never have been able to read about before. I must have learned hundreds and hundreds of characters/phrases. Ling is encouraging, patient, and adapts her teaching style to the way you learn best. ”
