Kyle Chen is a great professor. She is very funny and is enthusiastic about teaching. She is great at explaining Chinese sentence patterns and grammar. She also incorporates lots of funny analogies that are relevant to American culture. Not only is my Chinese improving, but I'm also having a lot of fun learning. I definitely recommend Kyle Chen.


San Francisco, CA

Chen laoshi was my TA for Chinese 303 at San Francisco State University, and classmate in some of the graduate courses I took as an undergrad: she's wonderful! She's very nice and friendly which meant I always felt comfortable speaking Chinese to her as a learner. As a TA, not only did she create classroom materials and lesson plans that were fun, but they also helped us understand complex aspects of grammar with ease. I've studied Chinese for 10 years and have had a lot of different Chinese teachers: Chen laoshi is one of the best! Her enthusiasm for teaching Chinese, professional knowledge, and willing to help others makes her a very special teacher. I wholeheartedly recommend her!


From Kyle Chen Chinese Tutor Facebook Page

Kyle is an exceptional Chinese Tutor. I took weekly lessons with her for a year to increase my limited vocabulary, as well as reading, writing, and conversational skills. As an American Born Chinese, attending Chinese school growing up was not enough! Not only is she kind, friendly, and funny, she is extremely organized/detailed and will devise your lesson material based on your individual learning needs. She is great with kids as well. Thanks Kyle

Main focus is on getting the lesson across to the student. Very observant in what students need and excellent at explaining grammar clearly. Creates mini games that get students to engage with each other while practicing Chinese from the current lesson.
