What Parents Say

"We have been scheduling PandaTree Chinese lessons roughly twice a week over the past nine month. Our daughter was 5.5 years old when we started. She LOVES her lessons and really looks forward to seeing her tutor, who is kind, caring, and engaging. The tutor often adjusts lessons spontaneously to accommodate interests and questions that pop up from a curious young child. The kids hub is well designed with fun games to reinforce learning and audio to help a non-native speaking parent navigate new vocabulary."

- Gabriele

"My 8 year-old son has been using Panda Tree for Chinese for nearly one year. He has developed so much confidence with his expressive communication. During each Panda Tree session I hear him bursting with laughter, but I also see him following lesson plans, learning to type in Pinyin, reading characters, and enjoying topics that are of interest for him. It is the perfect blend of learning and fun. With each session his tutor is so personal. She asks him how his week/day has been. She remembers his activities, his family members, his interests, and more. She feels like a member of our family!"

- Katie

"My daughter has been learning Chinese through PandaTree for about four months. She is 5 years old and REALLY likes the teachers. She grew up China for three years but forgot her Mandarin. With PandaTree the teachers move at a pace that fits her previous learning. A lot of companies stick to one lesson a session, but with PandaTree the teachers speed up or slow down based off how fast she can pick up the lesson. I absolutely love the teachers and the website interface. We did many demos with other companies and settled with PandaTree and do not regret it."

- Ashley

"My high school daughter has used PandaTree over the last few years, but most recently did AP Mandarin tutoring. I believe that PandaTree AP tutoring was a major factor in my daughter's achievements in her AP class. She was well prepared for the AP exam and was recognized by her Mandarin teacher as the Outstanding Student of the Year for her improvements this year."
