We are in need for a Mandarin instructor to teach 6 homeschooled children. The kids are between the ages of 3-11 and have no experience with the language. They are open to splitting up the older and younger kids to have two lessons but ideally would like to have one lesson where the younger kids observe. The instructor should have experience teaching young children. The family lives in Medford, MA and are hoping for in-home lessons but would be open to meeting someplace. The goal is for the kids to slowly learn the language so they can read and speak with confidence over time. They would love to have lessons on Saturdays from 8-10am or 3-5pm. For people who are interested, please contact Angela Kerns <email@example.com>.
