*Group conversations in action are conducted by two teachers. Students should inform Hey Ren Tutors of what they would like to focus on or need help with, and Hey Ren Tutors will cater the lessons to the student wants/needs. Everything starts with a conversation.


Hey Ren Tutors works with the following groups:

  • College students looking to work on their English conversation or writing skills

  • Adults seeking to develop their conversational skills through interactive based conversations

  • High school students who need help preparing for and getting into study abroad institutions/experiences abroad, and speech training.

  • Foreigners who want survival and introductory Mandarin lessons in a friendly/laid back environment.  

The key to language learning is confidence. Through teamwork, preparation, and communication we strive to ensure all of our students progress at levels most comfortable and effective for them.
With our wide range of experience working with children, students, and adults, we approach our craft with care, and make adjustments to our experiences so that they best suit the unique learning style that each individual has. Books are great, but we take a practical approach to learning languages via situational learning and focusing on teaching things you’ll actually need and should know in order to be successful speakers and writers of English and mandarin. We have fun and work together to ensure each student gets the absolute most out of each and every interaction.
