"Byron has been a really essential part of this journey for me, because he is an excellent instructor. I am not sure if I would continue learning the language if it wasn’t for him."

- Ailin Kojima

"I started studying Chinese with Byron in 2011, [...] my level was very good. Byron was extremely helpful in helping my reading capability, pronunciation, and my general language capability."

- Tom Moore

"He [Byron] is able to integrate a lot things into your study plan and and your lessons. And that’s going to be a godsend if you’re trying to really learn Chinese in a manner that’s going to allow you to integrate in society, to do business, or even just to go to dinner with people…"

- Darnell Dawson

"I had taken classes before Byron. I had a brief course of taking Mandarin on the computer in the Beijing Learning School through the internet. That was a complete failure…I’ve had personal teachers in New York that were also disasters…And that’s why Byron is so great…His Mandarin is the best, he speaks English verily, and he’s a great teacher."

- Andrew E. Levine, M.D.
