“I am very grateful to Bertrand D Hsu American & Chinese Bicultural Academy for providing my son with an excellent learning environment and professional teachers. Every day they work hard to help every student. My son's English foundation was relatively weak, and the school arranged 1-on-1 tutoring to help him. Through the teacher's guidance, I saw him change from being fearful of learning English to loving learning. He also avoided learning Chinese before and now loves learning Chinese. He is able to proactively complete his daily homework without my prompting and has become more and more interested in learning. Becoming so motivated to learn is where I see his greatest progress that is different from before. I am extremely pleased with his efforts!” –
