About Us

Our goal at Stride Mandarin is to create the highest quality, most affordable Mandarin tutoring program for kids.

Hi, I'm Katie Li; mom of 2 and non-native Mandarin speaker working to raise my children bilingual.  I founded Stride Mandarin in hopes of creating more affordable tutoring solutions for families on a budget.  Since founding the company in 2020, I've worked with amazing Mandarin teachers from all over the world to create programs that are more than just sit-and-repeat classes; our classes provide an immersive, interactive environment right in your living room and include free resources for your kid to continue learning outside of class.  Thank you so much for your support as we work together to raise bilingual children (at an affordable rate).
