A Chinese language teacher for group lessons?

Mandarin ChineseEwan emails:

After the Bethlehem School District [cut] Chinese instruction, we've been having weekly after-school lessons at our home for a small group of students who wanted to continue. Unfortunately, our teacher has a new job and a new baby, so she isn't able to continue: does anyone know of a good, English-fluent teacher of Chinese who might be interested in conducting such weekly sessions? Thanks!

Even if you don't have a specific person or org in mind, maybe you have some ideas for how Ewan can go about finding someone.

Got a suggestion? Please share!

Someone at the G.L.O.B.E. School in Saratoga might be able to help: http://www.globeschool.org/

Hi there,

I am a NYS certified Chinese teacher. Currently we have afterschool Chinese program in East Greenbush school district. Please visit our website for more information. http://www.lingobean.com

Jim at SUNY Albany is a great guy. I'm not sure if he's interested, but it doesn't hurt to send an e-mail:

If he's not interested he might know someone that is

UAlbany has a department in Asian languages.

I ride every day to work, and also after work for exercise. I love the concept of being a person who happens to ride a bike. There's a level of bike riding, with the high performance gear and sleek clothing, that makes riding seem like its not for everyone. I try to avoid markers like that, and always wear regular clothing/shoes/backpack with dumpy-looking bike. One concession is bike gloves.
