I work very closely with clients. I think I posted on another video, but I am not able to find my comments. Dui bu qi! I was hoping a video about assisting clients could be made, how to greet clients, how to ask information (what they need, if they have an appointment) and express directions such as please sit down, or please wait for a moment. 

For now, I would be happy with some translated expressions! Ni keyi bang wo ma? 

Feichang gan xie! I love your videos!

Hi yaquicuevas1984,
Thanks for your good suggestions! To greet clients, I think you can take a look at these lessons.

To express please sit down, you can say "qǐng zuò."
Please wait for a moment in Chinese is "qǐng shāo děng." And you can also take a look at this lesson:

Hope these will help you. And will make more videos about appointments in the future.

不客气(bú kèqi)。
You'd better say "谢谢你的回复(xièxie nǐ de huífù)," thanks for your reply. Or "谢谢你的工作(xièxie nǐ de gōngzuò)," thanks for your work.  We don't put a adjective after 谢谢.
"我学的每一天!" is not correct. I think your sentence should be "我每天都学(wǒ měitiān dōu xué)," which is "I study everyday." Is that what you want to say?

If you wanted to say "I need help with chinese" would it be Wǒ xūyào bāngzhù Zhōngwén?

We often say "帮助+somebody" or "帮助+somebody+do something." So you'd better say "我(wǒ)需要(xūyào)你(nǐ)帮助(bāngzhù)我(wǒ)学(xué)中文(zhōngwén)."
