I am a native Chinese speaker. I can speak five languages. I have years of languages (Chinese & English) teaching experience. I am certified to teach in public schools in China. I believe interaction and immersion are effective approaches to learn a new language. Learning a new language with a native speaker is ten times efficient than learning from language apps. Lessons are customized. Communicative language and Chinese culture would be prioritized while making lesson plans. To learn a new language, it's not simply about the language itself. The more you know about the culture, the better you appreciate the language.

I teach K-8 grades students Chinese speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation through presentations, visual arts, songs and other various types of activities. I also run a after school Chinese club. Other than m

Ms. Xue makes learning Mandarin fun for my kids (4th and 6th grade) and really focuses on ensuring that they understand the topic at hand before moving on to the next lesson. She also focuses on positive reinforcement which my kids (and most people) thrive under. I would highly recommend Ms. Xue for you!
Gitanjali J.
Guifang is an excellent teacher. She goes above and beyond in her coaching, ensuring the kids enjoy the language. She ensures the kids continue to practice in between classes by giving them regular homework. I highly recommend her!

Guifang is an excellent teacher. her classes are well organized with step-by-step lessons. We have been using her services for our 9-year old daughter for the past few months and actually increased the frequency to 2 classes a week. She also makes the lessons fun, which is quite critical for children.

"UNLEASH THE POWER OF YOUR SPEAKING VOICE"
My intense accent reduction personal voice/speech makeover lessons will help reduce accents, and improve weak, thin or harsh, irritating voices. If you drop consonants, mumble, do not correctly open your jaw to make proper sounds, or fear speaking in public, I will teach you the solutions.

Speakers of other languages will learn the use of proper American diction, enunciation and pronunciation of all words. Clear, clean accents are the goal, so that you are clearly understood by all, and speak with renewed confidence...without fear. .

Study is easy. I will forward to you, in advance, each lesson via email that we will work on for each session. Then, we'll meet with my live interactive lessons that let us view each other in real time. That means instant teacher/student feedback and quick vocal improvement.

This one-on-one personal voice makeover gives you the basic tools to improve your overall voice, speech and sound. ...

Got a great idea of what I was doing right and wrong with my public speaking.

I am very pleased with the voice lessons Bill has given me.
Thank you!
Jane
Taking lessons with Bill has improved my speaking voice tremendously. I have been taking six sessions in a row now, 1 lesson each week (30 or 45 min sometimes) and the lessons taught me control over my voice, finding the right pitch naturally (so that I have even no effort speaking in a busy loud restaurant) and just really starting to love my voice and what kind of voice I really have without these habitual restrictions I had. I was nervous sometimes as part of the exercises were to make sounds you usually don't do, but he teaches in such a loving professional way, just show a bit of your hidden "actor talent" :) and I believe you will soon see the progress. Thank you so much, Bill!

The 9 Most Popular Kanji Tattoos

When you're taking Japanese lessons, you will be introduced to the three different writing systems: hiragana, katakana, and kanji. Although kanji is generally considered the most difficult to learn, because of the symbols, it's the most popular writing system among non-Japanese speakers. Kanji consists of thousands of characters which were derived from the Chinese writing system. Because of the way they look, and the fact that they can convey a meaningful message in a limited amount of ch …
