About Lin
I have been teaching Chinese and Violin in bay area for years. I am very experienced in customizing private lessons for students of different age. I have got my Master degree in Education in China, with a high school teaching credential. I have passed the violin performance exam Level 10 in China, and played in the first student orchestra in the city. I wish one day I could share all my learning and teaching experiences with you:) If you have any question regarding my course, please contact: lartstutor at gmail or send a message online.

My class is designed in a student-friendly way. I will always discuss your learning goals and expectations at the very beginning; I believe a mutual understanding of the big picture between the student and the teacher will serve a good start. I enjoy exchanging ideas with my students in the class and le
t them dig deeper through this two-way communication. In my class, you can learn with joy, making a steady progress step by step. I will also introduce a most-fit textbook to you, with plenty of supplementary learning materials provided, as well as a customized teaching plan offered based on your goals and learning progress.
Course benefits include:
- 1-on-1, or 1-on-more tailor-made executive private tutoring lessons
- Most flexible option and suited to busy lifestyles
- Having lessons on your preferred timetable
- Focusing solely on your learning requirements and obstacles
- Opportunities to practice in the class with timely feedback

Now I am accepting new students in my private violin / Chinese class.

My high school daughter wanted to learn Chinese. Lynn came highly recommended by a former student of mine. Not only does Lynn customizes her lessons to meet my daughter’s needs, she is patient, kind and understanding. She is professional and knows her subject matter. She makes sure that my daughter is always progressing in her learning. I would highly recommend her.

My son has been taking violin lessons with Lin for 2 years now and he has learned to love music and feel confident while playing in his school orchestra. This is my son's first instrument and now he is the first chair in his 7th grade orchestra! He really enjoys lessons with Lin and she always gives great feedback.

Super pro. Has all the tools for a beginning child: textbook but also story books, posters, images, videos. Sends message with the homework and links to what they did in class. Knows exactly how to start the child with the language, very clear step by step progression. My daughter looks forward to the lesson, so that says it all.

About Drew
As a recent recipient of a Master's Degree in Flute Performance from Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music, Drew Powell is a promising young flutist and highly sought after flute teacher. For 15 years, he has participated in numerous music competitions, festivals, and performance opportunities, both as a soloist and part of ensembles, and actively continues to do so. He is an advocate of the arts and passionate about spreading the gift of music, which has lead him to teach over 30 students (and counting!) in just the past 3 years.

Drew won the 2017 Myrna Brown Artist Competition (an international competition with no age limit) hosted by the Texas Flute Society. He was recently invited to be a guest artist at the 2018 Texas Flute Society Annual Convention, where he taught several masterclasses and gave solo performances.

**My Vision***
I seek students who share a love of learning. I am not looking for the finest musicians or highest IQ's, because those gifts are not required to learn and grow. My greatest experiences as a teacher have come from when I work with students who just want to learn more.

***My Requirements***
I hold my students to high expectations when it comes to practicing. Each week, I give students individual assignments that I know will improve their learning and playing abilities, and I expect those assignments to be fulfilled by the next lesson. A failure to do so will result in frustration for both myself and my student.

However, I know that nobody is perfect, and I myself have had my share of weeks where life happens, and I simply don't progress as much as I would like. As a teacher, I understand this perfectly, and I will always strive to listen to my students, and work with them through their difficulties or struggles.

***What To Expect From Lessons***
I bring a lot of energy to lessons! I am very passionate about teaching and helping students grow, and I make sure to bring that to every lesson. I give concise, direct feedback to students, making sure to give them the information they need to understand how they can achieve their goals and grow.

I am very perceptive of students' feelings, and I take care to be sensitive to their needs each week. My worst fear as a teacher is to cause hurt feelings, so I will do everything in my power to avoid that!

I am an expert in the field of music and the flute, so you can be rest assured that the quality of instruction will be the highest.

My two kids have now had five piano lessons with Drew and we have booked further.
My impression on day one had been that he is highly motivated, energetic and professional. His relative youth combined with authority makes him a great teacher for teens. First impressions were correct.
My kids like him a lot and they are already playing recognizable tunes. :)
I heartily recommend Drew for Flute and Piano.

I teach Italian language to speak with confident and clarity. I'm specialized in teaching grammar and I push my students to speak Italian as much as possible during the lessons in a friendly atmosphere. This is a great way to improve or learn Italian in a reasonable time frame.

About Chen
Hi,

My name is Chen. I teach Mandarin Chinese to non-native speakers of all ages and levels, remotely and locally at Stanford. I received my bachelor's degree in International Relations from Renmin University of China and my master's degree in Social Anthropology from the London School of Economics (LSE). After that I went on study for my second master's degree in Social Sciences at the University of Chicago. After finishing all my coursework at the University of Chicago, I moved to Stanford and is currently working on my MA thesis while translating an anthropology book from English to Chinese.

I am a language learner and lover myself. I have learned French back in high school, and Latin and Greek in College. I have also learned some Danish when I studied as an exchange student in Copenhagen, Denmark. Languages bear upon not only a
group of voices and words, they are the lenses through which the world is perceived and communicated. Learning languages thus equips me with additional perspectives and enriches my understanding of others and myself.

Besides learning languages, I am also passionate about tutoring and find it especially fulfilling to help others achieve confidence communicating in another language. I started tutoring language-related courses in College, such as Mandarin Chinese, Chinese poetry, and English (GRE and TOEFL).

With several years of experience teaching Mandarin Chinese to second-language leaners, I know well the importance of individualized teaching. During our first session, I will ask the student about his/her learning goals and expectations, and tailor my teaching resources to their needs.

I can help you with:
-Test preparation (HSK, among others)
-Overall Mandarin Chinese improvement for any level and all ages (listening, speaking, reading, writing)
-Mandarin Chinese in specific fields (business, tour, the subject you study, etc.)
-Translation from English to Chinese and/or proofreading of Chinese writing
-Introduction to Chinese culture, cuisine, music, history...and all
-Any combination of the above

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any question or need any clarification in any information listed above, or book me if you are ready to get started!

Cheers,
Chen
