Mastering the fundamentals is essential to language learning. I focus on building a strong foundation of accurate sounds and tones, using familiar examples to make connections stick. Step by step, we cover everyday essentials, including numbers, colors, greetings, and phrases and expressions that will help you feel confident in Chinese-speaking environments.

My 8-year-olds daughter has some minor learning delays, Maggie is very understanding & patient with her. She engages and makes the sessions fun. My daughter thinks she’s awesome and enjoys her sessions with Maggie.
Isabel R.
Maggie is a great teacher! I have only spent 3 sessions with her and I am making great progress. She's very patient and skilled. Her positivity encourages me and helps my advancement. I learn a lot from one lesson and I am excited to take more.
Flordeliza C.
Maggie is an awesome piano teacher! It has been 7 years since my last piano lesson and Maggie took over recently. I didn't have much confidence in myself, but I guess she saw potential in me. My former teacher was keen on using children's piano books for me because she thinks, despite being an adult, those teaching materials are the most appropriate for my level. But Maggie had me playing Hanon right away. It was intimidating, but definitely helped me build confidence in myself! I feel so empowered playing the piano now. :) She's also very flexible. My schedule is all over the place right now due to schoolwork, but she's able to accommodate me still. I highly recommend her!

First lesson for my 11 year old son with Christina. She has a very nice studio that my son was very comfortable in. She identified his level and sent him home with much more difficult pieces than his previous teachers. He has been practicing more because it is more difficult but also he seems to enjoy the challenge which she created for him. Thanks Christina, I am looking forward to watching him progress under your guidance.

Such a wonderful teacher ! Christina is kind and so patient with kids who are learning music. She is so smart and her knowledge in music is amazing. My daughter has progressed significantly in the last few months with Christina , at a much better pace than all her previous years learning with other tutors. She is training my daughter for ABRSM exam too . Christina has great communication skills and always lets us know the ways to help kids learn better. Her positivity and graceful presence has made my daughters passion for music increase immensely !! Great teacher !!! Highly recommended!!

Private Mandarin Teacher

I have more than nine years of language teaching experience. I have learned five languages over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese when I was 19 and I founded my first summer camp in China when I was 20. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.
