About Joy
I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading, writing, and speech.

Photography has been one of my main areas of focus for over ten years. I am trained in both film and digital formats and specialize in demystifying the DSLR so that you gain a good understanding of manual settings and how to use each to improve your photos.

Caring, compassion, and understanding are essential for learning and I strive to do my best in these areas.

Has so far taught me so much about Mandarin and is a really great teacher and if you want to learn Mandarin then this is the teacher you should choose to learn it.

Joy is lovely and has been very flexible with my schedule. You can tell she loves photography and enjoys teaching. If I was more of an online learner I would have rated the session a 5. I am now realizing I am more of a hands on person it is personally challenging for me to learn using this method. In an ideal world we would be learning by shooting in real time.

About Jean-Luc
Dear Learners
My name is Jean-Luc, I am from the Loire Valley in France and have broad experience in teaching French at various levels (beginners to AP French, DELF and DALF) for numerous years. Based on the belief that a better world for all can be achieved through better communication, my mission has sought to improve language skills and cultural understanding for people of all ages and professions. If you want to learn or improve your French, I can help you with my French Language Training. I customize my classes and offer tutoring options to suit individual needs. My experience and skills combined with the Tutoring Live online enables my students to start speaking French from the very first session. I adapt the lesson to my student, even if sometimes it requires re-examining what was initially planned. I will be very happy helping y
ou with yours needs.

Outstanding instructor, professionally gifted, helpful, patient and personable. I was fortunate to have found Elisabeth to teach my 9 year old son how to play the violin. Her teaching style was a perfect match for him and she was able to keep him motivated to play and improve and also achieve his goal of making the junior orchestra for his school.

I am a working musician (my band performs >50 times in a year) in the Philadelphia area. I play piano, electric piano and hammond organ. With my band, I play Funk, New Orleans, Classic Rock and Blues and I also perform piano solo in Jazz, Pop/Rock and Blues.

I have been playing keys for over 20 years and graduated from Berklee College of Music with a major in Jazz Composition and Music Production & Engineering. I have taught students, teenagers, adult and small children as young as 5 years old. My teaching is focused on stylistic piano playing (chord playing, improvisation, transposition) for students over 10 years with at least 1 year continuous piano training. I certainly welcome piano training for beginners as early as preparatory level. A baby grand piano is available at my house for piano tutoring should you choose to come to my l
ocation.

My graduate study was in Acoustics. I am an acoustical consultant and also an audio engineer. I specialized in room acoustics and electro-acoustics (loudspeaker design). I have a studio at home and open to audio tutoring (recording and mixing) request as well.

I am originally from Indonesia and have already published two books. I can help with Indonesian language tutoring for English native speakers. I have done many seminars/workshops both in English and Indonesian,

I welcome tutoring requests in Music (Piano, Composition/Arranging), Music Theory, Music Production or other Audio/Acoustics related topics.

From the time I was about 12, I knew that I wanted to be a teacher. It's the only thing I've ever wanted to do, and the only thing I've ever done. I taught Russian for 31 years at the University of Missouri-Columbia, and now that I'm a Professor Emeritus, I miss the classroom and want to teach as much as possible.
