About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I enjoy tutoring (doing it ever since I was in high school for my classmates) and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!

Had played piano when I was young, and missed playing it. Bill is an excellent motivator and helped me enjoy practicing again and playing new pieces!

I have been teaching Chinese for over 5 years. I was born and raised in China, Beijing. I came to the U.S. for a Master's degree three years ago. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to greet and hold easy conversations in Chinese and as time goes on you'll be able to communicate of all subjects in a deeper level. I have expertise in all levels of Chinese teaching, including business conversation and travel conversations. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Vivien

Hi, nice to meet you!

I hold a Master degree of Music in Flute Performance from The Ohio State University and a Bachelor degree in Music Performance from Minzu University of China.

As a winner of the University of Central Oklahoma Concerto Competition, I played the Mozart Flute Concerto in D Major as a soloist with the UCO Symphony Orchestra.

I am capable of teaching students at all levels, and all music styles: Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary. My lesson often included warm-up, etude, repertoire, theory, and orchestral excerpts.

Please don’t hesitate contacting me! I’m happy to answer all questions!

Vivien is excellent at addressing issues in my playing, while also encouraging me to continue to do well what she deems good playing. She has a positive attitude every lesson and I always feel invigorated to practice more afterwards and put forth more energy into music. I am grateful to have a teacher that challenges me and gives me confidence in my skills.

I am a professional cellist with more than 20 years of performing experience and teaching professionally for more than 10 years. I completed my Master of Music at Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Music with a scholarship. Additionally, I received a Professional Studies Diploma which is the highest level of performance at The New School Mannes School of Music which is a top conservatory in New York with scholarship as well.

I am performing with top orchestras at the notable concert venues in the US every year, such as Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center as both soloist and principal cellist with various orchestras. Now I am the principal cellist of The Asian Cultural Symphony Orchestra. In 2017, I presented and produced my own charity recital at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall with not only classic music with piano but

also trios with Chinese traditional instruments for the world premiere pieces which composed by the famous Chinese composers. All the proceeds of the concert are donated to UNICEF. My charity concerts tour spread across more than a dozen states and cities of the US. I have been interviewed and reported by newspapers, magazines, news, TV programs and other media at home and abroad.

"very pleasant ,professional and knowledgeable , in her teaching approach. highly recommended. I only wish, she was going to be in the states, a few more y
ears. to teach my daughter."

TJ
"I was taking Chinese at university level, but my professor was very fast paced and I didn't get much practice speaking. That's why I loved taking lessons
with Zhenni! She's very thorough - correcting my grammar, tones or pronunciation whenever I make a mistake so that I don't develop bad habits. She also supplied a lot of additional insight into how modern people speak Chinese, so that I would sound more authentic and not just repeat lines I learned from a text book. Zhenni is also very personable and easy to talk to, which I found really helped me not be so self conscious when she would ask me to have a conversation in Chinese."

"Monique is a very patient and kind teacher. She is very nice but challenging and makes sure that her student understands the concept before moving on."
Taeyup Kim
"Kelvin was very kind and supportive of what I wanted to accomplish. I look forward to continuing on my Chinese lessons with him."
Ishaan
"My son is enjoying his Chinese classes. Matt knows how to teach to young kids and has made it a fun learning environment. There has been very good improv
ement in just 3 classes. His mid week revision is something very valuable as a tool to grasp a new subject."
...
Jack
"Miss Ge is a very professional and passionate teacher. I had her Mandarin lesson online and she helped me to fall in love with language learning just like
she has promised. To me, the most important thing of language learning is to trigger and maintain interest and she did it. I would highly recommend her to everyone."
