"I've been teaching Chinese for 15 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Chinese culture, study abroad in Asia, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!
Chinese language learning materials as part of an integrated curriculum designed to motivate students in non-native Chinese environments to start speaking Chinese.

Kelvin is a very patient teacher! I knew absolutely nothing about mandolin or music and Kelvin has helped with that. I have a long way to go but, with Kelvins help I believe I can get there!
I highly recommend Kelvin!!!!!

When we were looking for a piano teacher for our 13yo daughter we were looking for someone who could also help her out with her church music as she is the "organist" during school masses. Kelvin was more than willing to do so. She has learned more in four lessons with Kelvin than she did in more than two years with a another teacher. Kelvin is very patient and makes each lesson fun. At the same time he is demanding without being strict. We are all very pleased with Kelvin's method of teaching. We highly recommend him.

I majored in Mandarin Chinese back in college (many years ago...) and also studied Chinese at Tunghai University (东海大学). I have excellent pronunciation, and can help you also master Mandarin pronunciation, as well as grammar and sentence structure.

Ian has a great way of developing musicality and diligence in our active 9-year old boy while somehow keeping lessons lighthearted and fun. Our son genuinely looks forward to his lesson every week.

I have been teaching and tutoring Chinese language for a long time. I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker with a master degree. I have been teaching Mandarin Chinese in a very good summer camp since 2013. I had taught at a university over 2 years, and taught in a language workshop for children as well. I had the Teacher Certificate from China. I can help people prepare for the AP Chinese Language and Culture Exam too.A committed professional with a sincere, enthusiastic, easygoing personality.
I like teaching. That students improve day by day is my biggest happiness. You will have a happy time to learn Chinese very well if choosing me as your tutor.
