"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.

I purchased 5 lessons for my better half to see if she'd like the instructor. Went for our first meeting during a snowstorm and he was very nice but spent way too much time talking about non guitar related stuff and conversated with me as much as my better half. In any case there were some scheduling issues due to him going to China and later saying he could not do Saturdays all the time which was fine. We scheduled some more sessions. TakeLessons policy for cancellations is 24 hours and that's what he told us while we were there. This cancellation policy was also reflected as 24 hours on his page on TakeLessons. After speaking with a TakeLessons representative (Michael), according to the rep, Kelvin was supposed to have us sign a 48 hour cancellation policy and he never did. As a matter of fact during our first session he said the cancellation was 24 hours himself. Due to another situation we cancelled our next session within the 24 hour cancellation window. We were charged for it and told by him that his cancellation policy was 48 hours and that he had told us this in advance. This was false. I'm disappointed with both Kelvin (who I might add may truly believe that he informed us of his personal policy) and TakeLessons. TakeLessons representative Michael called me and left a message stating that he spoke to Kelvin and because Kelvin said we were informed of the 48 hour policy that they could not do anything about it. Not sure why it's worth lying over $40 but I figure he truly believes that he told us of his policies but he did not. What is more disappointing is that the TakeLessons rep Michael told me that Kelvin made clients sign the 48 hour cancellation policy as a requirement and he never did. Hence he has no record of one. You would think this would automatically be a clear indication that something was not right but they just chose to take his word for it over ours. In any case, buyer beware of dishonestly by Kelvin and operational ineptitude by TakeLessons to implement systems in place to make sure the buyer is protected as well.

Kelvin is very patient. He helped my son get rid of his mental block, and he is very comfortable with drawing now. He is a great teacher!

I was very excited to be taking lessons, I played when I was a little girl, & my husband knew this & bought me a violin for Christmas so I could play again... but I was nervous if I would be able to learn since I'm not young! Mr Lin is a great teacher, he is very patient, & made me feel very comfortable... and I'm teachable! Yeah! I did good... I'm going to keep practicing, and can't wait for my next lesson!

Chinese is my first language, and it is one of the most beautiful language in the world, I know a lot of people feel hesitate about its difficulty to learn, but once you pass the pivotal point, you will love it!!
I have strong ability to read and write Mandarin speedily and fluently. Be able to express and write ideas clearly and logically.
I worked as a copy editor in a newspaper company for one year in China, won the Chinese Solicit Essays (the First Place) in 2004. I have been learn 5 thousand years of Chinese poetry. I have been taught over 20 foreigners in China. I will make it easy for you!

Teach kids Chinese in very funny way make them happy about this amazing language and also give them good foundation knowledge and good grammar.
I do believe that you will enjoy this beautiful language!

My 10 year old niece has had 5 lesson so far on the violin. When I asked her if she wanted to try a different teacher she said "No Way"! She likes the violin and really likes Kan.

If you plan to use Chinese at work, we can focus our lessons around dialogue and vocabulary that relates directly to your job or industry. If you are a student and want to improve your academic performance in Chinese, I can train you to utilize more efficient ways of studying and practicing. If you would like to gain exposure to or build a foundation in Mandarin Chinese, I can also help you accomplish this.
