"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 was a nice guy but not very good at listening. You can tell he is probably good at SEO, but is more geared towards giving multiple lessons, because he will not answer any questions if its not in the order he is teaching. Being a teacher myself, you have to LISTEN to the person paying for the lesson. You should not tell a paying customer that you wont answer a question because you will get to that at a later time in a different lesson. Some people, like myself understand many aspects of SEO already, and just need to ask some questions to learn new things to try.

Kelvin did give me a couple very good tips I will implement.

You could be a very good teacher my friend, just listen more

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!!!!!

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.

An experienced, patient, sweet and funny Chinese tutor to all levels and ages, I have been teaching and tutoring Chinese language over 10 years. I am originally from China, a native Mandarin Chinese speaker with a master degree.
I studied in a law school, got my master degree and lawyer license, also passed the Mandarin Proficiency Test, achieved the College Teacher Certificate and worked in a college to teach law and culture related subjects when I was in China.
After came to America, I had taught in a university, and a language workshop for children. At present, I teach Chinese in a summer camp of a very good private school. So you see, my students are from toddlers to adults. One parent praised me that I am a great story teller.
I can help students from primary to college improve their listening, speaking, reading, and writing ability, and achieve a high score in their final Chinese test.
I can help students prepare for the AP Chinese Language and Culture Exam.
I can help ...

My daughter (9 yrs old) has been taking lessons with Grace, and she loves it. Grace is patient, clear, and makes lessons fun and interesting. My daughter likes the one on one interactions with Grace more than in a classroom setting (1 teacher and a dozen kids).

I am both patient and enthusiastic as a teacher. I speak Mandarin Chinese as my native language, and can help my students progress to a high level. Once I have determined the student's level, I work with them to help them improve according to their goals.

I am a native speaker and have professional level in both speaking and writing Chinese. My articles were on newspaper when I was in high school in China. I am a business school student majoring in accounting, I am fluent with English and I can also teach Chinese in professional areas such as math, accounting, management and so on. I promise that I won't charge any if the student is not satisfied.

She is really nice and has a lot of patience. She explains how to pronounce the words really well. She doesn't only teach the words but also the history behind them and the way modern people use them and Chinese things. In all, we are 100% satisfied with her and my daughter has learned and is learning a lot.

She is really nice and professional. We also chatted a lot by using both English and Chinese. She is patient, even though I asked her to repeat sentences several times. I definitely recommend her.

I'm doctoral candidate of BLCU China, major in literature. I also have the teaching proficiency certificate of TCSOL(Teach Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages). I can help students improve their fluency, natural usage of grammar, vocabulary and idiomatic expressions as well as writing ability. I can also help students prepare for the HSK test. I’m fluent in English. I am efficient, easy going, and with good personality. You won't be disappointed to learn Chinese with me!

Abby was incredible! She did a fantastic job explaining and teaching and had amazing tips to help aid in my learning of the subject. She even went as far as to extending our time limit until she felt that was was comfortable enough with the given material for that lesson. Abby clearly goes the extra mile for her students and I would recommend her to anyone.
