About Grace
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 ab
ility, 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 worked people have a good understanding of this language.
I can tailor customized lessons to satisfy students’ specific requirements and levels, such as conversational Chinese, retail field Chinese, systematically beginner’s Chinese, etc…
I can teach people Business Chinese as well since I had the law background knowledge from China.
What book series I use the most is to teach high school, college students, and adults Integrated Chinese series.
What I like the most is to teach children because my personality is very active, and I like kids. I like to sing and dance (maybe it shouldn't be called dance, it is just like moving around). I can sing lots of Chinese nursery rhymes.
A committed professional to my work with a sincere, enthusiastic, easygoing, down to earth 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.

About Raquel
Hi!

I have been tutoring students since I was an undergrad back in Spain. While doing so, I realised there are very few better feelings besides the satisfaction of being a part of the improvement of your student's skills and knowledge.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in philology, so I have a deep knowledge on how languages construct themselves and work. Besides, I have a Master's degree in Literary Studies and am currently a PhD student in Literary Studies. But most importantly, I was born in Madrid (Spain) and lived there for over twenty years, so you'll get to learn Spanish and its culture from a truly Madrilenian!

My tutoring approach is based mostly on theory and practice, with a lot of perseverance! I usually like to teach some aspect of the language and then make the student approach it in a practical way. Lessons can be tailor
ed to meet the student's specific needs, though! Each student is different from the rest, and therefore learns in an individual way and at an individual pace. Personal tutoring will always be provided to ensure you're always getting what you need: grammar, vocabulary, fluency, accent...

Raquel is a very meticulous and gifted teacher. She was well prepared from the very first lesson and she always made sure her explanations were clear before moving on. She helped dispel many doubts I carried along in my mind for a long time in Spanish grammar. The classes are fun, friendly, and are aimed at the serious-minded student. Highly recommended.

Hello! Let's make music! I am a recent graduate of Berklee, where I earned my degree in both Jazz Composition and Guitar Performance. Whether you've just picked up the guitar or you are looking to explore a new style, I enjoy motivating my students to learn. Growing up in Brazil, I have a strong background in Samba, Bossa nova and other Latin styles such as Flamenco. With the opportunity to study at Berklee, I took full advantage of studying under renown professors of Jazz and Blues. I enjoy transferring this enthusiasm for music to my students, guiding them toward their goals and having fun along the way. I look forward to hearing from you!
I also perform regularly with my duo www.pattenstreetduo.com

About ali
My name is Ali You, I am a second-year graduate student, and my major is violin performance. In May 2017, I will graduate from Boston University and get my master of music degree.

I’ve begun to study in BU with Professor Bayla Keyes since 2015, in these two years, I’ve learned a lot from her, not only my violin skill, but also a lot of teaching methods.

I got my bachelor degree in Renmin University of China, which is one of the best university in China. I had 24 students before I came to States, several of them won the first prize in different violin competition.

I’m very patient, I have a beautiful smile, of course, and the most important thing is I can teach well. Most of my student can learn very fast and be very happy at the same time. I hope my student to love music instead of just playing the music

I found Ali through Thumbtack where I searched a violin teacher for my 4yrs old daughter. After two lessons, I made a decision to learn together with my daughter. Ali is very friendly and nice and professional. I share the one hour lesson with my daughter with no extra fee charged. Time flexible too! I have been learned for two months, improved very fast after her guide. Recommended!

My daughter and Ali already created a good chemistry on their first lesson (which most of the time took awhile to instill). I couldn't wish for more.

About Guifang
I have more than eight years of language teaching experience. I have learned five languages over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese when I was 19 and I founded my first summer camp in China when I was 20. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planing. Students should get involved in the lesson planing progress.

Interest is the best teacher. When I taught nonnative
Chinese speakers (in China, South Korea and the U.S) Chinese, it seemed it stimulated their curiosity and interest to learn Chinese when cultural elements were introduced--such as characters' origin and visualization, historical contexts and cultural traditions. I hope that approach can also bring you an enjoyable experience learning a new language!

To help you be able to use Chinese, our language learning is mainly through interactive and communicative approaches. Talk! Talk! Talk! Please don't be shy. It's okay to make mistakes. Learning from mistakes is also a very effective way to learn a new language. We can make more contextualized dialogues based on whatever textbook you are using now. Or we can produce functional conversation based on everyday topics that you are interested. Lesson plans are customized and they can be flexible.

Ready to get on the boat and sail on the sea of Chinese? :)

I recognized Guifang's experience as a language educator immediately. She is patient, concise, and clearly enjoys teaching. Her assistance has been crucial to my developing an efficient learning system. I rely on her for refresh and expand my Chinese language skills biweekly. She has way of conveying the subtleties of fluent pronunciation. I did not expect to make so much progress so quickly. Highly Recommend her services!

About Polina
I am a fourth-year student at Brown Univeristy, and I come from Moscow, Russia. I have worked as a tutor of English back home, and I was a German Language Teaching Assistant at Brown last semester, which was really rewarding and challenging and taught me the main thing about language learning - practice! I focus more on the conversational aspects of Russian language, the use of idioms and sayings, jargon, all of it being crucial in everyday conversation. Listening to podcasts and contemporary music, watching internet memes and short videos, reading news reports - I find these methods of improving your language skills to be the most valuable in teaching practice, and the most interesting to most students, because they create an immersion into the everyday life of Russia today.
Despite that I study Philosophy, I have a great passion for Rus
sian Literature since my teenage years, and my greatest crushes are Dostoevsky and Chekhov, not mentioning those 20th century classics, such as Bulgakov, Pasternak, or Brodsky. Russian and Soviet cinema is also incredibly rich and powerful, and I am interested in discussing Russian history as it has been portrayed and thought using the power of the screen.

Masculine & Feminine Spanish Nouns | Test Yourself!
In English, every noun has a neutral gender. This makes it easy to learn, so you really only need to learn the new word and the learning stops there. In Spanish, on the other hand, every single noun is either masculine or feminine. This means that every time you learn a new Spanish vocabulary word, you need to learn its accompanying gender as well. This may appear confusing for beginners, but bear with me! Here are the general rules for determining masculine and feminine Spanish nouns:
