*** Lesson Details ***
First, I need to talk to my students about their goals. Not only for the adult, teacher also need to know what kids want to know about music. They are interested in it sometimes, they just don't know. Second, I will let them know, interests is just the first step. If you want to learn, you have to pay! Pay your patient, and your endeavor. I will teach in some specific ways to motive students to approach the goals. for example: listen, singing, playing, reading is the process to make the students catch the goal faster without lost their interests! So involve more activities in the lessons is very important! Also, serious technique practice is necessary. As I mentioned before, not only interests, if you want to learn , you have to pay. Once you catch your goal, you will feel happy that the teacher has been pushed you for some boring finger exercise.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I do have a grand piano at home.For violin students, they should have their own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki style, classical, contemporary, modern music

It's been 3/4 year since we've been with her, and she is absolutely awesome! She totally earned my daughter's respect. Meeting a right teacher is so important because it took some time to correct the bad habit she aquired and continued that her previous teacher let go. Ms. Kan is absolutely one of the best teacher we had so far!

Kan seemed very qualified and the first lesson or so went well with the exception of hearing her child cry on and off throughout the lesson and make an appearance on camera as well. We tried to be understanding. Unfortunately we learned she has quite a temper. Our Internet went down and caused problems in our Skype connection. We tried to contact her and Skype said she was unavailable. It took some time to unravel it. When we finally got back in touch with Kan 16 minutes after the lesson started, instead of listening and understanding that we had technical problems, she yelled at us and kept brandishing her phone at the camera to "prove" that she was ready for the lesson. She barely let us get a word in. She very firmly told us we would be paying for the lesson and continued to hold her phone up to the camera. We wanted to just continue the lesson in it's shortened form, but she refused to put her phone down and kept talking over us. Our goal was to remedy the situation; after this, we wanted nothing further to do with Kan. She upset our daughter and that's the end of that. Be warned.

I'm a native Mandarin speaker without any accent as I'm from Beijing region. I have a certificate of PSC: Putonghua Proficiency Test Level 1(The highest level). Online class is available too.

About Jessica
My name is Jessica. I have been teaching Chinese since I moved to Paris in 2007. Now I am living in Santa Clara, California and I still have a huge passion to teach and spread the Chinese Culture.

For adult students I usually help them with General / Business Chinese (Speaking, Accent Reduction, Listening, Writing and HSK/AP Test) and Life in China.

For kids I help them with their Chinese homework and also college students to pass their school exams. I teach all from beginner to advanced levels. If you are a Native French speaker I can also teach you Chinese in French as I speak it fluently.

I give Individual Private Classes or Small Group Lessons (2-4 people). I provide a quiet place for class in Santa Clara.
Online class is available too (ask me for online class discount).

I also help people to practice their French con
versation and grammars (beginner to intermediate level).

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

My husband and I had a great experience taking beginning Chinese lessons with Monique. We didn't know a lick of Chinese, and now we feel pretty comfortable with basic communication. We're moving to Beijing next month, so Monique was great at tailoring our lessons to our specific needs (for instance, restaurant, airport, and "getting around" vocab). She's a great, patient teacher and is very flexible with scheduling.

I can teach in the best way~!

About ali
My name is Ali Y, I graduated from Boston University with a master degree in 2017. Before I graduate, I started to teach violin and Mandarin in Takelessons, as you can see in my reviews, I have a very high rating since I started, every student like to play violin with me because I always can see their smile in the lesson.

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 the States, several of them won the first prize in different violin competition.

I’m very patient. And I know how to commute with students. Most of my student can learn very fast and be very happy at t
he same time. I hope my student to love music instead of just playing the music.

I have been living in China for 22 years before I came to the US, I want to help every students who wants to learn Chinese or want to improve their level of Chinese.

About Nan
I started to learn the violin since I was 3 years old. My mom chose this beautiful instrument for me, she thought it's convenient to carry. I came to America after I finished my music education degree in China, then I studied two years in the US for my Master's degree in violin performance. After I got my Master's degree, I found out there are still a lot more space I want to improve, so I came to California to continue my violin study and I got my Artist Diploma in violin performance. I played hundreds of concerts, including chamber and symphony concerts. I have given 5 violin solo concerts in the past years. I have been playing with the professional symphony orchestras. For the violin, no matter which area you want to improve, I can give you the most useful and effective suggestions to help you improve fast.
