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.

About Tammy
I am a native Chinese speaker with a BA in English and MBA in Global Management from Thunderbird. I worked as an English to Chinese translator for 2 years in the Ministry of Commerce in Beijing, and volunteered as an interpreter for the City of Austin. During graduate school, I was a Chinese tutor/language partner for a few of my classmates, all of whom made big progress in their fluency and pronunciation.

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.

About Lella
I studied Musicology and Piano Performance at the Shandong Normal University School of Music, where I graduated with my BA in 2005. I taught music and established a band at a property management institute while a student there, and established my own practice after I graduated. I came to the United States in 2013, where I have continued to play piano and have joined a local band. I am happy to continue sharing my love of music with my students here.

I began tutoring Mandarin in January 2015. As a native speaker, I can guide you to a very high level, and help you learn to speak with a proper Chinese accent.

Please note: Online classes are available for Mandarin Chinese only. Piano lessons are only available in person.

We just had our first lesson and we hit a few bumps but my daughter has never had music instruction before so we're giving it another go next week to see if things go more smoothly. 3 stars above says meets expectations, and though it didn't, I just hesitate to give someone 2 stars based on one lesson.
Here are some details from class:
My daughter (K) just turned 5 but is pretty mature for her age and has expressed an interest in learning the piano so we signed up for individual lessons with Lella. At the start of class I mentioned again (I had noted it at booking time as well) that K has had zero experience with music instruction. Immediately Lella sat with K on the piano bench and started explaining treble clef sign, bass clef sign and what hands they relate to. Lella also has a thick accent as I was trying to follow along with her explanations with a little difficulty. She even asked if K speaks Chinese and I said "no" so she said "you're Indian right?" My daughter would look around from time to time while Lella was explaining at which point Lella would just keep seeing "Pay attention sweetie!" Then she asked my daughter to write the numbers 1-5 in a book and when she said she didn't know how to write the number 2, Lella laughed and said "you know, but you forgot right" so I spoke up and explained "no she has not been taught to write her numbers yet, but she can read/recognize them" to which Lella seemed very surprised, so I felt the need to say, "she's still in preschool. But if you write them she'll be able to tell you what they are." So then Lella switched to counts, explaining about the values of different notes. She asked my daughter if she had questions, to which my daughter said "I think I understand what you're saying, if it's just a circle that means four, but if it's a circle with a line..." And before she could finish her thought Lella said "no that's not a line, it's a stem". At another point when Lella asked if she had any questions, my daughter slowly said "yes... what's velour?" And when Lella looked confused I had to step in and explain that Lella was saying "value", the amount of counts for a note. By the end of the half hour lesson, Lella had reached her explanation of middle C, which she described to my daughter saying "this is middle C because it's in the middle, there are two black keys, then on the left is C. Can you find another one?" When K didn't respond right away, she repeated herself, and again another time. So I said "she really has had no previous music experience, I think you need to even explain to her that those are called keys, like there are black keys, white keys..." And Lella just looked at me confused.
At the end of the lesson I agreed to buy the theory book so we can practice that at home, and Lella asked if I can sit in on the next lesson to help explain things to my daughter, because she "doesn't really focus". I agreed to sit in on the lesson, for my own benefit so I can help her with HW since I also don't have music experience. But I also mentioned to Lella that her accent is quite strong and I think my daughter was having trouble understanding her, and Lella seemed surprised by that comment.
I don't know... it says on Lella's profile that she has worked with young kids but I can't really see how the class was any different from how she would teach me, an adult with no prior music experience.
Oh! I forgot to mention something so basic - when we met Lella she thought I was someone else so I re-introduced myself and introduced my daughter. Then as we were saying goodbye at the end of class I realized Lella had never introduced herself to my daughter, so I asked "oh, what would you like K to call you, Ms. Li, or Lella? Ms. Lella?" She said Lella was fine so I turned to K and said "Tell Lella bye K." It just hit me, I mean that's something about creating a relationship with a young student. Speaking to them directly, making that connection. Lella was really smiley which gave the impression she was friendly but she never really made a connection with K who is the student, not me.

Hi everyone, I hope this message finds you well! I am Junling and am a professional pianist working at Boston Conservatory at Berklee. I have been play piano for 20+ years and have a Masters degree in Piano Performance. I love performance, but I am more passionate with teaching piano.

“A teaching artist, by definition, is a two-career professional: a working artist and a working educator. As a working artist is they are involved in an ongoing process of discovery, problem solving, discipline and refinement of skills in their discipline. As a working educator, it is essential that the artist is also developing a knowledge base and skills to be an effective partner in education. Achieving a meaningful balance between these two professions, whereby one feeds the other, is an ongoing process that requires a deepening awareness for the teaching artist of what their teaching brings to their art and what their art teaches them about learning.”

Hi everyone, I hope this message finds you well! I am Junling and am a professional pianist working at Boston Conservatory at Berklee. I have been play piano for 20+ years and have a Masters degree in Piano Performance. I love performance, but I am more passionate with teaching piano.
Although I love performing, I always found myself helping other pianists in need. I quickly realized that even though I have a passion for performing, I have an even greater passion for teaching. My philosophy of education is "not too hard, not too easy". As a teacher I carefully assess what skill level students are at to give assignments that will not set students up for failure (too difficult), and also will not set up students for failure to grow (too easy). I could tell the problem that students might have right away. Not only on musical way but also o
n the movement. Wrong movements could cause uncomfortableness while you playing your instruments. And I also could teach you the best way to practice for different skill spots based on my experiences.
My goal is to become a better teacher by having a chance to teach students with different interests and tastes in music like Classical, Jazz, Pop, or Broadway and to help students to approach their goal in music.

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 am fluent in Mandarin Chinese. Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences/ phrases and as time goes on, you'll be able to perfect your tones! I typically use practice books and have worksheets. I love working with students of all experience levels. Speaking is very important as much as reading/ recognizing characters. You'll be able to practice writing the characters the right way.

About Kevin
I studied classical piano for 19 years from a piano teacher who was from Julliard. I passed A.B.R.S.M. grade 8 piano test as well as the NYSSMA Grade 6 test. I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach students to read music, learn music theory, prepare for music exams and learn how to play using sheet music depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a pianist, I like to play classical, covers from movies, video games, and pop. I love to mentor students who want to become proficient in picking up any sheet music and start playing it.

My personal passion is music from movies and shows but I firmly believe that having great technique is essential to any kind of style of music. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. I believe that to learn a foreign language, students must understand the basics of the culture. My lessons include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students. I also share my impressions and experience with students, so they are more interested in the subject, motivated and inspired to learn a Mandarin Chinese.

Most of the students are afraid of learning Chinese because of Chinese characters and the tones, but I will show you that it can be quite easy and fun. Chinese characters are the soul of Chinese language and I would like to lead you into the wonderful world of Chinese characters learning,

I am here to assist you in your own unique Mandarin Chinese language-learning journey. I don't use only one book, so we won't have a page by page language process, we will actually write our own book which will be tailored to your needs, I believe ...

About Eugenia
Hi,
I am Eugenia
A happy Mandarin Chinese teacher who is truly passionate about teaching. I am a language coach committed to helping you achieve your unique Chinese language learning goals!

From a young age I have had a hard working spirit and a deep desire to learn. I found it extremely interesting, challenging and enjoyable to learn foreign languages and cultures. I speak, read and write proficiently the following languages: English, Mandarin and Russian. I sing in all three languages, enjoy travelling and love sharing my knowledge and experience related to the cultures behind each language.

I graduated with Honors from Moscow City Teacher Training University with a Master’s degree in Linguistics. I studied abroad in the UK and China. In 2012, I participated in the summer school language program in the United Kingdom (Cambridge Regi
onal College, advanced English). In 2013, I had chance to join a student exchange program for 6 months in China at Nanjing University. In 2014, I was awarded a one-year Full Chinese Government scholarship to study at Fudan University, which is one of the top 5 universities in China. There I studied advanced Chinese, Chinese culture, history and calligraphy. I love exploring different cultures by traveling and communicating with locals. I am happy that my passion became my profession. Studying abroad introduced me to different learning and teaching methods, which greatly helped on my career as a foreign language teacher.

I specialize in tutoring Mandarin Chinese. I have six years of experience with one-on-one teaching as well as teaching in a classroom setting. I have taught Mandarin Chinese and English to students from 1st to 11th grade at a Chinese Language Specialty School in Moscow and to second year university students.
