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.

About Gordon
Hello! My name is Gordon L. and I would love to help you or your child discover your passions and work towards reaching any academic or artistic goals!

Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, I am fortunate to have had an exceptional academic foundation. I attended Punahou School K-12 earning high marks and went on to graduate college from the University of California, Berkeley. I have a variety of expertise and tutoring experience in these subjects:

- Computer Programming
- Math
- Chinese
- Humanities
- SAT

Outside of school, I have also always been an artist and hobbyist, heavily investing myself in various forms of creative expression including:

- Dance (hip-hop/urban)
- Photography (DSLR, Lightroom/Photoshop)
- Card magic/Card flourishes (look it up :P)

Over the years, I have found that my enthusiasm for both people
and learning different things greatly enriches my life and those around me. If you're looking for someone who can introduce you to a variety of subjects, I'm your guy. I love learning about anything and everything and hope to encourage others to explore their passions. Furthermore, though my interests are many and varied, I have also committed years into training, have a solid grasp on their principles, and can confidently say that I am a qualified expert. I look forward to meeting you and helping you learn with me!

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.

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.

I graduated from American University with a B.A. degree in International Studies and a B.S. degree in Economics. I was a teaching assistant at American University for three years in the areas of Chinese, economic and international studies. I was doing private tutoring in past two years covers the topics of Chinese, economic, American history, Asian study, and statistics.

I have my career passion in international development especially NGO development. I am the kind of person who likes to share what I learned and what I experienced with others. Both my parents are professors in college. So I guess I am affected by this familial inheritance of teaching and sharing knowledge.

I am from Beijing, China. As a native Mandarin speaker, I had two years experience in tutoring Chinese at American University. I had experience in teaching all range of l students includes both beginners who just start to learn tones and advanced who want to learn more about Chinese culture.

Chensi is very professional and a patient and cheery instructor. Her lesson was well-prepared and she was clear and attentive in her explanations and in monitoring my understanding. Her follow-up after the lesson helped me to practice effectively until next lesson.

Chensi is very helpful in teaching me read music. As a beginner, read music was the most difficult part, since it would slow down the practice pace. Chensi is very skillful in reading music through a faster way, which letting my progress efficient.

Hi. I'm Chinese and I moved to the US when I was in six grade. Even through I stayed here for a long time I still use Chinese in day to day basis and I'm still completely fluent. In my lessons you will expect to learn how to speak mandarin by learning the pinyin (拼音) system and how to write chinese.

About Wankun
Hi, I'm Wankun. I'm a student at Franklin High School. I always wanted to teach but I didn't have the opportunity and time. And finally! My senior year came and I turned 18 (that was a big day for me).

My whole life is filled with music. I started piano lessons since I was 5. After I moved to America (I was born in China) I had some violin lessons. In freshman year I joined school band. I'm still in band, playing flute in marching band and oboe in wind ensemble.

Music is an expression. It can be happy and light, or dramatical and full of sorrow. We need basic skills to approach a sound, but music is more than that. Music is when you give a sound a meaning, a feeling, and a heartbeat that makes it alive.

Different genre speaks and expresses differently. Personally I really enjoy indie (TØP!) and opera. But no matter what, all kind
s of music are beautiful and it's the meaning that matters the most.

I look forward to teach you the basic skills and share my journey of exploring music with you!

When I first knew Wankun, I was amazed by her passion and talent in music. I know for sure that she is a great pianolist, violinist and a lot others. It is enjoyable and pleasing to hear beautiful rhythm coming out from her fingers. If you have the same passion and want to explore the splendid world of music, you should definitely take her classes!
