Mastering fundamentals is extremely important when learning a language. This is especially true for Chinese. We'll first practice the basic sounds and tones. Then we'll learn practical travel Chinese--practicing simple conversations. Once you get your footing, we'll expand your vocabulary and understanding of grammar.

About Joy
I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading, writing, and speech.

Photography has been one of my main areas of focus for over ten years. I am trained in both film and digital formats and specialize in demystifying the DSLR so that you gain a good understanding of manual settings and how to use each to improve your photos.

Caring, compassion, and understanding are essential for learning and I strive to do my best in these areas.

About Bill L.

Chicago, IL
View Full Profile

Grew up in America (born in Taiwan) for over 13 years and native speaker of both English and Mandardin Chinese.

About Bill
I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I enjoy tutoring (doing it ever since I was in high school for my classmates) and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!

Vivien is excellent at addressing issues in my playing, while also encouraging me to continue to do well what she deems good playing. She has a positive attitude every lesson and I always feel invigorated to practice more afterwards and put forth more energy into music. I am grateful to have a teacher that challenges me and gives me confidence in my skills.

Wonderful instructor. We look forward to continuing lessons later this year. She was very professional and made my 15 year old daughter comfortable with learning Chinese. She tailored the lessons to fit her aptitude. I would highly recommend her. She also met us at the local community center which was very helpful logistically.

About Abby Y.

Brighton, MA

I've been a learner of foreign languages for 15 years, I teach Chinese and English occasionally, as well as volunteer for cross cultural communication organizations to better understand the cultural context of languages. My goal in teaching Mandarin Chinese is to cater to each student's personal goals, be it conversational or to dive deep into the fascinating culture, I'll be able to provide assistance in realizing that goal.

About Abby
I'm a marketing communication student from Beijing, China.
I've been learning English for 15 years, and I came to the US during high school for a cultural exchange program. I think the immersive environment of a foreign language is crucial to the speed and effect of the learning progress. Even though it's not that easy to accomplish in another country, I still try to provide appropriate context to create an environment close to the native scenes. Personally I also study Korean and Spanish, which gives me a perspective on how to learn languages that from different language families, and to study at different ages.
I've been volunteering for the same cultural exchange organization for 8 years, during which time I came to contact with students from different continents and native languages.
I fully understand the obstacles of easing into M
andarin Chinese language system as beginners, getting comfortable with the grammar frame as intermediate learners, as well as the advanced written and spoken skills desired by advanced learners (as a Beijinger, I speak Standard Chinese aka Putonghua).

I was born in China and finished my ninth grade there. The school is quite prestigious in terms of academic level. I then finished high school in the United States and earned my Bachelor Degree in Chemistry and Violin Performance at Oberlin College and Conservatory in Ohio. My fluency in both languages will make learning Mandarin much easier and more fun.

About Jerry (Zheyang)
Hello! I am Jerry Xiong. I just graduated from Oberlin College and Conservatory with Bachelor Degrees in violin performance and chemistry. Currently, I am studying violin performance at USC Thornton School of Music.

Having been the concertmaster of both Oberlin Orchestra and the Colorado College Summer Music Festival Orchestra, I believe that classical music has always been a passion for me. Recent awards include winner of New Hampshire Philharmonic Orchestra Concerto Competition of 2014, Winner of Oberlin Conservatory Concerto Competition of 2017-18, and the semi-finalist of Ann and Charles Eisemann International Young Artist Competition of 2018. This year, I have been selected as one of the four concertmasters of the Thornton Symphony.

I believe that my experience and my passion for music will be able to help both improve one's techni
que as well as staying passionate about music. Having met numerous world's greatest violin pedagogues, being able to share my music with you is a treat for both you and me.

For my potential student who would like to learn Chinese, my fluency in both languages will be able to help you learn the language with fun and ease. Learning Chinese is not just learning a language, one will be able to feel the Chinese culture and the beauty of this language.

About Meiling W.

Close
Madison, WI

View Full Profile

As an international student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, language is always one of my most familiar tools. From my past experience of tutoring high schoolers and adults, I believe a language is not only about vocabulary, grammar or accent, but also built by the culture and history behind. I'd like to help students to not only be good at a language, but also get to know the the people and the place that make the language valuable. Learning a language should never be boring while we discover the mysterious origin of every rule and word together.

About Meiling
I always introduce myself as a people person. Since elementary school, I have involved in various activities that enable me to interact with people. The interaction or communication among people makes the society and our lives more fun and fulfilled, and we cannot accomplish this without languages.

I started to tutor in high school, and I loved getting to know diverse people and exploring the connotation and history of a language. Also, the passion those students had inspired me to not stop learning. I interned at an English learning club in Shanghai, and most of the students there are adults. Though there were differences, I managed to help them get interested in a language and learn it without pressure.

My goal is simple. I’d like to help people learn and make them happy. Teaching is such a challenging but unique way for me to a
pproach my goal.
