"I've been teaching Chinese for 15 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Chinese culture, study abroad in Asia, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!
Chinese language learning materials as part of an integrated curriculum designed to motivate students in non-native Chinese environments to start speaking Chinese.

About Kelvin
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis.
I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham.
I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system.
Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc....
The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

Kelvin is a great teacher. He understands and teaches in a way that makes sense to me. If you’ve played the Banjo you know the teacher needs a lot of patience and he does. He provides the right direction and more importantly listens to my questions. There is no doubt in my mind if you have to learn or improve your banjo skills Kelvin can help.

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.

Learn the basics of speaking and understanding the funny-sounding language known as Cantonese! Many outsiders deem Cantonese as an aggressive and loud language. This is true to an extent, but, there is much fun, beauty, and history to this language as well!

About Austin
Hello! My name is Austin, and my personal life motto is: doing my best to help others realize and reach their best! I have been teaching a number of topics ranging from music, fitness, to technology, writing, and religious texts for over 7 years. Over these years, I have also worked a myriad of jobs to receive invaluable experience as well as learn how to interact with all kinds of people.

It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently studying for my masters at Western Seminary, interning at a church in Milpitas, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.

Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple y
et profound way to practice this!

I look forward to doing my best in order to help you realize, reach, and ultimately relish your best!

Best regards,

Austin Ying

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.

If you want to learn Chinese and know about Chinese culture, I am ready to be your guider. Your Chinese lessons will never be boring. 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.

First you will have to learn how many sounds are there in Chinese language and how they're pronounced. After the first class you will be able to say some basic sentences and words in Chinese, such as:

Hi, how are you? What is your name? I am very good, my name is. Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, Dog, Cat.

We will learn rules of pinyin-Chinese transcription system. This system helps us know how to read the characters.

After a few classes we will start writing the characters-beginning with strokes. Characters are made of strokes.

I believe the most important thing in efficient learning of a language is speaking and so I will encourage you to start speaking almost right away. :)

Looking forward to teaching you Chinese!

About Ray

Your learning goal is my priority, An interesting and effective lesson will be customized based on your level and needs. My wish is that by taking classes with me, you will develop a good model of self-studying and deepen your love of the mandarin Chinese.

About Abby
Dear students and friends,

I am thrilled to be part of your Mandarin learning journey. My passion for Chinese language and culture has led me to this site.
I was born in Chongqing and raised in Chengdu, China. I went to undergrad in Chongqing, majored in law and minored in English. I started my legal career in Beijing with a law firm and practiced Chinese law in various areas. Later on I went to U.S. for a Master of Law program and was admitted to New York Bar. I then practiced Chinese law both in Mandarin Chinese and English several years in China before I moved to the U.S. I also worked in a law firm in Frankfurt, Germany for six months as a young lawyer representative of Sichuan Lawyer Association. My legal life has not only enabled me to understand the law, business and society better, but also made me a better
communicator, and a good learner (there is always new thing to learn as a business lawyer).
My passion for Chinese language and culture initially comes from my family. My grandfather is a well-known Classic Chinese teacher and poet. My grandfather's brother (who I also call grandpa) is an expert on Tibetan Language and culture. My dad is a scholar on minority culture and religion. Also my mom was a Chinese teacher for several years. I was fascinated by the joy, beauty and satisfactions my family has showed and shared with me regarding Chinese language and culture while growing up. Luckily, on the path of learning, I also met several great teachers who guided me and inspired me. Besides the knowledge, most importantly, they taught me compassion and wisdom ( I am deeply grateful for that). It is my wish to help others in the same way.
