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.

Joy is lovely and has been very flexible with my schedule. You can tell she loves photography and enjoys teaching. If I was more of an online learner I would have rated the session a 5. I am now realizing I am more of a hands on person it is personally challenging for me to learn using this method. In an ideal world we would be learning by shooting in real time.

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.

Originally from Shanghai, China, with a masters degree in Communications from University of Miami, I have lived and worked in the US for almost 6 years. I have tutored Chinese for the past 3 Years. My students would say my teaching is fun, motivating and encouraging. Chinese might be a difficult language to learn for some but I believe with practice, in an interactive learning environment I create, everyone can speak Chinese !

About Jing
Hi everyone ! My name is Jing Xia. Originally from Shanghai, China, graduated from University of Miami with a masters degree in Communications, I have lived and worked in the US for almost six years.

I have been tutoring different subjects since 2011. During the past three years I have focused on tutoring Chinese. I believe as intimidating as it may sound, Chinese is a language just like others. As long as you practice regularly, stay committed and learn in this fun, encouraging and motivating environment I create, you will be able to speak it.

Recently relocated to Naples/ Fort Myers area from Miami, I am looking to continue my passion in teaching Chinese. So if you are interested in learning one of the most spoken languages in the world, or if you want your kids to get ahead & be more competitive in the future business world, send m
e a message !

Also, I will continuously monitor course quality to ensure your needs are being met.
