About Sandy
Having taught Chinese Language Skills in the private sector, primary, secondary and college institutions for a number of years in China, has not only given me great confidence to teach in a classroom setting, but has inherently brought an instructor comfort that feels natural to me.
In addition, finding an opportunity where I can assist the kids, middle school and high school students and adults who love to learn Chinese college staff while maintaining my teaching proficiency in traditional or simplified Chinese characters is both welcome and rewarding to me.

I'm certain that my rich knowledge and years of experience in classroom practical application of Chinese Curriculum / Culture coupled with my love to teach make me a professional, responsible and patient teacher.

In addition, I can teach you Chinese in your location which
is no more than 10 miles away from Vista where I live. I can also teach you how to play badminton and cook delicious authentic Chinese food.

Ms. Qi is a very accessible and diligent teacher. My son can be difficult, but she found ways to quickly connect with him and get him to open up. She accommodated his need for assistance with his regular work, but encouraged us to "start again" with Chinese which is probably a good idea. Very much appreciate her experience and enthusiasm.

About Lily
I am a fashion designer/instructor and former social worker. I am very patient with students and passionate about sewing. I get excited watching students build skills gradually from basic through advanced level techniques.
Also, I am one of the few teachers in the country who teaches the exclusive "Freehand" sewing, which is sewing without ready-made (commercial) pattern, like our grandparents did.
As a social worker, I taught participants in a homeless shelter, how to make various items geared towards independent living. For 9years now, I've been teaching at a fabric store in East Harlem where patrons sign up for group sewing lessons as well as private lessons. I teach garment construction, alterations, home decor, and various sewing projects.

About Siddharth
Hi there, my name is Siddharth and I have been teaching chess in public and private schools, including private lessons, over the last three years.

I love to see students grow with each lesson and accomplish their goals. Under my tutelage, I have helped students advance from beginner level to tournament level competition. Recently, two of my students have won in their respective tournaments.

I attended De Monte Fort University in England and earned my degree in Textile Technology and Business Management in 1976. Since then I have been fortunate to be able to travel worldwide.

I enjoy teaching children of all ages, as well as adults. My philosophy is to make chess a fun experience while improving my students' technical skills.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals.

Mr.Siddharth is a great instructor. My son wanted to join chess, but I wasn't sure how much online classes can help. After few classes, I could see my son started showing more interest in chess and he was proud of his progress as well. He is looking forward for the class. Thats a very good sign for me. I would highly recommend Mr.Siddharth.

About Adriana
Hello there! I’m Adriana! I’m a Professional Hip Hop/Urban Freestyle Dancer and Creative Influencer— while having a very unique approach to fuse meditation within my teaching. Although I went to college for International Business, I found that Dancing was what made my soul sing! I took that passion and made something out of it, and every since then I have been able to Work with variety of different artis in the Maryland, DC, and Virgina areas.

I will admit that I didn’t go to your traditional preforming arts school, but I learned through a variety of professionals in array of dance styles. I can proudly say that I taught myself how to freestyle, which is one the hardest things to do as a dancer. I then took my dance up a notch and added more to the visuals by adding jewelry and fashion. With this addtion under to my belt, I’ve been
able to truly display my full essences of myself in music videos, and project with different artist all over the world.

Students of mine can expect to learn more than just dancing but also learn to freestyle while incorporating fundamental techniques, and be able to allow dance to be a catalysts to build stronger confidence; While also developing a balance of the mind to enhance peace/happiness in ones life through dance meditation, and being able to express all thoughts fully through the body. I’ve learned that Dance can offer so much— you just have to be a little creative and my goal is to help you unlock your creative potential.

I’ve taught a variety of privates lessons, group classes, and summer camps. I’ve taught ages ranging from ages 3 and up. All I need is your time and determination to help achieve you goals!
