"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 strongly 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.”

The audio and video were fuzzy at times, so he did not always know what Kelvin was asking him to do....so that is the missing star. Other than that he enjoyed the lesson very much.

I think personal face - face classes for painting would help better than online.

I am a native Chinese speaker and speak Mandarin. I was born in China and lived there for 18 years. I am also fluent in English since I have lived in the U.S. for 7 years now. In our lessons, you will not only learn the proper pronunciations, vocabulary, and grammars, but also the way the actual Chinese people would talk. And everything covered in the lesson will be well explained in both Chinese and English!
I believed the fastest way to progress in a second language is to live in an environment that only speaks that language. If you are already familiar with Chinese but still would like to improve, we could have a practice session, in which we will be only using Chinese, so that it mimics a real conversation/situation that you may encounter in China.

It was a very good 1st lesson. I would give it 5 stars. This rating is for this lesson only. I am not saying she is the best instructor ever. As we proceed with lessons I will make further evaluations from time to time; not after each lesson. Garrett

As a native English speaker, I am all too familiar with the process of learning Mandarin for the first time. I lived in China 4 years, and I have a great passion in teaching Mandarin. My students have gone on to HSK level 4. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to write some characters and as time goes on you'll be able to pronounce sentences.

I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Специалистом мы очень довольны. Виктория интересно преподносит материал, наша дочка с удовольствием занимается. Репетитор пунктуальная и ответственная, к дочери относится доброжелательно. Дочь изучает английский язык для увеличения своих языковых навыков и каждый раз рассказывает эмоционально о занятиях, ей очень нравится заниматься с репетитором. Педагог проявила себя с лучшей стороны, у меня к ней нет нареканий, она подходит нам и личностными, и профессиональными качествами.

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.
