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.

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

My daughter has been taking Chinese lessons with Nancy once a week for the last month. Nancy is very attentive and very nice teacher. She is so patient and careful, she corrects every grammar and pronunciation mistake and I like her doing that as it is very important to do so from the beginning. Explanation of the material is very simple and clear which makes the learning process easy. My daughter enjoys her classes very much.

Always patient with you when you are learning, really try her best to teach based on your interest and strive to direct the lesson towards what you want to learn rather than follow a standard curriculum or structure.

I am a student at Cornell University pursuing a degree in China Asia-Pacific Studies. I have been studying Mandarin for over 6 years and have spent time living and studying in China. Sessions are perfect for students who are interested and want to learn the basic principles of speaking Mandarin; tones, pronunciation, listening, and writing. Students will develop the confidence to continue learning as well as an appreciation for Chinese language and culture. Let's get started!

About Tredarin
I have been Djembe drumming since the age of 5, taught by some of the country's top drum masters. After learning all I could about the traditions and customs around the djembe I began specializing in modernizing djembe and incorporating it into all genres and forms of music.

I drum in all venues, Salsa dances, clubs, reunions and concerts. Artists I have worked with include Ryan Kilgore, Keaira LaShae and a variety of DJ's and local artists.

"Simplicity" is my core teaching philosophy. None of my students would get confused no matter how complicated the problem is because I would break it down to small, easy to understand pieces and even a three-year-old can learn it :)

I graduated from New York University with a Computer Science degree as well. I have learned different Programming languages including Python, Java, C++, R, Javascript during college and I'm specialized in Python web development. I like Python the most because it is the simplest and most popular programming language in the world. I have built
different web development apps with python and Django over the years. And I have been tutoring students on Python at New York University for a year.

I had scored 800 in SAT Math and 36 in ACT Math. During my college, I have taken calculus 1, 2, 3; math for econ 1, 2, 3; linear algebra 1, 2, 3; statistics; game theory; R and various math courses with a 3.9 (out of 4.0) GPA. I have been an NYU math tutor during sophomore year to senior year.

Zheng is the best tutor I have ever met. I just started with python in school this year and The professor at my school didn’t do a good job at explain the fundamental concepts which left me very confused. After taking Zheng’s class, everything became clear and I got a A in my final exam!
Highly recommend!
