Mandarin is a musical language that's quickly taking over the world, you'll have lots of fun learning this language.
I was born and raised in Singapore, and am fluent in both English and Mandarin. I can read, write and speak at a bilingual, native proficiency in English and professional proficiency in Mandarin.
I'll teach you depending on your level and age. For kids, I use fun, interactive storytelling. For the adults, I'll dive into concepts like the origins of the language, nuances of the intonations, all the while teaching you vocabulary and sentence structure. I'll also adjust my lessons based on your feedback, your learning style and your goals!
I conduct group lessons for young children, which I am unable to state on my profile/list of services here. You can send me a message if you are interested in them!
I believe EVERYONE should have the opportunity to learn music, especially children, in a fun and enjoyable way! As someone who grew up around music (my mother is a music teacher!) I wish to give that chance to others.
I started playing the piano at around the age of four, and helped out as a substitute teacher at my mother's music school back in Singapore while in High School. I left shortly after to pursue music at Berklee College of Music, where I graduated summa cum laude in August 2013 with a Bachelor's of Music in Piano Performance and Contemporary Writing and Production!
My students range from as 3.5 years old, to the grandmother of a couple of my students. I wo
rk mostly with children, but have a handful of adult beginner students I work with as well.
Everyone is different - and I personally take the time and effort to develop and customize my lessons and materials for each student. I'll push you (a little!), to make you realize just how much you can do!
Music is an all-rounded experience. Not only can I offer you a chance to learn how to play different styles of piano, from jazz to pop to classical, but I can also teach you how to write your own songs, arrange them, and perhaps (if you like) record them!
A very energetic and enthusiastic instructor. Tammy came very well prepared for her lesson and brought readily custom-made materials that make the lesson very smooth. Our son is really excited about his piano lessons again!!
Thanks a lot!

Excellent teacher. Was very impressed on how well the piano classes were explained in detail. My 6 years old learned a lot in her first piano class! My daughter came out super excited and motivated!
Students can expect to set goals for each week and to be given assignments to practice in between lessons.

He prepares each lesson and holds students accountable for practicing before each lesson. The Better Chinese method is one method that he uses for young beginners, and he also has an online curriculum for students of any age to practice.

I had my first lesson today in Mandarin as a novice. Lulu is obviously an excellent tutor. She is organized, knowledgeable about the physical processes of phonetics, and extremely encouraging. I can not wait to go deeper into the Chinese language with her as my tutor. I strongly recommend taking lessons from her.

Grew up in China and graduated from one of the best universities in China. Learning Mandarin is more about learning Chinese culture than the words. Chinese is a very logical language and you will have a lot of fun learning with me.
Before I came to New York, I taught English at a local training center in Shanghai,China.
I started teaching Mandarin to a few Canadians and Americans when I was in university more than 10 years ago. And we still keep in touch now. Learning language is more about learning the culture. I am fascinated by the differences and similarities between Chinese culture and American Culture. And discovering those differences or similarities will create a big curiosity which will be very beneficial and effective when you learn the language.
In fact, many people don't know or never notice that Chinese is a very logical language and full of Chinese traditional wisdom. Even you don't agree China is becoming more and and more influential in the world, learning some Chinese culture and oriental philosophy will be an interesting journey.
Trust me, I will be your most loved Chinese teacher.

Now I am the principal cellist of The Asian Cultural Symphony Orchestra. In 2017, I presented and produced my own charity recital at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall with not only classic music with piano but
also trios with Chinese traditional instruments for the world premiere pieces which composed by the famous Chinese composers. All the proceeds of the concert are donated to UNICEF. My charity concerts tour spread across more than a dozen states and cities of the US. I have been interviewed and reported by newspapers, magazines, news, TV programs and other media at home and abroad.

I have been teaching Mandarin online and face-to-face with children and adults for over 5 years. I am from Taiwan and have lived in Los Angeles for 12 years. I know the challenge of learning a second language and it's quite normal to make mistakes when we are learning a new language, I am the native mandarin speaker and you will even catch me making some mistakes! Don't be shy, I will try my best to help you overcome your challenge and reach your goal. I am flexible, friendly, patient and passionate about teaching. I will give you fun, enjoyable and engaging lessons.
Why do I want to teach Mandarin? I was born in Taiwan and lived in California for 12 years. My passion for teaching grew after I decided to teach my son at home. Now I’m totally in love with teaching Mandarin. I completed the Montessori Chinese teacher certification in 2013 and became a tutor and continually attend teacher training and professional development.
Why did I become an online Mandarin tutor? I am also learning online to improve my skills. I found online learning could be a convenient, effective and fun way to learn a new language. I want to help more people who want to learn Mandarin. So I joined Taiwan’s official Multimedia Chinese teacher training program to expand my teaching skills online. Through online learning, I have complete the UCEs (Inservice Credit Units) certifications : 2018: Building Children's Readi
ng Skills 2017: Building Self-Esteem in Children 2015: Understanding Learning Styles
I have the following certifications in teaching Chinese. 1. 2019: Startalk: Planning for Authentic, Interactive Language Experiences 2. 2014: Multimedia and Chinese teaching certification from the Chinese Culture University (CCU) 3. 2014: IQ Chinese teacher certification 4. 2013: Montessori Chinese teacher certification
Conversation class for CHILDREN: beginner learners
As you know that children tend to pick up a second language as naturally as they learned their mother tongue. I can provide support to English-only children in my class. I will slow way down when I speak. First, I use hand gestures and finger animal puppets a lot to engage students. Second, I point to objects and digital pictures to help them understand. To help my students master Chinese, I will arrange the lesson into topics and use related chants, songs, stories, and games so that they can learn to use Chinese during the conversation in their daily life. Third, this program is based on the principle that if you can type, you can learn! If you want to learn Chinese characters, let’s type them! Sure, writing them by hand is nice, but typing them allows a different type of memorization. Plus it is faster and fun, so you can run through them more quickly and actually get somewhere in terms of writing.
My students and my son enjoy language activities a lot with me. We play pictures and games. I can’t help but smile when I think back on the language activities with them. I would more than happy to help you study Mandarin online!
I have been taking Chinese lessons online with Yenling W. for since 2013 and I am writing to show my full endorsement for her lessons and expertise in teaching. I am writing not only from the perspective of someone who considers Yenling a friend, but also from the perspective of a professional English language teacher as well as from someone who has extensive experience in education administration, curricuclum development, and language teacher management. When I started learning Chinese with Yenling, I knew nothing--absolutely nothing. As a language teacher myself, I know the challenges one is up against when teaching a 'true beginner,' which I most certainly was. In addition, a teacher of Chinese has a tougher job than a someone like myself would have when teaching English to a true beginner. I've never had to deal with teaching other how to overcome new writing systems, tonal systems, and everything else us native English speakers and other western language speakers take so much for granted, if not are wholly ignorant of. Yenling knows what she is doing and how to make concepts which once seemed so foreign and unknowable to me, familiar and commonplace. I'm an 'old dog' who's eager to learn new tricks, but those tricks don't come easy to me! Yenling is so patient with me, so understanding, and forever positive. I make mistakes, lots of mistakes, and often I will express my own frustration with myself; but, not once, not a single time has Yenling ever been anything but encouraging and reassuring---and patient!!! Teaching me requires a lot of patience :) I'm an American living in Germany also learning German, so I have my work cut out for me, and all I can say is, I wish Yenling taught German too! I need a German teacher who teaches the way Yenling teaches Mandarin--someone who is positive, professional, encouraging, and patient! Last but far from least, Yenling is constantly challenging herself to improve as not only a teacher but also as student. I know how much dedication, thought, and hard work she puts into her lessons. She participates in lots of professional development courses and has gone the extra mile to earn certifications and enroll in professional teaching courses which a lesser teacher without the Yenling's drive and ambition, would have forgone. In short--she's the best.
"She is really a nice teacher open to discuss talk and explain things the way needed. I recommend her for future students."
"We are absolutely thrilled with our experience with Tammy. My two sons meet with her online to review the Mandarin language they take at school. The extra
30 min. a week of conversation and tone work is invaluable. I would rate Tammy a 10/10 as she sends highlights, a review and suggestions of study for the week after each lesson. If a person can have teenage boys look forward to "extra" Chinese weekly, they deserve a medal!"
"Very good teacher!"
"Ying is an excellent tutor. My 15 year old daughter who has been studying Mandarin since 4 years old needed help with formal essay writing and Ying went a
bove and beyond to help guide her. Ying reviewed her essay before class and highlighted all the sentences that they would discuss during class. Ying gave advice on sentence structure, different ways to phrase something, punctuation and a whole lot more. She was very patient and clear with her explanations. Our daughter thought she was amazing. Also, she was very responsive and clear in her communication before the first class. I highly recommend Ying."
"Angela is truly patient and very friendly. Her technique proves to be very helpful."
"Very fun environment that she created which makes learning easier. Looking forward to learn more with her"
"Great teacher with great personality!
She speaks the most standard Mandarin I ever heard .
Very beautiful tone as well !
I enjoyed working with her ."
"Sharon was very patient with me as I learned to speak Chinese, especially needed in the beginning when my Chinese was not good. She is very good at workin
g on the tones and that was a relief to me because it was difficult!"
