Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

"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 str

ongly 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.”

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

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!

About Tammy

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!

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I am a professional qualified Mandarin Chinese tutor who has four years of experience with one-on-one teaching Mandarin as well as teaching in a classroom setting. I have taught Chinese to students aged 5-18 at a Chinese Language Specialty School in Moscow and to adults. I also prepared students for each level of Chinese proficiency qualifications (YCT, HSK).
Certifications: Master's degree in Linguistics (Theory and Methods of Teaching Foreign Languages); HSK Level 6

About Zhao Yang

Hi! 你好!Привет!

My name is Evgeniya (Zhao Yang)!

I am multilingual and I specialize in tutoring Mandarin Chinese, Russian and ESL.

You have a genuine interest in learning Mandarin or Russian, you would love to explore the language, to learn more about the culture, people, history...

But you are struggling with learning Russian/ Mandarin Chinese on your own. You need a guide who will help you and step by step will go with you toward your goals, support you in your language learning journey. You are most likely looking for the right course/ program/ teacher for you or your kid and don't know what to choose, I know it's so overwhelming! Don't wonder around for too long, make a decision and go for your dream.

About me

I have five years of experience with one-on-one online teaching as well as teaching in a classroom setti

ng. I have taught Mandarin Chinese to students aged 6 -18 at a Chinese Language Specialty School in Moscow and to sophomore, junior students, adults (I had a student who was 78 years old learning Chinese), I also have experience working with clients from diverse backgrounds within the business world (Tech companies, fashion industry, Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine Center and more). I prepare my students for each level of Chinese proficiency qualifications (YCT, HSK).

I am Russian and I teach Russian as well. I started teaching Russian 3 years ago, I absolutely enjoy the process of sharing my knowledge with students. Russian is such a beautiful language with a great history. I truly admire people who decided to learn Russian, I do my best to share my passion for the language with my clients.

I believe that when you learn a new language, you see the world through that language. Learning a language is not only about the language, it involves human communication, a
sharing of ideas, culture, travelling, history, arts, personal and professional development. So my lessons always include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students or any other topic the learner interested in.

At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. In practice I utilize interactive teaching methods and activities to motivate students to learn and communicate in a foreign language. I always use visual aids, such as software tools or videos and make students feel that learning a foreign language is fun and interesting.

I am happy that my passion for learning foreign languages became my profession. Teaching foreign languages for me is a Never-Ending Professional Development Journey. It’s a profession that allows me to be creative, work with a variety of different people, travel all over the world and inspire students not only academically but personally as well.

I'm a shy guy so when I went in for my first lesson I was really scared but my teacher was really kind and five minutes in I had completely forgotten that I was scared, and I learned so much. I went from knowing a very basic introduction to being able to ask for something, and knowing more words and it would take me ages to list off everything I've learned. Amazing teacher!

Great Mandarin Chinese tutor, 100% recommended! It was very easy to get started, flexible and you become an effective communicator in a short period of time! From day 1 I started learning stuff that I could use in real life, within months I am now having full conversations in Chinese, because I was learning the language I needed and topics I would normally talk about. Classes were so enjoyable and worth it!

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.

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

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.

About Chaowei

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.

You will hav

e a lot of fun learning Chinese with me!
