I majored in Mandarin Chinese back in college (many years ago...) and also studied Chinese at Tunghai University in Taiwan. I have excellent pronunciation, and can help you also master Mandarin pronunciation, as well as grammar, sentence structure, reading and writing, etc.

About Ian
A lifelong musician and songwriter, Ian S. has extensive experience teaching guitar and piano to students age 3 and up both as a private music instructor and as a staff music instructor at the Institute of Music for Children. With 28 years of experience on the guitar and 32 years on piano, Ian has studied and performed with several award-winning music artists, and has written, recorded, and produced over one hundred songs. He plays and teaches a variety of styles on both the guitar and the piano, from classical to jazz to rock. Ian is patient, friendly, and loves sharing the gift of music.

Ian was the guitarist in the Princeton University Jazz Ensemble for 3 seasons, was selected from a nationwide pool of musicians to perform at a special music event at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, and was the recipient of the New Jersey Gove
rnor's Award in Arts Education for the category of Instrumental Music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very laid back and friendly, and I want you or your child to be as comfortable as possible during our lessons. You or your child will develop confidence and musical intelligence. I will make your lessons fun, enjoyable, and effective. Boredom is not an option! Music is fun... let's keep it that way.

The teaching methods I use will be custom-tailored to your individual needs, personality and specific musical goals. If it's guitar or piano you want to learn, I want to get you playing exactly what you want to be playing as soon as possible. That's what you're here for, and that's what I'm here for. I will make it happen. If it's songwriting that you want to learn, I will help you access that place inside of you that is dying to express itself creatively, and will teach you techniques to harness that energy and translate it successfully into musical expression.

You can expect to learn all the basics of music theory, proper playing techniques, improvisation and spontaneous musical expression, and I will help you develop your "ear" so you can figure out songs you like just by listening to them. This is all about you and your goals, and I want you to achieve them in a fun and engaging way.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: Upright piano, guitars, amps, keyboard, percussion

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in pop, rock, classical, jazz, blues, folk, fingerstyle (guitar), etc. I also teach improvisation and songwriting, and try to develop the student's ear for figuring out songs they like on their own.

Being from Singapore, I am fluent in both English and Mandarin. I can read, write and speak at a bilingual, native proficiency in both languages. I primary speak English at home, but studied mandarin for over 10 years in school. I'll start by teaching your basic intonations, sentences, and even some idioms to spice things up! Mandarin is a musical language that's quickly taking over the world, you'll have lots of fun learning this language.

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!

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!

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.

Mandarin Chinese is my mother tongue. I grew up in China and have been living in the U.S for over 10 years. I fully understand the cultural and language differences between Chinese and English. With more than 5 years teaching experience in Chinese for all age groups, I can help you improve all aspects of Chinese, including reading, writing, listening and speaking, etc.

About Zheng
I graduated from New York University with 3.9 GPA and degrees in both Economics and Computer Science. I'm currently working on Wall Street in the investment banking industry. I have been tutoring students in math and science subjects ever since I was in high school.

"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.

Mandarin Chinese is my mother tongue. I grew up in China and have been living in the U.S for over 10 years. I fully understand the cultural and language differences between Chinese and English. With more than 5 years teaching experience in Chinese for all age groups, I can help you improve all aspects of Chinese, including reading, writing, listening and speaking, etc.

I'm very flexible with my schedule and I'm here to solve all of your problems regarding math, computer programming and Chinese. I like seeing my students achieve success in school and work. Teaching has been my passion for years and will continue to be. Do not hesitate to contact me. I'm always here to help you!

I am a native speaker of Chinese. I graduated from University of Rochester double major in Mechanical Engineering and Business. I have a teaching experience of 6 years. I am very good at explaining the meaning of Chinese words in English.

About Alan
Hello, I'm Alan!

I graduated from University of Rochester with double major in Mechanical Engineering and Business. I have worked as a TA at the University of Rochester by teaching Thermodynamics and Matlab. Also, I worked as a tutor in SAT math and reading for 5 years. I really like bringing what I learned and what I thought to students. Teaching, as I consider, is a sharing process. Moreover, I have learned Chinese Calligraphy for almost 13 years and I used to be a Chinese Calligraphy teacher in China during the summer.

Native Chinese and also fluent in English. Bilingual teaching will benefit your language skill a lot.

I want to benefit more students and share more things with them. Welcome any suggestions students or parents provide. Feel free to contact me to learn more about my lessons and schedule a lesson. I will always respon
d as soon as possible.

Originally from Shanghai, China, with a masters degree in Communications from University of Miami, I have lived and worked in the US for almost 6 years. I have tutored Chinese for the past 3 Years. My students would say my teaching is fun, motivating and encouraging. Chinese might be a difficult language to learn for some but I believe with practice, in an interactive learning environment I create, everyone can speak Chinese !

About Jing
Hi everyone ! My name is Jing Xia. Originally from Shanghai, China, graduated from University of Miami with a masters degree in Communications, I have lived and worked in the US for almost six years.

I have been tutoring different subjects since 2011. During the past three years I have focused on tutoring Chinese. I believe as intimidating as it may sound, Chinese is a language just like others. As long as you practice regularly, stay committed and learn in this fun, encouraging and motivating environment I create, you will be able to speak it.

Recently relocated to Naples/ Fort Myers area from Miami, I am looking to continue my passion in teaching Chinese. So if you are interested in learning one of the most spoken languages in the world, or if you want your kids to get ahead & be more competitive in the future business world, send m
e a message !
