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!

Thanks a lot!

If you plan to use Chinese at work, we can focus our lessons around dialogue and vocabulary that relates directly to your job or industry. If you are a student and want to improve your academic performance in Chinese, I can train you to utilize more efficient ways of studying and practicing. If you would like to gain exposure to or build a foundation in Mandarin Chinese, I can also help you accomplish this.

About Tammy
I am a native Chinese speaker with a BA in English and MBA in Global Management from Thunderbird. I worked as an English to Chinese translator for 2 years in the Ministry of Commerce in Beijing, and volunteered as an interpreter for the City of Austin. During graduate school, I was a Chinese tutor/language partner for a few of my classmates, all of whom made big progress in their fluency and pronunciation.

Hi everyone, I hope this message finds you well! I am Junling and am a professional pianist working at Boston Conservatory at Berklee. I have been play piano for 20+ years and have a Masters degree in Piano Performance. I love performance, but I am more passionate with teaching piano.

“A teaching artist, by definition, is a two-career professional: a working artist and a working educator. As a working artist is they are involved in an ongoing process of discovery, problem solving, discipline and refinement of skills in their discipline. As a working educator, it is essential that the artist is also developing a knowledge base and skills to be an effective partner in education. Achieving a meaningful balance between these two professions, whereby one feeds the other, is an ongoing process that requires a deepening awareness for the teaching artist of what their teaching brings to their art and what their art teaches them about learning.”

Hi everyone, I hope this message finds you well! I am Junling and am a professional pianist working at Boston Conservatory at Berklee. I have been play piano for 20+ years and have a Masters degree in Piano Performance. I love performance, but I am more passionate with teaching piano.
Although I love performing, I always found myself helping other pianists in need. I quickly realized that even though I have a passion for performing, I have an even greater passion for teaching. My philosophy of education is "not too hard, not too easy". As a teacher I carefully assess what skill level students are at to give assignments that will not set students up for failure (too difficult), and also will not set up students for failure to grow (too easy). I could tell the problem that students might have right away. Not only on musical way but also o
n the movement. Wrong movements could cause uncomfortableness while you playing your instruments. And I also could teach you the best way to practice for different skill spots based on my experiences.
My goal is to become a better teacher by having a chance to teach students with different interests and tastes in music like Classical, Jazz, Pop, or Broadway and to help students to approach their goal in music.

I am a native Chinese speaker. I can speak five languages. I have years of languages (Chinese & English) teaching experience. I am certified to teach in public schools in China. I believe interaction and immersion are effective approaches to learn a new language. Learning a new language with a native speaker is ten times efficient than learning from language apps. Lessons are customized. Communicative language and Chinese culture would be prioritized while making lesson plans. To learn a new language, it's not simply about the language itself. The more you know about the culture, the better you appreciate the language.

About Guifang
I have more than nine years of language teaching experience. I have learned five languages over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese when I was 19 and I founded my first summer camp in China when I was 20. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

Interest is the best teacher. When I taught non-nativ
e Chinese speakers (in China, South Korea and the U.S) Chinese, it seemed it stimulated their curiosity and interest to learn Chinese when cultural elements were introduced--such as characters' origin and visualization, historical contexts and cultural traditions. I hope that approach can also bring you an enjoyable experience learning a new language!

To help you be able to use Chinese, our language learning is mainly through interactive and communicative approaches. Talk! Talk! Talk! Please don't be shy. It's okay to make mistakes. Learning from mistakes is also a very effective way to learn a new language. We can make more contextualized dialogues based on whatever textbook you are using now. Or we can produce functional conversation based on everyday topics that you are interested. Lesson plans are customized and they can be flexible.

HaiBo is very patient! I have been studying Chinese on my own for quite a while, but definitely need help with tones. She goes over and over them with me until she feels I've done them right! She is kind enough to put reviews of words, sentences, phrases in the form of flashcards on an app so I can review them over the course of the week. We have needed to reschedule several times and she has been flexible enough to do that for me, too! I have reviewed stuff I thought I knew and have learned new vocab, but most importantly, we have USED that vocab in sentences and I feel like I'm actually improving my spoken Chinese! In addition, I have been working on learning characters with HaiBo and I am surprised how many I know!

I am specializing in teaching Mandarin Chinese for all levels, from the very beginning foundations to advanced creative writing/speech skills. I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker grew up in Beijing, China and now residents in New York, working as a professional actor, playwright, and translator. I have also been working as an editor and journalist. I understand how the language really works and how to teach it in a creative way as well as rigorous way. I would love to improve your Mandarin Chinese level through an integrated approach so you can use it in whatever settings you desire!

About Shaotian
I am a Mandarin Chinese teacher teaches the language for all levels, from the very beginning foundations to the advanced creative writing/speech skills, for all ages.

I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker who grew up in Beijing, China, and residents in New York now. I graduated from The New School with an MFA in Acting, and University of California, Berkeley with a BA in Theater and Performance Studies (Acting and Playwright Concentration). Other than teaching Mandarin, I have been working as a professional actor, playwright, editor, translator, and private writing coach. I have also worked as a journalist for the newspaper Beijing Student Times and the magazine 39.2, under the company of Beijing Youth Daily.

I understand how Chinese works essentially and know how to teach it in creative ways, and I would love to share it with you. I u
nderstand that different person has different purpose and goal in studying a language. Therefore, I teach the language in a personalized way. If you want to learn it thoroughly, I would love to teach it as rigorous as possible, for professional or academic speech and writing works. However, if you want to learn it you could use it in daily life or at least to be understood, I will teach you how the language has been modified in modern daily life, and what are the keys and what you could skip at first, to make it a little easier for you.

My playwright and editor experience could also help people who have needs in advanced professional and creative writing. In addition, I also specialized in Chinese language and accent coach for actors, for I understand how Speech works in the environment of acting in both languages.

I would love to help you based on your needs in learning Mandarin Chinese. Please do not hesitate in contacting me to see if you think we are a good match! 欢迎学习中文!
