Quick view profile

I am a native Chinese speaker, got my PhD Degree in Japan, and live in the U.S. for more than 5 years now. I love contacting with people especially kids, and love to share Chinese culture to foreign friends too. I always believe that you can only learn if you are interested in it, so I will do my best to help you with your Chinese skills as well as any other thing you would like to know about China. All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Looking forward to studying with you together!

About Jiayin

I came from Beijing in China, and have been living here in the U.S. for more than 5 years. I began to teach Chinese as a part time job when I was first in Japan about 18 years ago. I found it was a great way to get to know more people and introduce the culture of China to other parts of the world.

Dan is awesome to work with. I've had five 30 minute sessions so far, and now have switched to 60 minutes - I've even paid in advance for 20 lessons because I know I'll be continuing with him long term. Love that he's very detail oriented and corrects me when I sign less than perfect.

Dr. Nupur is the best teacher ever, we feel lucky to have found her at takelessons.

Her background is impeccable and in addition, she is a teacher who cares. She cared about my daughter, her progress (high school, chemistry) and well-being. My daughter's progress in less than 1 month was amazing: she went from 'we're a bit concerned for your grade' to the point she was helping others in class.

Dr. Nupur is the kind of teacher you wish your kids to have. I recommend her highly.

I was a 5th year ALT on the JET Programme. (Ask me how I transferred from Nagasaki to Tokyo!) I taught high school, middle school, and special education English classes. Since then, I've been teaching adults and children here in New York City. As a native English speaker who has studied Japanese, I know the most effective methods to learn it.

I love teaching Japanese and English! They're both so much fun to learn. I can teach you what you need to know to visit Japan, sing karaoke, or become a translator. Anything for my amazing students.

About Sara

I am here to help you meet and set goals with your Japanese and English while encouraging and challenging you to reach new heights as a student and as the wonderful, beautiful individual you are. I will teach with as much enthusiasm as you study. 10 hours of classes a week? No problem! 3-hour sessi

I feel that learning in general and learning a foreign language in particular is about repetition and I ask my students to repeat everything I teach over and over again until they know it by heart. I keep my lessons simple to avoid overwhelming the students and to allow time for them to repeat what they learned earlier. I teach the words that form part of the so called core vocabulary; words that are chosen according to frequency and range (in the sense that they “occur across a wide variety of texts”) It is often said that the first 2000 most frequent words cover approximately 90% of the vocabulary used by native-speakers in daily conversations. This means that for a student they represent the basic resource to be able to communicate.

About Stefania

I am Italian. I moved to Canada first and the US next in my thirties. I love teaching. I own a retail training and consulting company. I have taught Italian on and off over the years and have always loved doing it. I am very passionate about the topics I teach and have a clear understanding of the

Stefania was a great teacher, full of energy and encouragement. She customized the lesson plan for our needs (traveling to Italy, and wanting a crash course in conversational Italian). She made the learning fun, and even made the grammar piece (the hardest part of Italian) go quick! I feel motivated to study for our next lesson, and look forward to it.

Practicing is the KEY...

From my own experience learning to speak english and portuguese, I know that the key of the success learning a new language is practicing.

From the most common things you have done in your life, to your business projects or your lifetime goals, we are going to talk about everything and I will be correcting you and taking out the fear of making a mistake.

I am from Venezuela (Spanish Speaker), and I have lived in Mexico, United States, Argentina and currently living in the Dominican Republic. There is a lot of culture in me that I will love to share with you in our lessons.

Is going to be the best experience for both of us.
