I have been teaching Chinese in bay area for many years. I am very experienced in customizing private lessons for students of different age with a wide variety of needs. For more information, please contact: lartstutor at gmail, or leave an online message. I am looking forward to working with you:)

Background:
I am a Chinese native speaker with a Master degree in Education. I've also got a teaching credential to teach in public schools in China. I am experienced in customizing lessons for both children and adults. In my class, students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Therefore, I've gained a lot of successful teaching experiences in designing lessons targeting students' goals and expectations. My Chinese class has covered topics from kids Chinese to adult Business Chinese.

Course benefits include:
- 1-on-1, or 1-on-more customized private lessons

Lin is an effective teacher who makes learning Mandarin easier and faster. In the beginning, she did a good job of inquiring about my experience and assessing my skill in order to best adjust the lessons to my level.

The lessons are professional and organized. As I personally started the lessons with some very basic foundation (can't really understand fast speech, sluggish to construct very simple sentences), the structure to the lessons makes the learning efficient. She helped me go over sentence grammatical structures, useful words for communication, and I pick up vocabulary as we progress. She also helps play some videos of people speaking Mandarin at a pace which is normally too fast for me to understand, but she's really good with helping break it down and giving tips to help my ear and brain pick up the meaning. The homework she assigns contains very useful exercises that help further solidify and apply what was covered in the lesson too.

Most of all, the lessons are made really fun with her enthusiasm for the language and for teaching. You can ask her anything and she is thorough in her explanations with several examples to help you better understand. Moreover, the lessons are designed such that while learning how to speak the language, you are also learning more about Chinese culture (famous Chinese pieces, opera, etc), which I have found to be a great way to be better immersed in my learning. I can feel myself improving quickly and would highly recommend Lin, as she is a clear, effective, and fun teacher.

It has been a pleasure working with Lynn over the past several weeks for violin and mandarin lessons for my children. Lynn is organized, professional and very responsive to questions. She also pays close attention to each child's learning style and is quick to make changes to her lesson plans or teaching strategies to maximize learning for each child. We are very grateful to have found such an attentive teacher.

I am both patient and enthusiastic as a teacher. I speak Mandarin Chinese as my native language, and can help my students progress to a high level. Once I have determined the student's level, I work with them to help them improve according to their goals.

About Lella
I studied Musicology and Piano Performance at the Shandong Normal University School of Music, where I graduated with my BA in 2005. I taught music and established a band at a property management institute while a student there, and established my own practice after I graduated. I came to the United States in 2013, where I have continued to play piano and have joined a local band. I am happy to continue sharing my love of music with my students here.

I began tutoring Mandarin in January 2015. As a native speaker, I can guide you to a very high level, and help you learn to speak with a proper Chinese accent.

Please note: Online classes are available for Mandarin Chinese only. Piano lessons are only available in person.

We just had our first lesson and we hit a few bumps but my daughter has never had music instruction before so we're giving it another go next week to see if things go more smoothly. 3 stars above says meets expectations, and though it didn't, I just hesitate to give someone 2 stars based on one lesson.
Here are some details from class:
My daughter (K) just turned 5 but is pretty mature for her age and has expressed an interest in learning the piano so we signed up for individual lessons with Lella. At the start of class I mentioned again (I had noted it at booking time as well) that K has had zero experience with music instruction. Immediately Lella sat with K on the piano bench and started explaining treble clef sign, bass clef sign and what hands they relate to. Lella also has a thick accent as I was trying to follow along with her explanations with a little difficulty. She even asked if K speaks Chinese and I said "no" so she said "you're Indian right?" My daughter would look around from time to time while Lella was explaining at which point Lella would just keep seeing "Pay attention sweetie!" Then she asked my daughter to write the numbers 1-5 in a book and when she said she didn't know how to write the number 2, Lella laughed and said "you know, but you forgot right" so I spoke up and explained "no she has not been taught to write her numbers yet, but she can read/recognize them" to which Lella seemed very surprised, so I felt the need to say, "she's still in preschool. But if you write them she'll be able to tell you what they are." So then Lella switched to counts, explaining about the values of different notes. She asked my daughter if she had questions, to which my daughter said "I think I understand what you're saying, if it's just a circle that means four, but if it's a circle with a line..." And before she could finish her thought Lella said "no that's not a line, it's a stem". At another point when Lella asked if she had any questions, my daughter slowly said "yes... what's velour?" And when Lella looked confused I had to step in and explain that Lella was saying "value", the amount of counts for a note. By the end of the half hour lesson, Lella had reached her explanation of middle C, which she described to my daughter saying "this is middle C because it's in the middle, there are two black keys, then on the left is C. Can you find another one?" When K didn't respond right away, she repeated herself, and again another time. So I said "she really has had no previous music experience, I think you need to even explain to her that those are called keys, like there are black keys, white keys..." And Lella just looked at me confused.
At the end of the lesson I agreed to buy the theory book so we can practice that at home, and Lella asked if I can sit in on the next lesson to help explain things to my daughter, because she "doesn't really focus". I agreed to sit in on the lesson, for my own benefit so I can help her with HW since I also don't have music experience. But I also mentioned to Lella that her accent is quite strong and I think my daughter was having trouble understanding her, and Lella seemed surprised by that comment.
I don't know... it says on Lella's profile that she has worked with young kids but I can't really see how the class was any different from how she would teach me, an adult with no prior music experience.
Oh! I forgot to mention something so basic - when we met Lella she thought I was someone else so I re-introduced myself and introduced my daughter. Then as we were saying goodbye at the end of class I realized Lella had never introduced herself to my daughter, so I asked "oh, what would you like K to call you, Ms. Li, or Lella? Ms. Lella?" She said Lella was fine so I turned to K and said "Tell Lella bye K." It just hit me, I mean that's something about creating a relationship with a young student. Speaking to them directly, making that connection. Lella was really smiley which gave the impression she was friendly but she never really made a connection with K who is the student, not me.

About Michael H.

Close

I majored in Chinese Literature and Language at the University of California Irvine and studied abroad for a year on a full scholarship at one of the top universities in China: Beijing Normal University. I love teaching languages because it is a window to learning different cultures and parts of our world.

About Michael
I graduated from the University of California Irvine. I have been teaching for over 15 years. I teach health, emotional healing, and languages: Chinese and ESL. I use digital flashcards that I have created to help my Chinese and ESL students continue practicing and applying the language they are learning in between lessons. Helping others grow and learn is my life's greatest passion.

Chinese:
I majored in Chinese Literature and Language at the University of California Irvine and studied abroad for a year on a full scholarship at one of the top universities in China: Beijing Normal University. I can teach all ages well even if you do not have any background.

ESL:
I have a TESOL degree and also fluently speak Chinese and Korean. which helps my Chinese and Korean students learn English much faster from me than from other ESL teach
ers who do not speak these languages. I have a great passion for teaching and understand how to help my students master the English language by learning through application. Learning a language is like putting pieces of a puzzle together. Once you know how the puzzle pieces of a language work and interact with each other, you have the critical foundation for mastering any language.

Health & Life Coaching:
I have a practice called Heal From the Ground Up where I target the underlying root causes of my clients' body and mind related health problems, in particular: depression, PTSD, ADHD, anxiety disorders, emotional stress, detoxification, hormone imbalance, candida, digestion, nutrition. exercise, medication induced nutrient depletion, and more.

I really enjoyed my first lesson with Michael. Although I have no background in learning Chinese Michael made learning a new language, which I was at first intimidated by, very easy to understand. After the first class, I felt excited because I was already making basic sentences. I am looking forward to many more classes with Michael!

I grew up in a tutoring business family and Mandarin Chinese is my mother tongue. Before I immigrated to the United States, I was a TV journalist in Taiwan. I also have my Master's from Georgetown University. I mastered Mandarin Chinese in both personal and professional dialects. I have been tutoring Math, English and Mandarin Chinese on and off for over 26 years. I adjust my teaching methods based on each student's personality to make the learning experience fun and easy. I'm also very fluent in English so I can explain the meaning of Mandarin characters better for students to understand easily. I believe language is a practical tool and learning Mandarin Chinese should be a joyful experience. I teach all levels from beginners to advancer, just tell me how you want to learn, and I will accommodate to your needs to help you learn Mandarin Chinese.

About Charlotte
Hello, nice to meet you here! Charlotte is my English name that a priest pricked up for me when I traveled to Italy in the 90's, it means little and womanly which is opposites from my Chinese name(I'll tell you how to write it after you select me as your tutor). My Chinese name is very manly and positive just like my personality-- positive and a Tom boy.

I was born and grew up in a tutoring business family in Taiwan ( the free, democratic, USA-like small island next to China), Mandarin Chinese is my mother tongue. I was a TV journalist in Taiwan before I came to the USA to pursue my Master degree at Georgetown University in 2002. After the graduation I started working in American global corporations and lived between Taiwan and USA on and off due to works until I met my American husband in 2012 and I am an American citizen now .

Cu
rrently I'm an entrepreneur after my global marketing professional careers in American globalized corporations. I guess I was born with tutoring gene so I have passions about education and feel like sharing my knowledge about Mandarin Chinese with people who are interested in learning it will be fun and rewarding. It might also help people from two different cultures understand each other better.

In my leaseiure time, I love gardening, birds watching, hiking, jogging, photographing and traveling. I never smoke, never do drugs and don't really drink. I am into healthy and organic life style. I especially love children and love being with them. I also like to make new friends and having interesting conversations about everything and the world.
