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!
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!
A very energetic and enthusiastic instructor. Tammy came very well prepared for her lesson and brought readily custom-made materials that make the lesson very smooth. Our son is really excited about his piano lessons again!!
Thanks a lot!

Excellent teacher. Was very impressed on how well the piano classes were explained in detail. My 6 years old learned a lot in her first piano class! My daughter came out super excited and motivated!
Students can expect to set goals for each week and to be given assignments to practice in between lessons.
Larry is a native of Taiwan, and speaks English & Mandarin fluently. He teaches Mandarin Chinese in any of the boroughs of New York City, online, or at his home location. He prepares each lesson and holds students accountable for practicing before each lesson. The Better Chinese method is one method that he uses for young beginners, and he also has an online curriculum for students of any age to practice.
Larry started tutoring Mandarin Chinese while he was still a student at the BYU-Idaho in 2007 and has continued teaching after moving to NYC.
I have lived in China for 4 years and my wife is Chinese. With our combined experience we will have no problem bringing your Chinese up to any level you like.
I went to Pensacola Catholic High and graduated in 2003. I then attended and Auburn University, where I became a Christian, and graduated in 2007. Once I finished, I went overseas to teach English and do missions. I taught in Thailand from 2003-2007 and then in China from 2012-2016. I have been teaching since that time and am back home now to get my Master's degree in TESOL. I enjoy teaching people and watching their confidence grow as they learn new skills and develop new abilities. My teaching style is relaxing but challenging; as much as possible, I encourage and motivate students to have a love of learning, not just of this subject but of learning in general.

Excellent teacher. Lulu was patient, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. I took both Mandarin and piano lessons, and she helped me rekindle my passion for both.

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.
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.
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.
Trust me, I will be your most loved Chinese teacher.
I am a professional cellist with more than 20 years of performing experience and teaching professionally for more than 10 years. I completed my Master of Music at Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Music with a scholarship. Additionally, I received a Professional Studies Diploma which is the highest level of performance at The New School Mannes School of Music which is a top conservatory in New York with scholarship as well.
I am performing with top orchestras at the notable concert venues in the US every year, such as Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center as both soloist and principal cellist with various orchestras. Now I am the principal cellist of The Asian Cultural Symphony Orchestra. In 2017, I presented and produced my own charity recital at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall with not only classic music with piano but
also trios with Chinese traditional instruments for the world premiere pieces which composed by the famous Chinese composers. All the proceeds of the concert are donated to UNICEF. My charity concerts tour spread across more than a dozen states and cities of the US. I have been interviewed and reported by newspapers, magazines, news, TV programs and other media at home and abroad.

"I really enjoyed having Yiqing as my Chinese tutor. She's friendly, passionate and always well-prepared for every class :)"
"She is an amazing teacher. Very patient and kind! Excellent in every way!"
"I've had a great experience so far. Yiju is patient, enthusiastic, and fun. Her lessons are easy to get into and the time flies by really fast. She's very
engaging on cultural topics, illustrates a variety of ways to say something, and is generally very organized and punctual. She has been very accommodating to my requests and helping me learn in a way that works for me. Since I had my own study materials before I started lessons with her, she has worked with me to practice the material I studied already. I would definitely recommend her."
"Awesome teacher who makes homework fun and really helped me boost my chinese in just a few weeks, Xièxiè!"
"I enrolled in a local Chinese school and she was my teacher. I learned a lot about Chinese history and culture in addition to the actual language. Highly
"I was taking Chinese at university level, but my professor was very fast paced and I didn't get much practice speaking. That's why I loved taking lessons
with Zhenni! She's very thorough - correcting my grammar, tones or pronunciation whenever I make a mistake so that I don't develop bad habits. She also supplied a lot of additional insight into how modern people speak Chinese, so that I would sound more authentic and not just repeat lines I learned from a text book. Zhenni is also very personable and easy to talk to, which I found really helped me not be so self conscious when she would ask me to have a conversation in Chinese."
"Sonia was concise and clear-I'm learning quickly from her."
"Sharon is such an awesome teacher! She was sooo patient with me and gracious as she helped me learn new language and corrected my tones. I loved having he
r as my teacher!"
"Our first instructor. She is lovely, knowledgeable and professional."
