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

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.

Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I am an American born in Los Angeles, CA. I was trained by some of the best Chinese language teachers while at UC Berkeley for my undergraduate degree. I entered into the Chinese Bridge Competition held every year, and was the number one American, Chinese language speaker. I was sent to China where I competed against top talent in almost every other country in the world and took first prize that year. After winning this competition, I continued training at UCLA where I got my Masters in East Asian Studies, so I am also trained in Ancient Chinese. The UCLA newspaper had my story on the front page which can now be viewed online through a search. I have continued using Mandarin on a daily basis and know the ins-and-outs of learning this difficult language as an American English speaker.

I'm really enjoying my lessons with Yuexin. She's very patient and is able to answer all my questions. She's also happy to customize the lesson to suit my interests; for example, we took some time to go over voice lines in a video game that were in Chinese and then work on the pronunciation and pinyin for them.

The textbook and workbook she had me get have been helpful, and I've been supplementing by practicing on my own using Duolingo. I think the combination has been really effective for learning the language. Yuexin has been great for correcting my pronunciation and teaching me how native speakers would actually speak and write.

Yuexin is an excellent Mandarin teacher for kids. My 8 year-old has started lessons and is progressing well. Yuexin researched and picked out a good textbook for kids. She is patient, clear, and easy to schedule with. We are happy!

Online Mandarin Chinese Teacher

As an international student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, language is always one of my most familiar tools. From my past experience of tutoring high schoolers and adults, I believe a language is not only about vocabulary, grammar or accent, but also built by the culture and history behind. I'd like to help students to not only be good at a language, but also get to know the the people and the place that make the language valuable. Learning a language should never be boring while we discover the mysterious origin of every rule and word together.

About Meiling

I always introduce myself as a people person. Since elementary school, I have involved in various activities that enable me to interact with people. The interaction or communication among people makes the society and our lives more fun and fulfilled, and we cannot accomplish this without languages.

Online Mandarin Chinese Teacher

I am native speaker in Chinese, and now live and work in Los Angeles. Before I came to American to earn my master degree from NYU, I had four years teaching experience as TA and instructor in shanghai. At that time, I found my passion for teaching.

My goal is to simplify Chinese study and let you learn it with less pain and struggle. I will make you fall in love with Chinese-learning, and I DO believe that interest is the best teacher. Plus, I teach Chinese online with Mandarin pronunciation which had received intense professional training (mandarin without any local accent).

Living and working in the US helps me understand language-learning is not only about grammar or vocabulary, but also at the Chinese way of thinking. Let me help you speak and think like a real Chinese.

Miss Ge is a very professional and passionate teacher. I had her Mandarin lesson online and she helped me to fall in love with language learning just like she has promised. To me, the most important thing of language learning is to trigger and maintain interest and she did it. I would highly recommend her to everyone.
