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!

We are absolutely thrilled with our experience with Tammy. My two sons meet with her online to review the Mandarin language they take at school. The extra 30 min. a week of conversation and tone work is invaluable. I would rate Tammy a 10/10 as she sends highlights, a review and suggestions of study for the week after each lesson. If a person can have teenage boys look forward to "extra" Chinese weekly, they deserve a medal!

I am a native Chinese speaker and am passionate and patient about teaching!

About Yuexin
Hi! I am an undergraduate student at Colorado College, majoring in Comparative Literature and Music. I am from Shenzhen, China, and moved to the U.S. when I was 18.

I play the banjo, do all forms of arts, and have a never-dying crave for traveling. I lived in Brazil and Finland for a little while. I have a talent in learning new languages and am passionate about teaching them.

I have taught Chinese to people of all age. I specialize in teaching listening and speaking. If you would like to take lessons with me in person, then I am good at teaching reading and writing as well. My strength is in my patience for my students. I understand that learning a new language, especially Chinese, is not an overnight progress. As a language learner myself, I emphasize with the frustration, yet the excitement of learning the language and the cultu
re.

So trust me! Let yourself or your child be in good hands.

Grew up in America (born in Taiwan) for over 13 years and native speaker of both English and Mandardin Chinese.

About Bill
I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I enjoy tutoring and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!

I tend to have a busy schedule with my work, but Bill is accommodating and punctual. In our lessons, we go over topics I struggle with and he thinks of variations of the problem that may appear on the exam to guarantee I fully mastered the concepts. I rather be overprepared than failing and studying for the GMAT all over again.

Bill is superb at asking leading questions to discover my own weaknesses and mistakes so we can fix them together and get to the correct answer.
 
Having someone to bounce various approaches to a problem really helped me understand how to solve the exercises as opposed to just memorizing the solutions

Firstly, I speak standard Mandarin Chinese from North Eastern China, which is the same kind of pronunciation found in professional teaching material and stipulated by the People Republic of China. Secondly, I have over ten years experience teaching second language to students of all ages and proficiency levels, which includes preparing students to take the HSK. Thirdly, I earned a bachelors degree and teaching certificate in teaching English, which has given me the pedological and speaking skills to explain Chinese grammar and culture to beginning level Chinese speakers.

你好 !My name is 强耀萱, but if you are a beginner you can just call me “Alina” for now.

I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese. Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences/ phrases and as time goes on, you'll be able to perfect your tones! I typically use practice books and have worksheets. I love working with students of all experience levels. Speaking is very important as much as reading/ recognizing characters. You'll be able to practice writing the characters the right way.

About Kevin
I studied classical piano for 19 years from a piano teacher who was from Julliard. I passed A.B.R.S.M. grade 8 piano test as well as the NYSSMA Grade 6 test. I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach students to read music, learn music theory, prepare for music exams and learn how to play using sheet music depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a pianist, I like to play classical, covers from movies, video games, and pop. I love to mentor students who want to become proficient in picking up any sheet music and start playing it.

My personal passion is music from movies and shows but I firmly believe that having great technique is essential to any kind of style of music. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. I believe that to learn a foreign language, students must understand the basics of the culture. My lessons include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students. I also share my impressions and experience with students, so they are more interested in the subject, motivated and inspired to learn a Mandarin Chinese.

Most of the students are afraid of learning Chinese because of Chinese characters and the tones, but I will show you that it can be quite easy and fun. Chinese characters are the soul of Chinese language and I would like to lead you into the wonderful world of Chinese characters learning,

I am here to assist you in your own unique Mandarin Chinese language-learning journey. I don't use only one book, so we won't have a page by page language process, we will actually write our own book which will be tailored to your needs, I believe ...

About Eugenia
Hi,
I am Eugenia
A happy Mandarin Chinese teacher who is truly passionate about teaching. I am a language coach committed to helping you achieve your unique Chinese language learning goals!

From a young age I have had a hard working spirit and a deep desire to learn. I found it extremely interesting, challenging and enjoyable to learn foreign languages and cultures. I speak, read and write proficiently the following languages: English, Mandarin and Russian. I sing in all three languages, enjoy travelling and love sharing my knowledge and experience related to the cultures behind each language.

I graduated with Honors from Moscow City Teacher Training University with a Master’s degree in Linguistics. I studied abroad in the UK and China. In 2012, I participated in the summer school language program in the United Kingdom (Cambridge Regi
onal College, advanced English). In 2013, I had chance to join a student exchange program for 6 months in China at Nanjing University. In 2014, I was awarded a one-year Full Chinese Government scholarship to study at Fudan University, which is one of the top 5 universities in China. There I studied advanced Chinese, Chinese culture, history and calligraphy. I love exploring different cultures by traveling and communicating with locals. I am happy that my passion became my profession. Studying abroad introduced me to different learning and teaching methods, which greatly helped on my career as a foreign language teacher.

I specialize in tutoring Mandarin Chinese. I have six years of experience with one-on-one teaching as well as teaching in a classroom setting. I have taught Mandarin Chinese and English to students from 1st to 11th grade at a Chinese Language Specialty School in Moscow and to second year university students. I also prepare students for each level of Chinese proficiency qualifications (YCT, HSK).

I am a certified language coach and I help my clients to learn Mandarin Chinese more effectively and efficiently. I am working successfully with tech companies and startups giving Mandarin Chinese coaching sessions to executives.

Learn Mandarin Chinese with me your way, enjoy your learning journey and you will see the results!

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 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!
