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
- Most flexible option and ...

In my class, you can learn with joy, making a steady progress step by step. I will also introduce a most-fit textbook to you, with plenty of supplementary learning materials provided, as well as a
customized teaching plan offered based on your goals and learning progress.

- Most flexible option and suited to busy lifestyles
- Having lessons on your preferred timetable

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.

Mastering fundamentals is extremely important when learning a language. This is especially true for Chinese. We'll first practice the basic sounds and tones. Then we'll learn practical travel Chinese--practicing simple conversations. Once you get your footing, we'll expand your vocabulary and understanding of grammar.

About Joy
I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading, writing, and speech.

Photography has been one of my main areas of focus for over ten years. I am trained in both film and digital formats and specialize in demystifying the DSLR so that you gain a good understanding of manual settings and how to use each to improve your photos.

Caring, compassion, and understanding are essential for learning and I strive to do my best in these areas.

She is super friendly and nice, and makes learning easy to understand. I am moving to china in a few days so I took a few lessons from Grace so that I would know enough to move out there with, even though I will be learning at college there. I feel more confident knowing even just a little bit of Chinese before I move out there.

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.

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 (doing it ever since I was in high school for my classmates) 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!

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.

About Alina
你好 !My name is 强耀萱, but if you are a beginner you can just call me “Alina” for now. Firstly, I speak standard Mandarin Chinese from North Eastern China, which is the same kind of pronunciation you would find in professional teaching material at universities and is also stipulated by the Peoples Republic of China. Secondly, I have over ten years experience teaching second language to all ages and proficiency levels. I particularly have experience in teaching school children Chinese. I am also proficient in preparing students to take the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK). Thirdly, my bachelors degree is in English Education, so I understand important pedological methods and can explain grammar and cultural concepts to beginner level students.

Alina is wonderful. There's just no substitute for a professional teacher like her if you really want to learn a language. I think this is especially true for a language that is as difficult and foreign (to an English speaker at least) as Mandarin. Thanks to Alina, I finally have gotten the hang of the tones and am learning the characters for real. I LOVE the textbook she teaches out of--it's part of a very thorough series of Chinese language-learning textbooks, the sort you would use in an actual class at a university or in an immersion program. In addition, she prepares pdfs which she sends me to supplement the textbook vocabulary/grammar. We're on chapter 6 now and I'm feeling very excited and motivated because after years of wanting to learn Mandarin and dabbling casually with various materials, I feel that I've finally begun to make progress.

Alina, in addition to being a great teacher, is also a very warm and considerate person. She won't make you feel pressured or uncomfortable if you aren't perfectly prepared for your lesson. She's also been very conscientious about sending materials, being on time for our lessons, and making sure that I understood all of the lesson material, even if it means going a little over the designated hour. I highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about learning Mandarin.

My Mandarin lessons will start with basic vocabulary and phonetics in different themes: greeting, number, family, hobbies, etc. We'll then proceed to the grammar rules and some funny expressions widely used in China. I tailor my Mandarin lessons based on my students needs and their levels. I'd like to teach my students not just the oral communication of the language (i.e. Pinyin) but also the written form, so please let me know if you'd like to only focus on Pinyin or the communication aspect.

About Jane
Hello! My name is Jane and I teach Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese Chinese and English as a Second Language (ESL). I'm a native speaker in Mandarin and Cantonese but growing up English had been my worst nightmare until I found my interest in it during high school. I then majored in it at college, graduated with 1st class honor and a few awards, and tutored elementary students to spark their interests in language learning. I'm excited to share my passion and language skills with you!
