Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

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!

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!

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!

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.

About Matt

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.

He was really understanding to the fact that I haven't been speaking much Chinese for the past 6 months. He went at a good pace and helped me understand all the vocabulary.

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.

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Mandarin Chinese Teacher

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.

About Chaowei

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.

You will hav

e a lot of fun learning Chinese with me!

I am a native speaker who is fully bilingual. Take lessons with me to learn how to flirt, order at a restaurant, slang, and impress Chinese and non-Chinese people. I'll teach you wisdom from the culture. I'll also introduce you to Chinese humor.

About Angela

Dear future student,
Did you ever wish you could say more than nihaoma?
Does ni hao kai lan make you wish you could be fluent in Mandarin?
If so, let me know if you want to get started today in the basics of Mandarin.
Not only will you impress your mother, but you could impress your waiter and eventually tell jokes in Mandarin.
What are you waiting for?
Kuai xue ba!

"Angela is truly patient and very friendly. Her technique proves to be very helpful."
Abakar Brahim
"Great class. Thanks a lot."
Raquel
"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."
