"I've been teaching Chinese for 15 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Chinese culture, study abroad in Asia, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!
Chinese language learning materials as part of an integrated curriculum designed to motivate students in non-native Chinese environments to start speaking Chinese.

About Kelvin
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis.
I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham.
I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system.
Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc....
The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

I am a native Chinese speaker. I can speak five languages. I have years of languages (Chinese & English) teaching experience. I am certified to teach in public schools in China. I believe interaction and immersion are effective approaches to learn a new language. Learning a new language with a native speaker is ten times efficient than learning from language apps. Lessons are customized. Communicative language and Chinese culture would be prioritized while making lesson plans. To learn a new language, it's not simply about the language itself. The more you know about the culture, the better you appreciate the language.

About Guifang
I have more than eight years of language teaching experience. I have learned five languages over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese when I was 19 and I founded my first summer camp in China when I was 20. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

Interest is the best teacher. When I taught non-nati
ve Chinese speakers (in China, South Korea and the U.S) Chinese, it seemed it stimulated their curiosity and interest to learn Chinese when cultural elements were introduced--such as characters' origin and visualization, historical contexts and cultural traditions. I hope that approach can also bring you an enjoyable experience learning a new language!

To help you be able to use Chinese, our language learning is mainly through interactive and communicative approaches. Talk! Talk! Talk! Please don't be shy. It's okay to make mistakes. Learning from mistakes is also a very effective way to learn a new language. We can make more contextualized dialogues based on whatever textbook you are using now. Or we can produce functional conversation based on everyday topics that you are interested. Lesson plans are customized and they can be flexible.

Ready to get on the boat and sail on the sea of Chinese? :)

I went to Miss Xue's summer camp and learned English from her for two years. She was very nice and patient. The knowledge and skills that she told us were very helpful. My English grade increased from 60s to 80s. I really appreciated with her help.

I am a student at Cornell University pursuing a degree in China Asia-Pacific Studies. I have been studying Mandarin for over 6 years and have spent time living and studying in China. Sessions are perfect for students who are interested and want to learn the basic principles of speaking Mandarin; tones, pronunciation, listening, and writing. Students will develop the confidence to continue learning as well as an appreciation for Chinese language and culture. Let's get started!

About Tredarin
I have been Djembe drumming since the age of 5, taught by some of the country's top drum masters. After learning all I could about the traditions and customs around the djembe I began specializing in modernizing djembe and incorporating it into all genres and forms of music.

I drum in all venues, Salsa dances, clubs, reunions and concerts. Artists I have worked with include Ryan Kilgore, Keaira LaShae and a variety of DJ's and local artists.

I am a native Chinese, speaking Mandarin and writing Chinese. I received Chinese Mandarin Teacher Qualification in a Chinese professional mandarin school. This certificate allowed me to work in China as a Mandarin Tutor. And this certificate is also admitted in USA and lots of other foreign countries. Now I live in Bay area and have lots of kids and adults students. And I am also teaching my boy Mandarin as he was born in USA.
If you're looking for an organized, patient and experienced tutor, please feel free contact me. I will first make some time for you to talk about what I can do for you. My teaching goal is helping students to speak Chinese better from any level, and be interested in Chinese culture. Very hope I can get this chance!

About Emma

I have tutored a lot of students and helped them improve their Chinese as well as my son. To correct their pronunciation, writing and know lots of Chinese characters. And I'll assess your current Chinese level and provide proper advice and materials. I will match your lesson plan according to your level and interest. Also, I will continuously monitor course quality to ensure your needs are being met.

I am a recent graduate of UGA (3.8 GPA, magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) with majors in political science and international affairs to go along with minors in both Chinese and Japanese. Although I myself am not a native speaker of the languages I tutor, I have extensive experience in each and can identify with students of these languages who are just starting out on their language learning adventures or want to step up from the beginner level. With students, I bring in a variety of media (videos, music, articles, calligraphy) which not only help students become accustomed to the language but also the context in which it is used, a critical component of language learning (especially in East Asia). I have travelled to Asia multiple times (including studying abroad in Singapore) and can draw from my experiences to provide a better understanding of the area.

About Alexander
Hello everyone! My name is Alexander (Alex). I am a recent graduate of the University of Georgia (with majors in political science and international affairs as well as minors in Chinese and Japanese). Previously I have worked as a Mandarin Chinese tutor for elementary school-aged kids and enjoyed the opportunity to make my own lesson plans and teach what I want to rather than just helping classmates with random assignments or completing busywork. Outside of Chinese I am well-qualified to tutor students in other subjects as well, some of which include Japanese, history, geography, and even writing. I am an IB Diploma recipient, graduated near the top of my high school class, graduated magna cum laude from UGA and was initiated into Phi Beta Kappa.

I have always viewed helping people as one of the most important things I could do and my pe
rsonal philosophy is that any activity is worth doing as long as you learn something from it and enjoy it. To me, tutoring is the intersection of these two ideas and can therefore fulfill my desire not only to help people but to provide them with a chance to learn something new. With tutoring, I can become far more acquainted with the students than in a conventional classroom, learn about what works best for them, and use all of my available resources to create a unique as well as effective lesson plan. As long as a person is willing to learn, I am ecstatic to help them reach their goals and become a more globally aware person. As for my methods, I could be described as a "by the book" kind of instructor who makes use of numerous textbooks or related materials to form a well-rounded lesson plan. For example, one session may be just learning vocabulary or grammar and then another week may be spent learning about the origins of the language or making cultural arts and crafts. It is not out of the ordinary for lessons to include a bit of everything if time provides. I stress reviewing the material often and because of that I may create flashcards, give homework, or provide access to certain resources online which may help the student memorize the material between lessons. If something needs to be reviewed, I will make sure it is well-learned before jumping to the next topic so as to make sure the student does not become lost amidst an avalanche of unfamiliar terms. I also like to integrate videos or my own personal experience into the lessons so the students may see the real-world applications of the skills they are learning.
