Learn the basics of speaking and understanding the funny-sounding language known as Cantonese! Many outsiders deem Cantonese as an aggressive and loud language. This is true to an extent, but, there is much fun, beauty, and history to this language as well!

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

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

There are less than a handful of Cantonese learning materials out there, and most of them are outdated. With over 9 years of teaching experience, I will help you speak the language with confidence and make sure you don't sound like a time traveler from the past. (But if you are one, hit me up!)

My students include beginners who would like to try something new; sons & daughters who wish to communicate with their family; people who are interested in Chinese culture; and professionals who want to speak fluently in business settings. Send me a message today and see how we can reach your goals together! All ages welcome!

Grace
I learnt musical singing as a hobby. I wasn't very confident in catching the right beat and pitch, even though I really enjoyed singing. Helena was very patient and helped me build confidence gradually. She picked songs that fit my voice range and also my style, so I became more comfortable and could even perform a solo at a studio showcase! Helena was also clear in pointing out and explaining the things that I needed to pay attention when reading the scores. It was a great experience learning singing from her.
Mavis Chan
Helena is a amazing vocal teacher. Very friendly, passionate, supporting and professional.
She have taught me various vocal warm ups and technical excerises to train my voice. My voice has became stronger. Not only the techiques i learned , she also let me know how to telling the story in singing and enchanced the enjoyment of performing full time.
