"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 had my first lesson with Kelvin and it was very good. Kelvin made me feel very comfortable and we focused on the various tones used in learning and speaking Mandarin. I look forward to my next class this coming weekend.

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.

Joy is lovely and has been very flexible with my schedule. You can tell she loves photography and enjoys teaching. If I was more of an online learner I would have rated the session a 5. I am now realizing I am more of a hands on person it is personally challenging for me to learn using this method. In an ideal world we would be learning by shooting in real time.

My first time taking lessons online. We introduced ourselves, He wanted to know where I was musically and what my goals were. This is a very important feature because I will get more out of the class. He also has a warm and inviting sense of humor which helped me to feel comfortable in my first online lesson. Looking forward to the rest to see how far he will take me.(I have a feeling I will be impressed.

My daughter has been taking voice lessons from Junbo for 1 year now. He is very good at encouraging my daughter to develop her breathing and we've seen a huge improvement in her singing ability because of that! He is also very concerned about music selection and whether or not my daughter likes the music she is singing, but also steering her towards the kinds of songs that work best for her voice.

It was a very good 1st lesson. I would give it 5 stars. This rating is for this lesson only. I am not saying she is the best instructor ever. As we proceed with lessons I will make further evaluations from time to time; not after each lesson. Garrett

Hello, everyone! My name is Wei Wei. I am a teacher who serves children with special needs in a non-profit organization. I have also been a Chinese teacher at Chinese school of South Jersey for over three years. In school, I love to create my students an active, interesting environment to learn. I would play fun games, use flash cards, or read stories to help their understanding of lessons. I also do the same thing in my tutoring: I provide what my student needs and adjust my way of teaching for different types of students based on their ages, interests, and the levels. I have tutored varied ages of students from seven years old to 60 years old. Two of my tutoring students even have been working with me more than two years.

I love my job and I enjoy helping my students learn Chinese and seeing their progress. With my tutoring, I will teach you how to use Pinyin system to learn Chinese pronunciation. We will also learn other parts of Chinese language, includes reading, speaking, and ...

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.
