Teaches students:

Teaching since:
March 2017

My name is Ali Y, I graduated from Boston University with a master degree in 2017. Before I graduate, I started to teach violin and Mandarin in Takelessons, as you can see in my reviews, I have a very high rating since I started, every student like to play violin with me because I always can see their smile in the lesson.

I’ve begun to study in BU with Professor Bayla Keyes since 2015, in these two years, I’ve learned a lot from her, not only my violin skill but also a lot of teaching methods.

I got my bachelor degree in Renmin University of China, which is one of the best university in China. I had 24 students before I came to the States, several of them won the first prize in different violin competition.

I’m very patient. And I know how to commute with students. Most of my student can learn very fast and be very happy at the same time. I hope my student to love music instead of just playing the music.

It has been only 3 classes with Ali. My daughter is motivated to practice every day which itself is a wonderful thing.

Ali is very good at getting young students' attention. My son became Ali's student two months ago. He liked her and was able to follow her lecture. Ali is also very kind and funny. We love her.

I found Ali through Thumbtack where I searched a violin teacher for my 4yrs old daughter. After two lessons, I made a decision to learn together with my daughter. Ali is very friendly and nice and professional. I share the one hour lesson with my daughter with no extra fee charged. Time flexible too! I have been learned for two months, improved very fast after her guide. Recommended!

My daughter and Ali already created a good chemistry on their first lesson (which most of the time took awhile to instill). I couldn't wish for more.

Ali is a very talented violin player. When I first started lessons with her, I was a beginner. The violin sounded squeaky and miserable. I couldn't understand what I was doing wrong. Ali simply modified my hand angle, raised my elbow slightly, and made me stand up straighter. She said 'Try now', and the sound was beautiful - a huge difference! We both couldn't stop laughing. She really does know what she is doing and can teach really well. Not to mention, she is a really nice person. She also is flexible and will go along with my schedule. Thanks for everything Ali!
