Hi, there! My name is Dr. Chang-shin (aka Luke) and I can't wait to meet you and look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I've been teaching college courses and private lessons since 1990s. I love helping my students to learn Chinese Mandarin, Taichi, Chi-Qong, and passing the tests of English as a second language. I went to Temple University and earned a PH.D in the area of Humanities. I'm a patient teacher with a zeal of wanting to help my student to success.

My students describe me as a teacher with great sense of humor and wisdom. The atmosphere of my classes is professional but relaxed and inspiring.

Dr. Chang-shin is very knowledgeable in Qigong, Tai-chi, and meditation. He created a well balanced routine to meet my personal needs. I look forward to future classes with him.
