I have got my Master degree in Education in China, with a high school teaching credential. I have passed the violin performance exam Level 10 in China, and once played in the first students Symphony in the city. I have been teaching Chinese and Violin in bay area for years. I am very experienced in customizing private lessons for students of different age, with a lot of successful experiences to share with you:)

My class is designed in a student-friendly way. I will always discuss your learning goals and expectations at the very beginning; I believe a mutual understanding of the big picture between the student and the teacher will serve a good start. I enjoy exchanging ideas with my students in the class and let them dig deeper through this two-way communication. In my class, you can learn with joy, making a steady progress step by step. I will also introduce a most-fit textbook to you, with plenty of supplementary learning materials provided, as well as a customized teaching plan offered based on your goals and learning progress.
Course benefits include:
- 1-on-1, or 1-on-more tailor-made executive private tutoring lessons
- Most flexible option and suited to busy lifestyles
- Having lessons on your preferred timetable
- Focusing solely on your learning requirements and obstacles
- Opportunities to practice in the class with timely feedback

Now I am offering private violin and Chinese lessons. If you have any question regarding my courses, please contact: lartstutor at gmail or send a message online to me. I am looking forward to working with you soon:)

Lin was very professional and well prepared for my 10 year old son's first lesson. He enjoyed working with Lin and thought she was very thorough. I like how she spent time reviewing the lesson and homework with me when I came to pick him up.

Ms Lin teaches my son violin. We had tried a professional school earlier, but were not satisfied. So we gave home tutoring a shot. We have been very impressed with Ms Lin. She is dedicated and patient and both strict and playful at the same time, which works well for kids. We would highly recommend Ms Lin for violin lessons.

My daughter, currently 14, has been learning Chinese from her for about a year so far, and she really enjoys it. I can tell that she has learned a lot from Ms. Lin so far, and she really enjoys it. Ms. Lin is a native and is knowledgeable. My daughter is naturally very curious, and Ms. Lin has been able to answer her questions with patience. I would definitely recommend Ms. Lin to another student.

Ms. Lin is a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic teacher. She is good with kids and genuinely wants them to learn and gain a passion for the violin. She was a very good teacher for my kid as she started her violin career.

My two kids stayed with Ms Lin and their Mandarin has improved quite a lot. They also enjoyed the interesting chats Ms Lin brought up every time. They not only improved speaking, writing, but also learnt quite a lot about Chinese culture. Thank you Ms Lin!

I have had Ms Lin teaching my son for a year. It has been a big difference since my son switched from his after school program to Ms Lin. Before, he hated the tedious writing homework and school. Now he is interacting with Ms Lin with intense interest, enjoying the class. I can also tell my son's Chinese improving significantly.

Because Lin has done such a good job, I now have my daughter taking lesson from Lin as well.

My 13 yo son wanted to learn violin, and I found Lin's profile online and she seemed like a good fit. Her communication was prompt, and her schedule flexibliity worked well for us. She's very friendly, supportive and always provides clear instructions during the lesson as well as specific homework for my son to practice in between lessons.

Lin teaches my 6 year old son the beginning level violin lessons in fluent English. She is very patient, dedicated, professional, has an excellent understanding of music and a good musicality. Within the 6 months of learning, my son can play many lovely songs, like Jingo Bells, Odd to Joy. He has made tremendous improvement, and can move his fingers on G, D, and A string freely, and can read the notes faster than we do. Lin provides different versions of violin classes, one for adults and the other for kids. She is a wonderful teacher, helps us enhance our knowledge of musical theory and definitely violin too. We highly recommend her.

Lin is an amazing tutor. She is dedicated and more importantly provides the right set of tools and tips to make learning easier. She is extremely punctual and always works around schedules and is very accommodating. I started learning from her recently and an optimistic about where I will get a few months from now.

Lin's biggest asset is that she likes to know what you expect from the whole experience and coaches accordingly.
