At first I was very apprehensive with the online format as never tried that before, but needn't as XiaoMing was an excellent teacher. Helped me to translate passages in simple Chinese for me to make in my presentation. Corrected me on my tones which I needed. A clever guy who is flexible to do Business Chinese or Conversational Chinese. Recommended.

As a piano dummie myself, Xiaoming shows me a direction to work on. He can show me how to play all the music I mention in class. He has his own method to teach me without knowing how to read music. And he is a patient and charming person to hang out with.
