*** Lesson Details ***
First, I need to talk to my students about their goals. Not only for the adult, teacher also need to know what kids want to know about music. They are interested in it sometimes, they just don't know. Second, I will let them know, interests is just the first step. If you want to learn, you have to pay! Pay your patient, and your endeavor. I will teach in some specific ways to motive students to approach the goals. for example: listen, singing, playing, reading is the process to make the students catch the goal faster without lost their interests! So involve more activities in the lessons is very important! Also, serious technique practice is necessary. As I mentioned before, not only interests, if you want to learn , you have to pay. Once you catch your goal, you will feel happy that the teacher has been pushed you for some boring finger exercise.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I do have a grand piano at home.For violin students, they should have their own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki style, classical, contemporary, modern music

Kan seemed very qualified and the first lesson or so went well with the exception of hearing her child cry on and off throughout the lesson and make an appearance on camera as well. We tried to be understanding. Unfortunately we learned she has quite a temper. Our Internet went down and caused problems in our Skype connection. We tried to contact her and Skype said she was unavailable. It took some time to unravel it. When we finally got back in touch with Kan 16 minutes after the lesson started, instead of listening and understanding that we had technical problems, she yelled at us and kept brandishing her phone at the camera to "prove" that she was ready for the lesson. She barely let us get a word in. She very firmly told us we would be paying for the lesson and continued to hold her phone up to the camera. We wanted to just continue the lesson in it's shortened form, but she refused to put her phone down and kept talking over us. Our goal was to remedy the situation; after this, we wanted nothing further to do with Kan. She upset our daughter and that's the end of that. Be warned.

Learn the basics of speaking and understanding the funny-sounding language known as Cantonese! Many outsiders deem Cantonese as an aggressive and loud language. This is true to an extent, but, there is much fun, beauty, and history to this language as well!

About Austin
Hello! My name is Austin, and my personal life motto is: doing my best to help others realize and reach their best! I have been teaching a number of topics ranging from music, fitness, to technology, writing, and religious texts for over 7 years. Over these years, I have also worked a myriad of jobs to receive invaluable experience as well as learn how to interact with all kinds of people.

It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently studying for my masters at Western Seminary, interning at a church in Milpitas, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.

Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple y
et profound way to practice this!

I can teach in the best way~!

About ali
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 t
he same time. I hope my student to love music instead of just playing the music.

Chensi is very professional and a patient and cheery instructor. Her lesson was well-prepared and she was clear and attentive in her explanations and in monitoring my understanding. Her follow-up after the lesson helped me to practice effectively until next lesson.

Chensi is very helpful in teaching me read music. As a beginner, read music was the most difficult part, since it would slow down the practice pace. Chensi is very skillful in reading music through a faster way, which letting my progress efficient.

Grew up in a Megacity, Shanghai, I was surrounded by different culture, food and people. Moving to the states at age of 16 allows me to experience western culture and build strong English communication skills. Chinese lessons with me will be personalized, well-explained and of course FUN! Not only I will teach you the language, but also the culture and history.

I recently graduated from University of Washington, Seattle. I have earned a degree of Bachelor oF Science in Environmental Science and Resource Management, and a Bachelor of Art in Sociology. Spending 7 years in the PNW makes me fall in love with the mountains, the hikes, the lakes and basically everything nature has to offer. My hometown is Shanghai, China, where is always fast paced, multi-culture and so much more to offer. I have been tutoring ESL kids since high school, help them with their english and adapt better to the new environment. I have also worked with my western friends to improve their Chinese. In my free time, I love cooking, taking photos and traveling. I'm a good listener and very patient with my students. I want you to learn something but also TO HAVE FUN!
