How can an AP Chinese tutor help you?
Enrolling in AP Chinese Language and Culture gives high school students the chance to undertake a challenging, fast-paced curriculum that is typically meant to parallel the experience of an introductory college-level course in Chinese. In addition, it allows students to gain valuable insight into China's rich and long cultural history, while learning the ins and outs of the language.
While Chinese is widely regarded as one of the toughest languages for English speakers to learn, a number of professional and academic opportunities could arise if you achieve proficiency in the language. Passing the AP Chinese Language and Culture exam with a great score will also allow you to earn college credits for introductory Chinese classes. This means that you could earn college credits before you even set foot on a university campus.
It requires a lot of time and dedication to become proficient in Chinese. Because of the language's difficult nature, AP Chinese can quickly take you from a seemingly manageable scenario to throwing you into a completely overwhelming situation. This is especially true in the midst of a busy junior or senior year schedule that takes away from your studying time.
One of the best ways that you can stay on top of your Chinese studies is to get help with your classwork by working with a private AP Chinese tutor. Varsity Tutors can help you find a dedicated and professional tutor who is skilled at teaching AP Chinese. By connecting with these tutors and engaging in one-on-one lessons, you will notice that AP Chinese tutoring can help you master both the course and the exam in a structured, stress-free manner. Many AP Chinese tutors are previous AP students themselves, and all of them have the linguistic knowledge and teaching acumen necessary to help you improve your understanding of the courses material.
We understand you are a unique student, and that the concepts and vocabulary that you find difficult are not necessarily the same as what other students find challenging. That is why our educational directors work carefully to help you select a tutor who is best suited to your particular academic profile, based on your goals in the class, your previous knowledge of Chinese, the aspects of the course that you have already mastered, and the content with which you struggle. Your individually selected tutor can then use this information to create a customized learning curriculum for you to follow during your AP Chinese tutoring sessions. Having a hard time remembering all those Chinese characters? Your tutor can share tried-and-true studying techniques to help you not just memorize new characters and vocabulary, but incorporate them into your work successfully.
If you find yourself to be confused by certain aspects of Chinese culture, especially if you are struggling to understand something covered in previous lessons, your tutor can help you develop a deeper understanding of concepts by associating them with topics and concepts that are familiar to you.
Wondering how to begin studying for the AP exam, and in what manner? Your tutor can help you organize and review your knowledge in an effective and efficient way, reducing your stress. He or she can even share test-taking strategies that are specific to each section of the AP Chinese exam, as well as provide you with practice material so you can know what you will be facing on test day. If the pace or rigor of your AP Chinese class feels overwhelming or the AP Chinese exam has you feeling apprehensive, call your local Varsity Tutors office now and ask for help finding a private tutor! You can choose to study together over the internet, or have your tutor meet you at any location that is convenient for you in person, or even face-to-face online through the Varsity Tutors live learning platform.
