Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Today we were reviewing the student's class material for his quiz tomorrow. He was covering greetings and introductions. We were able to clarify some of his questions in regards to grammar, and I was also able to introduce some new material that was relevant to the topic. Toward the end of the session, I gave him a review of what we covered. Based off of that, he should be ready for his quiz.

The student was very focused today. We were able to accomplish a lot during the session and he was an active participant in his learning. First, he completed his homework through page 96. He did this independently, for the most part, with some guidance from me on understanding written Chinese sentences. Next, we spent a few minutes on his dictation words for next week. He wrote them very well, so he'll study them on his own. We spent most of the time working on the story that he needs to write for school. He came up with a plot line and I prompted him to expand the plot. Using a dictionary when he needed to, he then wrote the story in Chinese, and illustrated it.

This is the last session before the final exam, so we tried to review everything the student learned this semester. We went over all the quizzes and tests she had. I pointed out the important grammar section she needs to review and explained to her the parts she didn't quite understand.

This session we focused on reviewing previous material. I gave the student a quiz on all the vocabulary we had learned. He did well but there were a couple characters he had forgotten. We also reviewed some grammar points, and I gave him homework from his workbook.

I taught the student words that had to do with winter during the first lesson. Words such as cold, gloves, scarf, hot, fire, blanket, snow etc. I reviewed everything I've taught him since our first lesson together.

We reviewed new words from lesson 14, then studied the related text section. We went through some grammar points, especially preposition use and I answered the client's questions. I also I provided related vocabulary and phrases, as well as words that are easy to confuse. We made sentences and went over a lot of exercises. Then, he learned new words from lesson 15 and got through half of the language notes.

The student and I practiced making sentences using "I like". We went through "I like school, I like basketball, I like math." We then used the terms for basketball, math, and school to say " x is fun." I also taught her how to say happy new year. The student and I ran through his action routine quickly and practiced the new terms.

We have reviewed all the lessons and finished Unit 1. The student is able to communicate with the sentences that he learned. He asks questions that show his interests in both the language and the culture. He also learned how to count the numbers and has started to write Chinese characters.

How can a instructor help you make sense of Mandarin Chinese through tutoring?

As a spoken language that requires precise understanding of tonality, and as a difficult written language that requires patience and discipline for rote memorization, Mandarin Chinese can be one of the most difficult modern languages to learn. Unlike Romance languages, in which English speakers already have a foundation, Mandarin Chinese can, at times, appear so foreign that fluency seems all but unattainable. When the difference between “mother” and “horse” is but one easily confused tone, there isn't much room for error! Mandarin Chinese tutoring can help.

Fortunately, Varsity Tutors has experienced tutors across the Washington DC metro area, inside and outside the beltway, who can help you succeed on your journey in learning this most foreign of foreign languages. Many of our Mandarin tutors are native speakers who can clearly explain the subtleties of tonality and pronunciation. Others are former Mandarin learners who have mastered the language and have a clear understanding of exactly what it takes for an English speaker to overcome his or her sticking points. Whatever level of Mandarin Chinese tutoring you’re looking for, Varsity Tutors can pair you with a skilled tutor who will tailor a lesson plan that works for you, the individual. Call us today and let Varsity Tutors help you on your way to Mandarin fluency with some individualized Mandarin Chinese tutoring in Washington DC!

We’ll help you learn Mandarin Chinese through one-on-one tutoring in the comfort of your own home or another location of your choice. Trying to learn to speak, read, or write Mandarin Chinese without the benefit of a tutor can be a frustrating experience. For example, Mandarin Chinese is a language which depends heavily on subtleties of pronunciation and meaning. Without the benefit of feedback from someone already fluent in the language, it’s difficult to assess whether your language skills are actually progressing.

Whether you’re a current language student seeking to improve your skills or someone who’s new to the language entirely, an experienced Varsity Tutors Mandarin Chinese tutor is here to make your language-learning efforts as productive and enjoyable as possible. Your friendly Mandarin Chinese tutor will talk to you about your concerns and learning goals, assess your proficiency with the language, and quickly develop a customized study program that meets your individual needs. Most importantly, your tutor will give you the encouragement and immediate feedback you need to remain excited about your goals. Along the way, your tutor will answer questions, identify trouble areas, and serve as a partner in conversations. As you gradually begin to refine your pronunciation, enlarge your vocabulary, and polish your conversational skills, you’ll gain a deeper appreciation for Mandarin Chinese, as well as the confidence you need to take your Mandarin Chinese language skills to the next level of sophistication.
