Receive personally tailored Mandarin Chinese lessons from exceptional tutors in a one-on-one setting. We help you connect with in-home and online tutoring that offers flexible scheduling and your choice of locations.

Think about connecting to Varsity Tutors for Buffalo Chinese tutoring if you or your student is trying to learn Chinese. Chinese is considered one of the hardest languages for native English speakers to learn. This is because Chinese is significantly different than English in many ways. Just because Chinese is hard to learn does not mean it is impossible to learn. You or your student can receive the help you are seeking through a Buffalo Chinese tutor.

How can a Buffalo Chinese tutor near me help me learn?

There are many reasons why you or your student may be interested in learning Chinese. For one, learning Chinese can help you open up your communication to people across the globe. This can help you work in the international job market or help you during your travels. Additionally, learning Chinese can increase your chances of gaining acceptance into a study abroad program. If you or your student is taking a Chinese class in high school, Buffalo Chinese tutors can offer supplemental learning. No matter you or your student's reasoning for wanting to work with a private Chinese teacher, Varsity Tutors can connect you to the resources you are looking for.

If you or your student is trying to learn Chinese in a traditional classroom setting, Buffalo Chinese tutoring can offer out-of-the-classroom help. Students who are looking to get ahead or catch up can benefit from the one-on-one approach to learning that is supplied through private teaching sessions. If you are trying to learn about the four tones of Mandarin Chinese in class, but want help outside of class to feel more confident in this topic, a private instructor can spend as much time as you need reviewing tones. You can work with your private instructor to cover the flat, rising, falling than rising, and falling tones. In addition to this, you can even learn about other Chinese dialects and their tones. Some dialects use up to nine different tones to communicate. You or your student may enjoy learning Chinese in class so much that you want out-of-the-classroom help to learn more about this language than is offered in class. If that is the case, consider reaching out for Buffalo Chinese tutoring today!

When working with a private Chinese teacher, each session moves at your pace. You may be trying to learn about Chinese symbols, but some of the symbols are causing you confusion. There are around 20,000 characters that are used today, while there are over 50,000 characters that exist within the Chinese language. This pictographic language can overwhelm learners, but working with Buffalo Chinese tutors can provide you with a guided approach to learning. A private educator can review symbols and syllables at your pace, moving quickly through symbols you understand so you can spend more time on the symbols that are causing you to struggle. A Buffalo Chinese tutor can help you feel like a more well-rounded student.

Your private educator not only understands the various topics of Chinese, but they also understand how to teach students of all learning styles. Perhaps you or your student is an aural learner. If this is the case, your private instructor can create lesson plans that include back-and-forth verbal communication. This approach can help you feel more comfortable and confident in Chinese tones, pronunciation, and sentence structure. It is also possible that you or your student is a visual learner. Your private Chinese educator can pick up on your learning needs and construct study sessions designed with your specific way of learning in mind. For visual learners, your educator can create flashcards, pictures, or other visual tools to help the information you learn stick. You can enjoy a customized approach to learning with a Buffalo Chinese tutor.

Can Buffalo Chinese tutoring accommodate my busy schedule?

We understand that individuals looking to learn Chinese are busy. You may be the parent of a student who balances their full-time course load with extracurricular activities.

Instead of trying to rearrange your entire schedule to accommodate Chinese lessons, allow us to provide you with flexible options. We can find Buffalo Chinese tutors who are available to help you or student learn at a time and place that is most convenient.

Private Chinese learning sessions are available in-person or online. With the online option, individuals don't have to worry about making a commute to a lesson location. Instead, they can interact with their private instructor face-to-face through the Live Learning Platform. This platform utilizes video chat to help students work with their private teachers in a one-on-one setting. In addition to the video chat feature, students can also gain access to a shared documents editor, a visual whiteboard, and practice problems.

If you are interested in classroom learning, but don't have the time to take a Chinese class at a local college, consider signing up for an online class. We offer online classroom learning to students through a virtual classroom environment. Classes are lead by skilled and professional instructors who are dedicated to helping you learn Chinese in a way that is best for your needs.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Elaine in Buffalo, NY
We reviewed the last lesson on family vocabulary, including the Chinese pronunciations for home, family members, mom, dad, paternal/maternal grandpa and grandma, and other common vocabulary involving friends and where one's home is. Next, we learned how to tell the date and times of the day in Chinese. The new vocabulary we learned included year, month, day (two different ways), week, days of the week, Sunday (two different ways), hour, minute, half hour, morning, late morning, noon, afternoon, and evening. The student remembered the numbers 1-100 really well, and he quickly grasped how to tell the date and time in Chinese. I helped him practice pronouncing and writing the dates and times of the day, and we also practiced listening and identifying the dates and times. He has excellent pronunciation and listening skills in Chinese.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Hua in Buffalo, NY
We went through 50 flashcards and a book about farm animals I brought. We had a conversation about family members, siblings, and pets. I encouraged the students to use Chinese as much as possible during class. We went through words about numbers, colors, fruits, and animals. We then went through another set of flashcards and learned some new characters including nouns, adjectives etc.(sound, meaning, and writing). We reviewed body part, words they already knew, and then they learned new ones that they don't know. We learned some words about directions. We learned a song about ''twinkle twinkle little star'' in Chinese and another song about ''morning'' in Chinese. I gave them each a sheet to practice writing characters (about 20).

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Seth in Buffalo, NY
We covered Chapter 7 in detail. The student now knows how to say text in Chinese and knows its meaning in English. He has good pronunciation and just needs to focus on character recognition and tones.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Jessica in Buffalo, NY
The student and I began our session by discussing his homework assignments. We worked on a worksheet that was started in class. The worksheet was about a song and asked comprehension questions. After that, we corrected his test from last week so he could get some points back. He did quite well on his test, scoring an 87. After completing his assignments, we practiced dictation. I would say a sentence in Chinese 3-4 times, and he would write it down. He did a great job with this.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Shareen in Buffalo, NY
Today we reviewed everything that we have learned so far. The student is improving in his skills with constructing sentences with all the vocabulary. The more we practice pronouncing the words, the more he is improving with the pronunciation of the words. We learned how to say "I like" and "I dislike" and a variety of foods.

The student's Chinese lesson went well, and I am so glad that he has improved a lot lately. He is able to read a lot and write a lot. Of course, he has been working hard, and I am sure he will be very great in Chinese. I wish him a lot of luck on the exam tomorrow.
