For those who are contemplating seeking out the assistance of a Charlotte Chinese tutor, Varsity Tutors can get you connected. Maybe your student is just getting started in a Mandarin Chinese class and is and feeling confused. You might be enrolled at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and need a helping hand. Perhaps you're hoping to better communicate with your international partners. It's possible you're just planning a trip overseas and want to make sure you can communicate on some level. No matter what your goals might be, investing in a little assistance from a private instructor can make sense.

What's the upside of working with a Charlotte Chinese tutor near me?

There are significant advantages to studying with Charlotte Chinese tutors, not least of which is having a Chinese expert at your disposal. Chinese is notorious for being one of the most difficult languages in the world to learn. It's not like studying Spanish or even Russian. There is no such thing as a Chinese alphabet. It is the only modern pictographic language. There are over 50,000 characters, only 20,000 characters currently in use, of which only 2,500 characters are seen with any kind of frequency, but that doesn't make it any easier to read or write because many of these symbols are literally derived from ancient drawings of the items they were meant to depict. To say it's complicated would be an understatement.

Having access to a Charlotte Chinese tutor to guide you through these complications can be more than helpful. These are individuals who have in-depth knowledge of the language. They can help you establish a firm understanding of the basics and help you build from there while prioritizing the most relevant information. If you wind up hitting a wall, they can look for different ways to explain the idea until it hits home. In a conventional classroom, it can be hard to find time to get this sort of one-on-one attention.

This attention is uniquely important when you're learning to speak Chinese. When you're learning to speak any other language, particularly in a classroom setting, the teacher traditionally will model pronunciation and have the class repeat it back. Even if the student doesn't pronounce it perfectly later on in conversation, a native speaker can still usually figure out what they're trying to say. That's more difficult with Chinese because it's what's called a tonal language, which means that the meaning of the word changes based on its pronunciation, and the same pronunciation in one dialect can mean something entirely different in another dialect, of which there are seven in Chinese.

Charlotte Chinese tutors can help in this capacity, particularly online instructors. Using the video function on the Live Learning Platform, they can directly engage you in conversation, modeling pronunciation and correcting yours in real-time to prevent bad habits from taking root. It also gives you a chance to get used to the pace of conversational Chinese, which typically takes place at a faster clip than what you might hear from a teacher in a classroom. You also have the ability to record these sessions so you can revisit them and practice the lessons at your convenience. This sort of instruction can be invaluable for students as they prepare to advance to higher-level courses where instruction is typically entirely in Chinese.

Charlotte Chinese tutoring can be tailored to your pace of learning. In a conventional classroom, the teacher has a set amount of material to cover in a set amount of time. The class schedule doesn't revolve around the needs and wants of one particular student. The lesson plan of your Charlotte Chinese tutor, however, does. If it turns out you need more or less time than initially anticipated on a given subject, they can shift the lesson plan around to accommodate you.

Another significant benefit of securing Charlotte Chinese tutoring is that it provides flexible, convenient assistance. We do the work to find you a private instructor who has availability when you have time to study. We also can find Charlotte Chinese tutors who give you flexibility in location. You get to choose where you engage in learning. Maybe that means you plug in some headphones, log in, and chat with your instructor online from the Hickory Grove Charlotte Mecklenburg Library. Maybe that means you curl up on your couch in your favorite pajamas and chat with them from there. Wherever you feel comfortable and best able to focus works. You also have the ability to access a variety of resources on our Live Learning Platform platform at any time outside of your tutoring sessions, meaning you can you continue your studies whenever is most convenient for you.

Charlotte Chinese tutoring is also beneficial because it can be built in an empowering fashion. Charlotte Chinese tutors can teach you how to set SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, timely) goals, which in turn serve as a roadmap for the work ahead, a way to measure progress, a built-in reminder to celebrate that progress, and a way to motivate yourself to keep moving towards the next milestone. Not only can this make your sessions more effective, but it teaches you skills with applications to endeavors in other academic and professional arenas.

How can I find a Charlotte Chinese tutor near me?

If you're looking for an online solution, online instructors can connect with you via the Live Learning Platform using video chat, a virtual whiteboard, document sharing, and more. If you'd prefer an in-person solution, we can put you in touch with a local instructor, too. If you'd like to add an online class to your preparation efforts, our educational consultants would be happy to provide additional details about our classes. There's no reason to wait any longer. Get in touch with Varsity Tutors today and we can get you set up with an instructor in as little as 24 hours.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Elaine in Charlotte, NC
We reviewed the student's new Chinese vocabulary from class by using a vocabulary app and practicing listening and speaking. I helped him make a vocabulary list of the new words, including: seafood, beef, rice, noodles, "I'm too full," bread, soda, juice, and eggs. We practiced listening to audio recordings. We then identified the type of food, pronounced the new words, matched pictures to the Chinese characters, and typed the new vocab and phrases in Chinese. Next, we reviewed his older vocabulary from class, including: "what do you want to be?," actor, doctor, engineer, chef, spring, summer, autumn, and winter. We also practiced asking and answering questions in Chinese. He remembered nearly all of the vocabulary for the professions. With more practice, he will get better at identifying the foods by listening and reading.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Hua in Charlotte, NC
I gave the students each a surprise dictation test about vocabulary that we have covered so far. I corrected the ones they didn't do correctly. We went through about a quarter of a new set of flashcards. We then learned all related vocabulary and usage. I encouraged them to use Chinese as much as possible during class. I also corrected their homework sheets on writing characters writing I gave them last week. I pointed out the ones that are easy to confuse with other characters that look very similar. Lastly, I gave them homework sheets about character writing.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Seth in Charlotte, NC
This session, the students started having a short conversation (hello, how are you, what is your name), continued learning four different songs (liang zhi lao hu, do re mi fa, twinkle, and ni hao), played games with body parts, and played simon says. They are beginning to hear tones and differentiate. Learning songs is very effective as it increases retention.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Jessica in Charlotte, NC
We continued to practice the student's vocabulary words, where he showed great improvement from just two days ago. He remembered almost all of them in the beginning of our session and then had 100% accuracy at the end of the hour and a half. We also did a dictation, and he did a great job with that as well. I think that he will do very well tomorrow. Best of luck!

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Shareen in Charlotte, NC
We mostly focused on practicing the pronunciation of words and sentences that we had already learned. We repeated sentences and words, and I asked the student to translate and put sentences together. We are making good progress!

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Yichao in Charlotte, NC
I talked with the student in Chinese maybe 99% of the whole time. She did not know all the words in a sentence. Then I tried to use body language to help her understand. We were reviewing colors in Chinese. I randomly said a color and she drew with a color pen. When she was done, I told her whether it was right or not. She did not take the initiative to speak Chinese and her listening was great. I think that in the future I will encourage her to speak more.
