Chicago Mandarin Chinese Tutoring FAQ

Varsity Tutors can match you or your student up with superb Chicago Chinese tutoring. A Chicago Chinese tutor can help people of all skill levels and ages. Individualized lessons can assist you in pursuing your objectives, whether you're just starting your language-learning journey or you've been speaking Chinese for quite some time.

How can a Chicago Chinese tutor near me aid me in improving my fluency?

Chinese is a language made up of dialects like Mandarin and Cantonese. Because it contains thousands of characters and little similarity with the English language, it's considered one of the toughest languages for a native English speaker to learn. Perhaps you have a student who wants to learn it to impress a pen pal. Maybe you're studying it because you're planning to stay in a Chinese-speaking country for a few years. Perhaps you just want to build on your existing language skills. Chicago Chinese tutors can assist you regardless of your goals.

There are many perks to private instruction. In a typical classroom, a teacher instructs several students at the same time in the best way possible. This makes it difficult for you to get your needs addressed because you're competing with other students. What's great about Chicago Chinese tutoring is that each session only involves you and an educator, making it easy for you to receive an individualized learning experience. You're also free to ask an instructor any questions on your mind.

Chicago Chinese tutors can direct lessons using a variety of methods. Since the Chinese language is a tonal one, your instructor can try to help your auditory student better comprehend certain dialects. If your student is a visual learner, their instructor can use flashcards marked with Chinese symbols to attempt to help them understand written Chinese.

In order to retain fluency of the Chinese language, it's crucial for you to consistently practice it, and a Chicago Chinese tutor can help you do this by immersing you in it. Language immersion is a great way to improve your Chinese pronunciation and help you feel more comfortable speaking the language.

Participating in Chicago Chinese tutoring can help your student discover and fill in knowledge gaps so they possess a strong foundation. Suppose your high school student is having trouble with a concept in their current class because they struggled with it last year. Their academic mentor can try to clear things up so that studying becomes a smoother process.

One-on-one sessions can move at a pace that's right for you. For example, if you have trouble comprehending Pinyin, your educator can spend as much time as you need on it until things click. On the other hand, if you're hungry for more than what's covered in class, your private teacher can introduce you to new material.

An educator can offer help with homework assignments. For instance, if your student has to write a paper about Chinese history and they don't know where to begin, their mentor can try to jog some ideas by using an outline to get them started. Additionally, an instructor can help your student work through questions as they come up in assignments. Suppose your student has to read a Chinese article and notices that some of the characters resemble writing found in the Japanese language. This can prompt a discussion about kanji and other similarities between written Japanese and Chinese.

Private tutoring doesn't only need to occur during the school term. As a matter of fact, reviewing Chinese during summer vacation or another school break not only strengthens your fluency, it also helps you keep your academic skills sharp in general.

How can I fit Chicago Chinese tutoring into my schedule?

What's wonderful about one-on-one sessions is that they offer a flexible schedule. We take your student's academic needs and family's schedule into account first and then we look for someone who's available at the same time as your student. This enables your student to focus on their studies while still tending to their other obligations.

You can get together with a Chicago Chinese tutor online or in person. Online lessons occur via the Live Learning Platform, a digital classroom that lets you communicate face-to-face with your mentor using learning tools like a virtual whiteboard and video chat. In addition, it includes a document editor that enables you and your instructor to work together to review essential vocabulary, pronouns, and other components of the Chinese language. You can also watch recordings of previous sessions outside of meetings to go over concepts like common phrases, sentence structure, and differentiating verbs. Virtual instruction enables you to take part in lessons without commuting anywhere.

If you want to meet with an educator in person, we can find someone in your city area to lend you a hand. You can even choose where lessons take place. You can meet with your instructor at your favorite hangout, the Chicago Public Library's main branch, or at home.

Varsity Tutors also provides virtual courses if you enjoy learning in a classroom atmosphere. They feature live sessions where you interact with a teacher and other students studying the Chinese language. New sections begin on a monthly basis, so you or your student can choose one that complements your schedule.

How do I get started with a Chicago Chinese tutor near me?

You or your student can reach out to an educational consultant to start learning from someone who's fluent in Chinese and honors your schedule. You just have to tell us where and when you want to meet up with an academic mentor, and we'll do our best to link you with someone who can accommodate your lifestyle.

Because we have been working together for about a month, this session was spent reviewing the previous material to help the student remember and recall how to use certain grammar points and vocabulary words. We also introduced a lesson on how to introduce family as well as clarify concepts more in depth.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Hua in Chicago, IL
We went through the whole book (12 lessons) briefly first, and put more emphasis on the last 6 lessons. The client said we needed to put emphasis on the last 6 lessons to prepare for the final. We went through the final review given by her teacher. Since the final exam (which is coming soon) will have oral and written parts, we practiced oral conversations using the contents in the final review. I corrected all the character writing errors she made in the sheets. I asked her to practice writing the characters and sentences during the week before our next session.
