Cincinnati Mandarin Chinese Tutoring FAQ

If you are searching for a Cincinnati Chinese tutor, Varsity Tutors can connect you with an option for yourself or your student. Maybe you're in college at the University of Cincinnati or Xavier University. Perhaps your student just started studying the language at a high school close by. It might be that you're a busy professional hoping to better communicate with international partners. Maybe you're preparing to take a trip to China. There are a number of reasons to want to improve your Chinese language skills, but whatever yours is, learning from Cincinnati Chinese tutors can be helpful.

What is the upside of working with a Cincinnati Chinese tutor near me?

There are many advantages associated with studying with Cincinnati Chinese tutors. One such advantage is that you get insights from someone who knows the language well. Learning how to read and write Chinese is not like learning a Romance language or even something like Greek or Swahili. This isn't about learning new grammar or vocabulary. It's not a new alphabet. In fact, Chinese doesn't even have an alphabet. It's the only modern pictograph language in existence, with more than 50,000 symbols that represent syllables, and though only 20,000 of those symbols are actually used, an overwhelming amount of written Chinese uses a mere 2,500 symbols. That, unfortunately, doesn't make written proficiency in this complex language any simpler.

In learning with a Cincinnati Chinese tutor, you get the opportunity to be guided by someone who understands all of these nuances well. They can start by teaching you the basics and then build out lessons that prioritize what you need to know to get by before moving on to more complex ideas. If you end up stumped, they can answer your questions and attempt to reframe information for clarity. This sort of individualized attention is valuable and can be rare in a classroom setting where teachers may not have time to sit with each student to build full comprehension.

This one-on-one attention becomes even more crucial when it comes time to focus on speaking the language. Learning verbalization is arguably the hardest part of learning any new language, but it is especially difficult with Chinese. It's known as a tonal language, which means the definition of a word changes depending on how it's said aloud. Mandarin is one of the most common dialects and features four distinct tones: rising, flat, falling then rising, and falling. There are six other primary Chinese dialects, and they can feature nine different tones. Changes in tone can change the meaning of a word, phrase, or sentence entirely. Unlike most modern languages, written Chinese implies nothing about how a word is to be pronounced. Pronunciation must be taught, making instruction indispensable.

In this sense, Cincinnati Chinese tutors can be an essential tool in the language learning process. You need one-on-one attention to make sure you're getting the tone correct if you want to understand and be understood when engaging in Chinese conversation. Luckily, Cincinnati Chinese tutoring can help you get to that point. Online options, in particular, are useful here. Your instructor can use the video chat function on the Live Learning Platform to hold conversations in Chinese with you, correcting any missteps along the way so they don't turn into bad habits and helping you get used to translating Chinese when it's spoken in a conversational cadence. All sessions can be recorded, so you can review them whenever you like at a later time. Your Cincinnati Chinese tutor can send you additional links and files like podcasts and videos so you can expose yourself to other dialects, too, providing extra practice. This sort of education can be invaluable for students getting ready for higher-level courses where instruction is provided almost entirely in Chinese.

Cincinnati Chinese tutoring is beneficial because it allows for convenient, flexible, dedicated studying time. For adult learners with packed schedules, getting to a specific place at a specific time might not be the easiest thing in the world. Cincinnati Chinese tutoring addresses this challenge by providing options. We do the work to find someone who can meet when you can, and you can work from where you like as well. Perhaps that means you meet your instructor at home. Maybe that means you plug in your headphones in a dark corner of the Mercantile Library and work online. It doesn't matter where you are as long as it enables you to comfortably focus on the work at hand. And because features like the session recordings and document sharing are available whenever you want, online instruction allows you to study outside your scheduled video chats whenever it's convenient.

Another significant benefit of Cincinnati Chinese tutoring is that it can be set up in a way that offers guidance students have a say in. With direction from the student, Cincinnati Chinese tutors can help them set SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and timely) goals, which can then work as a plan for study, a tool for tracking progress, pre-established points of celebration, a reminder of how much they've accomplished should they begin to doubt themselves, and encouragement to keep going every time they hit a milestone. This is a tactic that can carry over to tasks at work and school, too.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Kathleen in Cincinnati, OH
The student studied for his dictation test by practicing writing characters with the correct stroke order and then writing them from memory by themselves and in sentences. Then he practiced asking and answering questions using the words that will be on his test. Finally, he completed the workbook pages that were his homework. This week, he said he would practice using his flashcards to review previously learned vocabulary.

Today's session went really well. We started off with a quiz covering material from our previous session. We later continued onto new material, writing a short paragraph introducing family.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Scott in Cincinnati, OH
We began by going over the dialogue of the first lesson in the textbook we're using, Integrated Chinese Level 1 Part 2. We then went over the grammar points and did a couple exercises to practice them. After that we conversed in Chinese for a while and then played the game "20 Questions" in Chinese.
