How can a Mandarin Chinese tutor help you?

Learning to speak Mandarin Chinese can open many doors to you, as nearly one-fifth of the world's population speaks some form of Chinese. The language can be difficult for students, as it does not use the Latin alphabet or use phonetically spelled out words. Learning Chinese consists of learning to speak the language and memorizing the nearly 2000 common written characters. Varsity Tutors can help you find a Houston, Texas, Mandarin Chinese tutor who can work with you individually on learning Chinese.

One of the first parts of learning Chinese is mastering the tones that the language uses. Chinese learners utilize pinyin, the Latin phonetic spellings of Chinese words, but it can be difficult to interpret the tones simply by reading them. When you work with a personal Mandarin Chinese tutor in Houston, you can hear how each word is meant to be spoken and coached on how to shape the word yourself. There are several instances within Chinese where two words are phonetically spelled the same but are pronounced with different tones to mean a different word entirely. Having a tutor to guide you through such instances could be beneficial to the learning process. Memorizing the characters of the language could be a very monotonous task, but your tutor can teach you methods and tricks to remembering certain characters that they have learned through their own use of the language.

Session Summaries by Mandarin Chinese Tutors

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Emily in Houston, TX
Today we worked on translations of a TV drama. Since the dialogue was slower, the student was able to concentrate and pick up on certain phrases a lot easier. Afterward, we started to go over pinyin spellings and tone markings. At first it was a little difficult, but I believe that with practice, it will become easier for him over time.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Kathleen in Houston, TX
The student studied for his dictation test and completed his homework. We discussed strategies for determining the correct measure words to use when counting objects in Chinese and I showed him an online dictionary that also provides stroke order animations and information about measure words. He worked on remembering the words for yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Benjamin in Houston, TX
The student was tested on his recognition of Chinese characters today and knew about 50% which was a great improvement. We finished his study guide and will start reviewing the chapters 1-22 again. He needs to get about 30 characters down solid. He is working with flashcards on this.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Fengxiang in Houston, TX
We worked on pronunciation especially the forth tone. I taught the student how to call relatives in Chinese. For example mom's parents and siblings. We also practiced naming body parts, square and cube in Chinese. The student created a animal and he was able to tell a story about this animal 80% in Chinese.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Hana in Houston, TX
Reviewed the first 2 chapters in the workbook, mostly self introduction languages. Went over a new chapter and reviewed some vocabulary relating to "friends". The student did a good job reviewing by herself when we didn't meet..
