Private In-Home and Online Mandarin Chinese Tutoring

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.

Give Varsity Tutors a call if you want to be connected with an excellent Portland Chinese tutor. Portland Chinese tutoring can be useful for Chinese language learners of all ages and skill levels. Maybe you're just starting to learn Chinese after you've retired, or you have an elementary student just beginning to learn Chinese. Maybe you're nearly fluent and need someone to continue to learn more advanced Chinese language skills from. As you work towards your Chinese speaking goals, getting help from a private instructor is a wise choice.

How can a Portland Chinese tutor near me help me as I strive to become fluent?

Chinese is considered one of the most difficult languages for native English speakers to learn. Whether you're learning Chinese for professional, academic, or personal reasons, fluent Portland Chinese tutors can guide you in several ways. Maybe you work for a worldwide company and you'll be visiting your colleagues in China, Taiwan, or Hong Kong, and you need to communicate with them in their language. Maybe your student is starting classes at a Chinese language immersion school and you want to provide them with every opportunity you can to pick up the language swiftly. Perhaps your family will soon visit a Chinese-speaking country to meet relatives who don't speak English. Your instructor can help you learn grammar, vocabulary, and helpful phrases for any purpose.

There are patient Portland Chinese tutors to help you study regardless of what your goal is. You can meet individually with them either online or in person and they can create a personalized learning plan based on your specific needs. As you study together, they can give you learning materials targeted towards you based on your preferred learning style, goals, interests, and strengths. If you would rather learn visually and you need practice writing Chinese characters, they can find or create worksheets you can use as a guide. If you need to practice your pronunciation of the four tones, your private instructor can provide you with video clips from movies or TV shows dubbed in Chinese so you can listen to how familiar words sound when spoken in Chinese and make essential connections.

One-on-one Chinese tutoring can be particularly helpful when it comes to pronunciation and learning the four Chinese tones. With help from a fluent speaker, you can be sure to get your pronunciation correct from the beginning. It's far easier to learn pronunciation correctly the first time than it is to have to relearn it correctly. Your instructor can help you by demonstrating the pronunciation of Chinese words and tones, or they can show you charts that demonstrate proper tongue placement and lip movement to make the many Chinese language sounds that are different from English.

Learning a language takes continual practice and use. Private Portland Chinese tutoring gives you the opportunity to spend as much time as you want having conversations in Chinese with your instructor. If you're an advanced student, your instructor can use immersion, where parts of the lesson or the entire lesson is in Chinese. Even if you've only had a day or two of lessons, though, you can begin using simple Chinese conversations with your Chinese teacher.

These conversations can revolve around topics of particular interest to you. If you work in the fashion business, your instructor can focus on the words and phrases you're most likely to need to use and understand. If you're going to meet Chinese-speaking family members, you can study the language from that perspective. You or your student can request as much personalization of your Chinese lessons as you need so you can learn the language efficiently and effectively.

How can I fit Portland Chinese tutoring into my busy schedule?

Private Chinese tutors allow for a great deal of flexibility. Our educational consultants can use information about your schedule when you sign up for private lessons. We'll work to find a fluent Chinese instructor who meets your language learning and scheduling needs. You can benefit from this kind of consideration whether you're pursuing your Chinese skills online or in person.

When you take online lessons, you have the benefit of utilizing our powerful Live Learning Platform. You can interact with your Portland Chinese tutor the same way you would if you were sitting in the room together. Other useful features on the platform make studying together easier. For example, you can work together in the document editor to read simplified Chinese characters, practice vocabulary, or firm up grammar skills. Your online sessions are recorded, so you can review any of your lessons at any time. It's like you have your own library of Chinese video tutorials at the same time as you receive the advantages that come with personal instruction. These are just a few of the features that make learning Chinese without leaving your home a reasonable option.

Varsity Tutors also provides live, online Chinese classes that use the same platform. Students meet with a professional instructor along with classmates who are working hard to learn Chinese. Classes are available in two- and four-week sessions, so you can meet more often or spread your lessons out over a longer period of time.

If you or your student would like to have your Chinese lessons in person, you can meet with your instructor at a convenient location like a local coffee shop, the common room at your college, or your favorite branch of the Multnomah County Library. You can expect the same high-quality Chinese education whether you meet with your Portland Chinese tutor online or in person.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Emily in Portland, OR
Today's session went well. I gave the student a short exam to for him to get a sense of what he needs to review before the new school year in two weeks. We also worked out how our sessions are going to run once classes start. He is determined to start off strong, and we will be using the remainder of the summer to work towards that

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Wan Wen (Jovana) in Portland, OR
We did a role play in the same Mandarin dialogue that we did last session. We rotated our roles in the dialogue and I let her recite as much as possible for the given "script" in Mandarin. By the end of the session she was able to recite pretty much the whole dialogue on her own.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Kathleen in Portland, OR
The student completed his weekly homework and studied for his dictation test tomorrow. The characters were difficult for him but he learned them quickly and wrote them well. I assigned him sentences to translate and write as a way of studying further.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Brittany in Portland, OR
We focused on speaking and grammar covering 2-3 new sentence structures. After learning the logical progression of the sentence structure, we then proceeded to come up with examples; first in English then translated into Chinese. We learned new vocabulary, characters, and expressions.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Hongyuan (Emily) in Portland, OR
We went over a newspaper article the student found in Chinese and studied the article together. I focused more on introducing new phrases, pronunciations, and sentence comprehension. He has a good foundation of Chinese grammar.
