If you or a student in your family needs help growing your knowledge of the Chinese language, Varsity Tutors can connect you with a Sacramento Chinese tutor. You can build on the foundational concepts you're learning in class or strengthen your speaking skills while working toward fluency. Whether you are just starting to learn the language or have an advanced understanding and simply want to fill gaps in your knowledge, Sacramento Chinese tutoring can help you pursue your goals.

How can I benefit from the assistance of a Sacramento Chinese tutor near me?

Chinese is known as a challenging language to learn as a native English speaker because the two languages have so few similarities. One major difference is that English uses an -s at the end of a noun to make it plural. Chinese has only one grammatical form and does not change its nouns whether they are singular or plural. This and other distinctions between the languages can make Chinese tough to learn for English speakers. Fortunately, working with Sacramento Chinese tutors can enhance your journey toward fluency. By studying with a personal instructor, you can feel more confident in your ability to excel in class or even in an international workplace.

Sacramento Chinese tutoring is conducted in a one-on-one environment between you and your teacher. Having your instructor's undivided attention makes it easy for you to receive instant answers to any questions that arise. Your academic mentor can also identify your learning style and combine it with your educational goals to develop a lesson plan tailored just for you. Using the lesson plan, your educator can go over your areas of strength and make plenty of time for you to focus on concepts you haven't fully mastered. If you need to slow your pace or feel ready to jump ahead to new concepts, your mentor can make modifications to the plan.

During your tutoring sessions, your educator could go over basic Chinese concepts or expand to more advanced concepts based on your current skill level. For instance, your teacher could discuss the four tones in Mandarin Chinese: flat, rising, falling then rising, and falling. Or your academic mentor can explore the characters used to create syllables when communicating in Chinese. While there are more than 20,000 characters currently in use, most of the written language uses about 2,500 characters. If you or your student could benefit from going over more advanced concepts, your instructor can refresh your knowledge of different types of verbs that sound alike. Your mentor could also help you get reacquainted with different characters that are used for pronouns based on gender.

Sacramento Chinese tutors can use several instructional methodologies to help you grow as a Chinese language learner. If you are a physical learner, for instance, your educator could utilize tangible objects to help you remember the meanings of essential vocabulary words. Let's say you are an aural learner. In this case, your teacher could help you absorb information about Chinese history and traditions or go over common Chinese phrases by giving you short lectures. Since you have plenty of personal time, your mentor can try different methodologies until one sticks.

A system that is common for native English speakers to use when learning to speak Chinese is Pinyin. This system is used to translate Chinese characters into English alphabet letters based on their pronunciation. During your sessions, your educator can help you become a better speaker using this system. Your tutor could also use simulated immersion, which is a technique that helps you pick up on small aspects of Chinese grammar so it feels more natural for you. Using this technique can help you gain more progress in your studies and feel more confident when communicating with Chinese speakers.

How can I fit Sacramento Chinese tutoring into my schedule?

What's great about studying with Sacramento Chinese tutors is you don't have to worry about time or scheduling conflicts. We do the work to locate an educator who has the availability and skill level to meet the unique academic and scheduling needs of you or your student. With tutoring being so flexible, your only concern is becoming a stronger Chinese language student.

Another fantastic perk of studying with a Sacramento Chinese tutor is the ability to choose online or in-person interactions. If online tutoring is your preference, you can use the Live Learning Platform to communicate with your personal instructor via live video chat and learn everything from grammar to sentence structure. Sessions are recorded in this platform, allowing you to go back and check how a certain word was pronounced. If you're not sure how to write a specific Chinese character, your educator can get you up to speed using the virtual whiteboard.

Some students prefer to work with their instructors in-person. If this is your preference, we can find a teacher who is able to meet with you or your student at any location you choose. You can enjoy learning in a quiet and comfortable environment like your home or the Central Branch of the Sacramento Public Library.

If you're not aware, Varsity Tutors provides online Chinese courses that allow you to learn from an expert educator in a virtual classroom. By enrolling in a course, you have the opportunity to interact with and gain support from other students learning the language. If you're worried that a busy schedule could impact your ability to enroll, multiple course sections are available giving you plenty of options to choose from.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Emily in Sacramento, CA
The student received his textbooks yesterday, so we were able to get a head start on preparing him for his first class. We will be focusing heavily on building his vocabulary from first year Mandarin as well as whatever is being instructed in class.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Wan Wen (Jovana) in Sacramento, CA
I helped the student with her weekly Mandarin dialogue. I corrected some of her pronunciation in this dialogue, let her be aware of the words that she needs to work on. I translated the dialogue for her so that she knows what the dialogue is about. There were a few words in the dialogue that were difficult for her level, so I advised her to keep practicing at her own her time. At the end of the session, we did a role play for the dialogue and she was able to read through the dialogue without any problems.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Kathleen in Sacramento, CA
The student arrived to the session prepared with what she wanted to work on and had emailed me pictures of her notes in advance. We worked on formulated sentences with correct word order and she did really well making sentences with multiple "adjunct phrases" (prepositional phrases, such as "to the library", time phrases, such as "at 1:00 p.m."). We also practiced speaking Chinese more fluidly and producing certain difficult sounds.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Xi in Sacramento, CA
Today's topic is Chinese Kung fu. We went through the vocabulary and the text together. Today's new vocabulary is big and the text contains more formal sentence structures than before, but with some explanation, the student was able to understand them. We also learned about the story of Monkey King and the Tang Monk.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Michelle in Sacramento, CA
The student and I reviewed the basics of Chinese. We went over how to introduce oneself and how to talk about family. Furthermore, we covered basic grammatical concepts, such as the structure of questions. For him to do well, he needs to make flashcards and constantly be reviewing them. He also should be practicing every day how to write every character with the proper stroke order.
