How can Mandarin Chinese tutoring help you?

Learning Mandarin Chinese, a language spoken by nearly one-fifth of the world, can be a great opportunity to learn about a new culture and understand a huge a segment of the population. Like any foreign language, it introduces a lot of new concepts to beginning students. It can be challenging for students to learn to speak and read the language, as both of these skills use foreign grammar structures and pronunciations. For help learning the language, you should consider working with a personal tutor. The educational directors at Varsity Tutors can help you locate a Mandarin Chinese tutor in St. Louis, Missouri, who can work with you on your coursework.

Mandarin Chinese uses a fairly simple grammatical structure, so students generally have little issue with ordering words properly. However, pronouncing those words is another matter. Chinese uses tonals, which give each English vowel four to five different pronunciations. The tones can significantly change the meaning of words, so it is important that students get these correct. Learning to properly pronounce these on your own can be a challenge, because some of the differences are very subtle. A personal St. Louis Mandarin Chinese tutor can work with you on improving your pronunciations. When you work one-on-one with a knowledgeable tutor, they can listen to you speak and determine the areas that need the most work. Based on your skill level, they can create a custom curriculum that is tailored to helping you improve. They may bring videos, learning worksheets, or even just a list of topics to discuss in Mandarin. No matter the method, your tutor can help you work on your foreign language skills.

Session Summaries by Mandarin Chinese Tutors

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Emily in St. Louis, MO
Today was my first session with the student in a couple months. So, rather than learning new information, I had her take a review test which was two pages front and back. She had to do a "first pass" to see how much she remembered. If she couldn't, then she could refer to her notes. If those two did not help, we went over the questions she missed together so she could complete the review. Overall, she was able to remember some, but had to refer to her notes for some. Now that she has it fresh in her mind, we are able to continue where we left off starting our next session.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Wan Wen (Jovana) in St. Louis, MO
We went over the weekly Mandarin dialogue today. We followed our usual drill: conversational reading; She repeated after me and repeated on her own for several rounds, and then we did a role play together. I corrected some of her pronunciation and tones.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Kathleen in St. Louis, MO
The student was very attentive and focused today and he had a great session. He practiced for his dictation test and after he had learned all the characters, he wrote a sentence using all of them. For his homework, he had to translate words and he was very proactive about asking for help and using the glossary.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Jane in St. Louis, MO
We went over the practice sheet from school to prepare her for the coming quiz. I asked her to read the chapter a couple of times to reinforce her pronunciation and tones, because I noticed she very often missed the quiz points from the pinyin and the tones. She can grasp the grammar concepts pretty well.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Chen Chen in St. Louis, MO
The student and I learned a new lesson together. Taught her a few new Chinese characters and tested her pinyin. She was very energetic, and then I taught her a Chinese game along with a Chinese song. Left more homework for her to do.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Xinjie in St. Louis, MO
I reviewed animals with the student today. Then I taught him about food and electronics. I had him tell me what he was interested in learning about and then I would teach him things in that specific category. He catches on really quick, but he likes to uses his notes when I review him. I'm going to start reviewing our old lessons before learning new lessons. Our goal is for him to know all the words and vocab without using the notes.
