How can Mandarin Chinese tutoring help you?

Chinese is a very useful language, as it is spoken by about one-fifth of the world's inhabitants. Whether you're learning for an upcoming trip or just because you're interested in learning multiple languages, Mandarin Chinese is a language that anyone can enjoy. While it is fairly easy in terms of grammar, it can still be a challenge for students. If you want to become fluent in Chinese, then it is a good idea to practice speaking the language with a personal tutor. Varsity Tutors' educational directors can help you locate Mandarin Chinese tutoring in Washington, D.C.

Mandarin Chinese, like all forms of Chinese, does not use the Latin alphabet. The language is also not phonetic, or read the same way it is written. Instead, Chinese uses characters to represent individual words. This can be a difficult form of writing and reading to learn because it relies on you to have memorized and remembered every character. There are roughly 2000 common characters that you'll have to learn in order to read a common Chinese newspaper. Learning all of these characters can seem overwhelming, but when you work with a Mandarin Chinese tutor in Washington, D.C., the lessons can be broken up into smaller chunks. Your tutor can also create a study plan that can teach you Mandarin Chinese characters in a method and order that works with the rest of your learning. If this means grouping characters by subject, then your tutor can create vocabulary lists that use visuals and pronunciations so that you're getting a complete lesson on each word. No matter how you learn best, your tutor can help you by using materials that cater to your learning needs.

Session Summaries by Mandarin Chinese Tutors

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Emily in Washington DC
Today we were reviewing the student's class material for his quiz tomorrow. He was covering greetings and introductions. We were able to clarify some of his questions in regards to grammar, and I was also able to introduce some new material that was relevant to the topic. Toward the end of the session, I gave him a review of what we covered. Based off of that, he should be ready for his quiz.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Kathleen in Washington DC
The student was very focused today. We were able to accomplish a lot during the session and he was an active participant in his learning. First, he completed his homework through page 96. He did this independently, for the most part, with some guidance from me on understanding written Chinese sentences. Next, we spent a few minutes on his dictation words for next week. He wrote them very well, so he'll study them on his own. We spent most of the time working on the story that he needs to write for school. He came up with a plot line and I prompted him to expand the plot. Using a dictionary when he needed to, he then wrote the story in Chinese, and illustrated it.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Jane in Washington DC
This is the last session before the final exam, so we tried to review everything the student learned this semester. We went over all the quizzes and tests she had. I pointed out the important grammar section she needs to review and explained to her the parts she didn't quite understand.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Scott in Washington DC
This session we focused on reviewing previous material. I gave the student a quiz on all the vocabulary we had learned. He did well but there were a couple characters he had forgotten. We also reviewed some grammar points, and I gave him homework from his workbook.

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring review by Hua in Washington DC
We reviewed new words from lesson 14, then studied the related text section. We went through some grammar points, especially preposition use and I answered the client's questions. I also I provided related vocabulary and phrases, as well as words that are easy to confuse. We made sentences and went over a lot of exercises. Then, he learned new words from lesson 15 and got through half of the language notes.
