Chinese Conversation Partner/Tutor
I am offering services as a Mandarin Chinese conversation practice partner, tutoring, as well as basic reading/homework help, for beginning to intermediate students of Mandarin Chinese.
I have a good knack for helping Chinese language learners to learn conversational skills and colloquial word use. My style is to allow the context and topics of conversation to produce teachable moments, although if there are particular goals in mind, or you'd like homework help for your Chinese classes, we can certainly use more structured tutoring. (You bring your own materials, although I can provide Chinese children's books to practice reading together if developing reading skills is desired)
I can help with pronunciation, sentence structure, conversational and cultural etiquette, and general communication skills in this area.
Training & Qualifications
Born and raised in Taiwan, lived there until 9 years of age. Previously a classroom teaching assistant for Chinese School for 7 years. Some experience in language tutoring and simple translation work.
Availability & Preferences
Varies, please contact me to talk about scheduling. I am available for a virtual chat if you are far away geographically.
I would be happy to set up a recurring meeting time to help develop your Mandarin competence, if it seems agreeable to both of us!
