Chinese Conversation Partner/Tutor


35 per hour - Virtual OK

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!

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Chris Hambelton

My main interests revolve around holistic health, healing, and sustainable living. I really enjoy trying out new body based therapies to help my own healing process, and to further understand how the ...human system responds to various kinds of input; both traumatic and healing. Currently I spend much of my free time practicing meditation, tai chi, various forms of energy practices, and doing holistic health research/lifestyle practice. Particularly I am interested in cultivating more skill in preparing foods in a traditional manner to make my diet more healing and nourishing. show more
