Browse these Chinese lessons with great ratings from Thumbtack customers in El Cerrito.
great professional service very responsive and love kids enjoying Spanish lessons
Grace is a patient, fun, and dedicated tutor. My two girls enjoy their lessons with Grace. Grace has made it fun for them to learn. They originally started with after-school Chinese lessons at a learning center. Because of the larger classroom size, my kids were not corrected and only learned to copy really well. Grace has corrected their stroke order and established a strong foundation in their reading and writing. We don't speak Mandarin at home so next she will work on their conversation. I am so glad and fortunate to have found Grace!
Angela is an amazing teacher! She shows how much she cares for your learning in her expressions and interest in your progress. I enjoyed the way she taught by incorporating culture and humor into the lessons. This made learning Chinese more fun than I could have ever imagined. If you are looking for a teacher that can make the language fun and more memorable, look no further! After all the language classes I have taken, Angela's is the only one were I have retained the language. You will truly learn with her guidance.
I highly recommend Lillian. She has been providing once weekly tutoring to my children, and she is wonderful. I appreciate that she pays attention to what engages the child's interest and adjusts her teaching accordingly. (For one child, she does more singing, and for the other child more conversation.). She is patient, encouraging, and interactive on her teaching style. Above all, she makes sure that my children develop and retain an interest in learning Chinese. She is selective in the homework she gives, focusing on a few important things each week. She has good ideas for how to incorporate learning into little moments of the day so it is more natural and less of a chore. I have seen steady improvement in my children's pronunciation and speaking ability, and highly recommend Lillian.
Teacher Wan Wan comes prepared and knows the material to teach my son, and knows how to test him back to see if he absorbs the Chinese lesson well.
A bit of background, I am conversationally fluent in Cantonese, but had always wanted to learn Mandarin and become Chinese-literate. Corinne was the second tutor to respond to me, but the first who could meet with me. My initial apprehension at learning Mandarin from a white girl quickly evaporated upon our first conversation. Corinne is one of the sharpest, emphatic, and amiable people I've had the pleasure of meeting...I highly recommend her to anyone who's looking to learn Mandarin and about Chinese culture.
I met up with Johnny for my first lesson yesterday evening. It went even better than I expected. Here's my assessment. Administrative Style Johnny has been very professional and prompt. Johnny was the first to respond to my request for a quote. There were a total of 3 other quotes, but I value promptness so I went with him. He also continued to communicate quickly to setup what type of lessons I wanted, time, and location. He arrived early for the first lesson. Teaching Style Johnny asks me questions in a very polite way to understand what level of Chinese I am comfortable with. Then he starts the lesson. While observing my reaction to questions and my answers he tries to correct me where he can, but not in a stern or disruptive way. That helps us to continue with the lesson and progress. Towards the end of the lesson, he remembers all the details that I stumbled on and review them. That was a pleasant surprise. It shows how caring he is about what I need to improve on. Personality Johnny seems like a very professional and smart guy. However, he doesn't act arrogant or stern. I'm not sure how old he is, but he seems much more mature and experienced than his bio on Thumbtack might seem at first glance. I think I made a great choice with going with Johnny.
Anna provided me a good base of practical Chinese skills that I used successfully in my business travel and meetings. I'm certainly not anywhere close to fluent, but I can exchange polite greetings and order meals, and that was my goal. My Chinese counterparts appreciated my efforts with their language. I'm also considering having Anna tutor my middle school boy who has recently started Chinese at his school
I’m currently a math teacher in South San Francisco Unified and have been teaching for the past 4 years. My first experience as a tutor was as a freshman in high school, and I haven’t stopped tutoring since then! As a teacher, I’ve been lucky enough to have taught both math and Chinese to K-12 students. Although teaching two different subjects to such a wide age group was at times difficult, this challenge was right up my alley. I specialized in secondary mathematics instruction for my Masters Degree at the USC Rossier School of Education, and Chinese is my native language. As a tutor, I expect my students to work hard and be dedicated. I believe that no subject is too difficult as long enough effort is put in. I only have a few students at a time, and most tend to stick around for quite a while. I’m always sad when they leave for college, but even then, they call me from time to time for help! The beauty of learning 1 on 1 is that the student is able to set the pace of the lessons. As a teacher and a tutor, I have learned to be flexible and creative with my lessons to support my students' learning styles, and I welcome the opportunity to help guide future students' educational journeys as well.
I provide tutoring in math and Chinese to elementary and middle school students. I adapt a teaching approach to individual's learning style.
