Chinese tutoring services will usually cover tones, vocabulary, grammar, and useful phrases. Ideally, you’ll learn how to read and listen to Chinese and how to write and speak the language. Moreover, your lessons’ coverage will vary depending on your personal needs, including the time per session, how advanced you are, or if the student is a toddler or child.
In general, though, here’s what you can expect when you book Chinese language lessons through Airtasker:
Beginners need to learn about tones, especially since this is a language feature that isn’t present in European languages (including English). Depending on the Chinese dialect you wish to learn, you may have to master 4-9 tones.
Your Tasker shows you how to introduce yourself in Chinese, as well as how to greet others. By extension, you may learn things like numbers, ages, occupations, titles, the members of the family, and more.
Next, your Tasker may show you how to say or write useful phrases. These may be as common as “Where is the bus station?”, “How much?”, and “Where is the ladies’ room?” or as specific as what you’ll need to learn when doing business with Chinese speakers or vacationing in Hong Kong. Keep in mind that you can have your tutor tailor this to your motivations for learning the language.
Since you’ve already been introduced to a number of Chinese words and phrases, you’ll proceed to the rules of the language. This includes using the characters (which represent syllables) to form words, phrases, and sentences. You’ll learn how to phrase questions, negative statements, and more.
Once you’ve gotten a grasp of the basics, your Tasker may drill you by having you read and write in Chinese, listen to Chinese conversations, watch Chinese videos, and converse using the language. You may also be asked to translate materials from Chinese to English and vice versa. The goal is to build your fluency in the language and familiarise yourself with just about any Chinese phrase you may encounter.
Advanced Chinese lessons usually cover more words and phrases. You can expect more complex exercises and more frequent conversations with your tutor (or with others, as instructed by your tutor). Some may also consider advanced Chinese lessons if they have already learned Mandarin and now want to master Cantonese.

Preferably by someone with a basic understanding of finance / investing / home loans. You don't need a strong understanding of these topics, but I use a lot of financial terms in my articles that I will need you to know the Chinese equivalent of. This must be in traditional Chinese, not simplified.
Jasmine was not the cheapest, but I chose her because of her feedback, her qualifications as a professional translator, and because she was brave enough not to compete on price - she provided a quote that she thought would justify the sort of quality that I needed. Translation isn't just translation, otherwise we could all use Google Translate. There is a certain level of care that is needed to properly convey MEANING, which I got from her. A few things to note: 1) As mentioned, she didn't just do a straight translation - she actually got to understand the content and context to make sure the translation was on point. She even corrected me on a few things which I was impressed by. 2) She included each translated paragraph right after the original, which I thought was a nice touch. 3) She got it done well ahead of schedule. Highly recommended.

Need a Chinese tutor that will come to my house once a week for 2 hours. My 13 daughter learnt it once before but didn't like it, now she wants to try again. This will be weekly not just once.
