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.

Hello I work in Emerald, I’m hoping to find a English tutor for my Chinese girlfriend (she lives in Box Hill) and a Chinese tutor for myself. We could come to you or we could find a nearby location. What are your thoughts? Can you tell me about your teaching style? Costs etc? Thanks in advance.

I'm looking for someone with experience to teach me Mandarin (both spoken and written) and maybe Cantonese as well. Preferably someone who's an actual tutor or with a degree in education. This is private 1-on-1 I'm a veterinary student so if you know medical jargons (in Chinese) that would be helpful! I'm also looking for someone who is very flexible with time and can come by once a week or more depending on how I progress... I am a total beginner so this should be a walk in the park for you and such easy money too! I'm in Noble Park. I don't mind travelling but not too far. Feel free to ask me questions if you have any. I would like to call you to discuss my terms further before deciding on an assignee... shoot me your offer per hour.

Hi, Looking to learn Chinese (mandarin), especially my speaking skills. 1 hour session (perhaps ongoing) where I would like you to come up with the topics of conversation and teach me as I just try to speak about those things. Open to doing further reading and writing skills if a good course can be made for me. I have very basic speaking skills at the moment.
