Where can I find a good one-on-one Mandarin tutor in San Francisco?
I suggest you can try online learning. More and more websites use Skype to offer one-on-one tuition at a time and place that is convenient to you. All the tutors are native Chinese speakers with a wealth of experience so they can really help you to focus on your pronunciation and grammar as well as offering you a deeper understanding of the language. I wrote it in 9 Tips to Help You Choose Chinese Lessons by Skype.
Another suggestion would be to install Momo on your iPhone and write “I need a good one-on-one Mandarin tutor” on your tagline. You could even go into more detail about your exact requirements if you wish. This is a tried and tested method of finding a Chinese-speaking guy locally. This is often what foreign students and Chinese students do too.
It is easy to pick a Chinese tutor if you want to learn Chinese online. There are many websites that provide tutoring services over skype. I am having this type of lessons with Linda from iChineseLearning.com. If you are considering this way of learning, I highly recommend this to you.
I agree with BenjaminGibbs, you should try the online Chinese learning. A good Mandarin tutor should be native and have obtained the teaching certificate, and it’s unlikely to find such tutor in San Francisco.
Most Chinese school offers online teaching services online, I highly recommend Hanbridge Mandarin school. Unlike other school use Skeype to take lesson, Hanbridge Mandarin use the advanced technology- Virtual Classroom. Visit their official website to learn more if you’re interested.
