How to select a good Chinese teacher in Shanghai?
Different Chinese teacher will charge you various prices, and every Chinese teacher may claim he/she is a good one. The most commonly problems are what the reasonable price for mandarin tutoring is and how to select a good teacher with reasonable price?
Compared with teaching quality, price seems insignificant. If you are lucky enough to find a responsible Chinese teacher with rich experience, 150rmb/h is worthwhile..On the contrary, if you are taught by a less experienced teacher, even 50rmb/h is wasteful.
No matter you are a beginner or an intermediate learner, a good Chinese teacher matters a lot and could guide you in a most effective route. Just imagine travelling to a new city, tourists accompanied by good tourist guides will finish the trip quickly and visit every desirable place while tourists with poor guides or no guide might just turn around and around at the same place. Eventually, those who have no good guides will find the trip meaningless and wasteful. The toughest problem might be how to find a good Chinese teacher as every tutor may claim that he/she is professional and experienced. Try to request for a one-hour demo lesson and make a comparison, keeping it in your heart that experienced tutors may have systematic teaching methods and may arouse your study interests in the shortest time. Just ask your own feelings what kind of teachers are good ones and suitable for you after demo lesson.
