Frequently Asked Questions

What's the best way to find a Chinese tutor in my area of Richmond?

If you prefer in-person lessons over online learning, LanguaTalk may not be the best fit for you. Instead, you can search for a tutor on a local service listing website or place an advertisement in your area. However, we do encourage you to try online learning – you have nothing to lose by booking a free trial session. Many students find that the online experience is just as good as in-person learning, with the added benefit of access to higher quality tutors at a lower cost.

What are the differences between learning Chinese with a tutor via video call and learning in person with a Chinese tutor in Richmond?

Some students might be unsure about learning Chinese online because they think it will be very different from in-person learning. However, many students find that the online experience is similar and they often develop strong relationships with their tutor.

Once you start a video call with your selected tutor, you'll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor may also share learning resources with you (such as newspaper articles or YouTube videos) and you'll be able to collaborate in real-time using tools like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.

How much do Richmond Chinese tutors charge per hour?

Our research suggests that the average hourly rate for private Chinese lessons in Richmond is between $25-$35. Since online tutors don't have to travel to you and often live in countries with a lower cost of living, their hourly rate tends to be significantly lower.

Do any of the tutors on LanguaTalk also offer Chinese lessons in Richmond?

Some tutors on LanguaTalk may also provide in-person lessons in Richmond, but most only offer online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. Additionally, most tutors are not located in Richmond because they are living elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a tutor, you should assume that the lesson will be conducted online.

LanguaTalk offers personalized 1-on-1 Chinese lessons with top-rated tutors. Here's how to get started:

1 - Find a tutor that meets your needs by reviewing their videos, reviews, pricing, and availability.

2 - Book a trial lesson. Many tutors offer a free 30-minute trial, while others offer a discounted trial price.

3 - Have personalized lessons with your chosen tutor via video call. Or try a different tutor if desired.

You don't need to provide credit card information to book a free trial session. Please only book a trial if you're seriously considering taking lessons. Tutor prices vary, and you can use the filter to find one that fits your budget. You can pay for individual lessons or purchase a package for a discount (view a tutor's pricing options on their profile).

We're confident you'll enjoy learning on LanguaTalk. Our platform is trusted by students worldwide because of our transparency. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display these ratings on tutor profiles.

99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. This is because we only accept the top 10% of tutor applications, unlike other platforms.

One of the benefits of online lessons is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a tutor, simply check their calendar to ensure that they have times that fit your schedule. Some tutors may have limited availability due to high demand.

Most students take 55-minute lessons. However, some tutors also offer the option of 30-minute lessons. If this option is available, it will be noted on the tutor's profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).

In general, 55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. 30-minute lessons may be suitable if you're taking lessons for your child or if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.

If you're new to LanguaTalk, we'll provide you with a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, tutors offer these for free. If a tutor does not offer a free trial, the trial price will be 30 percent of their full lesson price, allowing you to still try a session at a reduced cost.

Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to determine if the tutor is a good fit for you and get a sense of what online learning is like. The tutor will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so that they can tailor any lessons you choose to take. You'll be encouraged to speak as much as possible in Chinese, but you can also speak in English if needed.

If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the tutor is right for you, you can book a trial with another tutor for 30 percent of their full lesson price.

Lessons are taught one-on-one to ensure that you receive customized instruction. During the lessons, your tutor will use a variety of teaching methods and resources, including language exercises, conversation practice, and cultural notes, to help you reach your learning objectives.

All lessons take place via video call. Your tutor will normally give you a choice of calling tools, all of which are easy to use.
