  • For Adults

Private tutoring through China Institute offers a flexible and personalized alternative to group classes! Give your child the opportunity to learn Chinese one-on-one, at your preferred time, and according to your child’s individual needs. Our experienced teachers will design a custom-made syllabus addressing your child’s specific learning style and objectives. With a user-friendly online platform, our program provides students with an engaging and effective language learning experience. We also offer personally tailored Mandarin Chinese SAT II & AP Test Prep lessons from exceptional instructors in one-on-one or small group settings!

In response to COVID-19, China Institute now offers digital learning options for children and teens via ZOOM. Lessons and 1-on-1 options include 1-hour sessions on:

  • Chinese language
  • AP Chinese
  • SAT II

Half-hour tutoring now available for toddlers (with a minimal package of 5 hours)

New Language Students: If you are uncertain of your child’s Chinese level, we would be happy to schedule a free assessment to determine the best tutor and how to develop the best custom curriculum.

Please contact our Children and Youth Programs Coordinator Zeyu Feng at [email protected] to schedule your child’s assessment today or learn more about signing up for tutoring packages for children.

Please note that we have a 24 hours cancellation policy for all private tutoring sessions (online and in-person). Should you need to reschedule or cancel a tutoring lesson, we ask that you inform us at least 24 hours in advance, so our teachers can allocate their time accordingly. Failure to comply with our policy will result in a cancellation fee of $20-$45, depending on the length of the session.

“Our six-year-old daughter has blossomed during her Mandarin Studies at the China Institute. In a matter of a handful of weeks, she has quickly adjusted to the style of her teachers, from summer intensive to weekly private instruction. She looks forward to every class and enjoys bringing her learning back in our daily life with curiosity and genuine desire to communicate with Mandarin and non-Mandarin speakers about her experience. Impressive teachers and impeccable educational curriculum!”
