Q: How do I find a Chinese tutor?

I've been living in Jinan (Shizhong district) for about two weeks now and I find that listening to recordings over and over aren't really helping. I need someone to converse with and make sure I'm getting tones right and just practice conversational Chinese. I hear that many university students are ready and willing but I want to be clear that I just want to pay someone houry for private lessons, NOT a language exchange. I already teach English all day! Could anyone direct me to how to go about finding someone to tutor me in person? Thanks!

Ask one of your female students, I'm sure they'd be happy to oblige. And pay them an acceptable rate and no hanky panky! Females speak better Chinese because they aren't so guttural in speech and tend to get the pronunciation right.

I'm native Cantonese speaker from Hong Kong. Also speak fluent Mandarin and English.
I need NOT language exchange either. I dislike English corners and any language corners!indecision

I enjoy traveling and meeting new people though.

 

>>>>> If anyone can show me the China city you live near Shanghai, I can teach Cantonese and Mandarin for free.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
