Private Cantonese Tutoring for Mandarin Speakers


If you speak Mandarin, our focus of teaching will be different. Our specially designed course materials for Mandarin speakers will help you get comfortable with the extra tones used in Cantonese and adapt to the differences between the two.

Why Private Tutoring?

Each student’s story (or even accent) is unique, and we like that challenge. Private tutoring allows you to:

  • fine-tune your tones and accent to speak it the way a local does
  • parallel the two languages and recognize their differences in grammar and terminology
  • choose your preferred teaching language - we can teach classes using Cantonese, Mandarin or English, or a mixture of these
  • control the pace of the course to optimize your learning
  • organize classes around your schedule, especially if you travel often
