The last stretch before you take off!
1. Is there a cancellation fee?
Generally there is no penalty for cancellation, however if you cancel within six hours of our scheduled class, you will be charged for the hour. For example, our class starts at 4pm, you call to cancel at 8 am, you will not be charged. If you call at noon to cancel, you will be charged for the hour.
2. Do I need to bring anything to class?
You can just bring a pen, notebook and our lesson materials that I provide at each class.
3. Do I need to buy books?
No, you don't need to purchase books because I will provide the texts at each class. If you prefer you can buy your own books. Most of them can be purchased on Amazon.
4. Are there any homework?
I don't usually give out homework but I will be lying if I say that you don't need to do any work outside of class. Often you are required to memorize and learn the vocabularies for each lesson. Sometimes exercises will be given at the end of the class.
5. Are there any tests?
I will give evaluation periodically, this will be in the form of a mock HSK exam or an oral exam for Cantonese students.
6. Will you commute to teach on location?
Currently I am not able to commute outside of downtown Vancouver.
7. Will you be able to teach more than one person at a time?
You can take the lessons with a friend or a partner, the rate for two people is $40 per hour. Group lessons are in planning stage but they are not available yet.
8. What is your availability?
My schedule is flexible. Please contact me directly and I will do my best to meet your needs.
9. Can I phone to make an appointment?
Yes. You can phone or text me at 778-865-3093, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The best way to reach me is via text or email.
10. Can you teach via internet?
No. This option is not available because the quality of video/sound over the internet is inconsistent, it can be very distracting.
11. Do you teach children?
No. At the moment I teach adults only. I recommend checking out the local Chinese school in your community.
