Are you in Shanghai now? Do you already read and speak Chinese? Some ideas:

  • Make a post on 百度知道 or 知乎.
  • Ask your Chinese friends in Shanghai to help you.
  • Ask your more knowledgeable foreigner friends in Shanghai to help you.
  • Post a physical advertisement (with your contact information) on the bulletin boards in the Chinese department of various Shanghai universities. I bet a few graduate students will call you.
  • Make a post on the classified section of the Shanghaiist or similar Shanghai-themed websites.

Thank you so much for your detailed reply! Yes, I am currently in Shanghai. I am fine with speaking Chinese though a little less confident with reading and writing. I will definitely try one of your suggestions! Thank you again! :)

the point is, classical Chinese is a compulsory part of middle school and high school Chinese语文 in China, and a subject for those who major in Chinese language and literature in the university. I think there is no specific tutoring for classic Chinese in China. I'm sure you're don't want a tutor for chinese high school or middle school entrance examinations right? not counting that those tutor only know how to teach a native Chinese speakers. 

I think some kind of mooc will help but I cannot say which one to recommend since I'm a native chinese who's now preparing for the university entrance examination or Gaokao, in chinese.
