Cantonese Teachers/Tutors in Toronto


Recommended Posts

The owner of East West Books, on Harbord just west of Spadina, is a native Cantonese speaker and occassionally offers private tutoring for both Mandarin and Cantonese. Last time I checked it was only 20 bucks an hour. Not sure if he still offers it though, he's not in the store very often anymore. I think the guy's name is Thomas Man.

You can also try the language exchange section in the International Student Centre at the University of Toronto.

If you are interested in learning online, have thought about checking out Skype and Jyve? Even if you find a local teacher, you can practice what you learn with a native speaker, you just need a headset and a computer. Another thing you can do is post an ad for a tutor on the ESL Job Board at http://www.eslteachersboard.com/cgi-bin/tutors/index.pl The ads are for any language - not just English. You can usually ask for a free lesson - a good way to find out if the teacher is suitable for you.

Good luck,

Goperang, have you tried the high schools/ community centers that offer chinese classes at night? I believe they have both mandarin and cantonese classes available. There are many programs around the GTA area, especially where there's a large chinese community, such as the Richmond Hill area.

Even if you can't attend formal classes at the community center, you might be able to find a teacher there and negotiate private tutoring sessions instead. The Chinese Cultural Center of Greater Toronto is one place that offers chinese classes for adults and young children; perhaps you can find more information through them: http://www.cccgt.org

If you know someone who can read chinese, check the classifieds in 明报 Mingbao and 星岛日报 Xingdao newspapers for chinese language programs or tutors.
