Online Chinese Courses

Chinese Language Tutoring

The Chinese Language Teacher Certification Program is offering free Chinese summer tutoring opportunities for grade K-12 students in 2023. All instructors are native Chinese speakers that will help your children achieve their goals in Chinese.

We are offering tutoring sessions online through Zoom. Registration is required. Please see the “how do I sign up” section for details.

At this time, registration is closed for summer 2023.  Changes to this year’s tutoring reduced the number of anticipated tutoring sessions available.  If you contacted our office about registration before 4:30pm on April 27th, you are still eligible to complete registration.  Please do so soon if you wish to.  Please note that tutoring slots will be very limited this year, and it is likely that we will not have enough slots for all interested participants.  Tutoring session sign-ups will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. 

Professional Development for Chinese Language Teachers

We provide professional development, scholarly services, and academic support for Chinese language teachers in the U.S. through various workshops, conferences, and programs.
