You’ve decided that you want to get serious about learning Chinese and that the next step for you is finding a tutor. That’s a big step and one that will take your skills to the next level.
A good tutor can quickly correct your mistakes, provide valuable feedback, and in general make learning Chinese much easier.
But, you shouldn’t only depend on your teacher. After all, you’re responsible for your own learning. I’d recommend using a teacher similar to how you would use an app, a podcast, a course, or a textbook – as part of your Chinese learning strategy – not in isolation.
