  1. Job description: I’m looking for a private tutor who can come to my house for my two children – 3rd and 5th grade. I’d like each of them to have their own time. My children have had Chinese classes before, but it’s been since before COVID that they have had any tutoring. I would want the tutor to assess each child’s level of the language and then go from there. I know my boy is at a more advanced level than my daughter. They hear Chinese from their grandparents, but don’t speak very much, maybe a few phrases. I’d like them to be fluent in speaking Chinese, and eventually be able to read and write it. I’d like to start right away and will pay for any books/materials my children need for tutoring.
  2. Job location: We live in Lakewood, East Dallas, which is across 75, about 15 minutes from the SMU campus.
  3. Job compensation: This is negotiable.
