New Chinese tutor
I am looking for some suggestions. I recently found a Chinese tutor as an additional resource to my studying efforts. Although she is willing to help me, she has no experience teaching Chinese to foreigners, and really doesn't offer much more than a Chinese speaking warm body to bore with my practicing. Anyhow, this means that I am going to have to find a way to make best use of my time with her. Does anyone have experience with using a tutor with Chinesepod lessons or other resources? I would like suggestions as to how I could use my study time with her to best help me in my learning. I can read and write comparatively good, but my speaking and listening is poor. Normally, for people living in China, it is the other way around. In my case, I am a bit shy. I don't normally want to talk to people, but I do spend lots of time studying Chinese characters and stuff.
Thanks in advance.
