Private Vietnamese Teacher

I have instructed Vietnamese language and culture to Americans for 6 years after my arriving in The United States in 2008. I always consider teaching foreign languages is not only a career but an art of inspiration. My expertise is how to conduct and train students to pronounce, speak, read, write and understand Vietnamese language and culture accurately. All of my students reached their goals after 26, 32 or 44 weeks of learning Vietnamese. I received good feedback form them too.

About Chau

I taught Vietnamese language and culture to foreigners, English and Vietnamese to Vietnamese adults and students in Vietnam for 30 years before arriving in the United States in 2008. Then, I continued to instruct Vietnamese language and culture to Americans in Virginia and Washington DC.
I got an Associate degree in Pedagogy in Vietnam in 1977. I also was trained how to instruct U.S diplomats at Foreign Service Institute (FSI) and officers from Defense Language Institute (DLI). I have had enough calm and patience to deal with hard teaching conditions.

I received awards from The Department of State (FSI) and School of Language Studies (FSI) in 2014 and 2015.

Wow, I have attended Vietnamese class for Westerner's many times at our temple. I never understood until now that the names and pronunciations are two entirely different things. With this knowledge I will progress in my studies more quickly. Chau gave me plenty of study materials to practice. Super happy and excited to learn more after our first lesson. He is very patient with my Midwestern US accent while teaching me the Vietnamese Tonals. Thank so much Chau!

I am a native Vietnamese speaker and I have been living in the US for 3 years. I studied Hospitality Management so I can teach you Vietnamese and share the Vietnamese culture with you as well. I was an au pair for 2 years and I have experience teaching Vietnamese for my host kids. They could speak a little bit Vietnamese and sing some songs. I love teaching, especially teach Vietnamese because that is my mother language and I would love to teach people all around the world our language. You will have good experience with me! :)

About Nhu

I am Nhu, 27 years old and I am from Saigon, South Vietnam. I was an au pair, exchange visitor, in the US for 4 years. Au pair is "on par" or "equal" in French, is a term for a in-home child care provider, who lives with a host family as part of an international cultural exchange program.
Au pairs and EduCare companions are typically young international visitors who travel to the United States on a J-1 Visitor Exchange Visa to acquire a better understanding and appreciation of American life while living with an American family and caring for their young children.
In 2 years being an aupair, I had experience tutoring my 2 host kids with home schooling. Basically, I sat down, watched school videos with them and then explained for them what they didn't understand. I also helped them do homework (I meant I let them do their own works first,

then I checked and helped them correct what they did wrong). I taught them. Vietnamese and they learned it so fast. They loved it.
I love teaching, especially teaching English and Vietnamese. I am now an online English Teacher for Antoree.

Hi there! I just make it short. Both of us know that you want to learn it seriously so let's make it happen and try our best in order not to waste time and money. I believe that I can help you... I am looking forward to studying with you!!! Thank you for reading my message.

About Trang

Xin chào! My name is Trang. I build up lessons based on what you want to learn instead of what I want to teach so that we can help you reach your goal as soon as possible. I am from the North so if you want to study the Southern accent, I am afraid that I can not help you speak with 100% accent of the South but I had lived in Ho Chi Minh City (in the South) so I can still help you with the dialect. Learning a language is a big journey so let's make that journey fun. I know I should write more about my experiences to gain your trust but I guess all will mean nothing if you try and find out I am not so good as I said. Therefore, please drop me messages if you have any questions and let's make it work. Thank you for reading!!!

I have been taking class with Trang for a few months now and I must say she is amazing. Classes are very organized and you know exactly what you are covering and where you left off from the last class. She is very enthusiastic always makes class fun. Vietnamese is not an easy language and Trang's approach makes all the difference in the world. She makes class very fun and productive as well. One of the best teachers and classes I have ever had. I can see myself taking Trang's class for a long time. so much to learn!

I believe that students should be given an opportunity to be shown how to practice. This is so that when the instructor is not there to guide, the student is able to know step-by-step of what they are supposed to do.

Vivian was very helpful! She easily guided me through the initial lesson beginning with basic tuning, hand and finger position, posture and we were playing some basic music by the end of even that first lesson.

As a first-generation Vietnamese-American, I have had the amazing opportunity to grow up with both lifestyles.

Vietnamese was the household language for my entire family, naturally,
it was my first language up until 3rd grade.

I am extremely friendly, patient, and knowledgeable in my expertise and would LOVE to share the intricate nuances of the Vietnamese language!

I have been teaching for 6 years at college level, being a Vietnamese native and fluent in English, there will be no problem in communication during lessons. I love to help English speaking students learn and understand not just Vietnamese language but also the culture.

About Thu

I'm teaching not as a teacher but as a friend who loves to introduce my language and culture to others. When you take lessons with me, feel free to address what you want to learn, what you don't know or aren't sure of, we will work it out together.

Hello,

I wrote a review previously after my first lesson but now I've been learning with Thu for over a month I thought I would write a new review. She's very easy-going and takes your input into consideration. If you have requests, she will happily teach you what you want to know. She is very knowledgeable. Most importantly, I have had a very unpredictable and hard schedule to work around, especially living in another time zone to her. She keeps in contact with me on a very regular basis to help work in last minute arrangements for lessons that would not otherwise be possible as I cannot stick to my timeslot and has been an amazing help in this regard. Just wanted to say thank you :)

If you are like me and your first impression of this site was that there was only really 1 instructor that had ratings, then you may be a bit skeptical about booking a lesson. If that is the case, please allow this review to change that!

Thu came prepared with a clear plan to the lesson, and did not waste time getting started. She was very clear and easy to understand, and is a very pleasant person. I feel confident that I will be able to learn a lot with Thu. I will write a much more detailed review when I've had more lessons but for now I am very pleased.

"Anh (Mr.) Chau is a great instructor. He leverages his 30 plus years of experience and huge collection of lessons to custom tailor a study plan to match t
he unique needs of the student. If you're serious about learning Vietnamese and willing to put in thr work, he will help you meet your goals."

Regan
"I was a student in Mr. Chau Nguyen’s beginner Vietnamese class. Trying to speak a new language can be embarrassing, but Mr. Nguyen created an encouraging
atmosphere and was very patient. He gives ample opportunity for students to ask questions and provides thorough explanations. Mr. Nguyen did a great job of breaking down the lessons in manageable segments that were appropriately challenging. He also used various teaching techniques so that each class was fresh and unpredictable.

I put in the time to complete the homework and review the vocabulary and sentence structures that we'd covered each week. After a handful of classes, I went from practically zero language ability (aside from a few food terms) to being able to articulate some simple questions and answers in Vietnamese. I looked forward to attending the classes and found them to be rewarding."

"Mr. Chau is a dedicated, professional teacher with immense pedagogical experience who clearly puts a lot of time and effort into preparing his lesson plan
s. He can easily adapt lessons to the needs of his students and includes important cultural and historical information in his lessons. He is particularly skilled at preparing his students to operate in professional settings."

"Thay Chau uses a philosophical approach to cozy students into the language then pushes you to apply it pragmatically. I enjoyed learning with him, especia
lly for reading."

Marc
"Mr Nguyen's course teaching introductory Tieng Viet to non native speakers is a very good course which demands close attention from students, but is a wel
l built and practiced class to show people how to learn the language. It is far more useful than any RosettaStone course or online class, as Thay Giao Chau takes very good care to show how the language is structured, and with practice how you recognize the patterns in speech. Are you asking a question? Are you asking a 'leading question'? Do you want to know what a person is doing? All of these points are discussed. Even when I was not feeling as healthy as I could have been, Mr Nguyen's class is structured to be very participatory - don't think you will show up and not have to answer questions - and it is for this reason I believe the retention of the material is improved. I would commend anyone who is a non native Vietnamese speaker to work with him to learn how to learn the language. -Best, Anh Marc S."
