Certified & Experienced Vietnamese teacher with professional lessons
italki teacher since Jun 13, 2022
My names Tu - Im from Vietnam, currently living in Ho Chi Minh city and I speak southern accent.
I have a bachelor degree where I studied language analysis and teaching method. Furthermore, I have more than 3 years experience in teaching Vietnamese as a fulltime teacher.
Me as a Teacher
To learn a tonal language, it is needed to have a real teacher who can help you build the pronunciation basis and teach you practical language to make sure you can use it in daily life conversation.
Learning Vietnamese with me, you will not only learn about the language but also about the culture. That will help you easily absore the language.
With self-dedication,patience and experience in teaching, I believe that I will help you learn Vietnamese effectively.
My lessons & teaching style
In my lesson,there will be a combination of pronunciation, speaking, listening,..... I believe these skills together will help you learn effectively and avoid boredom.
I have loads of materials with a variety of topics wating for you to explore.
If you don't know where to start or haven’t found any suitable teacher, don't miss my class!

Cô Tú is an amazing teacher! I already taken 20+ lessons from her and I've NEVER once been disappointed! As an absolute beginner, I'm surprised at how much Vietnamese I have learned in such a short time! After watching her intro video, the 3 reasons I chose to learn from her were: 1. she sounded prepared; 2. she looked engaged with her students & encouraged them; and 3. she used Vietnamese to teach Vietnamese. That's one of the best things about Cô Tú... she gives you an immersive environment to learn Vietnamese! She is very patient and uses gestures & words you know to try to explain to you new words or phrases. Only as a last resort does she use English. Her lessons cover everything you really need to know, especially how to correctly pronounce words! Whenever I fail, I NEVER feel foolish with her but instead she motivates me to keep trying! I'm sure there are other great teachers out there but I plan to continue to keep learning from Cô Tú as I couldn't ask for a better teacher!

Classes with Tu have been a great pleasure. I now have completed six lessons, and I continue to be impressed by Tu’s teaching style, preparedness, and attention to detail. In general, Tu demonstrates an excellent knowledge of language instruction. More impressively, though, Tu does an excellent job adjusting lessons to focus the most time and attention toward the areas where I am weaker, while still giving time to strengthen and practice in areas where I am stronger. I have a few different languages with many different teachers, and Tu is definitely among the most skilled I have studied with. I feel extremely lucky to have found such a teacher on italki, and I strongly recommend her.

After a few months' break, I was eager to get back on with my Vietnamese lessons. I chose Ngoc Tu as my new teacher as I trusted her educational background in language studies and her experience mentoring a wide range of students from total beginners to the advanced.
For ‘’higher level’’ Vietnamese speakers, her lessons are designed to be practical yet rigorous. She will make her students speak in Vietnamese as much as possible on a variety of topics grounded in reality and useful in the real world. Then, you will practice reading by going through short passages while she helps you understand the words you missed and highlight the sentence structures that will be useful for you when you write.
As homework, you will be frequently asked to write a short text summarizing a current affairs videoclip or a newspaper article depending on your interests. Tu’s lessons are succinct, densely packed and tailored to the needs each student, which is ideal for those of us leading busy lives.

I've now had close to thirty lessons with Co Tu, and I continue to be impressed. In addition to showing a high level of knowledge of teaching methods, she also has shown a high level of specialization in classes. In the early classes, it was a an even mix of different skills: well thought-out and paced moderately. Over time, she has shifted toward a higher level of emphasis on speaking practice and pronunciation, which are my weak points, and increased the level of my stronger points, such as vocabulary, while also putting less class-time emphasis on the the stronger skills. I really appreciate this. It is common, but impressive, to be a generally good teacher; it is far more rare and amazing to have teacher who really specializes classes to your needs. As a teacher, myself, it is neat as you can adjust to a students needs and feel comfortable in a class. What's even cooler is to be a student in that kind of class. I am very grateful to Co Tu and I couldn't recommend her more!
