About me

I love visiting new places and learning about different cultures. While living in China, I went on a number of trips to the Tibetan plateau and mountains around Sichuan province, including a trek around Mount Gongga, which stands at 7,550m. I also bicycled around Taiwan last summer.

Tutor Experience

I absolutely love tutoring, as I enjoy helping students and seeing their improvement and development. For the past 4 years I have been teaching at a university in China, helping undergraduates improve at spoken and written English. I also tutored small groups of students, and had a number of 1:1 classes. I taught a range of levels from complete beginners up to advanced business students, and I have experience of teaching kids as young as 3 up to adults aged over 50.

I always ensure I tailor my lessons to a student's individual needs and requirements, whether that means helping them prepare for a specific exam or providing a more general lesson around a given topic. Whatever the level, I try and make learning relevant and engaging by incorporating useful subject matter that you want to learn and will be more likely to remember.

I speak Mandarin to a high level, being half Chinese and having lived and worked in China for 4 years. What sets me apart from other Chinese teachers is that I also understand the challenges involved in learning such a difficult language, having studied intensively in China. I incorporate techniques in my teaching that I have found helpful in passing the HSK 6, the highest level of the standardised test for Mandarin.
