I have a broad range of experience in teaching English, Chinese and Spanish speaking students between the ages 4-18 (in language learning, culture and history), so I have good communication skills for diverse age groups and backgrounds. I have been in the English, Chinese and Mexican schooling systems and so adapt well to different learning styles.
My degree at Oxford was in History so I spent a lot of time in the one-on-one tutorials, and so also understand the tutee experience. I am organised and work hard on making my teaching fun and dynamic so that classes are as productive and enjoyable as possible! The relationship between students and tutor is really important for me.
I have tutoring experience of 70+ hours, working with undergraduates, high school students and even primary school pupils. Tutoring subjects cover computer science, engineering, mathematics, statistics, and CHINESE Mandarin. I have a bachelor and a master degree in (computer) engineering and am currently working towards a doctorate at University of Oxford. I am good at combining theoretical knowledge with illustrative presentation, e.g. figure or table. I use interactive Q&A to ensure students would seize the gist of certain knowledge with high amount of focus. Also I would like to share my previous study experience with students and try to come up with suitable learning methods according to students' actual circumstances.
I have broad ranging experience in tutoring online, having taught a range of students in Chinese, English Language and Literature. I also have experience in guiding university applications and personal statements, as well as conducting practice interviews, and would be happy to help with any applications and personal statements!
I am fluent in three languages and have experience teaching drama to children and adults. I've been doing online tutoring for Theatre Studies, English and Chinese for about two years.
For Drama students:
My lesson usually consists of a warm up, recap of the previous lesson, or a song! Then we'll get into main lesson content. I use powerpoint, images and video clips for references. I would also recommend books for you to read and some practical homework/quiz for you to prepare!
If you need help with working on a monologue, I am also happy to be your acting coach. Please message me for specific requests.
For Chinese students:
For Primary students, storytelling and writing will be something that we could do together. For Secondary students, we will practice comprehension and structuring an essay, go through the syllabus and past paper to prepare for your exams.
If you already speak Chinese and need someone to practice/ recap, I am happy to share culture, history and other interesting topics with you.
I always tailor made my lesson plans for students based on their objectives. Please feel free to drop me a message!

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.
I have over 3 years’ experience teaching and tutoring English in China, as well as TEFL certification. Whilst living in China I passed the HSK 6, which is the highest level of the standardised Mandarin test. I now want to tutor Mandarin here in the UK, and apply what I’ve learned from teaching English to teaching Chinese.
I am a patient and understanding tutor, and always keep the needs and goals of my students in mind when planning and delivering lessons. I enjoy devising activities and games to help my students learn and to prevent my lessons from ever becoming repetitive. I also often utilise video and other media to bring variety to the class.
As a westerner learning Chinese, I have had to overcome the difficulties in pronunciation, tones, grammar and word choice that all foreign learners of Chinese face. I believe that being able to impart the tricks and techniques that I have used myself would be a huge help to students who are facing similar struggles.
