Personal Description:

My Name is Zak. I am a 29 year old from the Sunshine Coast. I am currently in my final year of a bachelor of business at the University of the Sunshine Coast, minoring in game design, marketing, and new venture development.

Tuition Experience:

Taught/tutored English in China for 7 years, and have been tutoring Mandarin Chinese for the past 18 months. Many ask why learn from an Australian and not a native Chinese-speaker, which is a good question. The biggest reason is that having studied the language myself, I have had to overcome many of the challenges my students face. This unique insight enables me to explain new words, grammar points, idioms etc. in a way that English speakers can easily understand, based on my personal experience studying the language. This, coupled with my natural Beijing pronunciation, gives me an advantage over other Mandarin tutors.

Tutoring Approach:

In order that they get the most out of their time with me, I find out what my students want to achieve with their Chinese, then tailor my lessons to help them to accomplish that aim. As we learn characters, words, sentences and more, my students learn to become independent learners through the use of electronic dictionaries (or on a smartphone), online tools and resources, and by finding their own way to overcome the challenges of learning a second language. The idea is that once our lessons finish, your learning won't.
