Personal Description:

I am passionate about languages and communication. I got my first degree in Mandarin and am now about to finish a Master's in Applied Linguistics. I love teaching and helping people discover the joy of foreign languages. My working life has been based around language and communication - as a tutor, translator and interpreter.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching languages for 25 years, lately online. I teach French, Spanish and Mandarin.

Teaching Approach:

I believe that anyone can learn languages and that it should be a fun and entertaining process, not boring and repetitive. I tailor my courses to each student's individual needs and learning style. I am especially good at building up confidence in people who are struggling or have previously struggled with language learning. I feel that my experience of having had to learn the languages that I teach gives me insights that native speakers don't have, into where the difficulties lie or how to avoid falling into certain traps. But at the end of the day, I am a firm believer in the idea that language learning should be about communication ability, so while I can and do help people pass exams, I also like to help them see the language more holistically and give them the tools to understand and to make themselves understood in the target language.
