Teaching Approach:

You will soon find you have the ownership of your learning with my tailored course that focuses on the areas that suits your learning style and pace. My personal interests in writing, storytelling, music and drama have often created a very flexible approach to teaching and learning Chinese as a second language.

Storytelling -- I like to improvise all sorts of stories to make sense of words, phrases and speech patterns, so you will remember them, tell them and share them with your fiends -- young learners particularly benefit from storytelling.

My interests in Cambridge history would easily make you link the language and place -- we talk about the place we live.

Please note:

Before the first class, I suggest that we have a free 30 - 60 minute meeting so that we can introduce ourselves to each other and discuss exactly what you would like to study, what areas you prefer to focus on and what your goals are. It will also allow me to assess your language ability, make suggestions and allow you to ask any questions.
