Personal Description:

I am an experienced and qualified teacher/tutor of Mandarin and EFL with more than 14 years of experience. I offered private tuition for complete beginners to University level, tailoring lesson activities and teaching methodology to the students’ needs. As an enthusiastic language learner and teacher, I believe learning languages and cultures will open doors to knowledge and opportunities that would remain close otherwise. As I have studied and worked in Taiwan, Argentina, USA and Scotland, I possess excellent communication skills and fluency in Mandarin, English and Spanish. My language skills and extensive teaching experience allow me to interact effectively with students from diverse cultural backgrounds. Besides, I have an excellent rapport with both children and adults and thoroughly enjoy teaching.

Teaching Experience:

My teaching experience ranges from teaching Spanish, ESL and Transitional Bilingual Education (English and Spanish) in Chicago Public Schools, to establishing Mandarin after-school program at San Agustin High School in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as well as teaching Adult Mandarin courses at Edinburgh Chinese School. I have considerable experience in tutoring Classical Chinese Literature at university level with excellent results: I helped a student doing a joint honours degree of Chinese and Chinese History at Edinburgh University pass the final exams with a first with distinction in oral. He was also a finalist of “汉语桥” “Chinese Proficiency Competitions for Foreign College Students” UK 2011. I also helped a student of Chinese of Oxford University pass her finals with a 2:1 with distinction in oral, with only two weeks of intensive lessons.

Teaching Approach:

Based on my learning experience and years of teaching/tutoring experience, I have developed a unique methodology that effectively helps students think in the target language and acquire native-like pronunciation and fluency from the very start. My tuition is interactive and fun; I like to use games, role-plays and debates where possible to cover students’ learning experience and to diversify lesson activities.
