ONLINE LESSONS AVAILABLE - FIRST LESSON FREE - This is an opportunity for me to assess your level and expectations and for you to decide if you are happy with me and my teaching methods.
I have a purpose classroom, with whiteboards etc and a wealth of teaching material. This creates and strong learning environment which benefits learning.
As a speaker of four languages I know what it feels like to be a student as well as a teacher, so I like to ensure my lessons are not boring but also not just fun and no learning development happens.
2017 to date In these three years I have students pass GCSE and A- Levels, including 3 people who took their GCSE a year early.
2015-date teaching Mandarin at a local private school.
2006-date Having moved to the UK I have taught at BBC Worldwide, London Conversation Piece, Basingstoke Queen Mary College, as well as numerous one to one classes for adults and children of all levels from holiday conversations, academic like GCSE & A Levels and professional usage such as legal, museums etc.
Because it is important to Not be complacent and look to develop new skills; in August 2015 I travelled to China to attend a Teacher Development course at Beijing Language & Culture.
2001-2005 Qualified as a Mandarin teacher at the Taipei Langauge Insitute and taught people from the UK, USA, Japan and numerous other countries.
Every student is different so whilst my all classes cover the basics, they all are developed to personally meet your requirments and expectations.
I use various teaching methods, such as role play, newspapers, television episodes, even a trip to chinese resturant as well as a variety of text books and mock tests.
I will explain the grammer and how culture effects the language.
I speak with the standard correct Chinese pronouciation and use both simplified and traditional characters and even classical.
It is important to me that you both enjoy the classes but also see your Chinese develop.
Naturally lessons will cover, talking, reading, writing, listening

Moreover, she tailors the lesson to my stated need, namely to acquire some conversational Chinese rather than trying to learn literary Chinese which would involve lengthy study of the Chinese characters.
Hui-Mei was very flexible in setting up our lessons so that I could learn what I needed to for a short trip rather than being forced into traditional way of learning from scratch.
This allowed us to create a lesson plan based around my holiday plans and questions and conversation for this trip.
We concentrated on travel essentials such as food, currency, basic greetings etc which was essential as I only had a 9 week time frame to learn.
