Personal Description:

I have over fifteen years' teaching experience. I have tutored over 28 students just on FirstTutors! From 2016 to present, I have been working as a lecturer (assistant professor) on language education at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. I am responsible for the teaching and research of both BA and Masters' courses on initial teacher education as well as on TESOL and applied linguistics. I train Primary school teachers, Secondary modern languages teachers (Mandarin, French, Spanish, German and Italian), and teachers of English as a second/foreign language (ESL, EFL).

I am originally from Shenyang, China. I have been living in Scotland for 9 years now. In my leisure time, I enjoy music, travelling, sports, and learning a new language!

Teaching Experience:

Prior to my current post, I was in charge of the Mandarin curriculum at a Scottish independent school from 2010 to 2016… I also taught a range of university courses on Research Methods, TESOL and Applied Linguistics when completing my PhD at the University of Edinburgh between 2011 and 2014.

I am a very experienced language teacher. Whether your learning goal is to travel to the target country for leisure or for business, to pass an exam or just to learn a new language for fun, I am able to adapt the pace, content and depth to suit your needs.

I started my teaching career as an academic tutor of Mathematics and English at a secondary school in Shenyang, China.

Teaching Approach:

My teaching style draws from a wide of contemporary teaching methodologies from Communicative Language Teaching, to Task-based Learning and Teaching, to post-method approaches. My unique teaching approach always aims to enthuse and engage my students (I have taught learners from young learners to adults). Not only am I an excellent classroom practitioner, I have also had extensive experience of one-on-one tutoring through both face to face and online settings.
