Personal Description:

I am currently doing my MRes (Master by Research) at University of Nottingham. I am a native speaker in both Mandarin and Shanghainese with a standard accent. I'm also able to manipulate Cantonese with a Hong Kong accent. I am very interested in teaching Chinese language. I would like to teach Mandarin in all levels and lessons can be tailor made.

Teaching Experience:

I was teaching Mandarin in Hong Kong to local people and English native speakers in Cantonese and English.

I have also helped students to obtain Grade 2 Level A Mandarin Proficiency Test.

Now I'm helping a Slavic native speaker with her Mandarin in one-to-one courses in Nottingham.

Teaching Approach:

I am very flexible: approaches will be adjusted to meet students' needs. Basically, I've been developing my own teaching approach which includes three frameworks: the conversation-sentence practice, the tree of Chinese characters and the visualized memorization method. The first one is based on daily conversation in Mandarin with practical sentences and phrases. This is expected to help students not just repeating single words but use sentences to remember different useful phrases in the real daily conversation with the given topic. The second one is to build up systems of Chinese words to Latin and any other non-Chinese language native speakers so that they can memorize single words in a more logical and systematic way with interest. The last one is to help students to remember particular phrases or expressions through selected pictures in order to visualize some abstract meanings for them to understand in a better way.
