Personal Description:

I have a joint BA (Hons) degree in English and Chinese from Beijing Foreign Studies University, an MSc degree in Language Education (with distinction) from the University of Edinburgh and most recently, a PhD degree in Education (TESOL and Applied Linguistics) also from the University of Edinburgh. My PhD project was fully funded by the Principal’s Career Development Studentship (Teaching and Scholarship) and Edinburgh Global overseas Research Scholarship. My research looked at the psychology in language learning and teaching.

I originally come from Shenyang, China. I have been living in Scotland for the past six years. In my leisure time, I enjoy music, travelling and sports.

Tutoring Experience:

I have over fifteen years' teaching experience. From 2010 to present, I have been in charge of the Mandarin curriculum at a Scottish independent school. I have also taught a range of university courses on Research Methods, TESOL and Applied Linguistics at the University of Edinburgh since 2011.

Prior to that, I was an language tutor at Beijing Foreign Studies University. I taught Mandarin and English as a foreign language. I helped my students achieve excellent results in international English for Academic Purposes exams, such as TOEFL iBT and IELTS.

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

Tutoring Approach:

I am familiar with a range of teaching techniques which I use to enthuse and engage students (university and secondary school levels). Not only am I an excellent classroom teacher, I have also had extensive experience of teaching through both blended learning and online methods.
