Personal Description:

I obtained a first class degree in Chinese at SOAS, London University and then spent over 20 years living and working in Beijing, China. My husband is Spanish and so that is the language we speak at home but my mother tongue is English.

Tutoring Experience:

I have over 20 years' experience tutoring and interpreting Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. I am currently working part time as a public service interpreter in both languages. As a native English speaker who had to learn both languages from scratch, I feel I am uniquely placed to know the problems and pitfalls that learners face.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that everyone learns differently and I will first spend time getting to know exactly what you want and how you learn best before coming up with a personalised plan. For me, learning languages has always been fun so I will make sure it is enjoyable and not dry, rote-learning.
