This is how 2 referees rated Xia:
I graduated from Durham University with an MA Education and I have Qualified Teacher Status specialised in Chinese teaching. My Bachelor degree was 'Chinese Literature'. I have recent CRB check, Mandarin teaching experiences at both private and state schools in London and Brighton. I also have experiences of private tuition (age 8 months to 23 years old, from beginner to university level) and real passion for this career.
I'm currently teaching at a prestigious private school in Southeast. Prior to that, I had my teaching practice at two London schools. During my placement I've came across a range of students with different abilities, and I have managed to help them achieve outstanding results with a variety of teaching strategies.
I am punctual, easy-going, patient with strong academic background together with adequate teaching experiences. If you would like a weekday evening, weekend or summer Mandarin intensive courses (areas: calligraphy, tourism, business, culture, exam preparation or even Chinese cookery!!), please feel free to drop me an email :)
I'd love to hear from you!
1. Helped my tutee to pass his HSK4 exam within eight weeks of learning;
2. Three year of teaching the English secondary school curriculum.
I have plenty of interests and these can also be involved in extra-curricular activities in terms of Mandarin teaching, such as singing, cooking, origami, paper cutting and calligraphy. In order to build up an interactive learning atmosphere, I will mainly utilise the Communicative Language Teaching Method (CLT), focus on cultural aspects, and use other teaching approaches in accordance with the purpose of learning, learners' age and their language backgrounds.
