Personal Description:

I am half Chinese, half Thai. I grew up from a mixed-cultural background, having lived in Hong Kong, Singapore, and currently London. I'm holding both HKSAR and British citizenships.

Having gone through the GCSE and IB system myself, I offer students specialised support in subjects including Biology, Chemistry and Mandarin Chinese (Standard or Higher). I am also familiar with the A-level system as I have been teaching students in London over the last 7 years.

I am also keen on supporting beginners or business professionals who are interested in learning Mandarin Chinese.

I am a good listener, and a patient tutor. I always seek to build a trusting relationship with the tutees, whose learning progress and comfort is a top priority.

Aside from academics and tuition, I am also a freelance artist, specialized in oil painting, charcoal sketches and watercolours.
