*I offer a special rate for 1:2 or group tuition. Please message for more details.

Over the past few years, I have traveled to different regions of France to put my language skills in practice and gain a wider understanding of the rich French culture.

As part of my degree course, I am professionally trained in using IPA in English. I am also experienced in teaching phonics and IPA, as well as English as a Second Language. Having lived and studied in the UK for over 6 years, I speak English at a near-native level.

I have experience in helping children with special education needs (SEN). I have been in university placements working with children who have speech, language and communication needs, especially those with autism and learning difficulties, under supervision from speech and language therapists. I am also able to give advice and advocate for them and their families.

I am a warm and compassionate person who is patient with students and committed to help maximising their potential.

Tutoring Experience:

I have three-year experience in teaching French (from absolute beginners up to A-Level), English as a Foreign Language/Second Language, IELTS and Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese). primary English and Maths. I have taught children as young as 4, and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

Languages
Depending on the learner's preference, I incorporate dialogues, role-play and drama apart from the traditional way of teaching languages using textbooks and exercise books. I encourage students to write their own notes and/or vocabulary book so that they can acquire the language more effectively. Sometimes, music and videos are introduced to further immerse my students in the language and culture.

Special education needs (SEN)
Home activities suggested by the school, educational psychologist, speech and language therapist and other professionals involved. I will incorporate the knowledge and skills acquired in my degree. For example, focusing on whole-word recognition for children with learning disability, and using language that are appropriate for the child. Visual support such as picture cards with key words on very often helps them communicate.

Maths:
Topics are taught and explained if the student is not clear about them. This is followed by practising lots of questions and drills.
