Information About Chia-Jung - Cambridge tutor
This is how 3 referees rated Chia-Jung:
I am a dedicated and experienced Mandarin Chinese teacher and I can teach both traditional and simplified characters. Teaching is my passion! I consider myself to be very organised, conscientious and attentive to details, esp. in correcting students’ mistakes in assignments and exams.
I was born and brought up in Taiwan, then came to the UK for Higher Education. I have the right to work in the UK now.
At this moment, I teach at Cambridge Centre for Sixth-form Studies and work as a freelance Mandarin Chinese teacher, tutor, translator and interpreter. I have been a private tutor for students and teaching staff at Cambridge Uni. since 2014. I taught Mandarin for Babel Language & Cultural training at ARM, Cambridge in Feb.- May 2015. From Sept. 2013 to July 2014 I taught Mandarin at the Stephen Perse Foundation (Pre-prep, Junior & Senior Schools), Cambridge. I have been an assistant examiner for the University of Cambridge International Examinations since June 2014. Moreover, I have worked as a private Chinese tutor (including on-line via Skype) intermittently since 2005.
Before settling down in the UK at the end of 2011, I taught Chinese at the University of Iceland and at Icelandic senior high schools (15-20 yrs old). In addition, I have also taught a short Mandarin course for adopted Chinese children (5-8 yrs old) and their parents at the Uni. of Iceland. The students I have taught have been aged 2 to 70. I was also in charge of the Mandarin Placement Tests (4 levels in total) for all the Icelandic senior high schools from 2009 to 2012.
I have taught Chinese as a Foreign Language to ab initio learners many times in Iceland and Cambridge, either at schools, institutions or as a private tutor. I have always worked in the Education sector and I have been a teacher since I was 20. First, I taught English in Taiwan, then Chinese language, Western Art History and Chinese Art & Symbolism in Iceland. Now in England, I am teaching Chinese again.
I always adjust my teaching methods to suit individual needs. I use internet, mobile phone and story books for teaching apart from textbooks.
