Online Mandarin and Cantonese Tutor
I am an experienced teacher of Mandarin and Cantonese with a PhD in Applied Linguistics (Cross-Cultural Communication) from the University of Essex. I am also a Higher Education Academy (UK) qualified lecturer, with expertise in teaching English to Chinese speakers for Business and academic purposes. I have also and worked as academic interpreter.
I am currently working in collaboration with the University of Lancaster on two research projects in Linguistics.
During my time at Essex University I designed and ran an introductory level course teaching Chinese languages as part of the Languages for All Programme, as well as lecturing in MA in Translation Studies modules. I also worked as a graduate teaching assistant on the BA TEFL course, designing materials, teaching and exam marking.
I have extensive experience in teaching English and Mandarin for Business, Engineering and Media at the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education where I worked for two years. For 6 years was a successful private tutor of both English and Mandarin in Hong Kong for learners at all levels.
I design individual lessons to suit the needs and experience of every learner. My lessons are interactive and engaging using a wide range of resources.
Whether you are a beginner in Chinese, a student, or need to enhance your skills for professional purposes, I can help.
I am a highly skilled teacher at all levels as well as native speaker. I can also give you an insight into Chinese culture and society that will help you communicate effectively with Chinese people.
I believe that the foundation of successful teaching and learning is forming good work working relationships in a relaxed environment.
I have a state of the virtual classroom that will enable us to share white boards and video/audio resources as well as being able to see and hear each other.
