Personal Description:

I am a 2nd year Chinese student at Edinburgh University. I speak fluent English and I am highly proficient in both Flemish and German. Born and raised in Belgium, I came to the UK when I was 10 years old and took GCSEs in secondary school and the International Baccalaureate (IB) in 6th Form. Further to being a language student, I am an avid traveller, keen sportsman (with a background mostly in rugby with some rowing experience too), former trumpeter and bassoonist and I have spent my last three summer holidays working in Summer Camps with children.

Tutoring Experience:

I took a year off between graduating from secondary school and going to university to work at a school in Canada as a Gap Tutor. As Gap Tutor my responsibilities included: assisting in English Second Language (ESL) teaching, cover teaching, residential boarding house duties and rugby/swimming coaching. I have experience working in various English Second Language summer camps and junior sports camps in both the UK and Canada for the last 3 years. In addition to this I have had numerous work experience stints in Schools across both the UK and Germany.

Tutoring Approach:

I firmly believe that it is important the student sees the tutor as a friendly face who is there to help them with any and all questions, rather than as an examiner who will punish them for making mistakes.

Everybody is individual and has their own unique learning pattern and habits. Further to straightforward academic help, I would also try to assist and encourage students to approach learning from different a perspective so they can start to not only enjoy learning but also develop their own system of independent learning and study.
