Personal Description:

First hour free - This is an opportunity for me to assess your level and expectations and for you to decide if you are happy with me and my teaching methods.
I am a friendly native-Chinese speaker with Chinese Teacher Training Qualification from the Beijing Language and Culture University. I am also a fully qualified Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctor. In addition teaching, I love writing and reading.

BBC reports: ”Researchers in Britain have found that people who speak Mandarin Chinese use both sides of their brain to understand the language.
This compares to English-language speakers who only need to use one side of their brain.” Chinese characters are logograms instead of phonics; I would love to help you explore the fun facts and culture meaning behind the scene. Using both sides of the brain will help in other areas of learning.

Tutoring Experience:

In China I was a Private Chinese Tutor, teaching Korean students mandarin as a foreign language since 1992. In the UK, I have taught Mandarin Chinese in a local Chinese school for a year. I have the experience of making the lesson fun and attractive for the children. I have also given Chinese culture lectures in both primary schools and colleges. I am teaching GCSE mandarin in Chinese School. I have experience to help students get ready for their GCSE exam.

Tutoring Approach:

Every lesson will be tailor-made to satisfy individual needs, interest and skill level. It is important to me that you not only enjoy the classes but also see your Chinese develop.
Naturally lessons will cover, talking, reading, writing and listening. I am also very happy to teach Chinese Philosophy and Chinese Medicine if you have big passion in the Chinese Culture.
