Linguist and Chinese language tutor with 7 years teaching experience all ages and levels welcome

Methodology

I enjoy teaching students of all levels and I am especially helpful to intermediate and beginning level learners. I am experienced teaching Cantonese and Mandarin and welcome students of both languages. I specialize in pronunciation, conversation skills and writing composition.

I am experienced at providing a structured pre-designed course or creating an individualized study plan based around your specific needs and interests. I focus on creating a learning environment where students can make mistakes, ask questions and encourage curiosity about Chinese language and culture.

Background

Hello! I am a trained linguist specializing in Chinese languages. I have 7 years of Chinese teaching experience and additional experience teaching English and Korean. I hold an undergraduate degree in Chinese language and I am currently earning a Master's degree in Linguistics and language acquisition.

As a Native Native English speaker from a mixed Chinese-Caucasian family I can act as knowledgeable and understandable guide between the English and Chinese language. As an avid language learner my self I understand the challenges, joys and struggles of learning a language and love to help others on their personal language learning adventures.
