Hi! I am completely fluent in Mandarin Chinese and qualified to be a translator based on my HSK scores. I have over 10 years of experience teaching Chinese to English speaking students, teaching English to non native English speakers, and also tutoring people in accounting / mathematics / or other related coursework. I am very flexible and to me learning should not be boring but should feel like you are talking with a friend! Sometimes I use teaching materials and sometimes, I find, that simply having a conversation can be more helpful for the student. It depends on a number of factors, but, in my experience, the most important aspects of learning are (A) mixing it up, to prevent boredom (B) repeatedly writing and reciting previously learned material so that it's well ingrained into the mind (C) breaking down the parts of a problem and addressing it piece by piece.
Most of my career and academic experience was spent abroad, which gives me experience with a wide range of backgrounds and cultures! Because of this, the universities I attended were not available on the drop down list that this website provides, so please refer to my academic background below:
Postgraduate Diploma (Masters equivalent) from the London School of Economics and Political Science in Accounting and Finance
Bachelors Degree from Nanjing University in China in the field of Chinese Studies and Linguistics
Thank you very much, I look forward to working together!
