2nd Year Biomedical Engineering student, tutoring Mandarin & conversational Cantonese, up to intermediate level.

Methodology

I like to be very free and flexible. Depending on what you need the most help with, that is what we will be focused on first, whether it is day to day conversation or vocabulary! When I tutor, I find it most important to enjoy when learning a language. Our first lesson will help us structure how you want our future lessons to go and what you want to achieve.

Experience

I have been peer mentoring throughout my 1st and 2nd year at university, as well as giving private 1-2-1 lessons online. I have also tutored classes up to 30 students, ages 11-16, helping them to achieve HSK2 from no prior experience in one academic year.

I have known melody for many years she is a very talented and intelligent person who makes studying look fun. She has an amazing and unique way of approaching tests which makes her good practicing at stress management techniques and ways to understand what questions are actually asking you for. She is also very talented in many areas of science, maths and languages.
