« Carina taught me Chinese, 2 years ago, when I was just Secondary 3 and preparing for my O Level Examinations. We had lessons weekly, and she prepped me extensively by giving my weekly Chinese lessons, and sharing with me an abundance of notes which she compiled for me. Although she did not have her set of notes that she prepared for herself since she didn't require extra materials for her own exams, she went online and sourced for other tuition agency materials through asking her friends for them. she really went the extra mile for me, and im glad to say that her tutoring really paid off! I got awarded an A1 in Chinese, and an A2 in Higher Chinese, which is equivalent to A* and A respectively. I am really happy about my grades :) »

Bilingual (English/Chinese) student with lots of patience offering affordable Chinese lessons in London

Methodology

I customise each lesson to suit the learning styles and needs of my students, which optimises their learning while allowing them to enjoy the process of learning a new language. I am patient because I understand the difficulty of learning a new language and hold much admiration for those who try.

Background

I am a bilingual dental student from Singapore with a few years of teaching experience. I love teaching and am well qualified, achieving grade 7 for IB English and Chinese, as well as an A1 for Higher Chinese in GSCEs. I have also received HSK Chinese Level 5 qualification, won Chinese creative writing competitions, and was Editor-in-Chief for my school's English publication.

Carina is honestly one of the friendliest person I have ever seen! being a volunteer with her really reinforces this fact where she is patient and always have a smile on her face even when dealing with the most difficult of students. It always amazes me to see how much patience a human being can have. definitely recommend carina as a teacher to any one of your children/ you! if you're looking for one. her student has always achieved academic excellence. for example, a student jumped from a C/B- student to being an A- student in class. Her school teacher even praised her and awarded her with being the most improved student in her class!

I've been tutoring with Carina at our local (Singapore) tuition centre where we both tutored primary and secondary school children (aged 9 to 16 years) Chinese. Having both graduated from Nanyang Girls High School, we were able to use our Chinese skills to help improve each other's skills. Honestly, I have never seen someone as dedicated as Carina, and even passed tutoring time, she would spend extra time just to ensure that the student knows how to do the work before sending them off. This just shows her perseverance and commitment to teaching. She would go the extra mile to prepare extra pop quizzes and have small goodies as rewards. Carina has a heart of gold and if you were ever looking for someone to tutor Chinese, Carina's the right person.
