Ph.d in business management graduate offering Chinese lessons both oral and written in Manchester

Methodology

Listening always comes first when learning Chinese. Different students have different progress. Some have to learn Chinese from basic and others may have slight or more understanding of the language. My approach is to treat different learners differently which all depends on how well is their listening, how much they know about the pronunciation of each character, how fast they learn and are they able to adapt the knowledge from what they learn. It is not easy to learn Chinese and the process maybe very boring, but I will make it pleasant by using visual images, story-telling, relevant examples and encouragement to make lessons vivid and enjoyable. I am a hard-working, most importantly a patient and passionate individual who would like to pass the knowledge of Chinese language to others.

Background

My native language is Chinese which I can speak and write in excellent form. I have graduated with a Ph.d degree in business and management in University of Manchester , which means I am able to communicate and write in English fluently too. I have given out tutoring in Chinese for six months in Singapore when I was studying and living there. I was elected as a student representative of Chinese language subject and achieved the top result in Chinese at 'A' Level. Meanwhile, I also obtained 2nd Prize for Chinese calligraphy competition at my 'A' Level. One of my friends is now learning Chinese from me and his oral in Chinese improved quite fast for the past several months. If you are interested in Chinese culture, language and would like to improve, please contact me.
