- When are you available?

I tutor full-time so am very flexible, including during school holidays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach students from Year 4 to University level, depending on the subject. Beyond GCSE, I can teach Chinese and Japanese.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I have extensive experience tutoring online, and tend to use Skype as the means for doing this. I have several alternatives for overseas students such as BOTIM, IMO and Zoom.

I make every session productive and enjoyable, and all my students have hugely benefited from the programmes I have designed for them.

Experience

I have 4 years' classroom teaching experience (Chinese and French) and well over 1000 hours' (5 years') tutoring experience, teaching a range of subjects from Year 4 to University level.

For 2.5 years I have also worked as an Education Consultant. I provide academic assessment reports, advise families on school selection, accompany families on school tours, organise extra-curricular activities for students and translate marketing material into Mandarin for education agencies.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes. I have also registered with the update service, which means my DBS is always valid.
