Creative and Adaptive Mandarin Teacher Offers Lessons to Students Learning Chinese as a Foreign LanguageS

Methodology

My goals as a teacher in Chinese studies are to impart knowledge of Chinese language, culture, economy and society, and to help students gain competence in further study and employment. There are two main principles guide me through the six years’ teaching.
Firstly, effective teaching should be student-centered with the consideration of individual needs. Language teaching should take into account students’ needs. An effective teacher needs to be flexible, creative, and resourceful.
Secondly, good teachers not only deliver knowledge, but also motivate students. A motivated student assumes responsibility and ownership for their own learning and goes beyond any requirements to pursue their own interests and goals inspired by the course. Therefore inspiring students with motivation is the key to ensure successful learning.

Experience

I have very good teaching experience in Mandarin language and Chinese cultural studies area. During the last 6 years I had worked in three UK Universities and taught Mandarin modules from beginner’s level to advanced level. I am also an experienced teacher for school age children. Each year I recommended high achieving students to summer shcool, scholarship or job opportunities in China.
