Experienced Chinese Teacher from Hong Kong providing Fun online lessons, why don't you give it a try?

Methodology

As a language lover, after many years of studying languages, I understand how difficult it is to convert what you learn to words, especially the traditional classroom rigid styles of teaching will not get you anywhere. That is why I prefer fun, relaxing lessons that are effective.

My lesson is full of joy and I always try to relax my students with my sense of humor and a lot of laughs. We can talk about anything in the lessons, your pets, the "lovely" weather in the UK, your hobbies, don't worry about being a beginner or making any mistakes, we all make mistakes. Just let go and have fun. You will find that your Chinese is improved in no time.

I provide Chinese lessons for daily use, traveling and business. Also HSK focused lessons. My lessons are conversation based and student centered. It will be well designed for your own needs. And every time after lesson, you will receive the lesson report for your own revision. If you have any questions about the syllabus or lesson plan, feel free to drop me a message.

Background

Ni2hao3, my name is Edes, I have been teaching Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese and English for 5 years. I graduated from the University of Hull in the United Kingdom with the Bachelor degree in Marketing Management.

Work Experience and Area
I am a language enthusiast who cannot pass a day without exploring the world of languages. I can speak fluent Cantonese, Mandarin Chinese, English and Japanese. That is why I want to share my passion with my students. To share the skills of learning a language. My passion led me to study in Beijing Language and Culture University for the certificate of Teaching Chinese as a Second Language and in Beijing Normal University for the certificate of Putonghua Trainer.

I have worked in Hong Kong, Macau and Osaka, with public schools, private schools like Global Citizen and Private companies like Hyatt Regency Hotel. I do online teaching, face to face, 1 on 1 lesson. Also corporate and Intensive training. My students aged from 3 to 90 years old and they learn Chinese for different reasons, from having a hobby to dealing with Chinese customers.

Teaching Methodology
My lesson is conversation based and student centered. The main goal of my lessons is to get the student to speak and use the vocabulary they have learned. I always design my lessons to fit different needs. And I always try to create a relaxing environment with my sense of humor and different activities.

Who am I after class
I am a backpacker when I am not on a job. One of my biggest accomplishments was to travel around the world for a year with a tiny budget. And I am proud of myself everyday when I remember the days I spent conquering the Himalayas in Nepal, the struggles I had when I got bit by a monkey in Bali Indonesia.

I learned English conversation with Edes for almost two years when she stayed in Japan. She always properly offered the topic we need to discuss globally now. She always helped me to think about problem what we need consider.
She is also really interested in Japanese culture, and she always has been studying traditional Japanese culture. Since she has been traveling around the world, she was really a knowledgeable guide for me.
She is best tutor not only to learn language but also everything.

私は75歳の日本人です。老人が趣味等で集まる 人と木 と言う街かどデイハウスでEdes先生に英語を教えて頂きました。楽しいlessonをしていただきました。それだけでなく旅行にもご一緒させて頂きました。今でも私の信頼できる英語の先生です。

I am 75 years old Japanese. In the town where people like old people gather for their hobbies and trees, Edes taught English at the day house. I had a fun lesson. Not only that, but we were also able to travel together. I am still a trusted English teacher.
