History student offering Chinese (Mandarin) lessons up to university level in Edinburgh

Methodology

I believe in student-centred learning, that being said, it is important to know what you'd like to achieve through our lessons (it's no big ideal if you don't know yet, we'll figure it out together!). Some students prefer to use textbooks intended for the HSK, while others simply want to improve their speaking, or reading. Together we'll come up with a personalised study plan for you!

Lesson Structure:
In most cases, I start my lesson with student's questions regarding homework (if any), then a quiz of things we learnt in the previous class. Then we'll focus on things in your study plan, with Q&A and sometimes more extensive knowledge, such as chinese culture, heritage, food, etc. At the end of our lesson, I will assign homework, and you will have some extra time to ask questions.

Background

I am a first-year history student at the University of Edinburgh, and I have been teaching Mandarin to both adults and children since 2014. Back in high school, I worked with friends and classmates who were struggling with their HSK, and became more specialised in vocabulary, accent reduction, and listening comprehension.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £4
Rate for online lessons : £12/h

Details

Mandarin lessons for children and beginners are 15 £/hr (for both online and face-to-face, cost of travel excluded).
The cost of travel varies depending on where the lesson takes place, e.g. café, your home, online (no travel fee), etc.
Can't make it?
Don't worry, I have a 12 hour cancellation policy :)
Cancellations made less than 12 hours in advance will be charged 50% of the amount of the lesson.⁣⁣⁣
For no-shows, a cancellation fee equal to the full amount of the lesson is assessed. A student will be considered a no-show if they are more than 20 minutes late (10 mins for trials).⁣⁣⁣
*Exceptions will be made in extraordinary circumstances.⁣⁣⁣
