- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I firmly believe that a successful language lesson should be able to engage students in a fun and active study relevant to real life situations, so I use a wide range of teaching methods, materials and activities.
My teaching activities are carefully designed to encourage students' interests and stimulate their creativity.
I tailor my lessons based on every individual's needs, capabilities and personality.
I understand and convey linguistic and cultural nuances, based on my affinity with languages.
Xiao is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have many years of Mandarin teaching experience both in China and in the UK to students at all levels and age groups; experience in designing and delivering bespoke learning material (including audio lessons) tailored to individual needs.
I have successfully delivered Mandarin teaching in the following areas:
• Business and business negotiation
• Vocational / exam study
• Casual (incl. Conversational Chinese, Chinese Calligraphy, etc.)
I also have experience in:
• Teaching private Yoga lessons
• Interpreting and sales jobs in the UK
• Music performance for public (Guzheng)
• Working in the tourism industry in China
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Where and with whom did you train?
Both in China (Yunnan Education University) and in the UK (Ming-Ai London Institute / Middlesex University).
- Tell me about some of your current students.
Except for face-to-face lesson students, at present I also have many online students from other countries (including the ones from far East), as well as from other parts of UK where not very practical to travel to . Though my online lessons are one-to-one and tailored for each individual needs, I successfully organised my students to share their course works, which makes their online learning experience as fun and enjoyable as being in a big class and their classmates are from different ages and cultural background.
