Mandarin interpreter with 25 years experience gives lessons to students at all levels

Methodology

I have a degree in Chinese from London University. I lived in Beijing for 24 years where I worked as an interpreter, translator and teacher. Now back in London I tutor both children and adults. My goal is to demystify Chinese and get more people to learn as grammatically it is quite simple and the spoken language can be learnt quite quickly. Language has always fascinated me and I believe language learning should be fun and never a chore.

Background

I have taught interpreting to the staff of an NGO in Beijing and interpreted for many news organisations. I have also done translations for charities, journalists and feature film subtitles. I currently teach adults and children studying at GCSE level but I have also taught beginners. I think being a native English speaker who had to learn the language from scratch can sometimes give me an advantage when teaching others.
