Native bilingual (Mandarin and Cantonese) offering personalised Chinese classes in St Andrews

Methodology

I find it extremely important to personalise my teaching method. Having taught students ranging from toddlers to adults, I know that different students need different levels of motivation and way of engagement. For young children, I recommend learning through games and stories; for mature students, I recommend a more conversational based approach.

Background

I grew up speaking Mandarin at home, since my mother is from Beijing. But Cantonese is the native language of Hong Kong where I come from.
I have six years of tutoring experience in language subjects, ranging from toddlers to adults for professional purposes, and children with special needs.
I am currently learning Spanish myself, so I understand the difficulties of acquiring a foreign language!

Rates

Transportation Fee : £10
Rate for online lessons : £16/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £80
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £160

Details

Rates are negotiable! Vary according to the amount of preparation required and travel distance. For students with higher level, material needed is usually simpler.

Hilary's response

Saurabh is very sweet to have looked for a tutor for his grandmother, who is an intelligent lady quite undefeated by age Very glad to be teaching Mrs Lau!

Angus

Perfect! Hilary is great, highly recommended. Very friendly, explained everything in detail and got a good amount covered in our first lesson.

Hilary's response

Though we haven't had a formal lesson yet, speaking over the phone, Angus is a student with great potential. He is interested, patient with himself and devoted. Looking forward to our first meeting!
