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 : £12/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £60
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £120

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.
