Postdoctoral Research Fellow (PhD graduate) offering Chinese (Mandarin) language learning lessons, English-Chinese language/text translation lessons, up to university level in Nottingham/Beeston.

Methodology

I am happy to give my lessons to anyone (e.g. undergrads/postgrads, A level students etc) who are interested in Chinese culture, happy to learn and improve their Chinese language (oral and written, English-Chinese translations etc) and the relevant skills.

My teaching styles are:
Practical (simulating real conversation context, or professional Chinese writing context)
Informal but professional;
Relax and friendly!
The teaching/tutorial can be either in person or online video/Skype call etc.

Experience

I am a current Postdoctoral Research Fellow working in the University of Nottingham; I have a PhD degree in Food Science. As University teaching assistant during 2013-2017, I've developed professional experience of giving teaching, training, supervision for both undergraduates and Postgraduates. As an output, some of them have won the prize for their project competition.

But, I am also very interested in language and different cultures/history from over the world. I've also been giving Chinese Language (Mandarin) lessons/tutorial since 2017; taught more than 10 students with different nationalities (including British, French, Thailand, British-Born Chinese). As a result, they have achieved significant improvement after the tutorial with satisfaction. I am always being friendly and happy with my students to improve together!
