Qualified Taiwanese teacher of Mandarin living in Belfast: Media experience, Good English

Methodology

My classes are student-centric. I try to focus on the areas with which you have problems and work out ways to strengthen your abilities by seeing what works for you as an individual. In a group, I focus on getting the group to a standard whereby students can communicate in Mandarin and gain enough confidence to make mistakes. Most people learn best by making mistakes so most good teachers encourage mistakes to build confidence.

Background

I am Taiwanese. I gained my certificate in Chinese teaching this year in the National Taiwan University in Taipei. My certificate is issued by the Taiwanese government so I am certified to teach Chinese worldwide to the highest standard. I was a television producer and I managed an English school in Taiwan with my husband for ten years before I came to the UK.

Chiufen's CV

Summary
I have a certificate in Mandarin teaching that is awarded by the Ministry of Education of Taiwan. The certificate demands the highest levels of spoken and written Mandarin. I have a decade’s experience in teaching English to Taiwanese children and adults in my own school. I am a creative and supportive teacher and I believe that the student is at the centre of all education.
My background is in television. In Taiwan, this requires the highest level of proficiency in spoken and written Mandarin.
I love to travel independently and as cheaply as possible and I have travelled in eighteen countries. I have made meaningful connections with many individuals whom I have met on buses, in markets and at the roadside. I have been a student of life for a very long time and I enjoy expanding my experience when I get the chance.
I am a cheerful and gentle person who truly enjoys teaching. I particularly like to teach younger children because they learn so quickly and give of their best immediately, without fear of failure.

Experience
Owner of an English school (80 students) 1999 - 2008
I produced original teaching material and classroom materials for an English school that I operated with my husband for ten years. We produced all of our own texts and taught English in a way that was accessible to Chinese speakers because our method took account of the differences between Mandarin and other languages. The school never advertised and we had a roll of 80 students when we emigrated to the UK in 2018.
Executive Producer, Director and Producer: Various Television Companies 1999 - 2008
I was involved in the production of fifteen documentaries for television companies including the Discovery Channel and Taiwanese Public Television. The subjects of the documentaries ranged from the arts to aboriginal affairs, the environment, culture and history. A documentary about the White Terror period in Taiwan, for which I was one of the producers, won an award at the prestigious Golden Horse Film Festival in Taipei
