- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been tutoring children in Mandarin for nearly 1 year. I plan courses both for one-on-one tutoring as well as teaching groups. Recently, I've worked as a teaching assistant in a weekend Chinese school with a group of kids aged 1-5. In the past few years, I have helped adults and elderly people in continuing their education and guiding them towards appropriate resources and networks.
In the past few years, I've been guiding adult and senior learners to reach appropriate educational resource. I have a thirst for knowledge and enjoy helping people to keep learning. I am patient with senior people and little children. I believe it's because I design the learning experience in an inspiring and encouraging way.
