I am an international student from China and I've been in Australia for about 3 years. I completed my high school in Gold Coast, Queensland and I'm now doing Bachelor of Biomedicine in University of Melbourne. I'm fluent in both English and Mandarin Chinese. I'm passionate about the cultural difference behind the difference of languages.
In my teaching, I like to combine the textbook content with my own knowledge about the topic. You always get more than you expected out of my class. As a high achieving student in Chinese subject even back in China, my understanding of the language is much greater than average. You can learn characters, improve vocabulary and expression quicker, better, and with fun when I involve the story and culture behind words and grammar in my teaching. I can also share my experience of living between eastern and western cultures with you so that you can learn some fun facts, gain an insight into the countries behind the language you study or see your culture from a different angle.
I have experience tutoring middle school and high school students for school subjects, both in-person and online. My students love me and stick with me for long term. They achieve A level in most of the subjects I've tutored. They reflect that they are inspired by the way I approach their problems, and they become more confident to complete work well independently.
I achieved QCE 98/100 in External Chinese and ATAR 97.8. My completion and high achievement in QCE External Chinese gives me familiarity with the school system of language teaching. If you are a school student, I will help you finish your assessments the best you can with an understanding of the curriculum.
It should not be too hard because there is quite a large Chinese-speaking population in Melbourne, and you can see signs in Chinese on the street. It's a relatively easy environment to get familiar with a new language.
It's not very easy because it's a very different language from English and there are quite a lot of special expressions that evolved in the long history of the language which is no straight to make sense of. However, you can still learn it well if you spend time memorizing, practice reading and speaking, as well as communicating with native speakers to learn correct expressions and understand the logic behind the language.
