Hi language learners!
I'm Char, originally from Xi'an (home city of the Terracotta Warriors), China, a fun and innovative Mandarin Chinese and ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher with 8 years experience in language teaching/tutoring.
My previous and current students range from early years primary schoolers, senior high school exam takers, to adults learning for interests or travel / business. The most common words they used to describe me are: innovative, approachable, trustworthy.
I'm skilled in Differentiated Teaching, Interest-oriented Learning and Culture-based approaches. High scorer of IELTS (8.5).
Strong linguistic professional with a Master of Arts in Conference Interpreting from The University of Manchester and a Bachelor in Teaching Chinese as a Second Language.
Please do not hesitate to give me a shout if you need any Mandarin/ESL help!
I can imagine how daunting many Mandarin learners would feel, especially studying in a non-immersion environment! But I always tell my students, Chinese is actually not difficult, it's just very different from English. Once you get your head around after some lessons with me, you'll find it a lot easier than you thought!
It only takes one thing from you: willingness to learn! All the rest I can guide you through in your learning journey.
