Information about Thomas
I graduated from Oxford University with a degree in Philosophy, Politics & Economics. I then studied Mandarin at Peking University on a British Council Generation UK-China scholarship.
As Confucius once said: To learn something and timely practice it it is a pleasure, isn`t it?. Learning is done best when motivated by interest, so my tutoring style aims to inspire students to love learning. I am an excellent motivator and develop my students into inquirers and critical thinkers. There is always a further why? question, which my students become fond of asking!
My main academic interests include Philosophy, English Literature and Chinese Language.
I am extremely passionate about my hobbies which include playing the piano, learning Chinese, cooking and surfing. Im very keen to promote extra-curricular interests to my pupils and Im keener still to teach them (those that I can!).
