Hello everyone! Or shall I say, Ni hao!
My name is Melissa, I am Chinese, raised in Australia and have recently relocated to London. I am offering my services because Chinese language and culture is my heritage and my passion. Many people say that Chinese is difficult to learn, but I teach in a systematically and fun (natural) way that will help you easily absorb the language.
My full-time job is in education so I know how to scaffold the beginning steps of knowledge acquisition. I have 7 years teaching experience and have being awarded Master of Teaching from University of Sydney and majored in Chinese in my Bachelors.
My teaching program can be differentiated for all ages and all language abilities. There will be a strong focus on conversational Chinese and the systematic teaching of Chinese phonic system called Pinyin (to ensure accurate pronunciation of tones).
The cultural aspect will be negotiated by student interest. Some examples may include: The life and teachings of Confucius and Lao Tze Chinese tea ceremony Tai chi Qi gong Chinese Art and calligraphy Chinese history.
1hr: Chinese language learning (including conversation, pinyin phonetics, simple writing)
30min: Chinese Culture activity. No extra charge for overtime after 30min :) Sometimes tea drinking is quite enjoyable!
Kensington and surrounding areas.
Lessons will be conducted in communal spaces such as coffee shops. Alternate venues can be discussed to correspond to the Chinese culture activity
