- I have considerable experience in tutoring students for many major Mandarin exams: HSK, A Level, GCSE. I provide all the exam materials free of charge for my students. All of my students have achieved excellent scores (90% above)! One of my private student recently achieved an outstanding mark for her HSK 3 exam (297 out of 300)
- As a university teacher, i am very experienced in universities mandarin degree exams, my existing students achieve A or A* every year.

4. My Teaching Methods:

I can explain tricky grammar points and other aspects of language for my advanced level students, as well as provide suitable activities to consolidate and practice this language.

5. What my students say about me:
__-The best choice to whom seeking a Professional, Educated and Friendly tutor. Becky is an extremely good Chinese teacher and I continue to have lessons with her to this day. She is very flexible and enthusiastic and has a very good teaching style! I believe that her system has been much more effective than a large majority of tutors that I`ve used in the past. What is especially good about her is that she is patient. I feel I am the type of person that takes a little longer to learn things. Becky`s instruments to help me understand the core basics has given me a foundation in which I am able to practically learn on my own. I have to say that it is worth the effort, time, and money put into the sessions with her. Heydar (Consultant from Kalido Private Office)

__-Studying mandarin with Becky was a really valuable experience. I found the one-to-one style of learning the best way to make solid progress in the language and Becky’s teaching style was very thorough and engaging. Becky helped me to be well-prepared for my HSK 3 examination and achieve 99% in this exam. I would certainly recommend Becky as a mandarin teacher to anyone who is dedicated and committed to learning the language. Lisa (student from Cambridge University)

Becky has taught me for over a year now and I am so happy that I found her. Becky is a great teacher that understands how to cater to her students’ needs. Moreover Becky`s teaching is accessible and engaging, even when tackling difficult material. Becky also always has confidence in her students which has helped me tremendously. Alice (student from SOAS)

6. My Fees:
*** In terms of price, I am not the cheapest (nor am I the most expensive!) teacher. However, I firmly believe that my experience and training have made me an excellent and highly professional tutor.

*** If you are interested in group classes, please contact me that can be arranged (price negotiable)

If you are looking for a proper, qualified and highly experienced tutor and you are a serious learner, I will be the right person to help. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
