Oxford M.Sc graduate
My name is Wen-Yu. I was born in Taiwan and grew up predominantly in Thailand. Despite my international background, I have perfectly fluent English (just so you know you will not need to be concerned!) and perfectly fluent Mandarin. I also speak fluent Thai. I am perfect for teaching students who study English as a Second Language, whether you are from Taiwan/Thailand/China/Korea/Japan/Indonesia/anywhere else. But of course, if you are a native speaker, then my tuition practice will function just as well!
I have previously studied International GCSEs (the global equivalent of GCSEs from Cambridge International Examinations board, which are no less difficult than the UK GCSEs) and gain 6 As and 6 A stars. After that I gained a fast-track entry into the top ranking university in Thailand, with a scholarship for scoring the highest points on the science section in the Entrance Examinations. Post-graduation, I came to the UK to study a Masters at the University of Oxford and recently graduated.
I have numerous teaching experiences, from ages 12 to 28. I am able to teach both hard sciences and social sciences subjects such as history and politics. However, my strength is the sciences and mathematics. I have extensive experience tutoring physics, chemistry, biology and maths for GCSE/A-levels/IB.
I am also a skilled debate and public speaking coach with extensive experience. I also consult students on university advice and career advice.
All of this can be provided on a CV upon request. I have full working rights in the UK.
I currently work as a teacher in Kingston.

review(s) for Wen-yu.
Wen-Yu tutored me Maths, Biology and Physics. She was very warm, very friendly and very caring. She not only made me understood the subjects, but increased my confidence overall. I am very grateful I met her and now I see her as a friend - I think this is much more productive relationship than being intimidated by your teacher. Thanks to her, I passed my GCSE exams with high marks! (A stars and As!)I will never hesitate to recommend Wen-Yu to anyone who is interested in learning and having a good time at the same time. I was very lost at first and she gave me very useful school and career advice! She also likes to talk about interesting things that make science and maths more relevant to my life than the tedious subject it is at school! She set an excellent foundation for me to continue studying Maths and Biology at A-levels, something I would have never imagined without her help. :)
As a university student, I am generally quite a demanding student and expect a lot from my tutors and their tutoring style. With Wen-Yu, I have never been disappointed. She has always been dedicated, passionate and enthusiastic about the subjects she taught. She made boring subjects very fun to learn. Unlike other teachers/tutors I had before, she was always open to new ideas, and was always very patient. Through her detailed feedbacks and comments, I improved in a very short time. She not only helped me to do better in the subjects she helped me with, but above all, she also contributed in building my confidence by making me believe in myself and in my own capacities. She is now more than a tutor to me, someone I truly care for. I believe that whoever she will tutor will be very lucky to have such a talented person helping him/her. Therefore, I have no reservation whatsoever in recommending Wen-Yu.
Wendy is a great and very friendly tutor, she taught me so much and inspired me to want to learn more. The one problem i have as a student is that i am sometimes scared to ask questions, at the risk of sounding dumb, but with Wendy you will never have that problem as she is very open and considerate. Most importantly, she is very VERY knowledgeable!
