I am passionate about languages and communication, and strive for understanding on all levels. I find that languages can and should be fun and useful, and I believe that the most valuable skills in language learning are the enthusiasm to try and the confidence not to be held back by mistakes. I find students' grades will naturally improve as soon as they are truly engaged by the subject that they are studying. Effective methods are also key for fast learning and these should be personal, but there are several elements that are universal and the most important factor is that the student can feel interested in their subject.
Willing to travel: 4 miles
Experience: Working as a University Lecturer in China over a period of two years teaching degree-level foreign languages, I was appraised as one of the most successful and appreciated teachers in the department. I also built up a successful private tutoring business which enjoyed steady growth based solely on referral, and my students enjoyed consistently improved grades and many of them went on to pass internationally recognised exams or become regional contest winners in their field. The vast majority of my previous private tutoring business was with secondary school students and my most extensive experience is with university students, but I would also be willing to tutor adults.
