I prefer to teach students who aim to have high-level Mandarin skills, but I am also happy to teach students who just want to learn enough to get by on a trip to China.
I believe that language lessons should be structured and focused, interesting and engaging, and with a focus on real-context input (we need to get a strong 'feeling' for the language.)
I believe that most people struggle with motivation and knowing how to study at home, so I also help my students with their own self-study skills.
I bring the learning skills of a professional classical musician and advanced language learner to my teaching. I have years of experience teaching language learning (and music), and have taught in private language schools in Australia, China and Japan, and at two universities overseas.
* Travel charge will differ according to distance travelled.
* Cancellation fee ($20) only charged if cancellation is made on the day of the lesson.
*HSK LEVEL 6 AND HSKK ADVANCED CERTIFICATES (highest-level Chinese language level tests, both written and oral — I know how to learn Chinese to a level where I can understand university lectures, and be a guest panellist on TV shows)
*TESOL CERTIFICATE IV （English teaching qualification）
*Bachelor of music and Graduate certificate of international business (I'm educated and I know how to learn! Mastering a musical instrument requires high-level learning skills and study skills.)
