Experienced Mandarin Teacher (3 years of teaching in Italy and the US)with a Chinese Second Language Teaching qualification

Methodology

I would deliver Chinese based on students' needs and interests. Normally I start with PinYin used for sounding out Chinese characters followed by daily greetings and simply sentences. Students are expected to say sentences rather than simple words after 7 or 8 hours of learning. Dialogic Pedagogy is mainly used to enhance listening and speaking at the same time. Chinese character and grammar would not be touched on too much at the very beginning but will gradually be built up over time.

Classes will be taught in an interesting and effective manner. Adults and children are all welcomed.

Background

I am currently studying for the Master of Teaching at the University of South Australia.

I have worked in the US as a university tutor teaching Chinese as a second language for two years and in Italy as a school classroom Chinese second language teacher for one year.

Obtained Chinese Second Language teaching qualification at the University of Beijing Normal University.

Be able to teach adults and children in the library at the UniSA

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $40/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $195
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $380

Details
