Experienced UQ Master of Chinese translation and interpreting student offering Mandarin-related tutoring

Methodology

The primary focus of language teachings will be immersing the learners in a language environment. This would include a lot of talking and conversation over a wide variety of topics. Enough reading and listening materials are also needed for sufficient language 'input' before correct and natural language 'output'.

Background

I studied Psychology at UQ during undergraduate and am now studying Chinese Translation and Interpreting. I've had education for 9 years in China, 4 years in Singapore and 3 years in Australia. I've also had experience in teaching both Chinese and English languages. I have a standard mainland Chinese accent for Mandarin; and American/ slightly Australian accent for English.

Rates

Travel Fee : $5
Rate for online lessons : $28/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $120
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $240

Details

Cancellation must be made at least 3 hours before the lesson, due to potential travelling time, or a penalty of half of the lesson fee will apply.
