My teaching methodology can be summarised in three points:
1. Differentiated Teaching: Every learner has different disposition, sensitivity to languages etc;
2. Interest-oriented Learning: The most effective way to learn a language is to explore learner's interests and design teaching accordingly;
3. Culture-based approaches: Learning a language is never about the language per se, it's about understanding its culture so learners can really apply linguistic knowledge to real-life communications.
Hi language learners,
I'm a fun and innovative Mandarin Chinese and ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher with 8 years experience in language teaching/tutoring.
Strong linguistic professional with a Master of Arts in Conference Interpreting from The University of Manchester and a Bachelor of Education in Teaching Chinese as a Second Language.
I've been learning Mandarin with Char for almost a year and he's a fantastic tutor! He's knowledgeable and always well-prepared, and can always explain complicated stuff in simple language. I almost gave up Chinese but Char helped me find my way and now I'm a lot more confident in speaking Mandarin. His teaching style is more fun and has a clear focus on speaking daily Mandarin compared to the Chinese tutors I had before. Thank you again for your helpful lessons Char! Xie xie!
I had the pleasure of working with Charlie for 2 years in an international school in China, where Charlie taught and led ESL courses for middle school students. Charlie is dedicated, reflective and passionate in teaching and clearly he is respected and adored by his students. He shows great respect to students and encourages critical thinking, so it's always a pleasure to observe the classroom discussions.
As a colleague, Charlie is warm, helpful and fun! He is someone that is very dependable to work with, as well as a good person to have a beer with after work. I would recommend Charlie to any student or employer. You'll be having a knowledgeable, patient and fun teacher during the lesson. What's more to ask!
