Reflecting upon my previous teaching experiences, I prefer to teach according to the students' personality and their learning rate; since each person learns new knowledge at different pace through different method, I would like to explore the most suitable learning method with the student. In general, if no preference is given, I can do both online and face-to-face tutoring depends on the location.
Language: For beginners, I generally start with a brief introduction of the corresponding culture of the country then move on to the basic reading and writing. Practice for oral and listening would be conducted throughout the class. For a more advanced learner, I prefer teaching the language through reading articles, news or books that aren't too difficult to understand. I will go through the sentences, paragraphs with the student and learn grammar and vocabulary along the way.
Math: I can help with student's homework and prepare pre-read for the upcoming topics. In my opinion, mastering in math is all about understanding and practising, therefore I would go through the basic concepts and practice examples with the students. I like to let students to come up with the answers by themselves, even if it was wrong, I could help them understand the mistakes and improve from there.
Science: I can help with student's homework and prepare for the upcoming topics.
I am an outgoing and smiley University of Melbourne student currently majoring in Chemistry. I have a qualified certificate from International Baccalaureate Diploma and is highly experienced in teaching, both in groups and in individual, with elementary to middle school students about language, math and science. I grew up in multiple countries, which allowed me to experience diverse cultures and learn different languages. I'm fluent in English and Mandarin and am familiar with the fundamentals (speak, read, write, listen) of Japanese and Spanish (Argentina accent).
My travel fee will depend on the student's location.

I've had Yuna as my teacher for 2 years now, and she's helped improve my Chinese ability drastically. The way she teaches is always structured, and I truly feel her enthusiasm to better me as her student. She has allowed me to have more confidence in my Chinese speaking ability and improved my grade in school. The wide range of works and examples she incorporates in her lessons really makes the language feel more usable and relatable to my own life, and I feel I'm learning what I would actually use in everyday speech. Overall, Yuna's preparation and devotion to her students is her shining point as a tutor.
Yuna has been a fantastic friend to me for 3 years. She's always been very supportive, sensitive and optimistic. Her communication skill are exceptional, she can always find interesting and engaging methods when it comes to explaining things. Her bubbly personality has made it very easy for her to form bonds with others. She will not only be a wonderful teacher but also a great mentor and friend.
Yuna is very fluent in both Chinese and English. She is very passionate and patient. She is very cheerful. It would be nice having her as a tutor :)
