Hello! My name is Christine. Originally from Tasmania, I started living and teaching in Brisbane about four years ago. Growing up, English and Chinese have been my favourite subjects and hope to help students make the most of them (or either) as well.
I usually take the first session or two to identify a student's strengths and weaknesses, and what the student wishes to get out of the tutorials to determine a future direction most helpful to him/her. My typical approach is having lessons with some structure/set aims but allowing flexibility, depending on the student's needs.
I am a secondary English and LOTE (Chinese) teacher who has taught Years 7-10 English and Chinese for a few years. I have always enjoyed tutoring students and have provided one-on-one tutoring to students from Years 6 to 12 in Chinese for over a year. I am confident I can do the same for students with their English needs.
Students have enjoyed my lessons and it is a pleasure to see the gradual improvements they make. I have recently tutored a Year 12 IB student with Chinese, with a focus on speaking skills. The student had made significant improvements in her assessments, of which I am proud.
