QUT PhD student in media and communication and well-established freelance writer and journalist gives lessons about China-related classes such as language, culture, history, philosophy and politics.

Methodology

His teaching method is very interactive and communicative. He is good at enlightening students and stimulating the enthusiasm and passion of students to learn more by themselves. He believes that interest is the best teacher. He bases his classes on his abundant journalistic experience and comprehensive reading. Students are allowed to ask any questions about China in class. He likes to be challenged by his students because posing challenges shows that the students are very engaging in his classes.

Details

I can travel to teach classes, but only in the city. If anyone comes to QUT to learn or study by Internet, the price will be cheaper as well.

I am a very experienced teacher and don't offer the first lesson for free, but the first one will be cheaper with 30 dollars/hour.
