Mandarin, Cantonese and Shanghainese native speaker from Hong Kong relocated to Vancouver as permanent resident. My English is at near-native level and I have been working in the language for over 10 years. I love languages and is always enthusiastic to share my knowledge in Chinese to learners and friends. I'm extremely friendly, outgoing, patience and kind, and have a good record of teaching. My students favor me because I wasn't one of those "traditional" Chinese teachers that made them sit tight and listen:P. With my career background in public relations, marketing and advertising, you wouldn't be learning Chinese through boring books but I'll get you exposed to reality world of language usage across different contexts. If you're kids and students, you'd be thrilled by the stories I shared with you during my fashion and tourism events. And if you're adults at work, I can tailor the topics and glossaries for you so you get to learn more efficiently. Don't hesitate to call me for a free trial lesson at 778 829 7207
Education / Certificates
B.A. in Cultural Studies in the Chinese University of Hong Kong; Higher Diploma in Translation and Interpretation in Hong Kong University
I have obtained Grade 1B at the Mandarin Language Proficiency Test and I have fruitful experience teaching westerners (both adults and kids) to learn Chinese (both Mandarin and Cantonese) and is very enthusiastic to share my cultural knowledge. Additionally, I have been working as freelance translator, interpreter and copywriter in the media, advertising and marketing fields across business, legal, consumer, luxury and travel industries.
I prepare teaching materials and use lively methods to teach. I encourage my students to speak and practise with them using good memory exercises and roll plays to help build glossaries, daily conversations and grammar skills. You wouldn't feel bored as we don't just get started with grammars and the boring basics. We learn different things in parallel but you'll find some crossovers and that's what get you surprised - because there might not be quantities of "things" you learnt from me in one hour but you'll find that you can actually start to use whatever you learnt so quickly. The logic behind is that I have got everything well planned across a number of lessons (vocabs combinations, sentence structures and topics). If it is with kids or group of students I'm happy to plan an event from time to time - something as a reality lesson so you get the actual chance to interact, speak and practise! You will never get bored or frustrated with me by your side!
