I am a Chinese national who tutors Mandarin at GCSE and A Level. I was educated at a Beijing University to Masters level and my knowledge of the country, its customs and language is extensive. Having worked internationally in China and the West for the last 15 years, I have now settled in London after a successful career in business and I thoroughly enjoy sharing my language and Chinese culture with those who want to learn.

For the past 5 years I have been providing private Mandarin tuition at all levels, from complete beginners, basic conversation, Chinese for Business, HSKS exams and those keen on literature and Chinese history.

I tailor my teaching to suit the individual student’s needs and learning styles.When teaching for GCSE and A Level, I design lessons around the key reading, writing, listening and speaking elements of the syllabus, taking account each student’s strengths, weaknesses and requirements. For some students the focus is strictly on doing what is necessary to pass examinations, particularly where time is tight. Others enjoy a more varied approach, including using walks in the park, visits to museums and doing Chinese cooking as a vehicle for introducing new vocabulary and practising sentence structures in a more practical and enjoyable way.
