“Suzy has been an amazing teacher. Thanks to her endless patience and flexibility, not least of course, her sense of humour, which she has required at times in teaching me Mandarin!”
Annie is a native speaker of Mandarin, and has been professionally qualified as a teacher in China and as a Chinese Mandarin teacher in the UK. Professional, patient and passionate about teaching, Annie believes a constructive style of teaching is most effective, building solid foundations in grammar and pronunciation to lead students to fluency.
“Annie is an excellent teacher. She prepares well for the lessons, is very professional in her approach and has a good focus on what is required. I have learned a lot since I began having lessons with her.”
Li Li is familiar with all Mandarin exams ranging from GCSE and A-Levels to IB and the new HSK. One thing she prides herself on is creating her own learning materials and finding resources that match individual students’ interests so they have the best possible sources to learn from for their specific needs.
“I highly recommend Li Li as a Chinese tutor. I have been studying under her guidance for 4 months and during this time my Chinese ability has improved noticeably. She explains the meaning of new Chinese words and characters clearly and provides clear context about how they should be used in sentences.”
Cathy is a native Mandarin speaker from Beijing with 20 years’ experience in teaching Mandarin. Due to her institutional teaching background, Cathy’s class is very organised and structured, consisting equally of listening, speaking, reading and writing so that students develop all four skills simultaneously.
“Me and my mum have been working with Cathy for a while now and have really enjoyed her teaching style and found the classes to be very engaging and stimulating. Although we are at different levels, Cathy has managed to cater for both our need within our joint tutorial classes. She has helped us both improve our speaking as well as writing abilities in Chinese.”
