About the lesson

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach both Chinese and English to non-native speakers at university level and give advice to students in English essay writing. Part of my teaching is to teach students communication skills and how to make presentations, which is also what I researched on for my MA. Now I am doing my PhD in the University of Leeds, looking at teaching communication skills to medical students in medical consultation. This is a project funded by NHS.

University Teacher's Certificate for Teaching Linguistics;
Certificate of Associate Translator/Interpreter;

The charges I have included above are all the minimum price per hour and may increase depending on the size of the group. There is no extra charge for travel within Leeds.

- Where do you teach?

I can teach either at my home or students' homes. I live in Leeds and travel around the city. I can also travel to neighbouring regions such as Huddersfield, Halifax, Bradford, Dewsbury etc., for which extra 15 pounds is charged for each travel.

I can discuss this with the client.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I can teach Chinese to students ranging from primary school children to adults. I can proofread for and give advice to university students in relevant subjects.
