Introduction

Hi there! I am a Cantonese and Mandarin native speaker. I am a qualified teacher and currently working as a Chinese teacher in Australia. I finished my Bachelor's Degree in Greater China Studies and English Language, graduating with First Class Honors (top 8%) from The Education University of Hong Kong, 2nd in Asia & 12th in the World in Education according to QS World University Rankings in 2016.

I am well-experienced in teaching since 2010 and my students are from all walks of life and a great variety of age groups. Living in an English speaking environment, I understand the difficulties of a second language learner when it comes to learning grammar, syntax and vocabulary when you are not around by Chinese speakers. No worries! I can help you!
