Central and North London Tutor

Having lived in Hong Kong, Guangzhou and London, I find myself being able to speak English, Cantonese and Mandarin pretty much interchangeably. I also understand the challenge of learning Cantonese and Mandarin, especially the speaking aspect. I believe practicing speaking is key to being able to have a conversation in Chinese (Cantonese or Mandarin).

I received a Merit for MSc in International Public Policy at University College London. Previously, I received a 2:1 for BA (Jt Hons) Politics and Economics at The University of Nottingham.

I have experience in tutoring and mentoring both primary and secondary school students.

My method is to try to draw the student into the topic, at least a little bit, in order for them to engage with the material as I feel this makes it easier for them to understand and remember the concept which is important, especially in maths. Also, I try to ensure that they have a good foundation in the topic and aim to give an overview in order for the student to not feel like they have gaps in their learning. I aim to also ensure that the student feels comfortable with me as the tutoring will be much more effective if the student can freely tell me which areas he/she are struggling in.

I am happy to tutor in Central and North London.
