Over 9 years tutoring experience with children and adults, 14 years teaching my two children Mandarin.

Tutoring children: I have been teaching children from 4 up to 16 years old.
I have designed the lessons into activities-based learning including interactive games, arts and crafts, songs, and engaging activity sheets. This teaching method has enormously stimulated and motivated my students to participate in my lessons. For example: play guessing games to learn the objects, �Simon says� to familiarise action words, and making �chatter boxes� to introduce useful phrases like "I love...I like...". I also use activity sheets to make books, and continually use suitable fun cartoon books to read together with my students. They really enjoy what I have been doing in the lessons and their learning progress very well.

My lessons are structured to let my students easily progress from words to phrases and then to sentences. I have designed useful templates to prompt interactive conversations with my students. I also creatively make up easy songs to help learning new words. My students have so much fun, at the same time, re-enforce what has been learned in previous lessons.

I try to create a relaxed environment by following my students' interest and then engage them into learning. I also aim to challenge kids who have done very well in their lessons and are capable of taking in more.

My philosophy of teaching is making learning fun, maximize learning retention through a variety of audio, visual and physical activities. I am always looking for better ways and better ideas to improve my tutoring.

I also guide parents to source additional media like CDs, DVDs, internet and other resources to help them support and enhance their children's ongoing leaning in between lessons.

Tutoring adults: Lessons focus on practical language usage as well as focusing on each student's specific interests and needs. We explore important sentence structures and grammar, brings out frequently used words and phrases, then expand into common and practical mandarin conversations. For students who are interested in reading and writing, I will guide them to better understand the meaning and structures of characters by explanation and through comparisons. This approach serves better for retention of learning this language.
