Language Tutoring and Coaching

Language coaching

Are you interested in learning how to learn a language better on your own? What about several languages? I speak 3 languages well and I’m conversational in a few others. I have more than ten languages on my schedule. I can help you with your goals. 

Learning English

I am an experienced English teacher and I have a lot of experience training teachers how to teach better. My experience as a teacher trainer of adults and children means I’m prepared to teach all ages.  Adult learners with at least an intermediate level will benefit the most from working with me. 

Learning Mandarin

I began learning Mandarin over ten years ago. In 2014 I passed the HSK 6. I can help you with learning Mandarin and helping you achieve a more confident level of fluency. I am prepared to teach beginners to intermediates. 

Note: Please read the “Cancellation Policy” above before purchasing. This is to ensure both students and teacher have a positive experience. Purchased Lessons need to be completed within a certain time period. 

Language Coaching

Sessions for us to work on identifying your language learning goals (in one or several language) and developing a personalized plan to ensure success. 

People who choose this option often fall into the following categories:

  • those who are motivated to learn one or more languages but can’t find classes;
  • people who have learned several languages before but have not maintained their abilities; and/or,
  • people who would rather learn on their own rather than take classes in a language.

I have studied several languages to various levels based on the reasons above. I can sympathize with you.

Before the first session I will contact you to get information so I can prepare for our meeting. After the meeting I will prepare a summary for you with a clear outline of a language learning plan that you can follow. 

Further sessions can be booked later where we can work on identifying more techniques to create a method that works for you.

Why trust me with language coaching?

I’ve been trying different ways to learn a range of languages ever since I was a teenager. I know how languages are learned and how to apply the right conditions to ensure language learning. Managing time and keeping motivation high are often the problem. I can help you with strategies to keep this under control. I have no doubt that I can create a plan and study schedule for you that you can stick to.

English Tutoring

Mandarin model is below. 

Cut and pasted English text:

Intermediate to Advanced learners.

This includes a lot of conversation practice, finding and adapting resources, and ensuring you have motivating content outside of the lesson.

Before our first session I will contact you to find out more about your goals and what you hope to achieve. The first lesson will be more diagnostic so that I can know more about your level and how I can help you. 

Future sessions will build off of our first meeting. I will also help you with training so that you know how to study English more effectively on your own.

 

I am available to help beginners up to intermediate learners of Mandarin Chinese. 

Choose between personalized lessons (beginner to intermediate) or HSK 1-4 exam preparation. 

Before the session I’ll contact you to find out more about your goals and current level. The first lesson will be more diagnostic so that I can know your level more and learn about any materials that you might have. 

If you have no previous knowledge of Mandarin before the lesson, I will get you started with some materials and help you get started.

Further sessions will build off of our first meeting, so be sure to start with a Trial Lesson. The price is much less and it will give you a good idea of how I teach. Start here before buying other packages. 

Note: please be clear about the cancellation policy (at the top of this page) and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions. 

Why trust me with your English Learning?

I have gone through the pain of learning Mandarin myself and I’m now a successful user of the language. I’ve been living in Beijing for about 7 years and I speak Chinese daily. In 2014 I passed the HSK 6. If you are struggling to get to an intermediate level, you need to work with someone who’s had to do this themselves. This is clearly one advantage I have despite not being a native speaker.
