Hi there, my name is Angela. I was born and raised in Guangzhou. My native languages are Cantonese and Mandarin. I can speak English, too.
I like traveling very much. I think traveling is a good way to relax myself. At the same time,I can talk with different people, see different scenery, eat all kinds of food and experience the life of different places.
Besides, I also like watching TV dramas. I like watching Korean dramas, Japanese dramas and American dramas the most. I think watching TV dramas is good for learning a language!
I am a patient, professional and easy-going teacher. I am a good listener and would love to talk about our life, hobbies, job, family, culture, etc.
Me as a Teacher
1) Certificate: In 2017, I graduated from the university with a bachelor's degree in Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages and National Teacher Certificate. I also earned a Mandarin level Test Certificate and English level Test Certificate.
2) 4 years experience in teaching Mandarin and Cantonese for foreign speakers online as a part time private teacher:
I have been teaching Mandarin and Cantonese online since 2016. In nearly four years of teaching, I have taught over 1300 hours of lessons. My students come from all over the world, such as America, Britain, Canada, Australia and so on. My classes have been well received by the students and they have given me a lot of good feedback. I really like teaching my students, because I can not only share my knowledge with them, but also can learn more about the world from talking with them.
3) Three years of teaching experience as a full-time Chinese language teacher: two years of teaching experience in kindergarten and primary school grade 6, and one year of teaching experience in secondary school grade 1-4 (IGCSE).
My Lessons & Teaching Style
I have always believed that speaking and listening as much as possible is the key to learn a language.Therefore, I will try to let you speak as much as possible in our classes. Of course, speak with correct pronunciation is also important, so I will focus on correcting your pronunciation during the learning process as well.
Join my Mandarin or Cantonese classes and I can help you improve your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. At the same time, I also have a lot of study materials to offer you. I will tailor courses according to your language level, learning needs and learning ability to improve your language level step by step.
