By Skype.
Where and with whom did you train?
Both in China (Yunnan Education University) and in the UK (Ming-Ai London Institute / Middlesex University).
Tell me about some of your current students.
Except for face-to-face lesson students, at present I also have many online students from other countries (including the ones from far East), as well as from other parts of UK where not very practical to travel to . Though my online lessons are one-to-one and tailored for each individual needs, I successfully organised my students to share their course works, which makes their online learning experience as fun and enjoyable as being in a big class and their classmates are from different ages and cultural background.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I firmly believe that a successful language lesson should be able to engage students in a fun and active study relevant to real life situations, so I use a wide range of teaching methods, materials and activities.
My teaching activities are carefully designed to encourage students' interests and stimulate their creativity.
I tailor my lessons based on every individual's needs, capabilities and personality.
I understand and convey linguistic and cultural nuances, based on my affinity with languages.
