Hi, my name is Chenyao. I am a native mandarin Chinese speaker. I have lived the in Edinburgh for the past 10 years. My professional background is in business and international trade. However I love languages and teaching. I started private tutoring in my university days and carried on ever since in my spare time. My clientele for Mandarin Chinese tutoring are mostly adults who have a fond interest in Chinese culture, or a work connection with Chinese market/companies. Although occasionally I do have younger students too. I believe the best way to learn a language is to learn through context. I therefore use a lot of examples in my teaching, and I endeavor to create a lot of opportunities for students to speak during the sessions. Students feel stimulated and fulfilled when they finish a session. Currently I also teach speaking English as a foreign language through a Chinese online platform. I look forward to helping you having fun while learning Mandarin or English as a foreign language.
