About me

Hi

My name is Zara and I can teach you English or Mandarin Chinese.

I used to teach English in China while studying at university, but my full time teaching career began only after graduating. I have been an English language teacher for over 10 years now, both to adults and children. I obtained my teaching certificate (CELTA) in 2008.

Qualifications & Experience

I graduated from Beijing Language and Culture University in 2003, with a Bachelor degree in Chinese Language.

I used to teach English in China while studying at university, but my full time teaching career began only after graduating. I have been an English language teacher for over 10 years now, both to adults and children. I obtained my teaching certificate (CELTA) in 2008.

My Chinese teaching experience includes teaching at one primary school, at a university and a number of private schools. Recently I have concentrated mostly on teaching online because that allows me to use unlimited resources off the Internet in my classes, for example audio and video with authentic Chinese speech, presentations which I have prepared in advance and can share online, etc.

Teaching Approach

Many people say that Chinese is difficult to learn. I say it is not difficult, it is different.

I can help you learn without stress and you can soon find yourself forming entire sentences and being able to survive in some everyday situations.

Learning Chinese is a lot of fun, you find yourself sitting at home repeating over and over sounds that do not make sense to your family.

It also changes the way you approach language learning. Have you had to study a foreign language and sit through boring classes, writing down countless grammar rules and exceptions? There is nothing like that here. Chinese grammar is so simple that there are barely any rules to remember.

Each lesson includes listening, speaking and something I have had the opportunity to learn about China and Chinese people. I believe that knowing the culture helps communicate with people better.
