Chinese is a very interesting language and the grammar is very easy when you learn the tricks. In learning this language, you can appreciate the evolution of Chinese culture. And many Chinese sayings are related to historical stories. It can also bring you more job opportunities. Since few people learn this language, you will gain more advantages if you can master it. I am from Guangdong, China, so I am fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese. I can make the simplest way to express what you want to say. Also have a conversation with you and help you practice your Mandarin through daily situational conversations. In my experience of learning a language, the best way to learn is to use it more on a daily basis

I've completed my GCSEs a little over a year ago , I'm on here to fund myself in the future (primarily university) . I've averaged above an A (above grade 7) overall with recent experience and am still attending sixth form . Because of this I'll be able to easily relate to and figure out the needs of my tutee as I was in their position not too long ago . I myself studied based on topic rather than necessarily textbooks , this means that I can make due with any textbook or other material (this accounts for difference in exam boards). I can teach a concept from the ground up , or to solidify knowledge on topics as well as teach the basic principles for understanding the topic in the first place . I'm especially good at understanding and taking advantage of mark schemes to maximise grades , despite if the topic is completely unbeknownst to you . Though this seems minor , this tactic means you'll almost never score zero marks on a question . Ergo : if you can do half of the questions on a 100 mark test you'll get around 50 marks (high C to low B grade , grade 5 to 6) however even without understanding the rest it's easy to get at least another 15 marks up to around 25 (you usually cannot get over half marks without getting close to the answer , which is why half the remaining marks is a typical maximum) putting your grade up to to a minimum of a strong B or a maximum of a solid A (min of a grade 6 and max of grade 8) all of which requires minimal work which you won't forget . In English a similar thing can be done with punctuation , so long as you use a type of punctuation once ; you can score easy additional marks and get more marks on other criteria due to the examiner's bias . This is my forté .

****I can teach general exam techniques for other exam boards however I am most familiar with Edexcel content and exam requirements**** Commonly confused with English Language, English Literature explores ideas presented through plays, books and poetry. Whether you’re a book worm, theatre-lover or someone who’s fallen out of love with reading, there is a place in my class for you. I’ll break down each text in chunks in order to understand each story or idea the author has presented. That way, we can go beyond just reading and writing simple ideas about a text, we can begin to explore more complex concepts. Being able to draw your own conclusions from a piece of text based on evidence you’ve found is a key aspect of English Literature. There really is no wrong answer as long as you can prove it! In that sense, I encourage detectives of all abilities to take a stab at these classes! I’ll teach you about form, structure, writing techniques, and many more. Most of all, I’ll teach you exam timing, and how to approach a question with confidence and in timed conditions.

Trusted teacher: A professionally trained theatre director, I have made a career out of working with text by bringing it to life. As a tutor, I look to find ways of helping students do just this. In my classes I work with students to unlock the texts they are studying - honing their analytical skills, providing them with a deeper thematic understanding in order to achieve their academic objectives. English Literature, though, is both a subject for school and for life and I believe the best way of achieving top grades is to cultivate a genuine excitement about literature - from Shakespeare to Steinbeck. My classes, therefore, though rigorous, will never be boring and I hope that by the end my students will share Haruki Murakami's opinion that “the most important thing we ever learn at school is the fact that the most important things can’t be learned at school”.
