Experience / Qualifications

I have experience in Chinese, English, and Mathematics tutoring for over 4 years.
English level: IELTS 8.0/9.0 (I will be a good explainer)
I specialize in tutoring English for international testing systems, such as IELTS and TOFEL. I got a total score of 8 (out of 9) in my first IELTS test. I have helped over 30 students with their IELTS exam studying. I provide consulting services on European university applications for oversea students. I got an offer from Oxford, LSE, and UCL in the UK and UvA in Netherland. I specialize in applications in social science and humanities. My housemate is a PhD student in Oxford and she can provide science consulting if you need it. I have helped over 20 students with their applications, including giving advice on time management, school and programme selection, and Personal Statement, CV, and writing sample.
Math is an important subject and mode of thinking to master. I specialize in tutoring math for school and the SAT, GRE, and GMAT exams. I have been a teaching assistant in math in a high school in China, helping Chinese students with their college entrance exams. I have also had GMAT exam experience myself and got full marks in math. My goal is to explain and teach math in the most understandable and solid way, and also to deal with exams in the smartest way.
Hi, I'm Siqi, a native Chinese grown up in Sichuan and Guangdong. I am a master student studying at the University of Oxford and I have had over 10 foreign students who learned Chinese with me. I love sharing my language and my culture with new friends, and I am good at designing classes for all levels' students. The class will be highly personalised and is for everyone who is interested in learning Chinese for business/study/fun. I love traveling and I believe that we'll be good friends! For my previous students, I love taking them to Chinese restaurants/shops to study Chinese in an immersive environment. If you are interested in that, don't hesitate to sign up :) Looking forward to meeting you online/in person.

Martin
Professional documentary photographer gives his advice on how to develop his approach and his photographic work
ABOUT THE TEACHER Martin is a professional photographer and photojournalist. Through his numerous personal projects, he is particularly interested in youth and geo-environmental issues. The 21st century and the upheavals that accompany it particularly fascinate him. During 2017 and 2018, he carried out numerous projects in South-East Asia where he was able to work for seven months. The most important of these is entitled The Faces of the Mekong. Using the mythical Mekong River and its resources as a common thread, it provides a broad perspective on the geo-environmental issues related to development in the Indochinese peninsula (Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand). He has also focused on Vietnamese and Laotian youth through the prism of street sports and urban culture. In 2019, he travelled to Hong Kong to cover, among other things, the uprising of the pro-democracy movement, which earned him a nomination for the Bayeux Prize for War Correspondents in the Young Reporter category. In parallel to his projects, Martin also responds to commissions from the press, NGOs and private companies. His work is regularly published in the French and international press (Le Monde, Libération, The Washington Post, Le Figaro, Vice, Reporterre, Mr Mondialisation, Fisheye Magazine). They have been awarded several times, including the François Chalais Young Reporter of the Year Award 2015 in the photo category. He was a finalist for the Grand Prix Paris Match du Photoreporter étudiant and a winner of the Young Talents Photo Prize by fotofever. These projects also lead to exhibitions and conferences. PRACTICAL OUTING For a more concrete and playful practice of photography, this outing will allow us to work on different aspects of photography: - Mastering your camera, whatever it is. If you practice photography with your smartphone, you are also welcome. - Work on framing and composition. - Using light as raw material - Learning about street photography. - Post-production of photographs on Lightroom (only on request). IN-DEPTH TRAINING The training consists in accompanying you in the development of your photographic projects and in the setting up of your activity of photographer. This training concerns photography as I practice it. That is to say, photography that speaks of the world in which we live and which, at the same time, is creative with a real aesthetic research. In other words, we are halfway between photo reportage, documentary photography and artistic photography. This programme is tailored to each student and is divided into two main parts 1) The creative process : - Developing personal photographic writing - Preparing and carrying out projects - Assimilate the photographic narrative and the codes of photoreportage - Knowing how to be a versatile photographer to diversify your sources of income - Responding to a photographic commission 2) An activity that is a source of income in the long term: - Communicate well with the right tools - Finding funding for your projects - Sell your projects and photographs through various channels - Mastering productivity techniques to be efficient while remaining independent - Find clients and trigger concrete orders - Multiply your sources of income With this training, I will be at your side to accompany you in the different stages of this process. Together we will set your concrete short and long term goals and we will work day by day on the best method to reach them. In concrete terms, the training consists of working meetings by video conference or in person. This training does not require a particular age or level of education. Nevertheless, certain prerequisites are necessary such as a good general culture (to understand the world in which we live), a certain maturity as well as a basic technical mastery of photography.
