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 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!
