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.
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.
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.

Whether you are or are studying to be a Photographer, Graphic Designer, Architect, Blogger ... or simply an individual master Ps / Ai / Id
Whether you are or are studying to be a Photographer, Graphic Designer, Architect, Blogger ... or simply an individual wishing to deepen his knowledge, I would be able to put myself at your level to bring you the keys to mastering these software in correspondence with your needs. Indeed, it is very easy to get lost in the immensity of the possibilities of these but, in most cases, it is useless to know all the functions. An Architect, for example, will have no use knowing how to retouch a face while a Fashion blogger will need it ... Trust me, and let me bring you the solution that best suits you in terms of quality and speed of execution.
