Personal Statement

Welcome to my profile. My name is James. I graduated from the Baptist University of Hong Kong. I have a Bachelor's degree (Hon) in Business Administration, majoring in Applied Economics. I got my TEFL in February 2013 so I'm also qualified to teach English as a foreign language. I speak Cantonese, Mandarin, English, French and some basic Italian. Currently, I work as a Chinese Teacher at a private school called "Trinity School" in Teignmouth. I have been working there as a Chinese Teacher for more than two and a half years now. I teach mostly GCSE and A-Level pupils but I also give Beginners' Chinese lessons during the club time. As a hobby, I do a lot of martial arts. I've had extensive training in Thai boxing (Muay Thai), Wing Chun, Brazilian Jiujitsu and Filipino Kali and I was the Tertiary Education Muay Thai Champion in Hong Kong in 2007. I also used to give private martial arts/self-defence lessons.

Teaching Experience

Trinity School, Teignmouth, Devon Chinese Teacher since Jan 2011

Teaching approach

From my teaching experience in the private school, I found that friendliness and a sense of humour are extremely important to catch students' attention, regardless of their age and ability. I always teach with the help of images, videos, and pictures because visual memories are 100 times better than verbal. Of course, it is also essential to differentiate different pupils' abilities and progress, and to teach accordingly. I believe there is no one-size-fits-all in education.
