Self Introduction

Hello, how are you ?

If you are looking for a professional who is dedicated to helping your child achieve academic goals, then please let me share with you my passion for languages.

I enjoy teaching international English (not Singlish) and French (A grades in GCE exams). I also love Mandarin, which is my mother tongue (B grade).

I will be happy to share some tips on how to improve competence in any language :

1. Cultivate a love of reading. Select an appropriate balance of pictures and text. It is also a fun way of bonding with your child !

2. Read extensively. For older students, international newspapers or articles make interesting topics for discussion. People usually enjoy chatting with someone who has some interesting knowledge to share.

3. Practise speaking fluently on a regular basis. Listen and learn from international news reporting on BBC, CNN, CCTV News, Channel News Asia and the like.

4. Always try to speak in complete sentences with good grammar. When you inculcate good speaking habits, you will tend to write in the same manner.

5. Practise with someone who also tries to do all of the above !

I tutored locally some years ago. After which, I lived and worked overseas for many years. In 2014, I resumed taking on English tuition assignments. I enjoy interacting with my students and when I can play a small part in helping them achieve academic success - it can be very rewarding !

English and Mandarin may be challenging for some - but just like any other skill, Rome was not built in a day". If a student is prepared to work diligently, investment in language competence is worthwhile. After all, effective communication with the rest of the world; is a skill for life. :)

I hope that we can meet soon ?
diana dee :)

P.S. - I will be happy to present my credentials at the first lesson.
- My rates can be negotiated, depending on the number of tutoring hours (per week) you can commit. Thank you ! :)
