About Shahmir AliHi! My name is Shahmir, and I'm currently studying in Brisbane Australia. My goal for every student is to cater each and every lesson directly to their needs. Whether it be for business reasons, or just for fun, I understand why people learn English, and look forward to bringing your English to new levels! I can teach any subject that an individual may need to work on, whether it be grammar, pronunciation, writing, or reading. I've also posted an English teaching application video I made some time ago, so you can have a quick look at my teaching :). Boring textbooks full of 5 page long grammar rules won't do much, I know, and so that is why my approach to teaching is making each and every lesson interactive, individualized, and most importantly, fun!! :). Also, because I am at a fluent level with Chinese and have won many honors including gold place at the Queensland Chinese Speaking Competition, I would be more than happy to offer 1 on 1 basic and intermediate Chinese classes for Chinese learners. Unlike most other teachers, I offer a learner's perspective because I know what every Chinese learner has gone through, and know very helpful tips and tricks to bring your Chinese not only to an advanced level, but a fluent one. 我很高兴认识你们！
