italki teacher since Jan 19, 2018
I am Chinese Indonesian currently living in Singapore. I work full-time as programme coordinator/administrator in a university and part-time as a violin teacher. After using italki for a year to learn Italian and French, I started to also give lessons in Mandarin, Indonesian, and English. I spoke English in a native-like C2 level as my Bachelor's degree was conducted in English in Singapore.
Parlo l'italiano a livello B2-C1 e ho insegnato il cinese e l'indonesiano da zero ad alcuni studenti italiani qui su italki. Non ci sarà un problema per me spiegare la grammatica di quelle due lingue in italiano.
Me as a Teacher
I have been teaching the violin since July 2010. Although it might not be exactly the same as teaching languages, I believe the skills I gain from this experience is relevant: how to motivate students, how to put myself in their shoes, etc. I myself have taken many lessons in italki (more than 200 with around 30 teachers) so I know how exactly to make online learning less intimidating & enjoyable for students
My lessons & teaching style
For total beginners, I usually use textbooks that are specifically designed for foreign learners, but with me to guide, you need not worry that using the textbook will make you sound too textbook-ish.
For intermediate to advanced level students who prefer to just converse, I have a list of 500+ questions from diverse topics I can use to guide our conversation. We will never run out of things to talk about! :)
IMPORTANT: I will refuse lesson request without any message. Please at least introduce yourself and let me know your expectation.
IMPORTANTE: Rifiuterò la richiesta di lezione se non mi mandate prima un messaggio. Almeno presentatevi e ditemi le vostre aspettativa.
