I graduated with honours from Keele university in 1999; majoring in International Relations with a strong focus on Sinology. After university I qualified as a life and pensions advisor before studying for my teaching certification. I have been teaching since 2002 in a variety of roles. Most of my career has been teaching Chinese students looking to study abroad. I studied Chinese formally at Hainan University and Yunnan Nationalities University between 2007-2008.
My teaching style is fun and friendly and I try to help students have the confidence to learn by themselves.
