Biography
My name is Edes, I have been teaching Mandarin Chinese and English for 5 years. I graduated from the University of Hull in the United Kingdom with the Bachelor degree in Marketing Management.

Work Experience and Area
I am a language enthusiast who cannot pass a day without exploring the world of languages. I can speak fluent Mandarin Chinese, English, Cantonese and Japanese. That is why I want to share my passion with my students. To share the skills of learning a language. My passion led me to study in Beijing Language and Culture University for the certificate of Teaching Chinese as a Second Language and in Beijing Normal University for the certificate of Putonghua Trainer.
I have worked in Hong Kong, Macau and Osaka, with public schools, private schools like Global Citizen and Private companies like Hyatt Regency Hotel. I do online teaching, face to face, 1 on 1 lesson. Also corporate and Intensive training. My students aged from 3 to 90 years old and they learn Chinese for different reasons, from having a hobby to dealing with Chinese customers.

Teaching Styles and Methodology
My lesson contents and plans are always designed to fit the students’ needs. The lessons are all student-centered, and I try my best to cater to students of different levels.
Growing up in a multicultural environment inspired me to be a language enthusiast. Years of language study helped me understand the struggles of students learning a language, and the importance of creating a stress-free learning environment. In my lessons, I always try to create a relaxing and fun environment with my sense of humor and different activities. I found this method very effective because the students always feel very comfortable speaking in my lessons.
In addition, I strongly believe in the practical use of languages. Nothing is more frustrating than learning a language for years, but being incapable of using it in real life. This belief shaped my task based teaching styles. Also, my lesson is conversation based, the main goal of my lessons is to get the student to speak and use the vocabulary they have learned.

Who am I after class
I am a backpacker when I am not on a job. One of my biggest accomplishments was to travel around the world for a year with a tiny budget. And I am proud of myself everyday when I remember the days I spent conquering the Himalayas in Nepal.
