Hi Everyone, this is Jen. I am a radio journalist and language teacher based in Melbourne, Australia. I have a bachelor degree in Communication majored in English literature and Journalism as well as an Advanced Diploma in Translation (English -- Chinese Mandarin). Originally from Beijing China, I have gained extensive experience in teaching Chinese Mandarin to Australians in universities, primary schools, kindergartens and various language institutions over the past 8 years. My students have included working professionals like bankers and lawyers, teenagers aged 13-17, children aged 3-12, university students as well as Australian diplomats working in China. My lessons are highly effective consisting of a mix of daily conversation, grammatical points as well as a heavy focus on commonly-used sentence patterns, rather than just stand-alone bits and pieces, so that students can pick up the language in no time and be able to communicate from day one. I also have Working with Children Check issued by the Australian government so parents can rest assured that quality lessons are provided with any necessary tailoring to meet young learners' needs. A lot of my students have achieved very high marks in HSK exams, some have even been awarded Australian National Scholarships to study in China as well as the highly coveted prizes in the HanYuQiao Competition (Chinese Bridge Competition) hosted by Hanban Confucius Centre. If they can do it , you can too! Chinese is not as hard as you think, you just need to find the right teacher and keep at it:) What I find most rewarding is that I can combine my passion for teaching and languages on this platform and I am looking forward to meeting and learning with all of you. 大家好，我是Jen。 我来自北京, 现在住在澳大利亚墨尔本，是一名广播记者和中英文老师。 我有6年在大学以及语言培训机构教授中文与英文的经验, 我的很多中文学生都在汉语水平考试中取得了优异的成绩，并且在汉语桥比赛中获奖甚至拿到澳大利亚政府资助的去中国学习的奖学金。 自17岁住在澳洲以来，我说着流利地道的英文，一直帮助中国的朋友们学习英文。无论你想要强化英文的语法或者是准备各种出国英语考试，我都可以帮你找到最适合你的学习方法，早日取得理想的成绩。 很期待见到你们与你们一起学习中文与英文!
