Brisbane Tutor in English, English Literature, ESL, Essay Writing, IELTS, Mandarin, Reading

1. I'm a PhD student in English Literature at the University of Queensland. I am quite experienced in tutoring critical thinking, essay writing, reading or contemporary British and American literature, minority literature, women's writings etc. 2. Tutoring is an enjoyable experience for me because I not only help my students but also improve myself too. It's exciting to see my students grasp the ideas and to challenge or argue with them in order to form their own independent thoughts. This is what I find most useful in acquiring, remembering and creating knowledge. 3. I am a happy person with positive thoughts, so I usually form very good relationships with my students. 4. My time is quite flexible and negotiable. 5. I can also tutor Chinese Mandarin and literature and philosophy.
