Chinese Language Tutor
Experienced Chinese Tutor
For a subject as daunting as Chinese, i create an approach which is aimed at creating a cordial relationship with my students. Where i and my students can have a good and efficient dialogue both about the lectures and life in general.
This gradually builds confidence in the subject and expressing themselves.
My name is Chimamaka. I am a graduate of French and international relations from Babcock University. My interest in learning and seeing other people do the same, has inspired me in the direction of tutoring.
I have a 3 years working experience as a full time teacher, in subjects such as French, History and most recently Mandarin. I have equally had private tutoring sessions for younger children and adults in French, Spanish and Mandarin.
As a writer, through my creative writing skills, i have helped students and pupils alike, harness their inner ability to write and express themselves.
My greatest asset is my sharp ability to learn languages and in the same vein teach my students to do same.

As an assistant class teacher, I taught pupils subjects such as general knowledge, history and geography. I was equally involved in the day to day organisation of the classroom. Also, as an assistant French teacher, I worked hand in hand with the head of the language department to ensure that the French language was well taught and spoken through out the school. I was equally a member of the language club, where we learnt languages such as Spanish and Mandarin.

Whitegrove British International school
Here at Whitegrove, I am the the class teacher for primary 3 where I oversee the day to day organisation of the classroom. As the language teacher of the school, I teach the French language across the school, from nursery school to the upper primary. I ensure that the school has a feel of the French language by speaking to my colleagues and pupils in the language also. I equally organise extra curricular activities that make language learning fun for my pupils. I take creative writing from the lower primary to the upper primary. In doing this, I help children express themselves in words and in following the rules, I equally prepare them for external exams. Due to my academic background, history is one of the subjects that come easy to me, and I make learning it fun for the children.
