Native English speaker - Canadian - Conversation - Idioms/Colloquial/Slang
I have a quite a few Chinese-speaking connections who I've helped with their English, and they've helped me to improve my Mandarin Chinese (I've been studying Chinese for roughly five years). Recently I had a friend who requested that I tutor her. The tutoring involved helping her correct her College paper for an Arts class, as well as with conversational Chinese, including idioms and slang.
In secondary school (high school) English class, my strong points were spelling and grammar, so I'm very happy to help others improve in these areas. I also continued my study in college when I took a Communications course, learning how to take my writing to a new level in business Communications.
Most recently I took an online Tesols class, in which I achieved a 90-percentile grade.
Experience: 2 years
I use idioms and slang frequently in my everyday conversation, and I'm happy and eager to help others learn these facets of the English language in conversation. I feel it adds colour to everyday speech.
