My name is Claire. I’m from Scotland in the UK and I am an English teacher.
I spent my last 15 months in Tianjin, in the north of China, where I taught English. My students ranged from only 3 years old to around 15 years old. Classes ranged from usually 12 to 16 students, but I also had the opportunity to tutor one-on-one with VIP clients. I loved living in China because I got to experience a completely different culture and I also managed to learn some Chinese.
My other teaching experience is in music and includes tutoring students towards taking high school exams, as well as more casual individual lessons for violin and flute. In this capacity I taught all ages, from as young as 5 to adults who were looking to improve their skill.
In terms of education, I have a Bachelor’s in English which allowed me to study a lot of poetry and literature and really concentrate on learning about the English language. I then went on to complete a Master’s in Publishing, focussing on designing books, as well as working with editing and copywriting for magazines.
I love to travel which is why, I suppose, I love teaching so much. To me, life is all about experiencing as much as possible. Learning about new cultures and ways of life and connecting with people. I play music, which is another great way to share understanding between people.
Apart from this I love to read and I enjoy keeping active with swimming, yoga and running.
