About Jia Xin
My name is Jia Xin and I am a recent graduate of Linguistics from the University of Melbourne (2019). I achieved a First Class Honours and was on the Dean's Honours List in 2017, 2018 and 2019. I am currently self-employed as a private EFL/ESL (English as a Foreign/ Second Language) tutor for children at Early Years' and Primary Levels. I specialise in teaching English to Japanese learners, as I have a strong interest in Japanese language, linguistics and culture. I have spent 5+ years studying Japanese Language and Culture and completed JLPT Level N4. I also plan to pursue a Masters of Speech Pathology in the future.
I tailor and adapt my lessons to the needs of my students flexibly and innovatively. This includes designing original resources tailored to your specific language needs if required. For example, I often make original English-Japanese learning resources for my EFL students who are in Early Years’ and Primary Levels as they require interactive and engaging learning.
I believe fun and engaging learning is the most effective way to absorb knowledge, so I strive tailor and design my classes to give you a learning experience that you (and I) look forward to.
I can teach in Mandarin and Japanese. I enjoy working with kids and people of all ages!!
I also bring warmth and friendliness to my classes and see the human in you first, before anything else (:
Hope to see you in class soon!
