Self Introducion

My name is James, and I have completed a BA in linguistics at The university of York, U.K., which also included a year at The university of Hong Kong. During this time, I studied all the core subjects of linguistics, as well as Japanese and Cantonese. My work in language acquisition required me to collect and transcribe my own child language samples, and also work with data from CHILDES. 

My work experience includes many years working in my local library in the UK, and teaching English at tutorial centres and schools in Hong Kong, for which I have developed my own materials. Previous students have given me some very good feedback on my challenging and effective teaching methods and my ability to explain the material. Furthermore, I was a teaching assistant at The Chinese university of Hong Kong for a short time as part of a PhD programme there.

Language and linguistics is a passion of mine, and I enjoy teaching and discussing related issues with children and adults. I am very professional, but also friendly and approachable. My advanced studies in linguistics, and my focus on syntax and phonetics, in particular, means I can explain the details of English in a detailed and fun way. 

As well as studying language, I also enjoy going to the cinema and playing games. I particularly enjoy local Hong Kong films, which I have been a fan of for many years.
