Having retired from banking and finance, I am now a freelance interpreter and translator with a keen interest in teaching and tutoring English as a second/foreign language.
I reside in Sydney, Australia but frequently return to my home in Hong Kong. Hence, I can now tutor students online, and also provide home tutoring during my stay in Hong Kong after the pandemic.
Currently, I can be contacted by 61 413372393 (WhatsApp) and email.
