I began my teaching career in 2009 one year after completion of my major in English Language Teaching in Primary Education and degree in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language from Beijing Language and Culture University. I enjoy helping young learners to aid in their development and increase their confidence in learning. I like adapting and bringing EAL teaching methodologies into my Chinese classroom. In 2013 I obtained my CELTA teaching qualification from University of Cambridge ESOL and then Certificate of Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language from BLCU.
I started working for BSB Sanlitun from March 2015. Prior to this I worked for another international school in Beijing as a Chinese teacher. In addition to primary Chinese teaching commitments I also taught Chinese to school expat staff at higher levels of competence during that time. I feel very lucky to be a part of BSB Sanlitun, I enjoy everyday here working with young children and colleagues.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy travelling to different places with my family, exploring China on road trips. China is such a big country with fascinating places and various languages. Dialects from different provinces are one of the beauties. You could feel that you are in a completely different country after driving a whole day. As a language teacher I find myself enjoying the experience trying to communicate with locals by hearing a different language that I don’t know. It also helps me to feel how my Chinese students would feel in my class so that I can better help them.
