Eileen Gu

Eileen Gu

Teaching Assistant

I graduated with a BA in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language at Guangxi Normal University.  I completed a 2 months internship at the College of Foreign Languages at Vietnam’s National University in Hanoi and obtained an Outstanding in Chinese Language and Class/Culture Teacher.  I achieved the certificate of Mandarin Proficiency Test for B level of 1st Grade and the English Teaching Qualification Certificate of High School in China. 

After teaching in Beijing for one year I became a self-employed Professional Chinese Language & Culture Instructor for International School Students (BSB, WAB, ISB, Dulwich) and Expatriates (Intel, Nokia, Ericsson, Simens) aged from 3 years old to 81 years old. My students were from different countries all over the world. I spent 2 years as a private tutor for a family in the United States. This gave me first hand experience about how western parents raise their children. After some time, I followed my curiosity and determination about learning from the English National Curriculum and the International Primary Curriculum to be a bridge between different cultures.

I joined BSB in 2014 and I love how BSB encourages independence, exploration and responsibility in its children. Through high quality learning BSB helps each individual child to achieve their full potential and inspires the genius in them.

What people say about Eileen Gu:

"Eileen Gu is hard working, meticulously honest and has a wonderful attitude. She is a phenomenal teacher who has made learning Chinese far more simple than I had imagined."

"Eileen helped me learn Chinese quickly, with a clear teaching style and a fantastic ability to explain the nuances of Chinese grammar."

"I am amazed at the ease with which Eileen motivates my children to speak, read and write in Mandarin."

For me as a language teacher to foreigners, High Quality Learning means teach in a clear manner in the classroom with study aids that put vocabulary into context which helps students to retain and later use the new words in practical situations when they leave the classroom. Also, a teacher must be willing to become proficient at using new technologies that benefit students learning according to the necessity of providing valuable, timely and effective feedback to students about their progress and practical needs.
