Sophie has been a member of the NAIS Pudong for 11 years and has worked initially as the Head of Mandarin in Early Years. Since moving into the Primary Mandarin team she has been teaching and developing the Native program from Years 1 to 6. Sophie studied in Shanghai to attain her Bachelor’s Degree in English and also graduated from the Shanghai Teachers University, whilst also achieving her CET level 6. Throughout her time at NAIS Sophie has been part of the teacher training that we run for all the staff, this has enabled her to develop her style of teaching and confidence. Sophie is very excited to work with older children as this has given her the opportunity to challenge her students to develop their understanding of the Chinese language.
In her spare time, Sophie enjoys reading history books, Chinese poetry and discovering other literacy forms. She also loves her pets and taking care of them.
