I joined The British School of Beijing, Sanlitun in August 2010 and have been teaching Mandarin Chinese for native and non-native Chinese speakers. My students range from Early Years to Year 6. I graduated from Beijing Language and Cultural University and I have a degree in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language.
Before joining BSB Sanlitun, I had six years teaching experience in international schools and local schools. I love working with children and believe that every child is unique. I am passionate about using different learning strategies so that every child enjoys learning how to speak Chinese and is able to experience Chinese culture to the best of their abilities.
In my spare time I enjoy watching films, reading books, cooking and travelling. I am enjoying living with my husband and daughter in Beijing.
