Teaching Preference







I have broad experience in teaching international students of different levels in many different courses. These experiences have given me the ability to meet different challenges in complicated situations. My most recent position is with a joint-venture school as a teacher. My responsibilities include teaching course management and overseeing both the foreign and Chinese teaching staff. Beside these day to day responsibilities, I also do occasional interpreting work. Furthermore, I’ve gotten much experience from several part-time positions that I’ve held since graduation. I have worked for several foreign companies, including SHELL. I am able to multi-task and can contribute my experience beyond your expectation.

Ms Wu xiaoyan has been a great Mandarin tutor for my 11-year-old son, Alvin. Alvin finds her lessons very interesting and interactive. In addition to effectively reinforcing the materials covered in Alvin’s school curriculum, Wu provides my son with many other fun and stimulating activities which tremendously enhances Alvin’s overall knowledge and interest in Mandarin.
