Chinese teaching background and experience

Time flies; I have been teaching Chinese for over 10 years in the UK. My students are my favourite thing about teaching, and I am proud of their achievements. I have worked at the BCI before (so glad I am back!) and I have also worked for other educational institutions. Besides teaching, I am also a Chinese business consultant. I love what I do. Some people say “Do what you love; you’ll be better at it” and I couldn’t agree more.
