I help global organizations and individuals meet their personal and business goals through intercultural competence between the Chinese-speaking world and the United States. I have designed, developed and delivered numerous soft-skill training programs in English and in Chinese and am a highly sought-after speaker on topics relating to cross-cultural communication and technology transfers.
I have also assisted several Michigan-based translation and language training firms and schools in designing and delivering Chinese/English language training programs for corporate customers as well as for students of all ages.
I rely on a student-centered approach to teaching the Chinese language, meaning that I customize the curriculum based on a thorough needs assessment of the target audience. I truly believe that language learning must go hand-in-hand with CQ (Cultural intelligence) acquisition so that individual words, phrases, sentences and dialogs I teach and the students learn are always contextual, functional, meaningful, relevant and entertaining.
Although my academic degrees are in literature (BA, Shanghai Int'l Studies Univ) and communication (MA, Michigan State Univ.), I have a teaching certification, Diploma-in-Education, from the University of Singapore, widely recognized in English-speaking Commonwealth nations. I have 15 years of experience teaching Chinese, Chinese Culture and Cross-cultural communication programs. My clients are Chrysler, GM, HP and Reuters, among others.
