About Shirley

Teaching Chinese is my life-long dream. In my mind, the ultimate charm of teaching Mandarin is to introduce China and Chinese language to people from different nations, and of various cultures and language backgrounds. Moreover, to help such people master and use Mandarin is also one of the most important responsibilities of being a Mandarin teacher. All students I have met are coming from every corner of the world whose ages, occupations and the purposes of learning differ. Therefore, I tailor each course accordingly with appropriate methods to help them reach the goals they expect. My strength lays in daily conversation related courses. Also, I possess rich experiences in helping students who are totally new to Mandarin study. My greatest happiness and proud is to witness my students using Mandarin to communicate with local people after they studied for a few period of time.

I am a certificated IPA Mandarin Teacher, I can also speak fluently Cantonese, Sichuan Dialect. I am a MBA graduated from Open University Hong Kong and have 23 years' experience worked for multinational company as an excetutive develop business in Asia and China market. I am semi-retired and spend most of time for teaching and consultant. I have a solid yet precise knowledge system, and is able to apply different teaching methodologies to each single student. With my liveliness and expertise in communication, most students have enjoyed my courses and made rapid progress under my guidance.

Comments from students: "Shirley is very good teacher. She can easily adapt teaching speed and level to the level of the student. She is very patient, regularly repeats material from previous lessons. She balances amount of grammar with new vocabulary in proper way. Her English is also on very good level which helps to discuss and understand even sophisticated subjects in Chinese. I strongly recommend her as Chinese teacher."
