About Yuan

As a native Chinese-speaking teacher with both BA and MA in Chinese Language and Literature, I have a 12-year worth of experience teaching the Chinese language arts. Most of that time was spent in a famous co-educational high school in Beijing. My excellent teaching skills, remarkable achievements and attractive personality have been well appreciated by students, parents and colleagues.

After being selected by both the Department of Chinese Education and Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs for this highly competitive position, I was designated to work in the Sunshine School affiliated to the Embassy of China in the US located in Washington, DC during the 2009 – 2010 school year. As the Education Director and professional Mandarin teacher in the school, I was involved in diverse tasks including constructing the curriculum, training other teachers and teaching language. My outstanding performance and constructive contribution to the Sunshine school won many compliments and high evaluations from two Ambassadors.

Due to relocation, I moved to and settled down in the US IN 2012. And I'm currently teaching at Sidwell Friends School located in Washington D.C. I would like to take this opportunity to carry on my responsibility, passion, high quality teaching technique for you by making a satisfying contribution in your comprehensive achievement related to the study of Chinese language (Mandarin).

I would definitely recommend Yuan. — I was very impressed with Yuan's preparation, lesson plan and teaching style. She makes the learning process fun and interesting by using idioms to illustrate the meanings of words. As a writer, I thought this was a very clever way to learn a new language. Yuan is an experienced teacher who has clearly mastered the craft of being able to teach her students/clients Chinese. I highly recommend Yuan ...
