About Me

Hello, I’m Yuanyuan, an experienced Chinese teacher with CTCSOL (Han Ban) and ICA qualifications. I’ve studied and worked in the UK for 5 years. My Chinese teaching started then in a Chinese community. 

I now live in my hometown Dalian, a coastal city in China. It’s small in size but very cosy and accommodates multi-culture. I’ve been working in an international G500 company for 12 years. I can speak English, Japanese, and basic Korean. My language skills enable me to exchange culture with friends from all over the world.

For learners with different levels, I’ll always prepare a tailor-made syllabus to cater for various needs and improve their speaking, accent, comprehension etc. 

I like travelling and cooking. I’ll take you to experience loads of fun activities, such as the Chinese Tea ceremony, calligraphy, needlecraft, Chinese therapy and cooking. You’ll have a better understanding of Chinese culture and have a wonderful stay with my family.
