About Me

I’m a retired English teacher who used to teach at a secondary school in Shanghai for over 20 years. I have more than 30 years of teaching experience. Most of my students have achieved academic excellence in English. I had opportunities to teach foreign students while was working at one of the key schools and gained a lot of experience dealing with them. I can communicate with foreign learners in English and Chinese. I have vast interests and hobbies. I love sports and have good knowledge of Chinese history, culture and traditions.
