About Me

Hello! I am a law graduate from East China Normal University and a certified psychological counsellor. For nearly three decades, I have been a dedicated primary school teacher in Shanghai, teaching a range of subjects including Chinese, math, English, and art. My commitment to education has earned me the affection and respect of both my students and their parents.


Beyond Shanghai, I have had the privilege of teaching Chinese language courses in Australia. These courses encompass daily Chinese conversations, business Chinese, and preparation for the HSK exam. My teaching philosophy is rooted in patience, reliability, and understanding. I take great joy in teaching foreign learners, guiding them towards a strong language foundation and instilling in them effective learning habits.


I reside in Shanghai with my beloved husband. We often travel to Australia to visit our daughter, who is pursuing her studies there. In my leisure time, I have a penchant for sports, travel, cooking, and reading. Volunteering holds a special place in my heart. Over the years, I have organised numerous volunteer events and remain committed to giving back to the community. I eagerly await the opportunity to welcome you to Shanghai.
