YoYo’s long and rich experience in teaching Chinese to non-Chinese- speaking students, and her talent in creative writing, make her:

1. An Outstanding Teacher of Chinese Character:
YoYo is a specialist in teaching non-Chinese-students. She always let them discover the very colourful nature of the Chinese character, thus building up their desire to study the language. Her teaching is never boring. Her classroom is always full of laughs and excitement. All her students systematically use one word to characterize her teaching: “ENJOYMENT!”

2. An Outstanding Teacher of Chinese Grammar:
YoYo has a special talent to explain the grammar of the Chinese language that is normally rather difficult for non-Chinese speakers. She can, very quickly, let her students understand and remember the rules of the Chinese language. In this way, they can learn how to build their sentences and use them easily and well.

3. An Excellent Developer of a Personal Teaching Plan:
Based on her rich experiences in teaching students on all ages, from 7 to 70 years old, YoYo can find different and suitable teaching-plan for every student based on her/his own knowledge and needs.

4. The Best Tutor for Passing Exams:
YoYo has been working for a long time in one of the best schools in the world, Eton College in Windsor, therefore, she has the best knowledge of examinations at all levels. She is especially helpful for those facing GCSE, AS and A-level examins. All her students at Eton College received A or A* when they took those examinations.

5. An Outstanding Teacher and Consultant of Cultural and Literary Studies:
As a well-known Chinese writer, together with her husband Yang Lian, an internationally renowned Chinese poet, YoYo has an excellent understanding of Chinese geography, history, culture, politics and literature. She also has very wide contacts among Chinese writers, artists and intellectuals. She can be an exceptional teacher in those fields, as well as the perfect consultant for your business in those areas.
