I was born in Gansu, which is the northwest of China, and got my undergraduate of teaching Chinese as a Foreign language in 2006.  

I have been working as a Chinese language teacher for 15 years. In my leisure time, I enjoy painting and photography. I am also crazy about coffee and enjoy making latte art.  

My way of teaching always focuses on my students, which means I will design teaching courses according to the characteristics of different students. I also like using various tools such as music, short movie, or cartoon to make my lessons engaging.
