您好！My name is Wenhui Zhong, and I am a primary Mandarin First Language teacher. I come from Guangdong, China, a place with a multi-dialect environment that illuminates my love for language. I hold a bachelor degree in philosophy as well as a master degree in education from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, and also hold a bachelor degree in Chinese linguistic and literature from Central China Normal University. With passion in education and Chinese linguistic, I gained both the National Teacher Qualification Certificate of Chinese For Senior High School (and below) in China and Certificate for Teachers of Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages. Prior to my move to HeadStart, I have taught Mandarin to students in Bangkok and Phuket for 6 years including 5 years experience in teaching native Chinese speakers from 5 to 11 years old. In the classroom I believe that learning Chinese is more than just mastering a language, but also gaining the key to understanding a culture and value, and establishing a system model that can bring meaning to life. I am also keen to help native Chinese learners find their cultural roots and identity in language learning. My well planned and creative teachings combined with games, handcraft, calligraphy, and other Chinese culture elements are always attractive to my students. In my free time, I enjoy calligraphy and exploring different languages, exploring the world of children's books as well as playing with my child.
