I am Cathy, I am an outgoing and a warm-hearted girl who has been staying in Yangshuo for more than 8 years. In 2008 I came to Zhuoyue to learn English. After that Yangshuo was always on my mind, so in 2014 I decided to work in Zhuoyue. I think Zhuoyue is like a big family because the teachers here are so friendly and colleagues are helping each other. I can’t stop learning English here because of the “English only” rule we have here in Zhuoyue, it keep me speaking English every day. And the most interesting part here is that I can meet many people from all around the world, I often share ideas about education with them, and it inspired me motivates me to take education as my career, This is how english changed me and I am sure it will change you too. If you want to experience a different lifestyle then come to Zhuoyue, I will always be here waiting for you!
Hi, everyone. I am Angie, nice to meet you. My job is to serve students and manage students,and I love it so much. I graduated from Guangxi University with English Education as my major, and through my effort I have passed CET during my time in university. It has been almost 10 years since I came to Zhuoyue in 2007. It is a long time, but I learnt a lot and got a lot from ZhuoYue. I have witnessed the growth and development of ZhuoYue and ZhuoYue has seen my growth as well, which trained my will, casted my perseverance and improved me a lot. I am enthusiastic,funny,hardworking, responsible and serious. As for students, I am both serious and kind to them, aiming for good achievement for students, which is also my goal for working and my greatest achievement. I stay here because of yangshuo's beauty and unique features; I believe that would be the reason why you should come to ZhuoYue to study English.
I am from London in the UK and I have been teaching English as a foreign language since 2010. I have a CELTA qualification for teaching English as a foreign language. My teaching style focuses on practical modern English that students will find useful in everyday situations. I give my students plenty of opportunity to practice their oral English in my classes. If my students want to study a specific area of English I am happy to prepare lessons on any subject, including business English, fomal and informal styles.
I come from Canada and graduated from Laval University in Philosophy and Literature. I have a deep interest in all of the world's cultures and languages. As such, I have now traveled in more than 30 countries and speak 5 languages. I take my mission teaching in Zhuoyue really seriously. Chinese cultures are dear to me and it's a constant pleasure to share experiences with the people that populate this country. For me, teaching is first about transmitting passion to the students. More than grammar and vocabulary, I hope to give my students the passion for learning, which will drive them to constantly improve themselves. I believe languages classes are more than only learning about a language, they are also about opening oneself to another culture and another way of thinking. As such, I prioritize discussions and debates as ways to strengthen a student's English.
My name is Glenda and I'm from the Philippines-a country with 7,100 islands! My Chinese name is Gao Lan. I told myself that if Chinese people are not nice to me, then I will go back home...Eventually, I stayed in China for 5 years without going home to the Philippines! I consider China as my second home. I feel lucky here. I have a lot of wonderful experiences that I will treasure for the rest of my life.Zhuo Yue is my fourth school but before Zhuo Yue,I was teaching in Ningxia province,in Inner Mongolia and now in Yangshuo. This place is amazing! I am thankful to Johnson for giving me a chance to teach in his school. The faculty members are great and the Chinese staff are very helpful.I hope I could stay longer here.so, to our dear students, please don't hesitate to approach me if you need somebody to talk to. I'm a good listener! I can be your friend too!
Hello my name is Shaun and I am a native English teacher from England. I enjoy travelling and have spent the last 6 years travelling around the world exploring and learning about new cultures. I really enjoy teaching because everyday is different and it's so rewarding watching a person grow under the right encouragement and direction. It's also very interesting because we get to share information about each other's cultures and ultimately have fun while learning. I am a relatively new teacher but fiercely enjoy a daily challenge and believe your language problems are mine! I look forward to teaching you.
My name is Marek Soukal, and I come from the Czech Republic where I initiated my studies with a Masters Program - Pedagogy of linguistics and literature, afterwards continued with business in New York, but later on transitioned to UCLA and University of Santa Monica as a Biology and Linguistics major in Los Angeles. During my studies, I worked as a language tutor, athletics instructor, event manager, and program coordinator both in Europe and the United States. After graduation, I immediately started teaching Anatomy and its implications in health care facilities. Teaching in Los Angeles was a great experience for its cultural diversity of my students. In order to expand my knowledge as a teacher I wanted a new challenge. I have always been greatly interested in linguistics, therefore coming to teach to Yang Shuo was a perfect fusion of work, learning new language, and experiencing one of the most ancient cultures in the World.
Hi, my name is Nathan and I am a native English teacher from the United States. I have an extensive background in tutoring and one on one teaching in subjects like English and math as an elementary and middle school tutor. Later, as an equipment supervisor in the movie industry I gained multiple necessary skills that enhanced my teaching methods with students of diverse backgrounds.. I would say I have always had a passion for teaching, and with the diverse student body of Zhuoyue and the training I have received from the staff and other experienced teachers, I have been able to make the best of a job that I love.
Hi, my name is John, and I come from the beautiful city of Barcelona. I am an experienced certified TESOL teacher and have enjoyed teaching English in China to a variety of students for a good 8 years. As a learner myself (I have been self-studying Chinese for 14 years), I relate to many of the difficulties that my students face (seemingly unreasonable grammatical rules, pronunciation problems, thinking patterns, vocabulary acquisition, etc) and this helps me to put myself in their shoes. I strive to go beyond the traditional grammar-oriented teaching methods, and to provide students with plenty of opportunities to express themselves freely. I also like to provide natural, useful expressions not easily found in traditional English courses, as well as help them with pronunciation issues and understand and use connective speech correctly.
I'm Ruaraidh Chase. I'm from the South coast of England. I first came to China in February last year to study Kung Fu in a village not far from here. As a result, having not really know what Yangshuo was like before, I discovered it. After 4 months, I left and went to Mexico and saw something very different. Whilst I was traveling last year, I couldn't help but think of Yangshuo.
I had the mountains in my mind, so I travelled back in the May of this Year and have been working here at Zhouyue ever since. I love the lifestyle that's available here and the scenery is just stunning.

During this period, my experience working for Zhuoyue totally makes me a new man. Meanwhile, I turn to be much more active, positive, initiative, dynamic and optimistic than before. I feel really delighted about what becomes of me. In the holly place watered by our sweat, I have been trained to be a qualified and experienced teacher from being a green hand. I’ve learned teaching is not just about teaching but also a kind of interaction; teaching is not to control but to guide and interest; teaching is not to cram up but to engage. You’ll be profound here! Welcome to join our zhuoyue family.
