My name is Najia Li ,from Beijing China. I speak mandarin Chinese and am fluent in Chinese pinyin. I have been teaching Chinese at three different Chinese schools in the U.S.A. My teaching methods are very flexible. My students enjoy the way I expand their interest in learning Chinese. I have a love for music, and enjoy playing and teaching the drums and YangQin, which is a special Chinese instrument that has 144 strings.  I also am a tournament ping pong player, so I can coach students in the Chinese way of ping pong. I want to have a good relationship with my all students, I can help them to be a useful talent and have a colorful life.

Children’s Pre-K

Alice Lei

Hi everyone,

My name is Alice Lei. My family came from China three years ago. I
have a son who is six years old just like the age of the kids in my

Before arriving in US, I worked in a law office after I graduated from
University of International Business and Economics as a Juris Master.
The job was helping companies and individual to deal with their
intellectual property.

Until now I have worked in Clearwater Chinese School for more than
two years. Compared with the former job, I like this one much better. I
feel very comfortable to stay with kids. They are friendly and generous
always making me feel confident and happy.
I am so pleased to see people are interested in China and Chinese
culture and I am also honored to have this opportunity to be a Chinese
teacher. I really see the job as a bridge which could connect the
people of two country closer.
