Jenny Chen

Executive Director

Jenny (Chen Lao shi) is a native Mandarin speaker who earned her undergraduate degrees in Business Administration in Missouri and Management Information System in Wisconsin. However, because of her continuous passion in working with second language learners since college and growing up in a bilingual environment, she later pursued a master’s degree in education with special focus in language studies. Over ten years of teaching experience, she has always enjoyed using various teaching methods and finding creative ways to work with children and adults at different language levels.

Chen Lao shi believes that learning Chinese should be fun – and this is evident in her unique and highly interactive teaching style. She uses songs, games, crafts and conversations relevant to her students’ daily lives to motivate and challenge her students to listen, read, speak and write Chinese.
