Who am I?
My name is Katie, and I’ll be the lead tutor for this course.
For the past two years, I co-founded and have been the Education Director of an online ESL start-up based in mainland China. In this role, I have cooperated very closely with my Chinese colleagues, gaining a unique insight into the ESL industry in China and learning which marketing techniques actually work.
I am also a qualified teacher with experience teaching in the UK, Japan and China, as well as teaching online (both independently and with various platforms) since 2013. I also lived and studied in China previously and speak a high level of Mandarin.
