It’s been 14 years since I first set my luggage down in Dubai and I am so incredibly happy to be starting a new segment of this journey at Safa Community school. I have taught for the past 11 years in Dubai and yet, I am thrilled by the prospect of meeting students from such a wide array of nationalities. I come from the beautiful island of Mauritius where I have learned Mandarin since primary school. Awarded a scholarship after high school, i was able to pursue my passion of Chinese language and culture in Beijing and becoming a teacher was the natural course of thing as I can share not only my linguistic knowledge but also my enthusiasm of Chinese culture to all.

About Me

During my free time, I enjoy working out, swimming and practicing mountain climbing. I also enjoy visiting the cultural places in other emirates of the UAE.
At the week end, i particularly enjoy going to the Umm Al Quwain Dog shelter to volunteer walking the dogs and watching the sunset in the desert. As indoor activities, i often go to the newly opened malls or latest cafes in town as I am very fond of date pastries and chocolate.

My Experience

I’ve been trained to teach Mandarin through Primary to Secondary in various curricula. In 2000, I graduated from Beijing Language and Culture University. In 2013, working full time in Dubai, I completed my Master in Education from Murdoch University. In 2016, I was awarded a scholarship for HSK training for foreign language teachers in Beijing Language and Culture University. I am used to teaching to a diversity of international students and I believe in urging students to find their own path. This fosters self-confidence in my students. Learning Chinese requires assiduity but it is so satisfying for both learners and teachers when students become more self-aware of their potential and move to the next level more independently.
