Teaching experience

Before establishing MoTai Mandarin, Isabella taught Mandarin to all student levels, from children (and other ages at the Cherrybrook Chinese Community Association Chinese School), to secondary school students (in Bangkok, Thailand); to university students studying in China, and has tutored staff from SAMSUNG to help broaden their understanding of Chinese. She has also worked as a tutor for the HSK Exam (Chinese Proficiency Test).

Isabella taught Mandarin Chinese to foreign students at numerous distinguished universities, including: Nanjing University of Science & Technology, Nanjing University of Information Science & Technology, and Xi'an International Studies University; and was responsible for teaching Chinese to groups of exchange students from the American Education Council and German Government.

The results of Isabella's teaching extends to a national outreach with her students now working in various industries in Australia, from Healthcare, Financial Services, Real Estate, Media Arts, Fashion, IT to Entertainment who are the executives and employees of some of the large corporate and global companies. Isabella has a professional, highly-developed and well-structured Mandarin course that complements her teaching styles effectively. Isabella can also custom her teaching, tailoring to her students needs in order to meet general, business or cultural specific purposes.
