Chinese Language and Culture Courses
on Auckland's North Shore

A local family business with international expertise

Dr Xiaoying Xu has over 20 years experience as a professional Chinese language teacher. Before moving to New Zealand in 2014, she was an Associate Professor and Head of Chinese Language Teaching at one of China's top universities.

Xiaoying specialises in tailoring lessons to suit your personal needs. Whatever your background, purposes, goals, learning style and timeframe, Xiaoying will design your course, with individualised lessons, just for you.

Complete beginners right through to those wishing to polish up on their fluency are welcome. As are primary-aged children to seniors. Short term or long term study, the choice is yours.

Lessons are held in a private, quiet classroom set up in our family home, to keep our costs, and your fees, down.

Critical Thinking Lessons for Children

Studies show that children who do Critical Thinking / Philosophy courses also make significant gains in both maths and reading.

If that is not a good enough reason, it's also lots of fun!

Xiaoying's husband, Glenn (who is a fulltime stay-at-home homeschooling dad with 15 years of university life under his belt), also teaches Critical Thinking / Philosophy to children. See our "About Us" section for a few more words on this.

We are conveniently located seconds from the Northcote Rd motorway offramp, next to Takapuna Normal Intermediate School and opposite Smales Farm.
