Meet our Teachers!
At YouLe, we firmly believe that without the best chefs, the best recipe will not be able to translate into the perfect dish. Besides being subject matter experts, our teachers must most importantly be able to gain the love, respect and trust of the students. Only in this way can the students gain the most out of our innovative pedagogies and learn Chinese effectively and efficiently. As such, we have stringent demands on our teachers and are prepared to break the bank to attract the best in the industry.
