_MG_2345-2IMG_6487loosee-polaroid-ni-haoNi hao! I am Loo See Wong, the founder and owner of KaiXin Chinese Learning Hub. I am a mother of two and like most parents, I believe our Children’s education and safety are of utmost importance.

My passion for getting involved in Children’s Chinese education was rekindled after seeing how my Children struggled with learning Mandarin. Over the past 8 years, I have conducted a vast amount of research regarding Children’s learning abilities, how to optimise their learning and how to motivate them to embrace another language. With numerous observations on how children respond to our program, I have designed and developed over 30 Children books and CDs and continue to develop and drive these teaching tools to ensure its effectiveness.

I am of a Chinese ancestry, raised in Malaysia and can speak 5 languages. I completed my Bachelor of Information Technology at University of Christchurch, New Zealand and a Leadership program at University of Michigan. I reside in Australia for over 20 years now. My years in heading up Asia-Pacific operations in Human Resources and Business Operations in one of the top IT international companies, have given me invaluable experiences which I apply, develop and deploy efficient operations in KaiXin Chinese Learning Hub in Melbourne.
