Ni 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 language. 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 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.
Ni hao! I am Charles Wong, the manager of KaiXin Chinese Learning Hub. As an Australian-Chinese who has called Australia home since 1 years old, and as a non-native speaker of Mandarin, I understand the struggles that Aussie children can face when learning Mandarin.
I want to help create the Mandarin-learning environment that I wish I could have been a part of when I ran the gauntlet of Saturday Chinese schooling throughout my childhood. After all, no matter how dearly parents might wish their children would learn something… if they are unwilling and unengaged then there’s very little chance that lasting knowledge is gained! My experiences have helped shape our school’s approach on having fun/activity-based lessons which fosters our students’ interest in both the Mandarin language and Chinese culture.
I completed my Bachelors of Commerce and Law at Monash University, Victoria. My years consulting at PricewaterhouseCoopers have given me a broad exposure across a variety of different industries, and my years working in Higher Education at Swinburne University has helped me appreciate the best practices which support running education services – which I bring to Kaixin Chinese Learning Hub.
