Jennifer Zuo has been Head of the Chinese Business Department since 2014. With an MBA from the University of Hull and a number of teaching qualifications such as the Specialist Diploma in Applied Learning and Teaching, teaching has always been a passion of Jennifer’s.
Through teaching, Jennifer gains a feeling of accomplishment from not only seeing students grow in knowledge, confidence and skills, but also through learning from her students during lessons. She recognises the role that teachers and school leaders play in shaping and nurturing the aspirations of young people.
In order to discovering students’ individual learning styles, Jennifer uses different teaching methods, not just traditional lectures. She hopes to engage and encourage students to participate in lessons, shifting them from simple memorization to understanding, applying and analysing.
“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn." This quote summarises Jennifer’s teaching inspirations.
