ventures into young children after-school education. We started from our home where children were taught English and Chinese language. We aim to enrich children’s after formal school time. Today, we have conduct our programmes in Familienzentrum Karussell, Baden. Apart from language programmes, Acorn Valley is developing more life skills oriented and mind enriching programmes for children. Stay tuned!
Christina started a home-school in January 2012, and provided Chinese and English enrichment lesson to children aged 4 to 8. This has helped her develop the Flexi FlashTM hands-on learning method and gained extensive experience in engaging with children.
She earned her Master of Arts (MA) in Childhood and Youth from The Open University, United Kingdom in August 2013. Today, she has extended her children’s learning centre to Baden, and established Acorn Valley, an after school enrichment programmes provider.
She believes that children are teachable, impressionable and always eager to learn. The duty of parents and educators is to provide an encouraging environment. As an educator, researcher, curriculum developer and entrepreneur, she is committed to enrich children through character development, values education, language and life skills, found beyond the walls of formal education.
In 2010, Christina was awarded the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate by the International TEFL Teacher Training (ITTT). Besides that, she is also a Practitioner of Neuro-Semantics, certified by The International Society of Neuro-Semantics (ISNS).
Christina graduated from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University in Electrical Engineering in 2003, sponsored by the university’s scholarship. Upon graduation, she practised as an engineer for four years in Malaysia and Switzerland.
