Ms. Yat Wai Gloria Chong grew up in Hong Kong, a biliterate and trilingual city, which naturally gives rise to her profound interest in language education. She thinks that by learning a new language, learners are being exposed to new perspectives and ways of living. So she is excited to be a part of her students’ journey in exploring. Ms. Chong holds a Bachelor of Arts in Teaching Chinese as a Second Language and a Master of Arts in Linguistics and Applied Linguistics from Huazhong University of Science and Technology. Before starting her teaching career in the United States, she also studied and earned a Master of Science in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In her free time, she enjoys practicing yoga and traveling.
