Alan Senior

My name is Alan. Susan and I have been married for 38 years and we have three grown-up sons and one baby grandson, all living in Britain. We have both been teaching full-time at Yang-En University in Quanzhou for the past year.
I come from UK and have an MA in Physics from Oxford University and a Master's Degree in Industrial Administration from Yale Graduate School.

 Susan and I have travelled widely throughout America and Europe, as well as visiting a number of countries in North Africa and the Middle-east. We plan to travel to see as much as possible of China and Asia during the holidays while we are working in China. We are both keen tennis players.

Alexia Wilm

  

The minute I stepped onto the campus, I knew I had to work here! There was something very special about the atmosphere...it made me feel at home. And then, as soon as I started teaching, I knew I was home. The students and staff at TKK welcomed  me so warmly…I had only planned to stay for one year, but am teaching my 2nd year and plan to stay for a 3rd! I am the happiest I have been in my entire life! Xiexie, TKK!

Oh, and, I’m married, no children (yet!). I studied psychology and photography!

Ashton Fourie

  

Ashton decided to give up life as a partner and manager in several businesses, to pursue the more tranquil life of lecturing.  He is currently completing a second Business Management Degree, thereby living his own philosophy that we should never stop improving ourselves.  He believes in the motto that it's more important to do what you enjoy, than to be successful in the eyes of society.  Ashton has a passion for seeing people improve their lives and get closer to using their full potential.  This passion has led him to lecture Business Management part time before finally deciding to leave his business career and go into full time lecturing. In his free time, Ashton loves cycling around the Chinese countryside, reading a wide variety of literature, watching good movies and writing.  He has written two books - one on Leadership and one on Performance Management.

Ashton's wife, Li Li is a Chinese citizen from the small city of Zhang Zhou. She runs a small private bakery specialising in artistic cakes.  They have two children, Kaitlyn and Justin, who are two and a half years, and one year and a bit, respectively.

  

  

Bonnie Vierthaler

  

I'm an artist from the US.  I started teaching at Xiada in 2000. My new students always wanted to know what I did before I came to China .  When I told them about my BADvertising Institute, a tobacco prevention program based on my artwork, and showed them my website ( www.badvertsing.org ), they immediately recognized the great need in China and wanted to do that here, too.  We've already done many projects here in China.(link  projects to  * )
This year, in the spring of 2006, some of my students took the bull by the horns and we founded Green Breathing as an official organization at Xiamen University ...dedicated to bringing Smokefree Air to China , empowering non-smokers to reclaim their right to smokefree air, and encouraging smokers to quit.  In March, we encouraged the Xiamen International Marathon committee to make the marathon route a Smokefree Zone and in May, the Zhang Zhou Campus agreed to go smokefree.  We're now engaged in the work of putting those intentions into action.
By the fall semester we had Green Breathing branches on the Tan Kah Kee Campus, the main campus, and the Hanway English Kindergarten.  We're in the process of setting up a citizens group in Xiamen . We invite you to visit our website at www.greenbreating.org and enjoy our Smokefree Campus.
In addition to working on Green Breathing, I love being with friends and I also love being alone..enjoying a quiet life, reading, meditating, doing tai chi, experimenting with my oil pastels, and taking photos for my new Aesthetics class.  I often go to my second Chinese home in an old village outside Li Jiang where I'm eager to work in the garden, do my art work, and explore the other mountain villages. Improving my Putong Hua is, of course, an integral part of my everyday life.

  

  

Change Parker

  

Change Parker is an American teacher with Masters degrees in English as a Second Language and Natural Resource Management. His advanced education reflects his passionate interest in the beauty and life in Nature, its relationship with human beings, and the critical need for a common language that enables people from all cultures to communicate with understanding with each other.
Change’s Chinese name is Lin Shu, (whose meaning is “one tree in the woods”). His Chinese wife’s name is Lin Li. Their son studies in Nanjing at Jin Ling Senior Middle School. He also has an older daughter who lives in San Francisco, California and is a modern environmental dancer.
For over 20 years Change has pursued his passion as an artist and craftsman: poetry, painting, leather work, necklace beadwork and wood sculpture. He enjoys walks in Nature and sharing his knowledge about its life forms and processes and environments. Change’s motto is: Free Will, Choice, Humanity.

Chantal Mulders

  

My first name is French, my last name is German, but my passport says I’m Dutch. No wonder students are so confused when I tell them my name: Chantal Mülders. Luckily, they can also call me XiangTao (or fragrant peach, although I’m neither very fragrant or peachy).

I’m in China since July 2007, arriving here right after I graduated Radboud University Nijmegen (the Netherlands) with a master’s in Linguistics. I have a special interest in how people learn a foreign language, sign language, and the US. At TKK, I teach English writing to the sophomore English majors. I love writing, reading, foreign cultures, and travelling.

  

Ellen Tann

  

Hi: My name is Ellen Tann. I am a Chinese American. My two sons are in Seattle, Washington. I have been teaching English to international students since 2000. I love people and enjoy helping people learn a new language and other cultures. I have traveled to more than 15 countries in the world and always enjoy meeting new people! I am looking forward to teaching you and learning more about you too!

  

  

Eric Black

  

I am an American who has been living and working in China since February of 2006. I came to China with the ambition to study both the Chinese language and culture. I believe an important aspect of language education is cross cultural communication; so, I encourage my students to utilize media that will teach them about cultural exchange, as well as, language exchange. I believe that it is good to learn another language, but it is better to understand the language in the context of its original culture.

Glen Ponse

  

Hello – my name is Glen Ponse, and I'm from New Zealand, although usually I live in Australia. As you might expect, with an MA in English and a BA in Psychology I'm interested in the social aspects of human development, communication, and interactions, but I also have a technical background in telecommunications electronics and have an interest in how echnology influences human culture and behaviour. I have always found China to be a fascinating country, the study of which does much to throw light upon my own culture, and look forward to seeing its future progress.

I also have the TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate which I obtained in Zhuhai, China.I love travelling and I love learning about new cultures; I came to Xiamen to visit a close friend for the Chinese New Year, it was meant to be a two week holiday, but I loved Xiamen so much that I stayed for two months and decided to come back to Xiamen to teach English. I am very happy to be here and look forward to teach you, share my travel experiences with you as well as learn from you.

Larry Tann

  

My name is Larry Tann. I'm an ‘abc.' Although I was born in the United States, but I‘d spent my early childhood living and being educated in Southeast Asia. I have been teaching ESL both in the Los Angeles and Seattle areas. I've especially enjoyed teaching international students. They are enthusiastic, eager and hard working. I'm looking forward to meeting you and enriching you in your English learning experience.

Lucas Kohnke

  

Born in the year of the Dragon, Mr. Kohnke has been fascinated with Chine since he first discovered egg rolls. His interest towards Asia and especially China grew during his M.A. studies where the focal point of his research - People's Republic of China and its many different ethnic minorities. Furthermore, Mr. Kohnke is a well qualified teacher and demonstrated achiever with exceptional knowledge of international politics (transitional order/change; conflict [rivalries]; technological change; long-term transitions). Additionally, Mr. Kohnke has a strong educational background combined with fluency in several languages. On his spare time, Mr. Kohnke is an avid traveler and passionate food lover. In his mind the best Chinese food can be found in Guangdong province, and he would highly recommend everyone to visit Sanya (Hainan Island) China's Hawaii.

Mark Carver

  

Mark came to China in fall 2005 after graduating with a degree in English literature.  He has taught in two colleges before coming to Xiamen, and he has also worked part-time in several language schools and English camps.  He has travelled to many cities and places of interest in China, and he enjoys looking for new places and experiences whenever he has a chance.  Mark loves art, especially the art of tattoos.  He also enjoys watching films, reading, writing, and cooking.  He doesn’t know where the future will take him, but he really enjoys teaching English in universities and he hopes that he can make students enjoy learning as much as he enjoys teaching them.

   Mark got married in February 2009 to a wonderful Chinese girl named Zhu Yun.  They plan to live in Xiamen for a long time and they are excited about their future together.

Michael

  

First off, my name is Michael. I come from the sunny land of Singapore, where it is hot all year long. Growing of there was fun but I was most happy in University in Sydney Australia. I majored in hospitality and spent many years in this industry.
My last hospitality job was a hotel manager. I soon feel the need to do something more fulfilling. And thus decided to become a teacher. Following in my father's footsteps, who was a teacher for 30 years, came rather naturally.
I have spent 3 years in China so far, the last 2 teaching in a college in Jiangxi Province. I am now in the beautiful campus of TKK College and am enjoying every minute of it. The teachers and students are wonderful and I look forward to a great year ahead.

  

  

Michael Nusbaum

  

I prefer to be called Michael, not Professor/Mister Nusbaum. So if you see me on the street and want to say hello, you can say, “Hi Michael”. I enjoy learning Mandarin Chinese as well as promoting English education. If you want to travel and learn about the world outside your country’s borders, then I encourage you to learn more English. One famous and favorite encouraging quote is as follows: “Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy” (Mahatma Gandhi). Additionally, the photograph above shows me sipping a mango shake on one of the Philippines most pristine beaches.

Robert Berry

  

Hi, my name is Robert. My Chinese name is 白磊. My students call me 白老. I am a thirteenth generation American from Scots-Irish roots. Most of my family is now centered in Nashville. I come from a big family of accountants and lawyers, and I have mostly followed the family tradition. I say “mostly”, because I am the first of my family to live outside of America in a long time!
I paid for my master’s coursework by working in the accounting department of a transportation management company, where I audited freight bills and handled a mixture of financial and managerial reporting for different clients, including some Fortune 500 companies. I earned my J.D. in Illinois in 1999 and worked as an attorney for a few years before coming to China, where I met my wife, Limei.
I am a traditional guy, which is probably why I like Chinese culture so much. My wife is Minnan, and I am very interested in the history of the Minnan people. I grew up in Tennessee, which is mostly hills and mountains, so I enjoy hiking and mountain climbing. I also enjoy playing soccer/football.

This is one of the many reasons i traveled east. hope to get to know you all very soon....

Tom Shen

  

Hello, my name is Tom Shen. I am an Australian who was born and brought up in China. I had my first Bachelor of Arts when I was 20. I had worked as a teacher teaching English at a university in China for 7 years before I went to pursue further study overseas. I studied and received an advanced diploma in business management at Regents College of Business in Sydney , Australia. I also passed the exams and was successfully accredited as a professional translator by NAATI at the University of New South Wales. In the past years, I have been working as a student advisor at student advisory centre for education helping students in their study in Australia. I have also spent most of my years working as a sales consultant at a global business organization assisting customers from all over the world. I am so pleased that I can have the opportunity to teach at such a beautiful university. I have always been enjoying sharing my knowledge of English and other experiences with my students and taking great delight in learning from the students. So let's work together, study together, make progress together and succeed together!

  

  

Vicki Tofiq

  

Hi, my name is Vicki Tofiq, I am British and I have just started teaching at TKK College, Xiamen University.
I majored in Modern Chinese Studies at Leeds University in 1990, which included 1 year studying at Fudan University in Shanghai, then went on to get a teaching qualification so I could live and travel around the world, and meet people from all different cultures. I have been teaching English now for 12 years, first in Greece and in Spain then teaching English for business purposes for 8 years in Holland.
I have always been fascinated by China, so for me it was a great opportunity to come over and teach English here, especially now when China is developing rapidly and English is becoming an increasingly important world language. Last year, I taught English at Longyan University, and enjoyed it so much that I decided that I wanted to stay in China after that. I think I will be very happy in Xiamen too.
I studied calligraphy last year and I like to practice doing that in my free time. In the future, I hope to learn how to do tai’chi, as well as to further improve my Mandarin and eventually to become fluent in it.

  

  

Victoris Robbertze

  

My name is Victoris Robbertze but you can call me Tori. My husband and I have been in China for 1 year now and we are loving it! I am a aphic Designer by trade but have always wanted to teach...so now I am living that dream.

   For my thesis I produced a graphic book about AIDS orphans and before coming here I worked for an HIV organization in South Africa. So I  am very passionate in the fight against this disease.

   I love to paint in my spare time; take photos; read all types of books and enjoy nature. I look forward to another year getting to know you!
