My name is Ning Zhan. You can call me Jenny instead. I was born in Quanzhou, where is a coastal city in south-eastern part of China. I have a Bachelor degree in Radio and Television from Shanghai Normal University and Master of Education degree in Learning, Teaching & Curriculum from University of Missouri – Columbia. Over the past five years, I have had the wonderful opportunity to instruct a diverse group of students from Kindergarten to College level in Columbia, Missouri. As a result, I have developed effective teaching techniques and instructional methods, which have allowed me to educate all styles of learners, and to foster a fun and engaging learning environment that effectively teaches art appreciation with Mandarin integrated, in which promotes creativity and encourages growing independence. Now, I am Chinese teacher at Charlotte Chinese Academy. I love to share Chinese language, culture and art with people surroundings and can‘t wait to share my passion with students from Bon Voyage World Language Academy.
Veronica is a native speaker of Russian language. Being in love with different cultures and their history from a childhood, she has decided to devote all the energy to “living through” new mentalities and learning new languages by travelling and teaching children over three continents.
Veronica obtained a B.A. in International Law from the Belarus State University and then did postgraduate work in linguistics: both in English and Spanish.
Veronica has been teaching Russian for over 2 years in Belarus; and also volunteered to tutor the language to children with disabilities in the U.S.A.; in addition to that, she spent the last year in China giving English classes to the students between 4-5 years of age.
As a teacher, Veronica believes that parents are the best teachers and role models for their child, therefore, positive communications between parents and teachers is a key method in her work. She looks forward to be the best teacher for You or Your child!
Ciao. My name is Sara and I am here to use my 10 years of teaching experience to help you succeed in your dream. For the last 4 years I have been teaching Italian language to students in a top 3 Pontifical University in Rome, Italy. I was born in Rome, Italy and graduated with honors from the University of Rome, La Sapienza, with a degree in Asian Studies and Cultures. I hold a master in Teaching Italian Language. In 2006 I moved to Japan where I worked as an Italian teacher for two years. I also have Ditals II, Teaching Italian as a Foreign language Certification. I am proud of my culture and love to share my language and upbringing with my students. I’m a passionate Italian food and art lover so whether you’re reading biographical information about the brilliant painter Caravaggio or figuring out how to cook some of your favorite Italian dishes, learning Italian with me is simply essential!

My name is Nash and I’m originally from San Antonio,
Texas where I grew up in a bilingual and bi-cultural environment. I realized
that teaching was my passion when I was living in Spain at the age of 22 and
I’ve been involved in Spanish language pedagogy in some capacity for the last
15+ years. I have an MA degree in Hispanic Literatures and Cultures from the
University of Texas at San Antonio and I’m currently finishing my PhD at The
Ohio State University with a degree in Spanish and Latin American Studies. I
have experience teaching all ages and levels, from elementary Spanish language
courses to advanced composition and literature courses. I’m currently living in
Córdoba, Argentina with my wife and my son where I teach both English and
Spanish. When I’m not working, I enjoy
playing the guitar and learning Argentinian folk music.
Learning a new language is an incredibly rewarding
experience and I take much satisfaction in watching my students grow both
linguistically and culturally. Bon
Voyage is a unique language academy where both of these goals can be
accomplished. I look forward to meeting
all of you who are interested in learning and improving your Spanish!
