Social Media and Internet

During my employment at Next Media Animation and Apple Daily, my understanding of social media management, Google analytics, and YouTube monetization grew. My news-writing skills were also further improved as I tackled the news from around the world.

Managerial experience

As a teaching manager, I also functioned as a school principal. I managed the many foreign teachers from both our Taipei branch and Shanghai branch. I was also the middleman between them and the proprietors, as most of the foreign teachers cannot speak Mandarin.

Teaching experience

I worked as an English teacher and later became a teaching manager. My teaching experience enabled me to assess students' needs and their strengths and weaknesses. I was also in charge of the curriculum and the extra curricular activities of the school.
