 Claire Yue — Managing Partner & Trainer


Claire was a Chinese national before she migrated to Singapore 19 years ago. She graduated from the National University of Singapore with an Honours Degree in Chinese Studies.

Through her years of varied and rich working experiences in Chinese related field, such as a Chinese language trainer and course planner, Chinese editor with Times Publishing Group, and even as a Chinese DJ with Rediffusion radio station, Claire has accumulated useful experiences and interesting insights in Chinese language pedagogy and teaching. Coupled with her unique background of spending half of her life in China and the other half in Singapore, she is familiar with both societies and good at identifying and explaining the regional differences in Chinese language usage. She was also the editor-in-charge for major bilingual publications including ‘Times Encyclopedia of Written Chinese’, ‘Key to Mastering Chinese Characters’, and ‘Conversational Chinese’.
 

Currently, with a successful career as a real estate professional serving both mainland Chinese and local clients, she is also well-equipped with bilingual knowledge in the latest regional government policies, financial and economic overview and forecasts, and current affairs, which in turn value adds her teaching of Chinese.

Claire genuinely believes in approaching the learning of Chinese language in an engaging and fun manner. She has demonstrated her ability to come up with innovative and creative ways to ensure an enjoyable and enriching learning experience. This ability stems from her experiences in learning English and Japanese languages from beginner level, which gave her insights into the many obstacles faced by students in foreign language learning.

Claire has been teaching with Elite Linguistic Network for more than 2 years and has accumulated more than 500 teaching hours. Her teaching approach has benefited many of her students who are business professionals, to acquire Chinese effectively and efficiently through engaging ways. Her students include professionals from Embassy of Indonesia, Platts, Richemont Luxury Pte Ltd, Hyundai Logistics (Singapore), Microsoft, HSBC and Prudential etc.

She has officially onboarded to become one of the partners of Elite Linguistic Network from July 2016 onwards. With her abundance of front-line teaching experiences, she has provided valuable inputs in fine-tuning the overall course structure, course content and supplementary material development etc.
