Meet the Headmaster – Olivia Wang

Olivia Wang Interview - Shenyang, China

The school is headed up by Olivia Wang (王佳 or Wang Jia in Chinese), a driven woman who has built an impressive career around English and education.

Olivia has spent the last 14 years making a name for herself in the EFL industry, both as a teacher and a business owner. Holding a Master’s degree in English and International Trade, her work has been honoured by being asked to be a special guest professor at Liaoning University and once received a personal invite from the South Korean government.

She has years of classroom experience, and the two very successful branches of Lingo Education School that she owns in and around Shenyang are a testament to her abilities in business development.

Olivia has now set her sights on creating a thriving school for young learners, and we have no doubt in her ability to succeed.
