Joanne Teoh is co-founder and director of Chinese Language Program (CLP).

Ms. Teoh has lived in Canada, Asia, and America, and has a strong background in Marketing and Business Developement. She has worked with a global multinational company in Merchandising, Training and Development, and Retail Marketing, managing 11 countries in the Asia Pacific Region. Ms. Teoh has also owned and operated start-up businesses in North America and Asia. Her global work experience and keen business sense helps to support her vision for CLP.
Wanna Zhong is the Co-founder and Director of Chinese Language Program (CLP). She is a mom to two beautiful, smart and happy girls who both inspire and motivate her every day. Wanna feels very strongly about preparing her children early with skills that will help and enrich their lives, where those skills are obtained through an enjoyable and fun learning process. She is very passionate that learning Mandarin be an everyday part of their lives, just as much as their ballet or swimming lessons. Before she switched careers to a full time educator to her children, she was a product development manager at Maharam for over 9 years, a leading supplier of textiles to commercial architects and interior designers. Her leading, managing and organizational skills are essential to her role as a Co-founder and Director of CLP.
