About Melody Lu

Melody Lu is a certified elementary school teacher with multiple credentials in both California and Taiwan for teaching and for special education. Melody also possesses a Masters Degree in Montessori Education from Loyola University Maryland.

While pursuing further studies, working towards a degree in Certified Public Accounting, and a dream of opening her own Montessori School, Melody came into contact with a couple of other professionals who were both attempting to learning Mandarin Chinese at the time, but were having difficulty learning with their class materials. Melody saw an opportunity, and put together a 10-lesson course book and class plan using her teaching background.  She was successful at helping her new friends with an effective introduction to the Mandarin language and Chinese style and customs of speaking.

These friends were so impressed with the potential of her teaching method and encouraged her to create more materials and reach out to others who were struggling with traditional methods of learning Mandarin. Melody has built on the original book and lessons, and began teaching Mandarin courses for K-12 students, college level students, and even at local reputed corporations in San Diego.

Melody now has books for training professionals on travel, and those involved with retail sales, real estate, and even a cooking book and a book to help with restaurant ordering. In addition, Melody is now releasing a full set of 24 mini-books aimed at helping children learn the Mandarin language.

Her credentials include relationships with the following organizations: High Tech High International  School Qualcomm Inc., Cal State San Marcos, San Diego Community college District, San Diego Symphony, Men’s Legal Center, Honor Our Troops, and Gaston & Gaston.
