The Legend

starbugs story

Starbugs, founded in Shanghai, China in 2006, was built on the vision of a Chinese returnee family. The couple, after experiencing numerous set backs in searching for quality English language education for their US-born son and daughter, decided to open a small English tutorial center for their children. News of the center soon spreaded. It wasn't long before neighbors scrambled to send their kids to the learning center, after hearing that its teaching resources were of high quality and authentically American and that its founders were trustworthy and believed in the best education for their children. They were also impressed by the center's novel teacher, a warm-hearted, highly dedicated teacher from North America who loved to read, write and teach young children. The American classic story “Snowy Day” was chosen for the first winter class.  Then, magic happened in the classroom!  The students loved the book and enjoyed their teacher.  Parents were also elated to see that their children were happy to learn.  This laid the foundation for Starbugs' now renowned reading course.   As Starbugs' popularity and reputation continued to grow, it became time to take the school to another level.

The couple soon found the best new leadership to expand the Starbugs vision.  The first, Mr. Qing Yang, is the son of a renown English professor from Beijing Foreign Studies University.  Mr. Yang received his advanced education in the US and became highly successful in his own right by building a stellar reputation in the banking and consulting industries in the US before returning to China. The second, Ms. Michelle Liu, is also a Chinese returnee.  Ms. Liu was a part of China elite's first generation of CCTV English Channel anchorwomen.  Following CCTV, she, too, moved to North America to advance her success in banking and the Olympics global relations industries before embarking on her return.

Serving as dynamic living examples of how excellence in English education expands one's career and overall quality of life, Starbugs' leadership, along with its staff, is working to provide the same opportunity to more and more children across China.   The legend continues.
