Instructor Biography

Chuck Zhang, Udemy Instructor

I was born and raised in Beijing and now I am a course designer in cugb

I have a bachelor degree of law of China Institution of industrial relationship and a master degree of education of Beijing normal university.

On 9.19 1983,a baby was delivered in the hospital of Xuan Wu hospital,which was named after one of the districts of Beijing.

However the Xuan wu distrct changed its name to Xi cheng districts in 2012.

This incident reminded me that all those things which can make me to remember my home town is vanishing,and also gave me the motive to make a course to record my memory of Beijing.

Meanwhile, i decide to design a series of course of Beijing's scenery to introduce my home town to the world.

Although I am a newbie of designing,but i have lots of experience of modern long distant education and a wealth of knowledge of Beijing.

I hope you can love this city as i do after you finishing my course!
