Programme Coordinator, Level 5

Growing in up Taiwan, Sonia learnt a lot from her grandparents.

The hardworking business owners taught her how businesses operate, and what it takes to be successful, instilling her with a curiosity and passion for the dynamic world of commerce. Several decades later – and 9,000 kilometres from home – Sonia is now sharing her expertise with students at BMP.

After gaining a Bachelor of Business Administration in Taiwan and a Master of Business Administration (majoring in Finance and Accounting) in New York, Sonia spent 11 years working at a national university in Taiwan, both as an international affairs administrator and a tutor. Her natural flair for the classroom saw her instantly connect with, and inspire, her students.

“I just fell in love with tutoring. I love to interact with students from different backgrounds and I always learn something new from them.”

Since moving to New Zealand in 2017, Sonia has continued her tutoring career, initially in Auckland and now here in New Plymouth. She brings her classes alive through sharing examples and personal experiences, and encourages her students to make the most of all the opportunities that present themselves.

“You’ll never know how much you’ll get out of something until you actually do it.”

For Sonia, studying at BMP is an ideal way for aspiring businesspeople to grow their skills and expand their capabilities.

“Tutoring is not just about teaching students what I know – it’s also about providing a fresh perspective on business management and equipping learners with invaluable new tools that can be applied to their work and life.”
