He built a new and complete teaching system for the previous school, created a unique teaching method, and created a mature and complete management system. He has been engaged in international education for more than 20 years, and has rich teaching and management experience in the three major international courses IBDP, A Level and AP. His students come from all over the world, more than 20 of whom have been admitted to top universities such as Oxford and Cambridge, and six of whom have followed President Wang from Guangdong to Shanghai.
Since serving as the principal of MacDuffie, he has upgraded the school management and overall planning system to make students love learning and help ordinary students become distinguished. With strong affinity and a serious and responsible attitude towards each student, Principal Wang has won the trust and favor of many parents. Principal Wang insists on attending classes three and a half days a week, taking notes in class, and training teachers on a one-to-one basis every semester to ensure the quality of the school's teacher team.
In order to help more students sprint to famous schools and pave the way for further study, Shanghai MacDuffie has integrated the best quality teaching resources inside and outside the school and launched the project of “Oxford and Cambridge+” led by Principle Wang.
The program will adopt a tutorial system, and each student will be assigned a counselor. The tutor will have a thorough understanding of the child's strengths and weaknesses, and will meet with the child regularly to provide guidance. They keep timely track and give feedback on students' daily performance, help students to grasp the admission requirements of relevant majors in the university, and communicate with students to find out the gaps in time.
In order to help students better meet the admission requirements of elite schools, the program has set a number of relevant phased goals, including academic level, extracurricular activities, language, competition and other aspects that schools attach importance to:
Reading: Finish reading two books each semester. They should be in original English and related to the majors, including freshman textbooks for the target university.
Discipline competitions: Participate in at least three discipline competitions and win at least one prize, including mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry, economics and other disciplines.
Project-based learning PBL: Under the guidance of the tutor, complete independently: determine the research direction --> Determine the theme --> Propose questions and hypothesized conclusions --> experiment or investigation --> Data processing --> summary and presentation; Or participate in the EPQ, the advantage is that you can convert to Tariff points when applying to universities (especially Commonwealth universities).
Ability objectives: ECA courses, Duke of Edinburgh Award activities, to enhance differentiated competitiveness
After the opening of the project, the school will also hold special lectures from time to time to help students on their way to further study.
近期的一场讲座，我们就邀请到了剑桥大学两位校方代表——唐宁学院招生官Dr. Kamran Yunus和学术拓展SCA项目运营总监Dr Mengmeng Wang为同学们带来最新鲜的名校申请干货，并从学术成绩、个人陈述、课外拓展、面试等方面讲述了剑桥大学对申请者的要求和考察。
In a recent lecture, we invited two representatives of the University of Cambridge -- Dr. Kamran Yunus, Head Admission Tutor at Downing College, and Dr. Mengmeng Wang, Head of Operations Super-Curricular Programme. They provided the most practical advice on how to apply for prestigious universities and Cambridge’s requirements on applicants from the aspects of academic performance, personal statement, extracurricular development, interview and so on.
▼ Dr Mengmeng Wang现场讲解
Dr Mengmeng Wang为大家详细介绍了唐宁学院悠久历史和独特的学院制。她特别提到，剑桥大学看重的是申请符合自己兴趣的专业并有能力完成学业的学生，他们会有很强的内驱力和学习热情，具备将学科知识应用于实际问题的能力。
Dr Mengmeng Wang gave a detailed introduction to Downing College's long history and unique college system. In particular, she noted that Cambridge University values students who apply for a major that matches their interests and are able to complete their studies, who will have a strong drive and passion for learning, and the ability to apply subject knowledge to practical problems.

Including where should the focus of PS in the application be placed? How to choose the right major and course? What factors will be considered for admission to Cambridge University?
During the lecture, the teacher introduced to the students the iGEM International Genetically Engineered Machine Competition, one of the highest level international academic competitions in the field of synthetic biology, and one of the 13 top competitions recognized by the Ministry of Education of China. Participants are required to complete corresponding experiments to exercise their academic ability and teamwork ability. The competition and research results have been widely concerned and reported by top academic journals and media, and have wide international influence.
With the theme of "gene bracelet", the teacher also took the students to experience the experiment process. That is, through a simple biological experiment, to extract the DNA in oral epithelial cells, and transfer it to the mold, personally make your own gene bracelet, wear it, and become a unique exclusive jewelry.
通过本次活动，让同学们不仅能在实操中感受 DNA 具象化，对已有的知识有更加深刻的认知，还能收获专属于自己的基因手环，埋下生命科学启迪的种子，敲开了生物科学实验的大门，也为将来名校申请之路增加了竞争力！
Through this activity, students can not only feel the embodiment of DNA in practical operation, have a deeper understanding of the existing knowledge, but also harvest their own gene bracelet. The seeds of life science planted in the students’ heart, they have knocked on the door of biological science experiments. It has also increased the competitiveness of the future school application road!
Motivation, Persistence, Confidence
these are the three key words of "Niu Jian +" project,
and they are also the hopes of Shanghai MacDuffie for every student.
We hope that all students can realize their dreams and win the title of Niu Jian Ivy School.
