70-year-old Pan Yulian has been offering free after school tutoring classes for kids for 25 years in the oasis city of Kashgar. Pan has mastered Uyghur, Mandarin Chinese, Russian, English and Tibetan. She may be a strict teacher, but all her students call her Granny Pan. She reckons she’s taught more than 2,000 children in the past 25 years, with some now in college or following professions. [Photo: China Plus/Wei Yuchen, Lei Xia]
