I display a passion for tutoring my students in a relaxed and encouraging environment. I aim to assist my students in achieving their personal goals and believe each student has different needs. I believe a comfortable learning environment is key. In my classes I focus on providing knowledge, encouragement and confidence to allow my students to improve their English ability.
Every student comes to my class with some knowledge of English. As an English teacher, I try to develop and enhance student's preexisting knowledge by tailoring lessons to individual needs. Taiwanese students typically have a good foundation in English grammar and vocabulary but lack the ability to put their English skills practice. With this in mind, I focus on encouraging students to speak up and learn to express themselves in English.
Besides simply focusing on the mechanics of English, I emphasize the importance of understanding cultural and social issues in order to gain a more complete understanding of the English language. Additionally, I strive to help students move from textbook English to being able to speak like a native speaker.
Most importantly, I strongly believe that an effective teacher must be entertaining in order to captivate his audience's attention. Therefore, I endeavor to make my students have fun and relax in my classes. I enjoy using humor as way to develop a comfortable and enjoyable learning environment.
I've always been fond of the idea of teaching. When I was in my final year at university, I worked as a private tutor for several high school students. I taught mainly math, science (physics + chemistry) and biology. I discovered from this experience that I had a talent for teaching, so I decided to come back to Taiwan and teach English.
"No pain, no gain" is a motto I sincerely believe when it comes to learning English. It takes years of practice and some might describe it a painful process. But I believe that everyone is capable of learning anything as long as he/she puts his/her heart to it. I'm always ready to help those who are serious about learning English and those who really care. I also enjoy being challenged by students because that shows that they are really thinking about what they are doing and are serious about it.
「在成長的路上, 我幸運的擁有過一些很棒的老師. 因此, 英文課對我是親切的. 如果學生們能有我對英文這般的快樂且美好的經驗, 那學習的路將更順遂. 而他們課堂上的笑臉和努力後的成果, 也是讓我成為一個好老師的最大動力.
語言是認識世界的工具。我的目標，是幫助學生在日常生活中，建立使用英文的自信心。而我認為, 活學活用的學習, 才是能讓課程變得更活潑有趣的最大秘密.」
I was lucky to have good English teachers when I was little. Therefore, learning was always fun for me. If students can experience what I had, they will know English is not difficult at all. The happy faces in class as well as the progress they have made are all the encouragement I need to make me a better teacher.
Language is a tool that helps you to understand the world. My goal is to assist students to establish their confidence in using English on a daily basis. I truly believe that learning can be more fun and interesting if we make it useful and practical.
「 我無法靠自己的力量改造世界, 因此我認為透過教育是最好的方式. 英語是全球化的國際語言, 它也是欣賞其他文化及與世上各地人們溝通的最佳工具. 藉由它, 也讓世界更瞭解我鍾愛的國家--台灣.
世上沒有笨學生，只有懶學生! 只要你願意, 永遠不嫌晚!」
I cannot change the world a better place by myself; therefore, I think education is the best method. English is a global and international language, and it’s the best tool to help people communicate with other people all over the world, and appreciate other cultures; it also helps the world understand more about my beloved country, TAIWAN.
It’s never to late to learn, and willingness is the key to success in learning!
