strive to give students the ability to discuss the topics that are important to them. I believe that it's important to be able to understand each student's unique difficulties and goals, and subsequently to tailor my teaching approach to leave them feeling satisfied, engaged, and interested in the materials I've taught. I always try to make learning fun, but at the same time provide motivation and concrete suggestions on how the student may improve his/her English.
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.
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 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!
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 have always had a passion for teaching and teaching gives me a great opportunity to share with others.
Patience, passion and persistence are the key in language acquisition. Never let excuses stop you from learning
Pay Attention to Your Life
When I drive alone, I just drive. I don’t pay attention to the trees, the birds, people walking on the sidewalks; I just drive, but when my son is in the car that is another story.
Every time I take him to school I hear the excited cry, “Look” during our thirty minute ride. No, we don’t take a different road. We travel the same way every day. Still, my son finds something new to become excited about every time.
He knows I can’t stop when he asks me to, but when I do turn around at a red light or stop sign his eyes become incredibly bright. He really sees the world—the way the sun shines through the trees, the way the birds fly in the sky, the way fire trucks drive, orange cars, the way people walk their dogs.
What does this mean? It means I have to pay attention because he wants me to see all these things, too. I can’t see them as familiar things; I must see them as things that are special at that moment. In other words, I must see the extraordinary in the seemingly ordinary.
We have a saying in English, “You never step in the same river twice” because it is constantly flowing and changing. These car rides remind me that life is also always changing. Every day is new. Sometimes, while rushing around, too busy even to stop for gas, we fail to notice. Sometimes, we act as if we are living the same day over and over again.
When we start to see things as ordinary, we stop experiencing the people on the street, the birds in the sky, the trees and the flowers. We stop listening because we think we already know, and we stop looking because we think we have seen it before. We don’t live in the present because we believe the moment before or after this one was or is more important.
