I have enjoyed teaching at Ulink for the past 4 years, continuing to grow my knowledge base, enhance my professional qualifications and expand my practice in ways that benefit both the students and myself.Every year I try to make sure I am teaching something that I can also broaden my knowledge of. In that way both I and the students are always progressing and I can empathise with them, and hopefully bring my own experience of learning the subject directly into the classroom.Prior to working at Ulink I had a great experience in Jiangsu teaching students of all ages and abilities at the #1 rated EF school in China during that time. I also had the privilege of being their Director of Studies for a time, where my focus was not only on students, but also training and hiring other teachers.
Actually my main hobby outside of school is playing with my son, or practicing guitar when I get the free time and there is no homework to mark or chores to do. Some of my wider interests include the usual: travel, language and food etc., but I am also interested in global politics, science-fiction literature, running and motorcycle racing.
I believe that it is the teacher's job to give students a clear idea of the tasks in front of them, to ask students how they think these tasks may be solved, then to offer examples and avenues for students to practice freely. I believe that it is the student's job to be attentive and open to ideas and possibilities. Students should absolutely be encouraged to volunteer and ask questions at all times, and to never be afraid of making mistakes. It is only through making mistakes that real progress can be made. My hope is that parents and the wider school family will also help the students to grow, both academically and spiritually. As a parent I know that teaching and learning begins in the home, and a loving, caring and understanding home life is essential to allow young people to fulfill their potential as both students and human beings in general.
