I have been in the education industry for the past 8 years, designing & conducting Life Skills Workshops for various Primary Schools, Secondary Schools & Tertiary Institutions and teaching Chinese to students in Singapore.
Now, my focus is to only teach the subject which I am passionate about, i.e. Chinese Language. Despite being born in Indonesia, Chinese Language is my best language (compared to English & Bahasa Indonesia) due to strong family influence. Since young, my father would teach me at home. By the time I come to study Secondary 3 in Singapore, I have already completed the O Level syllabus. I continued to do well for Chinese Language in A Levels Examination. In my university years, I took a Minor in Chinese. Currently, I am holding HSK Level 6 Certificate and Certificate for Teachers of Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages (CTCSOL).
Besides Chinese Language, I am also familiar with Chinese Culture as I have many Chinese friends. I have also been actively researching on Chinese economy & business and studying, travelling & working extensively in China.
My 7 Core Beliefs as an Educator are:
1. You Can Do It!
2. What We Are Doing Here Is Important.
3. I Am Not Going to Give Up on You Even If You Give Up On Yourself.
4. There Is No Good or Bad Students. There Is Only Good or Bad Teachers.
5. Tell Me, I Forget Show Me, I May Remember Involve Me & I Understand.
6. Different Students Different Strokes.
7. Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish.
