What do you like most about teaching and being a teacher?
I love children. Since I was a little child my self, I enjoyed looking after younger children in the neighborhood and my cousins. My parents assisted me to learn business and office studies but I never forgot about my passion for children. Therefore, I started to volunteer at a charity for children in the UK which I loved so much that it helped me make a decision to complete my TEFL certificate and become a teacher. Teaching doesn’t feel like a job to me, it’s rather my passion. It is so rewarding when I see the children I’m teaching are having fun on the lessons and achieve knowledge in English. It’s a wonderful feeling when a child starts speaking and answering in English. I’m very proud of all my studenst.
How do you feel about the Helen Doron Early English Method?
Helen Doron’s way of learning is just marvelous. Can’t imagine a better way a child can learn second language. It’s great that the students gain knowledge while having fun so they enjoy learning and love English. Repeated hearing is the key of this method which is the natural way of learning languages, either is mother tongue or a second language.
Any inspiring thought?
When a child reaches the age of five, he or she would have grown more than 90% of their potential mental growth. Most of the brain building activities take place within the first five or six years. This period is referred to as very critical, prime and time of opportunity for a growing baby.
What is your education motto/mantra?
The secret in education lies in respecting the student.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Kids don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”
I believe it is very important to love our students and care for them.
