I have taught English for 9 years in Asia. Taiwan was my first destination where I taught kindergarten, primary and high school students. My experience also included teaching in Japan, South Korea and in China. Literature and creative writing is what I am passionate about the most. I'm currently teaching English for a well-known University and middle school in China. As well, in charge of designing an academic curriculum for both institutions.
To bring out the creativity out of my students is what I keep in my heart the most. I believe writing is not just about words on a piece of paper, but ideas and thoughts that flow out freely of one's mind. I'm the type that likes giving praise and encouragement as an incentive for my students, so that they can continuously challenge themselves in every writing and reading task that's assigned. The most important is getting every student involved in all class activities. No student should be left behind and this what makes learning fun for all.

Outside the classroom, I have a passion for the Great Outdoors. I love hiking and camping. Being out in nature gives me the wonderful opportunity to capture what God has given us.
