Bio: I always think every child has his/her own talent...

.... As a teacher, I love to observe children first in order to discover their own passion and interests. Then I would help them develop and strengthen their interests. I believe that passion is what makes children decide to study more. It’s important to build children confidence with positive support and motivation during classes. During classes, I enjoy to create activities that make learning fun. Because having fun while learning, it really helps children retain academic knowledge better because the process is enjoyable and memorable.
