Ms Dian's Profile
Her experience teaching in school has shaped her teaching beliefs that students learn best when they are presented with authentic contexts that allows them to make connections between what they are learning and what they experience beyond the classroom. By empowering students to solve real world problems, they would thus be able to blossom into well-rounded contributers of society.
Ms. Dian’s passion for teaching young children began at the age of seventeen on her trip to Cambodia and Vietnam, where she volunteered in an orphanage to teach children the English language. She then spent her twenties working in Dubai, where she had the opportunity to support youths in improving their oracy and reading skills.
These opportunities allowed her to learn to communicate and interact effectively with people from diverse backgrounds and gain a sensitivity for other cultural norms.
Despite working in a different industry, her passion for reading literature and teaching children remained. Thus began her journey to become a teacher specialising in the English language.
