Ms Xie's Profile

Creative Writing Teacher at Lil' but Mighty

In her classes, Ms Xie uses her creative juices to get her students invested in writing a story that they may perceive to be mundane. She recognises that each student is different and thinks differently, and uses their interests to show them that even school mandated writing assignments can be fun. These unique strategies are specially crafted for each student in order to get them interested in the language. Moreover, she believes that communicating with parents is key and that working with them as a team is paramount to their child’s success.

Ms Xie has undergone our in-house Movers and Shakers Teacher Training Programme.
