  • I graduated from Cardiff Business School, Wales in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in International Business Management. At one point during that semester, my friends and instructor recommended that I consider another field. Before I graduated, I was a substitute teacher for my sister who is a ballet and nail instructor in KL where I learnt to develop closer connection with younger kids.

    During my semester, I taught evening classes in painting and drawing at Cardiff – Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. Living and working abroad was an invaluable experience not only did it allow me to work with students and hone my craft; it also gave me the opportunity to travel and learn about different cultures. Since then, I have been teaching art voluntarily at home for the past few years and I love it.

    One of my greatest strengths as an educator is encouraging each student’s unique needs by developing a personal understanding of each one of them. I achieve this by seeing and accessing the students as individuals and tailoring lesson plans to accommodate multiple intelligences. My goal is to possess sterling reputation for designing fun, educational, and enriching lessons and activities that inspire and motivate children while customizing approach to involve social studies and multiculturalism.

    I had a wonderful opportunity of being a student teacher at Cozy Kidz House. The centre guided me as I integrated my lifelong artistic experience with my students. I end every day by passing out compliments to students as they leave the building and wishing them a great day. As more and more students were added to the original group I try new strategies to demonstrate to my students how much I care about them and their futures. This freed me from the time-consuming and inefficient practice of imparting information to whole classes at once so I could spend more time coaching and monitoring students individually.
