About the lesson

I like to communicate with students, and meanwhile I can improve my teaching methods based on their feedback. Reciprocally, learners can foster their learner agency with appropriate scaffolding and support that they need from the teacher. I think education can be designed to benefit both teachers and students. In my approach, I regard teaching as a means to gain experiences while students can build conceptual knowledge and skills that they are interested or needed for deeper learning. Teaching as learning is a happy process that I'd like to involve in my life. My philosophy for learning is that each person learns in a different way. I am here to help them to discover their individuality and work alongside them to maximize it. I believe in hands-on experiences, creativity and learning through play.
