I became interested in education when I was in university. I had a part-time job for teaching a senior student and she got the first place in the exam.

I became interested in education when I was in university. I had a part-time job for teaching a senior student and she got the first place in the exam. I still remembered her exciting voice through the call, which really gave me a sense of proud and a feeling of compliment. Even if I became a teacher in a training center after I got my master’s degree in Environmental Science, I still put psychology as my first choice in my career, and this is the reason that I got the psychological consultant certificate and applied another master’s degree in education psychology in University College London.

However, as I started to apply psychological theory in my teaching process and communication with students, I could have a strong feeling of establishment. Later I became a teacher in international school, I taught math, biology and psychology, at the same time, I was a homeroom teacher for ninth graders. I found that education is extremely relative to psychology, which is also the main reason for me to apply the education psychology degree. When I was a one-to-one teacher in training center, I could adjust my teaching method based on the different personality of students. For example, if the student is introverted, I usually explained mathematics problems step by step, clearly and logically. And if the student is extroverted, I tend to use reality and stories to clarify those problems. Of course, there will be many introverted students, they still have other differences and learning styles, I will adjust teaching processes based on their characteristics. Besides, when I worked in international school, communication with students became much easier, especially during break time or after school time. I found some student faced problems in emotion or study in public school, and then they transferred to international school. Their parents are rich but busy, they do not have much time to accompany students. Psychology could also play an important part in communication with those students.

I was a one-to-one math teacher for senior students in a training center. And I was also an Algebra 1 teacher in an international school. I am really good at math and most students improved through my training.

I got my master’s degree in environmental biology and I taught biology in an international school for 10th graders. Even though I didn’t get my second degree in educational psychology, I still got through systemic courses in London. Psychology is very connected with sociology, I think a lot about social topics.

I am a very friendly teacher with abroad knowledge and interesting teaching methods, you will love that.
