I believe teaching is my thing and it enriches my life as well as others. I constantly develop myself to be a better teacher and I care about my students and their progress.

In my former career, I worked as a high school teacher, an interpreter in many events including IDP Australia education fairs, and academic staff at the University of Sydney. 

In my spare time, I love playing music, cooking delicious dishes, baking cakes and reading novels.
