I direct my students to build a passion for language and they will realize that knowing English is not enough to score high, more importantly, is to know how to make use of it to develop their personality and ability in a unique way.
While grades and exam scores are important, those do not define who they are as people.
If I could teach my students only one thing, it would be that while us teachers at Yola can teach them valuable information and inspire them to achieve their dreams, experience is actually the best teacher, so they shouldn't be afraid to go out in the world and try new things, regardless of how intimidating these things may seem.
The one thing I would love to teach my students is that taking steps creativity and self-discipline will get one far, but the understanding of why they are even taking the steps is what will drive them to the success they desire.
Confidence and passion are traits that must be developed in order to grow not only in the classroom, but outside it as well.
If I had only one thing to teach my students, it would be that their ideas and opinions are valued. If they go out into the working world with strong opinions and confidence in their ideas, they will undoubtedly be successful in whichever path life takes them on.
The importance of taking the responsibility for the changes you want to see in the world
YOLA would be my passion for life. When I've just graduated from Amherst College, that fascination arose in me when Ngo Thuy Ngoc Tu, Co-founder of the YOLA, asked me to teach at YOLA for students with their America dream. I didn't know if SAT was a good start in my career of teaching but I decided to try it out. After several times teaching at YOLA and then received lots of love and support from my students and colleagues, I decided to choose Education as my career path and teaching YOLA would help much. My dream of supporting students becomes a reality.
As a YOLA teacher, I believe that YOLA is creating a perfect environment where English and Life skills learning has become a shared undertaking. YOLA cares about unfolding the full potential of students with new teaching methods. With the passion, dedication, and commitment of a teacher, I try to generate an environment in which students can acquire and internalize the knowledge with creativity. Focusing on provision both indoor and outdoor activities, I want to develop more self-directed learners. It's productive to focus on what such a learner should be able to do.
The one skill I would like my students to have is to frequently reflect on their progress. It is crucial that students are encouraged to take charge of their own learning, to be aware of their strengths and weaknesses. This will allow them to acquire other skills more effectively beyond their time at YOLA.
