                                                 Natalie Wang

        My name is Natalie Wang. I got a Bachelor Degree in English Linguistics from Tianjin University of Technology. I had worked in a public school for three years before I came to Maple Leaf. That was a good experience for me, because I understood that teaching benefits teachers as well as students. After that, I came here when Maple Leaf was set up in Tianjin in 2008. And here, I become a teacher in senior high school to help the students who are poor in basic English. Now, it is my seventh year to teach in Maple Leaf. I am trying my best to help my students with my great passion. I hope they can be successful in this magical place.

       我的名字是Natalie Wang. 我获得了天津理工大学英语语言学学士学位。在来到枫叶以前,我在一所公立校工作了三年。对我来说,那是一段很好的经历, 因为我从中明白了教学相长的道理。之后,我在2008年枫叶在天津建校之初来到了这里,成为了一名高中英语教师。现在,我步入了在枫叶工作的第七个年头。我希望我的学生能通过我的帮助和他们自己的努力在这个有“魔力”的地方获得成功。

My name is Alexander Gomm and I am from North Bay,Ontario,Canada. In university I studied Geography and have a keen interest in learning about and experiencing different cultures.

I have been teaching ESL for four and a half years. My first two years were spent at Wndo Girl’s Middle School on theislandofWando,Jeollanamdo,South Korea. In February of 2013, I began working at TEDA Tianjin Maple Leaf middle School and taught there until July of 2015.

I look forward to teaching and learning from your children this year and hopefully we can have a bit of fun along the way

    大家好,我是Alexander Gomm 我来自加拿大安大略省的诺斯贝。在大学里我教地理,我对了解和体验不同的文化有着浓厚的兴趣。






      I am a TEFL/TESOL certified teacher with over 10 years experience teaching a variety of ages and levels. I have taught for one year in Tianjin. As aU.S.citizen who has been living and working inMexicoandCentral Americafor much of the past 18 years, I am well adept at communicating with people of different ages and cultures. I am vey creative and enjoy using my IT stills to produce stimulating material to inspire and motivate my students. I am always committed to improving my teaching skills to ensure the greatest success for my students.






    “The best way to predict your future is to create it” by Abraham Lincoln. I am always inspired by this saying because I always work hard to have a better future in life. Life has been tough to me but being   optimistic and realistic was my tool to get through in every situation.

     很高兴在这里介绍我自己,我叫Justin Jay G. Dionson, 2年级学生的一名外教老师。我是护理方面的理学士,也拥有护士执照。从一个行业转到另一个行业是个艰难的选择。当护士不能补充家里的开销,幸运的是,我对教学很有热情,我也喜欢和孩子一起呆着。我感激枫叶给我一个珍贵的机会,来成为外教老师。在公立医院当护士之后,我就已经开始兼职在网上教课了,教的是英语为第二语言的孩子。

     I would like to introduce myself. I am Justin Jay G. Dionson, one of the International Teachers of Grade 2 students. By degree I am a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Registered Nurse. Shifting from one career to another is a hard choice but working as a Nurse back home can’t really provide enough to compensate the needs of my family. Luckily, I always have a passion for teaching and I love being with kids. I am thankful for Maple Leaf School for giving me an opportunity to be part of the International Teachers which offers me a great help to support my family back home. After working as a Nurse from one of the Public Hospital, I started to work as an Online ESL teacher part time while working as a Resolution Specialist full time.


     I found out myself that I love teaching with the kids and I felt happy that they learn something from me. It was never easy to teach an ESL student because you must have all the patience to deal with their behavior and you must find ways that it would be easy for your student to understand. You must focus on the learning needs of your student so that you can gauge what are the specific areas that they need to work on. In terms of knowing your student you must assess carefully before you go to the teaching process. As the time goes by I fell in love teaching with the kids so I take the steps to learn more about teaching ESL like attending some seminars and read important things online.

  说到我的爱好和兴趣,我喜欢篮球,从小妈妈经常责备我,因为为了多打篮球,快到吃饭了我才回家。有时候喜欢打游戏,是因为游戏里我必须仔细思考,计划周密才能有赢的机会。我也喜欢和朋友、家人去海滩,那让我安静下来,从压力中求得快乐,海浪及空气让我可以暂时远离城市生活。 我的朋友和家人是我努力工作的动力,他们激励我达成生活的目标。

  So, let’s talk about my hobbies and interest. I love to play basketball since I was young and my mom always scolded me because I will only go home when it is time to eat. Most of the time I spent my life playing basketball. I also love to play the famous online game which is DOTA 2 “Defense of the Ancient” which I think everyone is familiar with the game. What I like this game is you must think and plan carefully a strategy to outplay your opponent. By doing so you have an edge to win the game and destroy their base camp. I also love going to the beach together with my friends and family. Spending time in the beach helps me calm and relieved me from all the stress. Hearing the waves and taking in the fresh air is a great escape from the city life. My friends and family are my inspiration to work hard and they also inspire me to attain my goals in life.


      It was tough when I recall the time when I started to work in Maple Leaf since it was my first time to work abroad and the culture itself is diverse. But along the way, I was able to adjust through the efforts of the supportive and approachable Maple Leaf staffs. And to my fellow International Teachers who are always there whenever I need help in terms of work and personal life issues.
