Native English-speaking Teacher
My name’s Cyndi Chong and I’m the new Native English Teacher (NET) at Buddhist Sin Tak College. I have been teaching at the school for about a month now and am settling in well thanks to the friendly teachers, staff and students. So far, I have really enjoyed meeting students inside and outside the classroom, as they have shown me how motivated and talented they all are in their own unique and individual way. I look forward to getting to know each and every student more and helping them to improve their English, more importantly, to spark their love for the language.
Let me first tell you a bit about myself, I was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. I studied a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Education at the University of New South Wales and majored in English and Japanese. After I graduated, I taught in Sydney and Japan. During my two years in Japan, I taught Primary and Secondary students in Fukushima and Izu-Oshima. I have been teaching in Hong Kong for just over two years now and continue to love the experience!
I enjoy traveling to different countries and exploring new cultures. For example, U.S.A. (Hawaii, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas), Russia (Moscow, St. Petersburg), Turkey (Istanbul, Cappadocia, Pamukkale), Italy (Rome, Florence, Tuscany) and Thailand (Chang Mai, Phuket, Bangkok). I would love to share my travel stories with you.
Please come visit me at the English Corner whenever you’re free. I look forward to speaking to you and getting to know you better.
