Grade(s): College / Other
I am an English teacher and have taught English in Singapore, Bangladesh, Morocco, Russia, Syria and the United Arab Emirates. I started teaching in 1994 and enjoy meeting people from different countries. I don’t just think of myself as a teacher but as a student too, because I learn as much from my students as they do from me. It’s a wonderful exchange!
Now, I am a freelance teacher and I try to help students who are learning English online. My students now are also from many different countries around the world and I absolutely love talking to them!
In my free time, I like watching films, doing some arts and crafts as well as making some clothes on my sewing machine. I enjoy being creative. At the same time, I am also studying for my Masters degree in Applied Linguistics.
I have two young children and a very helpful husband. When we have time, we like going to the beach or to a cafe. I love Thai food as it is so spicy. My love affair with food has always been ‘The spicier the better!’ If I have the time, I try to cook some Asian food in the kitchen but in my experience, it has always been a disaster!
Thanks for reading my profile!
Bill Nye is a man with a mission: to foster a scientifically literate society by helping people everywhere understand and appreciate the science that makes our world work. Nye has spent the past 20 years educating students young and old about science and understands the importance of keeping minds active after the last school bell rings. “Learning can happen anywhere and at anytime – the important thing is that it should never stop,” Nye said. “We’ve put together fun, free and easy activities that will make this the summer of learning versus the summer filled with the dreaded words ‘I’m bored.’ ” AN EARLY KNACK FOR HOW THINGS WORK Making science entertaining and accessible is something Bill has done most of his life. Growing up in Washington, D.C., he spent afternoons and summers de-mystifying math for his classmates. While working for Boeing in Seattle, Bill combined his love of science with his flair for comedy. After winning a Steve Martin look-alike contest, he became an engineer by day and a stand-up comic by night. Eventually, Bill made the transition to comedy writer and performer on Seattle’s home-grown ensemble comedy show “Almost Live.” This is where “Bill Nye the Science Guy®” was born. The 18-time Emmy Award-winning show appeared before Saturday Night Live and later on Comedy Central. During this time, he also wrote five kids’ books about science, including his latest title, “Bill Nye’s Great Big Book of Tiny Germs.” BROADENING HIS MISSION Bill’s passion for math and science translated into a love of space. His role as CEO of The Planetary Society, the world’s large space interest organization, has taken him across the globe. And one thing Bill is very proud of is the MarsDials, two sundials on residing on Mars he created with Cornell scientists. America’s favorite stand-up scientist hasn’t changed much from that kid growing up in Washington, DC. He still rides his bike to work. He’ll pull out his Periodic Table of the Elements from his wallet. And his drive for helping others understand science is as strong as ever.
