Being a temporary Peddie Teacher
The same as Peddie students, the students of EFZ always work very hard. At school, they need to spend a lot of time studying and attending a lot of activities. On weekends, most of them still chose to study to make them keep competitive.
This week I had a chance to substitute for Teacher Gao to tutor three of his students who needed help in Chinese. All of them felt difficulty in studying Chinese. When I was teaching them, I found that they are actually very smart kids. Especially a girl name Phoebe, she asked me to help her review the lessons. When we are doing the reviewing, I can just feel her making improvement. What a bright girl! Every time we repeat one word, she could improve her pronunciation immediately. Good job, Phoebe!
In EFZ, when a student comes to me for help, I will always reflect on my teaching. Is there anything I haven’t done enough for the student? What can I do to improve my job? I enjoyed talking to my students whenever I am busy or not. Sometimes we need to slow down to think. The most important thing for a teacher is still teaching, I think.
Well, we have much bigger classes than Peddie . Every class includes more than 40 students. So I think the kids in Peddie are lucky. The class is small, your teacher can pay more attention to every one of you.
