    在线 Voov 课程 - 它们是什么样的?
    • Students should ideally use a laptop 😎- as this makes the classes more interactive and engaging, so they can make quick progress.
    • Ipads and tablets are the next best choice. 😐
    • Sadly, Phones are unacceptable for most classes. 😥
    • Voov videoconferencing app on your device is perfect for fully engaging lessons!
    • WeChat video can sometimes be ok.
    • Students will need a quiet place, a table and a chair. Many students can't use headsets or headphones accurately and can't adjust them either, so they're often a problem.
    • 理想情况下,学生应该使用笔记本电脑😎-因为这使课程更具互动性和吸引力,因此他们可以进步.

    IEL Classes Leader

    The British International School Shanghai 上海英国国际学校

    Nord Anglia is the foremost International Education provider across the globe.

    Initially, a classroom teacher, I held very specialist roles with specific duties & at this most prestigious Shanghai campus for almost a decade. In my final 3 years, I created, organised and delivered the Intensive English Lessons for newly enrolled students.

    With little or no English IEL's purpose was to quickly enable students to access mainstream whole class learning. At year end, students took the Cambridge English Exam.

     
    Nord Anglia 是全球最重要的国际教育提供商。
    最初,我是一名课堂教师,然后在上海这个最负盛名的校园里担任非常具体的职责和专家角色近十年。在我的最后 3 年里,我为新入学的学生创建、组织和提供了强化英语课程。很少或没有英语 IEL 的目的是让学生快速进入主流的全班学习。年底,学生参加了剑桥英语考试。

    Founder, Director & Principal

    LWWines.com (aka Laowai Wines)

    Wine education, events and retail business, Shanghai, China
    I conceived, founded & evolved this innovative 'Edu-retail' business model.
    • The 'go-to' reliable & safe online home-delivery option for corporate & private clients
    • consulted for & supplied restaurants and grocery stores with premium product
    • supported charity through fundraisers and donations
    From absolutely nothing & no investment other than my own money, time & energy LWwines.com enjoyed 6 years of rich evolution & phenomenal annual growth rates, until it was time to leave SH. The whole enterprise went to a client, who was so excited to carry on the story. Sadly, the potential wasn't realised & now it is gone.
    I have the memories & some artwork. Daring to dream was wonderful.

    Kindergarten Teacher (C program)

    Fudan-Wanke Experimental Private School, Shanghai C-Program (SVKS)

    I was responsible for teaching half of the lessons to my class of 18 'bilingual' Kindergarten students learning a mixture of Chinese, US, British and Singaporean curriculum in a special programme - at the time available only to Non-Chinese Nationals within this Private Chinese School.
    The programme was in its infancy with three classes. There were few resources, no organisational structure and much innovation.
    I began a 'radical' approach of child-centred education.
    • I reorganised the classroom into zones away from the 'rows of desks' approach.
    • I introduced the soft carpet /soft furnishings area with the eager help of parents.
    • With no support funding at all, within weeks, I created a reading library of hundreds of new books.
    • I introduced the concept and the reality of integrating Educational support professionals, such as Educational Psychologists to support students.
    Unfortunately, the school wasn't ready for such innovations: I left at the end of that year. Now there are twelve classes - and a library.

    What bosses have said 老板们怎么说

    Lesley-Anne Wallace

    Headteacher at BISS, Gary's first Chinese based school appointment
     
    'experienced'
     
    "I have found Gary to posses many positive personal attributes, such as honesty, efficiency and resilience, but most profound is the relationship that he enjoys with the pupils and the passion he displays for their individual learning.
     
    He is hard working and committed to his work, with good subject knowledge.
     
    Additionally, he enjoys very positive inter-personal relations with parents of students who respect the attention he pays to their children"
     
    'punctual'

    Julian Forsey

    Headteacher at Gary's first permanent position, in the UK
    'Flexibility' -
    'Creative Thinking'
     
    "..a committed, enthusiastic, hard working and extremely able teacher.
     
    He establishes appropriate relationships within the classroom, setting clear guidelines for behaviour, and enjoys the respect and affection of the class.
     
    He plans extensively and marks work thoroughly, keeping detailed records of the children's progress.
     
    He has the happy knack of being able to hold the interest of both high achievers and slower learners. His lessons are a delight to watch."

    Don Sibley

    Headteacher at Gary's second permanent UK post
    "...a dedicated and charismatic teacher...well organised.. a teacher with high expectations... his strong principles concerning education: developing independence, social skills, offering a broad curriculum, stressing the importance of learning styles as well as improving basic literacy and numeracy standards.
     
    Gary contributed enormously to the development of IT in the school, overseeing the launch of a new computer suite.
    He especially enjoyed tasks that enabled him to use his own initiative.
     
    Gary has enriched children's lives because of his awareness of global and environmental dimensions.
     
    Gary has a lot to offer - as a human being."
