About 

Christopher is an Australian born teacher/ trainer who grew up in Brisbane, South-East Queensland.  For the last 15 years Chris has been involved in teaching, in many different forms.  While in Australia, he primarily taught adults the art of public speaking in Toastmasters, however since arriving in Taiwan in 2007, he has found that he also has a strong talent for writing and teaching younger students how to write well.  

Combining all his strengths, Christopher now teaches both business owners and teachers in Taipei, Taichung and Kaohsiung.  Students readily embrace his teaching style and he feels extremely proud when he can see that his students are doing well.

He is a humble person, a good listener, coach, teacher, improvement oriented, a good communicator, execution minded, patient, can work both independently and with others in a team. 

 

Progressing even further forward, Chris is using the following models for inspiration, and hopes to one day open his own school -

Creativity, balance and innovation

Increasingly, even the Asian educational tigers are realising the drawbacks of a pressure-cooker academic system and turning to countries like Finland, with its short school days, minimal homework, and focus on play, free time and outdoor-based learning as a model (though Finland’s recent slip in academic standings should not be overlooked, Buckingham warns).

Schools around the world are realising the importance of fostering creativity, adaptability and out-of-the-box thinking: from the Steve Jobs School in Amsterdam where all students receive iPads fully loaded with apps to guide individualised learning, with the goal of getting children designing their own education, to Brightworks, where children get dirty, play with fire, and deconstruct home appliances, to the Zoo School in Michigan, which runs an intensive year-long program where students feed zoo animals, raise salmon, sample water and go on camping trips alongside classes in forestry, astronomy, zoology, chemistry, and physics.

For students who are not necessarily academic, innovative hands-on programs include the Big Picture Learning system in place in 55 US schools, where students learn in the real world, are paired with mentors, and work on projects connected with their interests, from fixing cars to starting a business.

 

 ________________________________________________________

 

 While Teaching Reading, Listening, IELTS, TOEFL and Speaking to Adult Students, Chris regularly receives positive feedback

 

 

Chris also uses a full Online Interactive Student Testing, Tracking & Training Program.  Students receive an individual login and both parents and teachers can monitor progress.

 

Giving back a little time to Volunteer is an important part of balance for Chris as well

 

While working in Taiwan Chris also decided to give something back to the community that made him feel most welcome.  When the opportunity came up to assist the local school with their student reading program, Chris didn't hesitate.  Volunteering in another city has truly been a rewarding experience for him. 

  

                   


 

A Self started project

 A student tracking database that allows teachers to monitor and track student progress as they move through their textbooks, highlighting strengths, weaknesses and associated teacher comments.  The goal is to identify any areas that a student finds difficult at the early stages of their development and give them the extra assistance that they need.

Identifying that many of the students in Taiwan are struggling with their English writing,

Chris developed some online courses in Narrative and persuasive writing.
