What inspired you to pursue teaching? My interest in teaching started when I was in college in Singapore. The scholarship from the Singapore government covers tuition, dorm, and some basic living expenses. To supplement my spending (for things like movies on the weekend, trendy clothes etc.), I became a tutor for middle school and high school students, in math and physics. With my help they did well in their O-level and A-level exams (under the British system), and got into their desired junior colleges and colleges. Some of them kept contact with me long after their graduation even as they worked into their careers in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Dubai, New York, etc.

It was incredibly rewarding to help students undertake intellectual labors they had never encountered and help them flourish. At the same time, I am cognizant of where we stand as a country, politically, seeing institutions of information and education like schools and libraries being disparaged and undermined in their missions. Being in a classroom, I want to train my students to think for themselves, think deeply about themselves and the world around them and how they contribute to a more conscientious self and equitable community.
