I recall when I was a child, I did not read much. I was common as a child born in the eighties, particularly in Hong Kong. However, I was brought up in a different way as compared to other children. My mother mentioned that after she had read me the English names of different objects from a toddler training kit, that is, a vocabulary book, to me, I was able to match objects with their names properly while she repeated them in the streets. I was just a baby from my mother’s recollection. This may as well be an evidence of a heavenly gift, I guess.
I have little reminiscence for my childhood. Not until my father bought me a collection of Mathematics books that I started defining the feeling of ''passion''. I was engaged in improving different skills through the consolidation of any knowledge that was mathematically related. I gained more confidence through solving wide range of questions. Satisfaction built upon which, all sparks my interests to contemplate the practical uses of arithmetic and mathematics. Natural science is one of the streams of knowledge that emboldens the power of Mathematics. Mathematical tools fervidly explain scientific theories. Its strength synergises Physics theory most explicitly. I was gratefully imbued by the education I received from one of the most reputable colleges in Hong Kong. There I met some of my lifelong friends with whom I have a trembling heart of joy to talk about, with a tinge from Newton’s words, they gave me ''the joy of finding smoother pebbles and prettier shell than the ordinary on the seashore in front of the great undiscovered ocean of truth''.
After graduating from high school, I entered the University of Hong Kong to pursue further study in Mathematics. Upon receiving my undergraduate degree, I still kept in my heart the great expectation of having to explore a new horizon. Subsequently, I engaged in master study abroad, in Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. During my time there, I had, on one hand, the chance to teach my congenial classmates. On the other, to be taught by my seniors. Through these experiences, I am impressed by the eclectic approaches to the same questions. It was also a marvelous experience to influence others through teaching effectively. I wish I could enshrine those in need by conveying these different ways of imbibing mathematical knowledge, so as to ease their workload while allowing them to harness from their intellectual curiosity. I also wish to embark the development of more effective and interesting ways of learning while being inspired through dedicating in education, such as avoiding direct recitation of written theories. I regard this as a major contradiction that requires a professional balancing when adopting both Western and Oriental educational cultures.
I am equipped with a strong will borne in mind, ever since I have returned to Hong Kong. I had, with what I have experienced in Germany, enticed students in an educational institution for three years. I, thereby, familiarised myself with the UK and IB syllabus with greatly enriched experience in handling students from different walks of lives. Han Academy is an institution of vision and mission, I am sincerely delighted to have received the great opportunity for being recognised and to develop my career at Han Academy. Being a stimulant to students to top up their learning interests and to optimise their potentials is my principle of teaching. This allows me to walk towards the front gate of this college every morning with both excitement and commitment.
