Hello! I'm Charmaine. I've wanted to teach for a long time; I've always really enjoyed helping students find something that they have a passion for. I grew up in Hong Kong, and there was always a lot of pressure to always get good grades and then end up with a socially-acceptable career. At school, I saw how badly this pressure affected my classmates and I. But when I got to University, I decided to start learning for my own enjoyment, taking classes that I wanted to take, and it was liberating. I also decided to start volunteering back at home, teaching secondary school students things subjects they might not otherwise encounter (like Aesthetics), whilst also encouraging them to learn things that they enjoyed. Seeing the happiness this gave them was so encouraging, and it made me want to continue volunteering and teaching in Scotland! So, here I am :)
