Originally from Taiwan, Crystal enjoys working with children and regards her teacher role as being a nurturer to her learners; helping them bloom into their full potential. She believes one of the key aspects to education is to look at children as an individual; understanding their various characters and needs to acquire language skills. In other words, "differentiation" is her belief and is consistently working towards mastering this strategy. Outside the classroom, Crystal loves the outdoors. Hiking, kayaking and travelling are her favourite things to do during her leisure time. Reading novels and studying European history are also her hobbies.
