My name is Kaien Ma, and I graduated from university in 2015, majoring in nutrition.
In August, 2016 I came to Qinghai Seng Girls School. Since then I have been volunteering as the school’s English teacher, teaching students from grade three to six.
Being a volunteer teacher has always been my desire and passion and to dedicate my own hands somewhere that is needed. When I found out that the Seng Girls School needed English teachers, I came here without a least of hesitation.
The facilities here are much better than what I imagined! There are very good teaching facilities and a functional dormitory building.
One of the biggest difficulties is the obstacle of communication. The girls’ home language is Tibetan and their second language is Chinese, of which they have limited understanding. Learning a third language is very difficult for these girls. I do not give up easily, and as I am the only English teacher here, I cannot give up. If the children do not understand, I would explain again and again. If they cannot understand this way, I use other way, or review it again after a while, and leave them some time to digest the new information.
I want to bring the child, not only book knowledge and extracurricular knowledge, but also the criteria for life and the ability of self-learning. I hope to stimulate their learning potential toward their dreams, to be an excellent person and contribute to society!
