Hello! My name is Nguyen Thien Hung and I love Apollo English! My lessons are interesting and I have made lots of friends in my class. In my first class at Apollo, I was very quiet. I was too scared to speak English, but my teacher was really kind and made me feel comfortable. She said it's OK to make mistakes. I started to speak more, and now I love speaking English all the time and almost never make mistakes.

The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.
If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.
The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book.
Your mind is your most powerful tool, and like any tool it needs to be used, calibrated, and upgraded: never stop learning.
Seeing my students' progress fulfils me.
I love it when you learn.
Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn.
Change is the end result of all true learning.
I love seeing students I have taught years ago growing up from Kindies to Teens. I also love talking to their new teachers about how well they are doing.
