I joined Apollo in 2019 and working for the Van Quan center has been a very enjoyable experience for me. It has been almost 2 years now and throughout this time I’ve gotten the chance to work with a lot of inspiring teachers and managers. I get to teach a group of willing-to-learn kids, and, of course, not without challenges, it has been extremely rewarding. Besides that, I am able to discover new methods and ways to make lessons more interesting and fun as Apollo gives me the creative freedom to structure my own lessons. I am definitely considering staying with Apollo longer because I’ve loved the atmosphere, my colleagues, and the students so far.
Apollo is able to offer one of the most appealing work environments to me as an expat. A teacher's room full of like-minded individuals that wish to make a positive impact on the lives of their students; A team of educators from all over the world, coalesced in one place, all free to express their beliefs and cultures. I consider myself one of the luckiest to have found a multicultural environment all in one place and it's the place that I work.
During my time working at Apollo, I have noticed a discernible improvement in my teaching skills. On-the-job training in the form of challenging experiences and assignments not only with various age cohorts (Kindergarten right up to IELTS) but also with various Apollo centres spread across HCMC; regular in-class observation and day-to-day query feedback from my line manager; the truly unique courseware from Apollo world… all make teaching challenging and interesting to me.
Apollo not only focuses on the fundamentals of proper English coupled with proven steps towards fluency, but we are providing today's students with new and exciting ways to apply that knowledge to an ever evolving world. In addition, an Apollo teacher is one that is invested in making a positive impact on today's world. We are consistently being upgraded, motivated and enhanced via monthly in-class training courses and online programs that help us better understand today's student-teacher relationship. Apollo teachers will have the opportunity to further their education with CELTA and DELTA training that is fully supported by the Apollo Brand.
The pandemic has brought huge challenges to us all but at Apollo we have adapted and developed new skills in a short period to ensure continued access to education. Our innovative activities in online classes not only delivered a lesson to our students, but also created a space where we all could play, laugh, share, and see other people during the lockdown. I am excited for the future of education and will not stop improving to create a more effective, blended learning system.
