Mr Carlo
Year 1 Teacher

Born in the vibrant city of Johannesburg, South Africa, I am Carlo Gertzen, an educator with a rich tapestry of international experience. I hold a Bachelor of Science from Stellenbosch University in Cape Town and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education. My professional qualifications are further enhanced by a TEFL certification, a Cambridge English CELTA, and a World Rugby Coaching Children qualification, reflecting my commitment to a broad and dynamic approach to teaching.

After my graduation, my desire to see and experience more of the world led me to begin my teaching career in Asia. Since 2016, I have embraced the opportunity to teach in various cities across the continent, including Huai'an in China, Tainan in Taiwan, and multiple locations in Vietnam such as Tam Ky, Ha Giang, Hanoi, Thanh Hoa, and Ho Chi Minh City. This journey has granted me nearly 8 years of invaluable experience in diverse educational settings.

The most exhilarating part of the educational process for me is fostering active involvement and self-discovery in students. Encouraging them to engage deeply with their learning material and to ask questions not only facilitates a better understanding but also promotes respect and learning from one another. This approach is fundamental in education.

One of my proudest professional achievements was in my fifth year of teaching in Ha Giang, Vietnam, where I co-founded a new English Center. This venture rapidly grew, attracting over 300 students in just three months and soon looking to expand. In China, I had the honor of developing the curriculum for an international kindergarten, a challenging yet immensely rewarding task.

Beyond my professional pursuits, I am an enthusiast of cultural exploration and sports. My travels across different countries have not only shaped my teaching methods but also enriched my personal growth, providing me with a profound understanding of diverse educational environments and student needs.
