Hello, My name is Sasiwimon Kaewdee. I am 33 years old. I am from Chiangmai, Thailand. My nickname is Yew. My students call me “Kruu Yew” (Kruu means teacher). I love to travel and meet new people, especially foreigners, from whom I can learn about places around the world. Travelling around the world is my dream.
I hold a Bachelor of Sociology and Anthropology Program from the Faculty of Social Sciences, Chiangmai University. I started teaching Thai in 2009. I teach private Thai classes and sometimes I exchange Thai with any native speakers in Chiangmai.
I have been volunteering as a Thai teacher at an organization called Thai Freedom House since 2010. Thai Freedom House is a non- profit organization which educates Burmese refugees in Chiangmai which made be become known as “Kruu Yew”. Furthermore, I have been teaching Basic English to Thai people.
Sociology and Anthropology was my major and I studied History as my minor. I will apply my knowledge of Thai history and cultural to my teaching. Besides learning a language, in my class students will enjoy Thai humour and interesting current affairs and also learn Thai history and culture.
Moreover, students are able to design their own class for example conversation, speaking, pronunciation, reading and writing.
We had a fantastic lesson! Yew helped me make sentences and challenged me appropriately with what she thought fit my needs. We had a lot of fun discussing the Thai language culture as well :)
This was a great introductory lesson to the basic Thai expressions! I would like to learn more how to read / write so my pronunciation improves. I don't want to get into the habit of reading roman characters!
Yew makes learning Thai fun, and I look forward to learning more from her in future lessons.
Yew makes learning fun. I don't remember lessons at school being like this!! I'm booking more
