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.
I can confidently say that I can read Thai now! Onto numbers / sentences :)
Third lesson & getting familiar with putting sentences together. Kru Yew is a great teacher & recognises areas where i don't remember certain words & puts extra focus on certain words & phrases. Great lesson. Kawp koon mahk krap ( thankyou very much)
Another great reading lesson.
Great reading lesson! Classes with Yew are genuinely fun and interesting.
