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.
Excellent lesson! We went into a bit more depth of how to read Thai language :)
In my past month with Yew, I can confidently say that I can start reading Thai independently! We will be starting grammar in the next lesson :) I'm so excited to try out what I've learned when I move to Chiang Mai!
Great 1st lesson and very easy to understand. Feeling very confident i will be having a conversation in Thai very soon.
Another great reading lesson! We went over ending consonant sounds this time.
