Path of Growth: SISU-“Southern new Ivy”

–Shanghai Thomas School


Graduated from Shanghai International Studies University (SISU) and Vanderbilt University, Tingqing has degrees in Business Administration, English Literature and English Education. Years of study in some of the world’s best education institutes has implanted English into her professional pedagogy. After leaving campus, her interest in English language learning and teaching never waned. While at Vanderbilt University English Learner Center she had the role of assistant teacher, where she designed English courses for spouses of the university’s community. During her time here, she also provided free counseling services for disadvantaged immigrant students at a local public high school. This counseling work included developing necessary knowledge in career preparation and academic writing skills.


After returning from the States, she earnestly joined the big family of Shanghai Thomas School and became a teacher. Her expertise in teaching earned her praising from both colleagues and students.



因材施教:

将英语学习的钥匙交给学生 



谈庭青老师英语功底扎实,并结合数年的教学实践,熟谙英语学习的本质及国内外英语类考试技巧。在上海托马斯实验学校的教学过程中,她所教授的课程非常注重国内特点和国外特点的融合。


基于自身经验与教学实践,她深刻认识到传统的英语教育无法让学生在英语学习上真正取得成功。英语学习的本质可以借用乔布斯名言:“求知若饥,虚心若愚”,无论是阅读英语刊物书籍,还是观看英语影视纪录片,永远保持对语言、对语言所传达的万千世界的好奇与渴求,才是通往成功的大门。因此,她会在课内、课外为学生提供来源多样的英语教材,既有严谨的科学和人文学科,也有轻松的文化娱乐内容。她的教学风格亲和耐心,注重为学生创造真实语境,提供精心选材。在培养学生的语言能力的同时,帮助学生掌握正确的英语学习方法和思维。


此外,她非常注重言传身教,以自己的学术能力与行为风范为学生做出榜样与示范;在传授知识的同时,关怀每位学生的成长与成才,成为知识的传播者和文明的传承者!


Teaching Students in Accordance of Their 

Aptitude: Handing the Key to 

English Over to Students


With a solid foundation in English and teaching practices combined, she not only understands the essentials of English learning, but also test-taking tactics. During her teaching in Shanghai Thomas School, her classes highlight the integration of methods from home and abroad.


Based on her experience on learning and teaching, she has deeply realized that teaching to test won’t lead to students’ success in English. As Steve Job’s famous quote goes; “stay hungry, stay foolish.” It is the same with English learning. May it be reading English printed publications, or watching English films, always keeping the curiosity and desire for language is the doorway to linguistic mastery. That’s why she would introduce various English materials for students both in and outside of class, which not only includes academic readings on science and liberal arts, but also more casual materials focused on culture and entertainment. She is patient and approachable, and focused on providing materials that are both thought provoking as well as enjoyable. In addition to helping students to develop the right learning method, she put great emphasis on cultivating independent learners. 


In addition, she pays great attention to teaching by words and deeds, and sets an example for students academically. While imparting knowledge, she cares for the growth and success of every student, and becomes the spreader of knowledge and the inheritor of civilization.



屡创佳绩:

最大限度挖掘学生的潜力  


谈庭青老师希望学生能够充分发挥自身的创意与潜力,主动从各方面深入了解学生:课堂上,谈老师总能敏锐地感知学生,精准把握教育契机;课堂下,她乐于参与学生活动,帮助上海托马斯实验学校的学生实现全面发展。

 

在今年9月,由上海教育国际交流协会和爱尔兰驻上海总领事馆共同主办举办的2019“三叶草杯”上海市中学生英语演讲比赛中,她带领我校学生完成了戏剧创作项目。从脚本创作、道具制作、服装采购、媒体制作等方面,她既给予学生充分的自主性,也提供必要的指导。在大家的共同努力下,学生们取得了比赛优胜奖。今年12月,由她所辅导的学生在上海市高中英语竞赛获得了佳绩。


“我们每个人都是上海托马斯实验学校的一部分,就像默默停留在荷叶上的水珠,但我们合在一起,就可以变成一道溪流,汇入江河湖海,发光发热。”我们正是有这样一群默默奉献的“园丁”,这样一种合力,促进了这所学校每天都在不断成长、不断进步!


Consecutive Awards: 

Maximizing the Potential of Students


Tingqing hopes that every student can have abundant opportunities to pursue their creativity and potential, and thrive outside the classroom. During class, she is considerate of students’ needs and would seize every educational opportunity; After class, she is willing to participate in various student activities, in order to help students achieve all-round development.


In the “Shamrock Cup” English speech contest organized by Shanghai Education International Exchange Association and Consulate General of Ireland in Shanghai, she directed the students to complete the drama project. Along with teacher’s guidance, students had substantial autonomy in composing script, making props, purchasing costumes and creating multimedia. With everyone’s joint effort, the students have achieved spectacular results in the competition. This year in December, one of her students came in third place in the English Contest for High School Students of Shanghai.


“Each of us is part of Shanghai Thomas School, just as a glowing drop of water resting on a lotus leaf. When joined together, the drops can converge into a stream that flows into rivers and seas." The school has a group of dedicated "gardener” as such, who worked together to promote the continuous growth of the school every day.



在她看来,英语不是一本教科书,更不是一场考试,而是开启精彩未来的一把钥匙!


From her perspective, the value of learning English is worth more than a test score. Rather it is a key to opening a wonderful future!
