CHINESE TEACHING OPPORTUNITIES AT DAS
If you love Chinese and are confident in your command in Chinese; if you want to be part of this rewarding process of imparting your love for the language to the next generation, help learners overcome their difficulties, and open their hearts and minds to a different way of appreciating and experiencing the world around us,
WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN OUR TEAM!
DAS started its Chinese Programme in 2010 and is the only non-profit organisation in Singapore currently providing support to Chinese learners from 7 to 15 years of age with dyslexia. Our programme follows the Orton-Gillingham teaching approach and aims to support students in becoming independent learners through
i. targeted and progressive equipping of our students with specific skills and strategies, and
ii. nurturing of our student’s confidence and interest in the Chinese language.
If you join us, you will find out that there is indeed such a group of children in Singapore, who continue to persevere in the learning of the Chinese language, in spite of the additional and continuous challenges and obstacles they face. We believe that every child has his or her own learning strengths. By applying the right approach and guidance, equipping him/her with the necessary skills and strategies, recognising every achievement and step forward, and developing his/her confidence and interest in the language, every child can overcome the challenges arising from dyslexia. This is the meaningful and critical role that Chinese Educational Therapists play.
JOIN OUR TEAM!
If you join our team, you can look forward to:
¨ systematic training on teaching strategies in Chinese and language proficiency;
¨ intensive and sustained mentoring to help you enhance your teaching skills;
¨ a host of opportunities to participate in activities beyond teaching, e.g. curriculum development, school and public awareness talk, language tests, workshops, research – to help you expand your horizons and develop competencies beyond teaching alone; and
¨ getting to know a group of diverse, interesting and supportive team members.
You are required to possess:
ü interest in the Chinese language;
ü willingness to help children overcome difficulties in learning Chinese and build their confidence;
ü perseverance, resilience, ability to work in a team, and love and patience for children.
