Hello! I am Zarith, an English and homeroom teacher at VIS’s, KL campus.
English literature has always been a passion of mine since high school and has been a mini escape from my previous day job demand. A dual master’s degree university rank holder MSc (Management) in Operation and Project Management and Graduate Diploma in International Marketing from the renowned Deakin University of Melbourne, Australia and Asia e University of Malaysia.
Working as a part-time lecturer in a higher institution, has been an eye opener for me to improve English proficiency among the youth. Since I began my journey in teaching and realising the essential need of the world’s first language command, I have discovered my ability and set of skills to contribute my knowledge in English to the future generation. I am known for my bubbly, vibrant and energetic character. Quoting William Arthur Ward, “A warm smile is the universal language of kindness”. If you see someone without a smile, give them yours. I bring positive vibes and diplomacy in the classroom, as well as to people around me. One of my aspirations is to expand the body of knowledge in hope to pursue a PhD in English Literature in the near future.
I am Wong Swee Moy, the Science and Mandarin teacher of VIS , KL.
Teaching has always been my passion since young. Being able to create curiosity and the urge to learn further in an inquisitive way motivate not only the students but also myself to go on and on amidst various challenges. I guess this is the basics in learning, whether in Science or languages.
Having a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Chemistry from Tunku Abdul Rahman University College, I am gratified the school has given me a chance to teach Mandarin besides Science. I enjoy teaching Mandarin as a foreign language as I take it as a cultural exchange with our students because we believe in interactive learning.
As the new school year gets underway. I would like to formally introduce myself.
