Ruan Du Preez
I’m a South African born, New Zealand Educated and Asian experienced teacher.
I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning from Massey University, as well as a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education from Auckland University of Technology.
In addition to my more traditional teaching background, I also have international experience teaching English in China.
I see myself as a teacher that brings topics to life for students. I want to pass on my passion and help encourage a deeper understanding of content while combining it with the relevance it has to the real world. I strongly believe that today’s schools and higher education institutes are not adequately preparing their students for the real world. They are also failing to harness the immense power of the internet in general and social media in particular. Missing out on it’s ability to reach millions of students on their own terms.
