Born in Vietnam, Thuy (pronounced “Twee”) and her family immigrated as refugees to Australia when she was 6 years old. As a bilingual speaker, she grew up in Sydney where she graduated with a Bachelor of Education from the University of Sydney. Thuy was a Lead Teacher at St. Euphemia College private school for two years.
In recent years, Thuy has focused on freelance tutoring and childcare, working intimately with parents and kids from a variety of different cultures. She is excited to be a part of the IST community where her goal as teacher is to inspire students to be lifelong learners that endeavor to inquire, analyze, and act beyond the classroom. Thuy adores working with children and believes in fostering an engaging and fun learning environment where each child can explore and thrive. She is a firm believer in kindness and compassion.
In her spare time, Thuy enjoys traveling, trying new cuisines, movies/anime, photography, painting, and reading. As an avid traveler, she has explored the world over…many times, and has lived in various cities including Sydney, London, and Orlando.
