It’s been a long time coming, but I would like to sincerely thank you for your guidance and teaching during one of my most academically trying times. As is often said, the full impact of a teacher may not materialise in one’s lifetime alone. Hence, I cannot even begin to thank you for the help that you have rendered me, but I hope that the fact that I did well to score an A for Economics in my A levels in 2011 is a start. =)
As a teacher, you were very patient and understanding, trying your best to cater to the needs of individual students. I feel that the thing that helped me to learn the most was how interesting you made Economics seem. The countless news articles that you went through with us made me see the usefulness and practicality of the subject.
As a person, you are equally inspiring. Up till today, I am amazed at how fast you reply a text or email. It shows me just how passionate and dedicated you are to teaching. As a student, I aspire to learn not only what is being taught. I am inspired by the level of dedication that you show and aim to one day emulate that. Unfortunately, seeing how long it took to write this short passage, I haven’t been too successful. Nevertheless, your lessons are very memorable for me and I was glad to be able to attend them.
