Lan To has taught Vietnamese for 10 years and holds an Associate Degree in English Language from Hanoi College of Commerce and Tourism, along with a Professional Teaching Certificate from Hanoi National University of Education.
"I have really enjoyed working at Concordia as a new member of the Modern Language team. We work together to help the students learn the Vietnamese language and organize different learning activities for a diverse group of students. Each Concordia learner is unique in their own way of learning and developing. We always try our best to ensure the students are immersed in a passionate teaching atmosphere and receive our constant support and care."
Prior to joining Concordia in August 2017, Ms. To ran her own homeschooling classes, teaching Vietnamese and mathematics to elementary and middle school students. Ms. To is passionate about teaching Vietnamese as a mother-tongue language.
“In my opinion, it is important for Vietnamese students to read and write well in their own language. This is a core foundation for their future learning of new languages. I believe once students are strong with their mother-tongue language, they will more likely read and write better in other languages.”
Originally from Hanoi, Ms. To’s hobbies include doing physical exercise, spending time reading books for her two children, and organizing weekend trips with her family.
