At an early stage during his 20 years in Japan, Tristan discovered a student-centered learning curriculum, and fully embraced this unique and challenging method of teaching English. This methodology prepared him well for the next stage of his life - fatherhood.
In this episode, Tristan shares some tips on how to foster in children a love of learning, as well as some of his experiences trying to implement a curriculum completely opposite of the norm not only in Japan, but most of the world.
A lifelong student himself, Tristan's love of learning is apparent when you listen to him explain the merits of student-centered learning, and a goal-oriented lifestyle. I learned much from him during my time as teacher at Rainbow Bridges English Academy, and I hope this conversation with him will inspire others to help young students embrace a love of learning.
