Max Komlos

我來自加拿大,在1995年來到台灣。自安大略省的麥克瑪斯特大學畢業後,我曾在校內體育部門擔任行政工作數年,在來台灣展開我的教育生涯之前,亦分別在加拿大及南美洲教過英語。我熱愛教學也在ACES渡過許多美好時光,我們的職員和學生都是最棒的。

Originally from Canada, I came to Taiwan in 1995. A graduate of McMaster University (Hamilton, Ontario), I stayed on with the university for several years after finishing my studies, under the employ of the Department of Physical Education. Prior to beginning my career as a teacher in Taiwan, I had taught English in South America as well as in Canada. I have always loved teaching and have found the role of a teacher to be extremely rewarding. Working at ACES has proven to be wonderful. Our staff and students are the BEST!

Etienne

嗨,我是Etienne。我在加州的舊金山附近出生和長大。我高中畢業後來到台灣,2009年在台灣大學讀書。我的母親是台灣人,父親是比利時人,我有三個弟弟和一個姐姐仍住在加州。我來到台灣是對生活的另一種看法,誠如您所見,我喜歡這裡,我想留在台灣生活。為了實現這點,大學畢業後我就在台灣軍隊服役,現在我是正式的台灣公民了。之後我來到了ACES,我真的很喜歡與學生及家長們互動,也非常喜歡在和孩子共處的環境下工作,我會盡力幫助他們發揮最大的潛力!

Hey there, I’m Etienne. I was born and grew up in California, very close to San Francisco. I came to Taiwan after high school to study at National Taiwan University in Taipei in 2009. My mother is Taiwanese and my father is Belgian and I have three younger brothers and an older sister who are still living in California. I came to Taiwan for a different view of life and as you can see I love it here and I wanted to stay and live in Taiwan. In order to do that, after graduating from university, I did my duty in the Taiwanese military and now I am a full fledged citizen. After serving my year long service I wound up here at ACES and have been having a great time teaching and interacting with students and parents since. I truly enjoy working with children and I will try my best to help them reach their full potential!

David

我是David,我在台北出生,四歲時移民到美國。從那時起,我在加州的帕羅奧圖長大,於2012年從德克薩斯大學聖安東尼奧分校畢業。我為自己的多元文化背景感到自豪,並且很榮幸能夠幫助ACES的孩子成為更好的全球公民。

在課堂之外,我喜歡打籃球、踢足球、閱讀和旅行。能夠在ACES教學是件很幸福的事, 因為這裡的學生和家長都是如此快樂和激勵自己每天努力地往卓越邁進。我承諾會提供最好的教學,並且幫助孩子不管在校內或校外都能成為最好的人!

I’m David. I was born in Taipei, Taiwan and immigrated to the United States when I was 4 years old. Since then, I was raised in Palo Alto, California and graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2012. I am very proud of my multicultural roots and consider it an honor to help Taiwanese kids at Aces to become better global citizens.

Outside of the classroom, I enjoy playing basketball and soccer, reading, and traveling. Being at ACES has been a true blessing because the students and parents are such happy and motivated people who strive for excellence every single day. I promise I will provide the best teaching possible and help your kids become the best they can be, inside and outside of school!
