Bob MacLeod

自1997年起就在台灣教英語的我,來自加拿大東岸新伯倫瑞克省,擁有教育學士學位,教書可說是家族傳統。閒暇時我喜歡騎著自行車在台北郊外地區逛逛、 打棒球、曲棍球、或是到處旅行。看著學生由開始學ABC進步到能夠自己寫出一篇作文,是我在教學中得到的最大樂趣。

I have been teaching English in Taiwan since 1997. I’m from Dalhousie, New Brunswick, which is a small town in eastern Canada. I come from a family of educators. My father is a retired principal and my sister is a teacher in Canada. I have a Bachelor of Education from the University of New Brunswick. In my free time, I enjoy cycling in the hills surrounding Taipei, playing hockey, baseball and traveling. My greatest enjoyment comes from watching my students’ progress from learning the alphabet to being able to write a composition on their own.

大家好,我是Daniel,來自美國北卡羅來納州的一個美麗小鎮,2005年在坎貝爾大學拿到歷史學位後,因為對於體驗新文化與交流、以及學習新語言的渴望,我決定在2006年來到台灣,並藉由英語教學來實現這份渴望。而這是我一生中做得最棒的決定!在ACES當老師讓我感到驕傲,我和一群非常優秀的老師一起工作,且不遺餘力地幫助我成為一位更好的老師,我相信我的教學技巧會因此在ACES達到最高的境界。想上我的課嗎?趕快來登記吧!

Hi everyone. My name’s Daniel Ray. I was born and raised in the beautiful small town of Cornelius, North Carolina, USA. I earned my B.A. in History from Campbell University in 2005 and was eager to experience a new culture, learn a new language and share my own culture with others, so in 2006 I decided to come to Taiwan to fulfill these desires through teaching English. It was the greatest decision of my life. Being an ACES teacher makes me proud. I am surrounded by a group of amazing teachers who have a lot to offer and have helped me become the teacher I strive to be. I know that my teaching abilities will be pushed to the highest here at ACES. I look forward to teaching you!

Kris Lovett

哈囉!我是Kris老師。我來自科羅拉多州的巨石城,位於美國洛磯山脈丘陵上的美麗城市。我喜歡爬山健行、露營、攝影、旅行及體驗世界各地的文化。我畢業於北科羅拉多州大學,主修國際研究、副修國際經濟關係。畢業後,我決定來到台灣開創視野、學習中國語言及認識台灣當地的文化。搬來不久後,我便開始了我的英語教學生涯,能夠幫助學生們精進英文、進而達成他們的人生目標,對我來說是一件非常有意義的事。同時,與學生以及關心他們的家長們一起努力,讓我感到非常開心。我很驕傲我是ACES教學團隊的一份子,大家課堂上見囉!

Hello, my name is Kris Lovett.  I am originally from Boulder, Colorado, a beautiful city in the foothills of the American Rocky Mountains.  I enjoy hiking, camping, photography, traveling and experiencing new cultures from around the globe.  I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 2009 with a degree in international studies and minors in economics and international relations.  After graduation, I was brought to Taiwan by my desire to broaden my knowledge of the Chinese language and Taiwanese culture.  Soon after arriving, I knew that Taiwan was the place for me and I started teaching English as a second language.  I take great pride in helping students achieve things that they only dreamed were possible and opening up a world of opportunities for them later in life through English.  Teaching at ACES has really given me the opportunity to work with individual students and their parents to help make these dreams come true.  I am proud to be a member of the ACES team and look forward to seeing you in the classroom.

Trey Gregory

嗨,我是Trey老師。我出生於美國印第安那州的特雷霍特市。在2006年我自密蘇里大學的國際關係研究系畢業。2009後,我搬來台灣並開始教授英文。在這段期間裡,我教過各個不同程度的學生;從幼稚園幼兒發音一直到成人商業英文等。我很開心能夠看著我的學生,由無法完整說出字句,成長提升至能完整併流暢地進行會話。ACES是個非常專業的團隊,我很欣喜能夠成為其中的一員。

Hi, my name is Trey Gregory.  I was born and raised in Terre Haute, Indiana, USA. In 2006, I graduated from the University of Missouri with a B.A. in International Relations. I’ve been living in Taiwan and teaching English here since December 2009. During my time here I’ve taught a wide variety of students; from phonics to kindergartners to business conversation to adults.  It’s a great feeling watching a student, who can barely speak anything in the beginning, progress to the point where they can have a full conversation in English with no difficulties. I’m very excited to be a part of this talented group of teachers here at ACES.

He graduated from the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana in 1997 with a B.Sc. in Psychology part of a lifelong fascination with education and how to become a better learner.

He believes that one of the greatest gifts he can offer as a teacher is to help students develop understanding of their own learning process and in doing so help them develop personal responsibility and self-confidence.

Daniel Chan

大家好!我是Dan。我出生於加拿大安大略省的倫敦市,我在西安大略大學(UWO)主修食品營養學,並得到了市場行銷學士學位。我的父母來自香港,我會說英文、中文和一些廣東話。我的教學理念是基於幫助學生培養獨立自主、時常自省、且努力不懈、茁壯成長為更好的人的概念;「給孩子魚吃,不如教他釣魚的方法。」

我很榮幸能成為ACES大家庭的一員,在這裡教學的時候,我都能感受到來自學生家長及其他老師們的愛心、協助及奉獻,藉此幫助學生們能有自信且有效率地用英文溝通。在空閒時間,我喜歡練習巴西柔術、跳搖擺舞、玩桌遊和閱讀。

Hello everyone! My name is Dan. I was born and raised in London, Ontario, Canada. I majored in Foods and Nutrition at Western University (UWO) with a post-degree diploma in Marketing. My parents are from Hong Kong. I speak English, Mandarin, and some Cantonese. My teaching philosophy is based on the concepts of helping students foster self-reliance, practice regular self-reflection, and develop a never-ending drive to grow and thrive. “Give children a fish, they’re fed for a day. Teach them how to fish, they’re fed for life.”

I’m proud to be a member of the ACES family, where on a daily basis I can feel the love, support, and dedication from parents and my co-workers which help our students communicate confidently and effectively in English. In my free time, I enjoy practicing Brazilian Jiujitsu, swing dance, playing board games, and reading.
