Thomas Smith (United Kingdom)
Secondary School Teacher
Tom is a UK trained teacher with experience teaching a number of different subjects. Here at Kingsgate, he’s teaching English to our Secondary students. His teaching philosophy is student centred and focuses on building the confidence and resilience of each individual student so that they feel they can succeed in completing any task put in front of them. Tom recently took some time away from teaching to study for a Masters degree at the University of Leeds, but he is now incredibly excited to be back in the classroom at Kingsgate International School. This is Tom’s first time in Malaysia and he is excited to travel, meet new people and eat as much new food as the country has to offer. In his spare time, Tom is a keen sportsperson who loves playing basketball, cricket, golf, table tennis and many other sports. Tom is also an avid geographer; he hopes to be rambling around the Cameron highlands in his spare time.
