A PROFESSIONAL TEAM.
At Twinkle Mapo, we care about the quality of our classes. We hire the best teachers who are trained before they start to ensure lessons are taught at the highest standard. Our teachers are native English speakers from South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States. Our teachers are not only hired based on their skills, but their character also.
A Team of Professionals
The first candidates are selected through a thorough background check with their Resume/CV, cover letters, and demo teaching videos. All of our teachers are picked from the seven English speaking countries. We require our staff to be experienced teachers. All of the teachers who are picked go through background verification and must have a clean background.
Candidates who are chosen go through multiple in-depth interviews to review their knowledge and experiences. Only the best candidates reach this stage. We make sure these candidates exceed our expectations and will provide the students with the best education. We hire teachers that not only are dedicated, caring, knowledgeable, and fun, but ones that will challenge our students and push them to their potential and help them grow well.
Our teachers go through in-depth and extensive training upon arrival to the academy. This training is conducted with both the managers and other experienced teachers to ensure the quality. They learn about our values and vision, special teaching methods, curriculum, and program. During this time, the teachers also starting building their foundation and bond with the students.
The learning never stops for our teachers. To ensure the best quality, we continue to provide support to our teachers through a variety of ways. This includes:
1) Weekly meetings with abundant discussion and shared ideas
2) Thorough in-depth training sessions throughout the year
3) Regular in-class monitoring and inspection
4) Quarterly teacher evaluations
We always continue to grow and develop.

Dr. Yong Tae Kwon
Hello everyone. I am a research scientist in biomedical sciences and drug development as well as an educator teaching both undergraduate and graduate students at Seoul National University of Medicine. Previously, I was a professor at University Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy in America as well as a research assistant at the California Institute of Technology. I graduated from Seoul National University College of Natural Sciences with a PhD. It is my belief that teaching is not just a delivery of fragmented information, but a life-wide interaction through which students are natured as both experts with specialty which cultivates them to be leaders in the society. The curriculum in the AP Academy was developed to nurture students as next-generation leaders through comprehensive interactions with highly qualified native English speakers. The students will be taught English in the context of philosophy and vision toward their admission to the university and beyond. As a research scientist and educator with 30 years of experience, I will give advice on the teaching activities here at the AP Academy.
