Teacher Profile: Ms Dora Radic

Updated: Apr 1, 2021

Meet Ms Dora Radic.

Ms Dora is one of our resident English teachers and she has been part of the ME Education faculty for three years now. Although she finds herself in Hong Kong these days, it is very far away from her home country of – Croatia!

Ms Dora’s journey to Hong Kong, and ultimately to our school all began because of her passion for teaching and helping others succeed. During her own time at school, she noticed that her fellow students would often come to her for help with their assignments and homework. She began teaching part-time on weekends to see if it was something she could see herself doing professionally. She enjoyed her work so much and realised that perhaps, this was a worthy career for her to pursue. We are grateful she did because today, Ms Dora is one of our highly valued and beloved teachers. Her students adore her and her passion for helping others succeed is apparent from the moment you meet her.

ME Education was first suggested to Ms Dora by another centre owner. Following this recommendation, Ms Dora set a meeting with Mandy, our Senior Centre Manager. Ms Dora enjoyed meeting Mandy so much and believed that their visions for education were aligned. She felt at ease with Mandy and also noticed that from the moment she entered the ME Education campus, every teacher she encountered was warm, friendly, smiling and relaxed. Ms Dora realised in that moment that this was the perfect environment for her.

Once she joined ME Education full time, Ms Dora set about inspiring her students with her passion for teaching English. “I love teaching English because it is never boring” she says.

All progress is important, no matter how fast or slow. She believes language is so important, especially English language due to its global reach. It is not just a school subject in Ms Dora’s eyes. She sees the potential her students can reach by mastering the language not only in her classroom, but in their future studies as well as in the career paths that lie ahead for them.

Every teacher has their own unique teaching style. For Ms Dora, she believes every student deserves their own approach too and she adapts her unique style according to student's needs. There is no nonsense in Ms Dora’s classroom as she is highly effective at behavioural management and places a strong focus on the right way to learn. While she runs an orderly classroom, Ms Dora never loses her friendly and approachable nature. Her students know if they work hard, they will be able to play hard too! She says, “I want students to enter my classroom relaxed and treat me like a friend who's there to help them reach their academic goals.”

An average day in Ms Dora’s classroom is never the same. It’s never boring and she likes to keep it th
