Dear Wenjia,

Overall this is a good Philosophy of Teaching statement. You have a clear thesis that focuses on affective factors- creating a safe classroom environment.

The paper begins with you stating the reasons you believe impact learning- including confidence and the Chinese educational environment that results at times
in a lack of interaction. This is a good way to start, and shows good organization- to provide some background into the context.

You describe the kind of environment you want to create- welcoming, and friendly and describe how you will connect with students in order to encourage
learning. In this section your sources are fine, but examples are very simplistic in building general rapport. Can you think of how this is connected to language

In the next section you describe how you would implement a lesson- both in planning and delivery (PPP and Simple Six). Again, the descriptions are general-
and it would be good to provide more specific examples of reference to TESOL methodology (theory) as part of your approach towards teaching. You need to
include more evidence to support this part.

Overall good statement.

Very best wishes on your future teaching!
