Amin Abu Bakar
MYP Science & DP Physics Teacher
Amin is originally from Singapore. He graduated from Nanyang Technological University with a Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Physics and minoring in Chemistry. He obtained his teaching qualification from the National Institute of Education (Singapore) before embarking on his teaching career as a Math and Science teacher in Singapore with the Ministry of Education.
Before moving to Shenzhen, Amin was teaching in an international school in Jakarta, Indonesia. He has taught DP Physics since 2011 and constantly strives to improve his teaching practices. He strongly believes a teacher in the 21st century needs to equip students with the necessary information literacy skills and help them make sense of the vast information they have at their fingertips.
Amin incorporates technology in his lessons and gets his students to be comfortable with the use of dataloggers and sensors in his classes. His students are able to corroborate information from traditional textbooks through practical activities which strengthen their conceptual knowledge. Amin also likes to build lasting bonds with his students and it is little wonder he still keeps in contact with many of his students even after they have graduated.
In his free time, Amin likes to travel and spend time with his friends and family.
