Dr. Xu Hao obtained his bachelor's degree in Medicine from the School of Public Health of Fudan University. He studied at Umeå University Sweden for seven years in pursuit of his master’s degree and PhD in Molecular Biology. His doctoral works have been published in SCI journals. Being equipped with comprehensive medical and biological knowledge, he joined Shanghai Thomas School. So far, he has more than three years of teaching experience in AP, A level/IGCSE Biology.
Dr. Xu has solid background in Biology, coherent structure in teaching, as well as the ability to explain complicated biological theory in an easy language. In addition to teaching knowledge, he puts more emphasis on teaching students the efficient ways to study. His class always requires the active participation of all students, and he has been working hard to make them feel joyful and “time flies” in class. At the same time, the biology curriculum he is developing at Thomas school also aims to integrate the domestic and international characteristics. Currently, relying on the platform of Shanghai Thomas School, he is trying to establish the advanced molecular biology laboratory, the goal of which is to prepare for the future development of personalized biological projects and to achieve the goal of in-depth learning of biological subjects.
As a homeroom teacher, Dr. Xu practices the word "respect" in class management. He is openminded to students' opinions and ideas and understands students' diversity. Meanwhile, he also advocates the class should be "managed by systems and rules, not by people". He has formed and improved the rules for the use of electronic equipment and dormitory management. In the process of continuous improvement of the class, students gradually develop awe and active compliance with the rules.The road of one's growth is always long, arduous and full of challenges, and the formation of virtuous character is not achieved overnight. Mr. Xu believes that as a teacher, we should be alerted to seize every opportunity to educate the students, teach them the way to learn and help them to shape a great personality.
"Pay close attention to the students, care for them, and become the beacon on their way to success" ——this is the unremitting pursuit of Dr. Xu as a teacher of Shanghai Thomas school.
