Meet Teacher Marno!

Marno Profile

My name is Marno van den Berg, but in Thailand I’m better known as teacher MJ. I’ve been living and teaching in Thailand for more than 2 amazing years. It can be challenging to find words to describe yourself sometimes, but my students recently told me that I’m a great teacher if that counts. I’m a young open-minded South African with a thirst for knowledge. I believe that we receive countless opportunities every day to influence people positively in different impactful ways.

When I was about 6 years old I had a compassionate teacher that made me feel confident, comfortable and motivated. Her delicate teaching techniques were very effective. I dedicate my life to influence each and every one of my students similarly in a fun teaching environment. I believe that with persistence and patience everything is possible in this remarkable journey called life.
