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.
