A BRIEF INTRODUCTION

Tim Van Der Merwe (pronounced: fun duh ma va) was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. The most “out of Africa” story that he enjoys sharing is that his grandmother used to have lion cubs as pets when she was a little girl. He is also an accomplished photographer and musician. This is his tenth year teaching, and his second at Chadwick International.

COMMENDATION

I was honoured with a commendation from the Korea Association of Foreign Language Academies, the national body regulating and overseeing the privately owned language schools and academies for the whole of South Korea.

I received the commendation for dedication to the students of Paju, the city that I was working in at the time, and for my years of service to the school
