Biography

Gus left Saigon, Vietnam, at the end of the Vietnam War. Born to parents of Vietnamese (mother) and Chinese (father) origins. He grew up, was educated and worked in Sydney, Australia, his entire life. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in Information Technology (IT). He spent the majority of his career as an IT professional, working for some of Australia's largest public, private and government organisations in industries such as insurance, finance, transport, utilities, media and health. He specialises in Cybesecurity, developing strategies, overseeing security initiatives, transferring knowledge and intellectual property and managing global teams across multiple regions.  Inspired by the vision and commitments of founder Ms. Thao Chi and the ABVN foundation teachers, the ABVN platform connects and enriches students and teachers with a common goal of learning. ABVN students are curious and determined learners. Students may not have realised this, but ... "I benefited more from learning about them than they do from me, such as their lifestyle, culture, educational system, regions, transport, food specialties, aspirations, and the list goes on." Basically, what he terms "the circle of knowledge" of Vietnam. Gus enjoys being active, especially in fitness activities such as participating in sports and following a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Here are a few of his interests, not limited to this list: Animals, cars/motorbikes, construction, economics, fitness, food, gardening, hiking, investments, movies/films, music, science, sports, streaming, technology, travel, and volunteering. He is married with three kids and resides in Sydney, Australia.

Testimonials

Focus of teaching

Conversational and examinational English, writing, pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, IELTS/TOEIC and the use of technology as a learning tool. Gus has no English teaching experience. "For me, learning English is about exposure to words, conversations, sharing stories, learning from each other, and most importantly, having a bit of fun. I certainly enjoyed the lessons I have had with ABVN students from July to December 2023."
