Founder, Taiwan Homeschool Advocates

Tim Chen is the founder of Taiwan Homeschool Advocates (THA). Tim and his family have appeared in the media in Taiwan, Hong Kong and China to share their experience of homeschooling multicultural and multilingual children in Taiwan. Under his auspices, homeschool law in Taiwan has expanded from just one line in the Primary and Junior High School Act to two dedicated laws plus comprehensive amendments to 10 other relevant laws.

Tim and his Polish wife Dorota have been homeschooling their 18-year-old daughter, Zosia since 2002 and subsequently added their 13-year-old son Jas and 5 year-old daughter Ania to their multilingual and multicultural home school—the Babel School. They have co-authored a book titled My Home is an International School – Raising Global Kids. Tim and his family are frequently invited by government agencies, universities, corporations, churches and parent groups to talk about their homeschooling experience. More information is available on the family's blog or facebook.
