Background

Hello! I'm Jia Yi, a JC student who has just completed A levels in Meridian Junior College! As I have a long break before beginning further education, I decided to use this period to figure out my future career and do research on the many job opportunities provided. 

I do love helping people out, especially in academia. In school, I help my classmates with their homework. Therefore, I decided to put my academic (mainly Maths) skills to use and help younger students who are struggling with their schoolwork. I teach Maths the most, with the occasional Science, English and Humanities subjects if I am competent in the topics. Personally, Maths is a subject I am comfortable with teaching as the concepts and foundations can be grasped quickly and easily. With lots of practice, Maths is a subject that can be mastered.

I prefer teaching one-to-one or in a small group as it is easier to focus on a small number of students so I can clear their doubts more efficiently. My teaching style is one of a facilitator. I aim to promote self-learning and help students develop critical thinking skills and retain knowledge that leads to self-actualization. When the situation calls for it, I take on a hybrid, or blended style, which follows an integrated approach to teaching that blends my personality and interests with the students’ needs and curriculum-appropriate methods.

To encourage learning, I can share my learning experiences with my students and give them study tips and time management skills, even life skills. My message to them is they are not alone in their education journey as they have their family, friends and teachers to guide them and cheer them on. Although they will definitely encounter academic difficulties, I hope that I can help them to overcome it.
