Background

Hi there!

My name is Joey, and I am currently 22 years old. I am finishing my studies soon in Psychology and I realised that I enjoy teaching or coaching. In my current job, I often have to train and coach the new staffs and it gives me a sense of fulfillment. I used to tutor my younger cousins but then they moved away and with work and school, I did not pursue tutoring, not even part-time. It was too hectic. I love the English language and also simple basic Mathematics. I used to be one of the top few students to always ace my English subject in secondary school. <br /><br />Now that I am finishing my studies, I would like to start pursuing this passion. <br />My teaching style is to be encouraging but also firm. I don't believe in yelling or scolding children. Patience is really important as every child has different teaching style. It is important to find out what kind of teaching style they adopt. <br /><br />There are children who are more receptive towards visual images (like me). They learn better when we able to draw it out and explain. There are children who are better listeners and children who needs to have an experience before they can learn. Such as outdoor activities etc. <br /><br />Understanding the child is extremely important, of course it doesn't take one or two days to happen. Making mistakes is important as it encourages learning and it is crucial to let them know it is okay to make mistakes but always be willing to learn.
