Background

My tutoring style is to creatively support my students in improving their grasp of the English Language (including Literature and General Paper) with relevant use of various media and online tools from roleplay, personal recounts, news to Facebook, Wiki, Edmodo, Google Apps to Youtube videos, pop music and movies.  As I understand each student's interests and unique learning styles, my worksheets, teaching methods and media selection will be fine-tuned to suit each student. It is vital to boost the student’s confidence so that they can connect and apply what they have learned. My goal is to equip my students with effective life and study skills so that they can become responsible self-directed learners who can set and achieve their own learning pathways. 

I was a NIE-trained teacher with St Margaret’s Secondary School from March 2008 to June 2012 teaching English, Humanities and Elements of Business Skills as well as managing a major role in the school’s ICT committee that included leading the IT training sessions for students, teachers and administrators. Since 2001, I have been guiding students on one-on-one basis except during my stint as a full-time teacher from 2008-2012.

I I have also been tutoring P6 Science for 6 years.
