I have always had a passion for the humanities. In JC, I topped my level for Knowledge and Inquiry two years running. My KI teacher has such great faith in my abilities that he frequently calls me back as an ad hoc teaching aid.

Literature and English have long been two of my best subjects. I got an A1 for both at my O levels and an A for Literature in JC. I was second in the level for Literature for both my JC2 mid-years and prelims.


I work best with small groups or one-to-one. I am very analytical and methodical and focus on the methods of how to answer exam questions. My teaching style was imparted to me both from my mother (who is a teacher herself) and from my respective humanities teachers in Secondary School and JC, who regularly drilled me with past-year papers. On that note, I have quite a reservoir of past year humanities questions that I can help my students to practice on.

I am generally a very open and easy-going teacher. I find it important for students to be relaxed and not intimidated, and try to be as friendly as possible. However, I will still prompt them into discussion or help bring them back on track if they are confused or slacking in their work. I believe that I should motivate my students to want to do well, and inspire a curiousity and enjoyment in the subjects I teach.
