Background

Graduating from Commonwealth Secondary (L1R5: 6) and National Junior College (5 As), I was awarded with a MOE teaching scholarship to major in Physics at the National University of Singapore, after which I completed my post-graduate diploma (with Merit) at the National Institute of Education.

Drawing from years of teaching experience in heartland and independent schools, I believe in establishing a dynamic connection with my students to facilitate effective learning and bring forth their intrinsic desire to excel. 

Using my knowledge of students’ different learning styles, I then employ a methodical and pedagogical sound approach whilst customising my lessons based on the students’ requirements. 

Applets, simulations, demonstrations and videos are used in addition to mnemonic techniques and question tackling skills. This ensures a deeper and more meaningful understanding of abstract concepts, as well as more satisfactory exam results. 

The majority of my students in recent years have achieved excellent grades (92.3% Distinctions and 100% Passes) in national examinations, whereas some have shown tremendous improvement (F9 to B3 in 3 months before the O’Levels).
