Background

I have strong interest in maths and physics since I was in secondary school. I believe that if one wants to master in science or math, he should never memorize the laws and formula by rote. I prefer to deepen students' understanding by using graphical illustration and mind maps which enable them to understand those abstract principles by establishing a imaginery model in their mind. with this technique, they will be capable of solving any similar problems independently. Besides subject teaching, I also have my own understanding on time management methods such as pomodoro technique and some exam tips which I can share with students and help them to survive over the stressful period. 

In short, I enjoy the process of teaching and was happy to see that my juniors, who have adopted my methods improved tremendously in their physics, math and chemistry. I am also looking forward to see your child’s improvement under my tutorship.

Reviews

  • She's a very great, helpful & patient tutor. Not only is she friendly but she's very engaging too! She would put in 100% effort in her teaching by clarifying my doubts, giving tips for better understanding & using life examples which I can relate to easily, making it easier for me to understand.
