Background

I decided to become a full-time tutor after graduating from NUS as I would like to help students who may be struggling with school to strive for improvement. I have more than 3 years of experience with both upper and lower Primary students in subjects including English, Mathematics, and Chinese. I have 12 students at the moment, and I specialise in Mathematics.

I adopt a 'step-by-step' approach when it comes to teaching, as I believe that having a strong foundation is the key to learning. Nonetheless, I believe that 'it takes two hands to clap' - students themselves have to be willing to learn and pay attention to what has been taught in order for private tuition to be effective, as well as for them to benefit from the lessons. It gives me a sense of great satisfaction and achievement when my students understand the concepts that I am trying to bring across.

I am also currently giving Conversational Chinese lessons to two girls from America who are here with their parents for a 2-months vacation. I will also be teaching an Australian working adult Conversational Chinese from mid-September onwards. My students will start by grasping the concept of Hanyu Pinyin and learning how to pronounce words accurately before they start learning how to form sentences correctly. I take pride in my teaching style when my non-Chinese students are able to speak properly and with confidence like how a native Chinese would.

Last but not least, I aim to build rapport and become friends with my students so that they will look forward to, instead of rejecting the idea of, every lesson.
