Background

Currently a secondary school teacher, I specialise in teaching Mathematics and Music at the secondary level. I did teach English Language for more than four years too.

My passion is actually not in school-teaching but in small groups. Teaching students in the Mendaki Tuition Scheme and SINDA STEP Programme was heartwarming, especially when I managed to motivate them to put in effort and try their best without giving up. I am proud to say that my tuition students have surpassed my expectations of them and have moved on to better pastures.

At work though, I have been known to be the teacher whom students would respect because I give them respect in return. My methods of making rapport with students stem from my experience as a student myself. Students warm up to me easily, and approach me with their problems and concerns. Being one of the few teachers who treat students like young adults, students find themselves working hard in all their subjects, and put in effort in my subject. This has earned me many accolades in inspiring students to go past their limits to hit their goals.

My interests lie in technology and music, but I have been careful not to let my interests be my occupation. However, I used to arrange music for four-part choir and concert band in the past on a voluntary basis. My band-arrangement of the Tampines Junior College anthem is still in the band-library since the alumni-band performed it during the 20th anniversary dinner (2006). My electronic orchestration of the Sengkang Secondary Anthem is still in use today, and has been since 2012.

Armed with a Master's of Science degree in Business Information Technology, I am now ready for a managerial position in the education, IT or business industry.
