Background

Do you have a hard time with Chinese, Maths & Science at upper Primary and Secondary levels? Fear not. With proper guidance, good learning atitude and constant practice, you can help yourselves overcome your learning obstacles.

I have almost a decade of tutoring experience. I <br />discover that the family background and school <br />environment are critical factors influencing a student's performance, besides the right resources and academic help available.

I use the MOE syllabus <br />(http://www.moe.gov.sg/education/syllabuses/) as the <br />basis of my tutoring.

I recommend 2 books for teenage students: 1) "I am Gifted, So Are You" by Adam Khoo on study techniques; 2) "Secrets of Successful Teens" also by Adam Khoo on teenage lifestyle. Both books are sold in Popular stores and available for borrowing at libraries.

First, I find out what the strengths and weaknesses of the student are in the subject. I aim to maintain the strengths and improve the weaknesses by focusing more on the fundamentals at first, and subsequently more practice. At the same time, I instill the student's interests in the subject. In this way, the student will both improve in studies and like it at the same time.

Generally, a student will need about 3 months to work on the subject's fundamentals and a further 3 months of constant practice to see results. Hence, I recommend a minimum tuition period of at least 6 months for student's sustained improvement. A family should engage a competent tutor within the first semester, so that the student can have enough time and practice for good final exam results.

Students feeling distracted, i guess either they are tired or lose interest in what they are doing. Different students need different methods to teach. because they have different behaviour. not fierce but need to be firm on tasks assigned n make sure student completes n understand what r taught.

I LIKE STUDIES AND I HOPE TO INSTILL INTERESTS IN PURSUING EDUCATED STUDIES IN MY STUDENTS. I AIM TO IMPROVE MY STUDENTS' LIFESTYLE, ACTIVITIES AND HABITS THAT LEAD TO A BRIGHT FUTURE, WHICH INCLUDES ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE.
