Background

In is often said in communications that it is not what you say but what your audience hears and understands. In it's essence, teaching is nothing but a form of communication - where knowledge is tranferred from the teacher to the student.

Having been a tutor during my NS and university years, I have learnt that the most important thing is to build within the student both an interest in the subject as well as a desire to improve. Students often approach subjects they are weaker at with a sense of dread and trepidation and that needs to be overcome first and foremost in order to excel.

My proudest moment as a tutor would have been when a Vietnamese student of mine achieved an A1 for her English at the O levels. Must of the credit had to go to herself though for she put in a great deal of effort but seeing her taking in my feedback and improving with each session before finally achieving her results was truly a moment to savour.

My 6 month stint teaching GP at ACJC a couple of years back was also an eye opener where I learnt firsthand how an all-encompassing subject like GP can be broken down into managable packages and taught holistically. The need to update and share with and interest the students in the world at large, while helping them formulate coherent and balanced arguments is critical to doing well in GP.
