Background

Proven teaching methods to help students score in GP, Economics and Business Management subjects, developed from verified materials and years of experience in MNCs and tertiary educational institutions. Vast experience in helping others develop and apply strategic thinking to various situations. Passionate about teaching and proven track record for grooming students with learning difficulties. I am particularly good at interacting with teenagers and younger adults, and enjoy helping them discover and learn. During my time as a senior lecturer in Temasek Polytechnic. I created on-the-ground experiential problem solving. This provided students with the rare experience of exploring problems through primary research, face-to-face interviews with subjects and simulated situations. I believe that young people learn best through discovery. The basis of good critical thinking has its roots in individual discovery and exploration. When helping students with GP, Economics or Business subjects, my approach is to help them enjoy thinking critically and analysing situations. I have discovered that once the problem solving skills are made to be enjoyable, an individual will always cling to them and use them over and over. I have coached Indonesian and Laotian students in English. This is why I enjoy being a teacher/tutor. It is the opportunity to help others learn and discover their potential that is so enriching. As a tutor, my focus is to help the student cope with the exam requirements and to help them score. This includes teaching them how to read the passage and pick out the key points, and how to read every question carefully and meet the required criteria. As well, I teach students to time themselves through GP I and II.
