I was previously a contract teacher with a tuition centre in the north east area (kovan).
Privately, I had 14 students. Of the 14, I would give one of many success stories. Clement Chai had made a leap from a C6 in Science to A1 within 12 hours of lesson in the final lap for his Sec 3 Streaming Exams in EOY 2012.
I admit I do have limited experience of 4 years, but I do make up for this lack of experience with being an effective and strict teacher as I have freshly left school and understand the strategic thrusts of Cambridge and what kind of answers they are exactly looking for.
I have also aligned my specialty to English and General Paper.
The following trick is what sets me apart from other tutors. This is not an corny trick like "love". This is one trick that really works. That is, REVIEW. Many tutors, too often, forget to review. They run through papers after papers and wonder why students keep getting the same old mistakes. I have to agree that review does take up precious tutoring hours, but THIS IS WHAT THAT WORKS! Only when students understand where they've gone wrong, can they make it right!
Commitment Level I am available to teach for the next 5 years.
I specialise in General Paper and English not only because I can acutely assess what is lacking in each individual that is stopping them from getting the A.
However, I am not only committed in helping students get the A. I want to change the way they write, to make them more convincing and confident writers. This is a life skill that I want my students to be equipped with, even after they graduate.
All these commitments are subject to the condition that the student is him/herself committed, as no tutor will work out well if student is not willing to commit. Above all, I am known (amongst my friends through peer-tutoring and ex-students) for being able to ignite this excitement in writing. This is probably the key to getting the student to even start committing himself to the tuition.
