Experience/Remarks

(1) Tutoring experience

I have 15 years of tutoring experience and have tutored many students from top schools to neighbourhood schools. All of them were inspired and started to develop interest in the tutored subjects. They eventually obtained distinctions in the O-Level Exam.

(2) Teaching philosophy

My method of teaching is to simplify the concepts for the students to understand. I emphasize learning by understanding and not learning by memorising. I use the students pre-knowledge to build on their current new concepts so that the students will find it easy to accept and understand. I can link A Math and E Math topics well so that the students are able to see that learning A Math and E Math is not a chore but two easy subjects to learn.

I am trained in the Cambridge marking and able to share with the students how to score through their workings in order to gain the maximum marks in the O-Level Examination.

Students commented that my worksheets are useful to them and they like the worksheets very much as it is very easy for them to use it for revision. As a current secondary school teacher who is passionate in teaching the subjects and helping the students, I am resourceful in getting the right materials for the students to help them learn well and improve.

Commitment Level
