I am currently teaching in a secondary school. I am a Senior Teacher specialising in Biology (ST Biology). I have 8 years experience teaching Express and Normal Academic streams in a secondary school. I teach Mathematics, Science (lower secondary) and Biology. My strength is in my teaching pedagogy (art of teaching). It is important to have the knowledge of the subject but what makes a tutor effective is the pedagogy i.e. how the knowledge is delivered to the student. I employ various teaching methods to suit the learning styles of my tutees. I am firm but approachable, a balance that is difficult to strike without teaching experience.
In 2012, both my secondary two tutees scored A1 for their End of Year Mathematics Paper (they used to score a B3). I also teach primary school Mathematics and Science. I have more than 5 years experience of tutoring primary 5 and 6 students in Mathematics and Science. In 2011, my tutee scored a B for her Mathematics during PSLE (she was previously scoring within the 40-50 range). In 2012, my tutee scored A* for his Mathematics during PSLE (he was previously scoring within the 70 - 80 range). In 2015, one of my tutees who used to be scoring a B, scored an A for PSLE Science Paper.
I have had experience tutoring students from various schools i.e. Nan Chiau High, SOTA, Pathlight and CHIJ Toa Payoh, just to name a few. I am able to adjust to the teaching styles and complement the curriculum of the schools my tutees are attending.
Commitment Level I can start immediately. I commit only during weekday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays (preferably in the morning). During school holidays, I prefer to have morning tuition sessions.
