I enjoy teaching students and watching their wonder and satisfaction as they understand new concepts. I was able to experience this during a six-month teaching internship under MOE, where I taught Lower Sec Math and Science and Sec 3 O Levels Chemistry under the mentorship of experienced teachers.
I am patient and acknowledge the importance of repeating and explaining a lesson in a new way so that my students understand it. For example, I have used analogies and practical demonstrations for some of my weaker Math students to understand fractions clearly. I also believe in understanding clearly the goals of my students beforehand so that we may work together towards a common aim. As such, I set smaller stepping stones for them. A case in point, one of my students wanted to get an A2 for her finals. I suggested that we work towards achieving a B3 for her common test first. When she managed to attain this goal, she was much encouraged.
Other than my internship experiences, I have/am tutoring Lower Sec Math, Science, Sec 3 and 4 O-Level Chem, EMath, AMath, Physics and JC1 H2 Math. In the recent O Levels, a student scored A1 and A2 for EMath and AMath, up from B3 and F9 and another scored A2 for Physics, up from B4.
Commitment Level I am available to start tuition immediately. Please kindly refer to my schedule for my available timeslots.
