Experience/Remarks

I have 14 years of physics and science teaching experience and 6 years of coaching and counseling work. I emphasize much on conceptual problem solving using heuristics. I often use technology to engage students, individual and in group tuition, to enhance their understanding and interest. As a trained counsellor and coach, I focus in developing students' potential and motivation in how to achieve performance and success in general.

I am a songwriter and I provide songwriting and guitar coaching and home-based music production coaching. This is very suitable for beginners even without musical training background but interested to write and produce your own songs.

A Sec 4 RI student's testimony

'I have benefited greatly from his tuition lessons, improving my average marks by about 25%, from the early 60s (B4) to mid 80s (A1). His lessons, while covering the contents of the syllabus, have the distinctive edge of allowing the student to gain a deeper understanding of the concepts involved. He showed me how several science phenomena are interlinked, and can be understood from simplest beginnings and steps.

Besides this, he is also concerned about the students welfare, at times discussing and encouraging me to pursue additional interests. He not only helps to guide students through their academic endeavours, but also their future goals in life. I believe that he is able to bring out the best potential from within his students, and he is an important mentor figure to
