Experience/Remarks

Teaching Techniques..

Other than practicing past year papers, my teaching techniques helps students to understand key Mathematics concepts and remember formula more effectively using basic Principle of Memory/ Mind Mapping. To enhance my students learning, I also complement my teaching with audio-visual aids via selected Internet videos. These techniques are very well-received by my students.

My Portfolio/Experience..

I have been tutoring for more than 10 years since my undergraduate and Master degree days in NUS, specializing mainly in secondary school mathematics.

I believe the key to achieving good grades is understanding and having a solid foundation. Hence, I always train my students to pen down summary notes after learning each topic and share effective tips on memorizing formulas. Teaching gives me great satisfaction and I believe the right teacher makes a great difference towards the students learning.

Majority of my students make good progress in not just the grades, but also the attitude and studying method. After all, todays education is not only about academics. Parents believe that instilling the right character and values are equally important too. My academic certificates are available upon request.

Value-Added Service..

As a value-added service, I also help students trouble-shoot their computer problems and I offer parents the option of allowing their kids to learn additional IT knowledge and skills during their school holidays.
