Tutor Profile Darius Ng 5 years teaching experience, highly specialised in teaching 'O' level English and Humanities( Social Studies, History).
Greetings, My name is Darius. I started out teaching O level English during my trainee days while serving in OCS in 2010. Since then, I have taken 4-5 students in O level prep each year, alongside my job as Asst Editor and Writer in Mindef, Army News. My writing prowess also extends to the field of corporate communications, where I have held full time positions in corporate communications as well as freelance writing assignments. This is where I can confidently teach formal writing, and I have, even to working professionals. Besides formal writing, I have also been teaching continuous writing across different genres. **With the shift in emphasis towards Expository themes in the O level English Paper 1 continuous writing section (based on the new syllabus), I have been preparing my students o excel in the face of change through grasping the key planning skills required to construct balanced and sensible viewpoints, and objective arguments. In my profile online, I have penned down my approach for paper 2 as well, which has proven to give my students the skills yield consistent results. Overall, all my students have scored well, mainly A1, A2 if they have followed me for at least a full year and were diligent. My weakest student who started with D7 in EL managed a B3 .
