Experience/Remarks

Having been a student myself, I am familiar with the syllabus and the demands of school. Math and sciences are my strong suits, which spurred me to take up a higher level course in H3 physics at NTU whilst studying for my 'A' Levels, eventually earning a merit in addition to my core subjects. I enjoy learning, and I hope to share this joy with those whom I teach.

As for my teaching styles, I prefer a targeted approach to strengthen the weak points in the student's understanding of the subject rather than simply flooding the student with assignment questions. Simply practicing exam papers is helpful but not efficient and it takes a toll on the student's already busy school schedule, and so the focus instead should be on understanding the content. With proper understanding of the subject, it is highly possible to jump several grades when it comes to tests or exams, something that students often find very rewarding for their hard work.

I have had the opportunity to teach O level Math, physics and chemistry (combined sciences). I have also taught students who were taking O levels at secondary 5 after completing their N levels. I'm happy to have received recommendations from parents, and glad to know that my lessons were useful to the students.

Commitment Level

Though I am usually free on weekday nights and weekends, I have a flexible schedule and would be able to cater to any time throughout the week if necessary.
