Full time tutor with 4 years experience, specialising in English, for Pri and Sec students. Very familiar with MOE English syllabus. Especially keen and effective in helping students build a strong foundation in English by reinforcing the basics. Every student is different and learn differently. I believe in always seeking the the most suitable method to teach each of my students, which best fits their individual learning style and needs. I also help my students develop a good regular reading habit by recommending titles which best suit their interests.
My goal is to ensure that all my students enjoy our lessons and learn to love the English language/subject, which will naturally lead to an improvement in their English competency. I aim to inspire my students to overcome their fears and frustration to gain confidence in achieving better results in English.
All students improved by at least 1 grade within 1 year. Sec 4 girl improved from C5 to A2 after 1 year.
I'm also experienced in teaching students who have mild dyslexia, autism and ADHD.
Love working with children, patient, dedicated, responsible, creative and resourceful - going the extra mile.
Language enthusiast - besides English and Chinese, I'm also fluent in French (worked in France for 6 years). Basic German (studied it for 2 years) and Japanese (studied 4 years as third language for O level).
I'm more than a tutor, I see myself as my students' mentor/counsellor )
Commitment Level I can start asap for as long as required. I am committed to each student for the long-term. I'll be away from 2-9 December 2014.
