I have 7 years of experience tutoring maths from any level, mainly Upper Primary, Secondary and JC maths. My students had improved from their original grades of B-E to A-C in their PSLE, C5-F9 to A1-B3 in their N/O levels and also C-E to A-B in their A levels. Being familiar with the maths syllabus, I am confident in helping the students improve their understanding in difficult topics. My teaching methods generally vary according to the level of understanding of the students. After knowing more about the weaknesses or problems the students are facing, I will adjust my teaching method to suit them. I believe in consistent practice and exposure to more questions instead of drilling concepts after concepts into the students. This is so that they know how to apply the concepts that they have learnt to solve different maths problems. I also teach students how they can approach a maths problem by analyzing any hints given in the question. This is most useful for weaker students who might not know how to start the solution at all. All in all, together with consistent revision and effort on the students' part, I believe they will benefit greatly from my tutoring. It is a great pleasure to be able to help more students boost their confidence in maths. )
Commitment Level I can start any time provided the tuition timing and location suit my schedule. Once tuition has started, I can commit as long as the students need me to.
