I have just graduated from a 6 year Integrated Programme (IP) School, River Valley High School.

I have always done well for my humanities, constantly attaining high percentiles relative to my peers. My passion for the different subjects have also propelled me to join various competitions held for them. Also, i am taking H3 Literature for my A levels to further my study of Literature.


I have no formal experience currently, but have always been helping my friends with General Paper, Literature and History. Feedback is quite positive with improvement but i will not claim full credit because i am not on a formal tutor assignment. My teaching method revolves around breaking down the complexities of essay writing into easy-to-follow specific pointers that aim to help a student improve. Also, i focus on developing the student's own abilities (question analysis and content picking for example) and at the same time stepping in to provide the necessary content to enhance the student's writing in short, my teaching style is simply one that suits the student best. I understand the frustrations of writing an inadequate essay despite putting in much effort and i am happy to help the student improve upon that through targeted and detailed guidance.

Commitment Level

I can start asap and will be able to do so until May next year before i am enlisted. However, if the tuition timing is on weekends, i will be able to commit for at least 2 years.
