I majored in pure Mathematics in National University of Singapore. Rigor, logic and precision are my forte. I have obtained decent grades in upper undergraduate/graduate mathematics courses like Complex Analysis, Modern Algebra and Mathematical Logic, which gives me the ability to pinpoint any mathematical mistakes, however contrived they may seem, and explain them in a clear manner.
I have struggled with Mathematics when I was in primary five and six but it was through the invaluable help of my tutor that my performance in Mathematics showed significant improvement in secondary school and I was offered to read Additional Mathematics at 'O' levels of which I attained an A1 and L1R5 of 9. This fuels my passion in helping academically less inclined students to surmount their challenges in Mathematics and possibly appreciate the beauty of Mathematics. In addition, I attained A for my H2 Chemistry and H2 Physics at 'A' levels.
My tutoring experience includes tutoring a group of secondary three normal academic students from a neighbourhood school and a primary five student from a renowned school in Mathematics. Hence, given my exposure to a variety of students with vastly different mathematical inclinations and attitudes towards learning of Mathematics and my own unique experience in primary school, I can empathize with challenges faced by students in Mathematics and devise appropriate methods to help explain difficult concepts to them. In addition, my firm
