Experience/Remarks

I am an NUS Law student and graduate of Raffles Institution, where I was repeatedly on the GP Dean's List. I taught GP, both at a tuition centre and privately, from October 2013 to July 2014. I believe that the critical and evaluative thinking skills, which I seek to build in my GP students, are also necessary to live an intellectually curious and discerning life and defend oneself from deception or misrepresentation.

While the examination format necessitates focus on certain topic areas, I prefer to use them as vehicles for the practice and enhancement of logical and argumentative skills. Comprehension sessions will focus on close reading, finding out what the question demands and answering it accurately and precisely.

Of course, the above is impossible without a strong grasp of the English language. Hence, Secondary School students, especially those intending to move on to JC or even pursue University education at all, should ensure that their English is sufficiently proficient. In teaching English, I will focus on eliminating errors in weaker students, and enhancing expressive capacity in stronger ones. I will also introduce students to the critical and evaluative skills and habits that will be used in GP in JC, so that they will not only improve their performance in argumentative essays, but will also acclimatise more quickly to the JC GP curriculum.
