I am a mathematics specialist tutor with 10 years of experience (6 years of part-time private tuition and 4 years of formal group tuition). I co-founded a tuition centre in Singapore's neighbouring region which focuses on Singapore and O/A level Cambridge Syllabus. Most of my students come from an international school which conducts (primary) school syllabus approved by the SEAB and it is also an approved Cambridge examination centre.
I am able to handle students with various competence levels, and I adjust my teaching style accordingly as every child is unique in his/her own way. I focus on building up the fundamentals amongst the weaker students and I can also appropriately challenge the mathematically inclined students with non-routine and application questions. Having worked with over 75 students over the years, I've come to believe hard work is as equally important (if not more than) as talent/gift.
While my lessons tend to be light-hearted and I am very much approachable and responsive to questions, I also take firm stand when the need arises. Students under my charge improve their grades within a year, and I take great pride and joy to see my students do well or develop an interest in mathematics.
Commitment Level I can start in June 2016, and commit till the end of the academic year. I will be most happy to continue the tutelage should the student/parent is satisfied and time schedule in the new academic year allows.
