I spent most of my life in Singapore, where having to grow up in a vast knowledge-interconnecting country set a good foundation for me to satisfy my thirst for knowledge. Subsequently, it stimulates my yearning to understand how our body works and compel me to study life sciences. During my undergraduate year (Major in Life Sciences, Specialisation in Biomedical Science, Minor in Geosciences) at National University of Singapore, I was a recipient of the NUS Kent Ridge Undergraduate Scholarship and was on Dean's List in the Faculty of Science for four semesters. Additionally, I was also working as a private home tutor. I have tutored eight students from secondary schools or junior colleges (from 2011 to 2014). As a private tutor, I could customise and accommodate my lesson plan to adapt to the learning style and pace of the individual student. Furthermore, I liked to motivate my students in their studies to work towards their future aspiration and the combined effort paid off when my students improved (Best grade improvement for H2 Biology from "Ungraded" to "B" for GCE A level examination within six months). Similarly, I also volunteered to mentor my undergraduate juniors in life science modules where all of them gave positive feedbacks and thus, encouraged me to go into a teaching career. Hence, I decided to become a full-time teaching assistant at National University of Singapore to teach life science modules to undergraduates (from 2015 to 2017).
Commitment Level I can start A.S.A.P. and will be able to do so until this end of this year.
