I am an alumnus of Raffles Institution with a strong passion for writing and teaching, and signed up to be a tutor to accrue experience in both fields. Having taught friends and family casually since I was in Secondary 4, I helped my sister improve her English grade from a C5 to an A1 with a month of regular teaching. I am currently teaching H2 History and English Language and Linguistics at the JC level to two of my juniors.
My former teachers' methods have impressed on me the belief that learning is most effective when coming from someone who is relatable. I strive to be a personable and candid teacher, capable of both sharing the frameworks and systems I used as a student and enjoying good humoured conversation about the subject to foster sincere interest. That way, my students can enjoy both a structured sense of confidence in tackling the subject and a passion for it as well.
In Junior College, I topped the level in H1 Mathematics, and was on the Dean's List for both General Paper and Literature. I have also never fallen below the 75th percentile for either of them.
Commitment Level I have a very flexible schedule, and am free from 630pm onwards on weekdays. My weekends are free, other than 2pm-6pm on Saturdays. I can start lessons asap, but will be taking a 9 day holiday from 27 October to 4 November.
