I have 12-year experience as a full-time MOE teacher. I have taught in SAP schools as well as primary school, hence I am able to coach from primary 3 up to Secondary 4 Exp or 5 NA.
My area of specialisation is in Science (in particular Pure Physics and Physics Science) and Mathematics (including Elementary Mathematics and Additional Mathematics). In schools, I was appointed as mathematics coordinator and Physics SPA coordinator. Hence, I am very familiar with the local syllabus as well as the GCE O-Level syllabus.
I am well-verse in various pedagogies to cater to the needs of my students. Example, for students who are more visual learners, I am able to coach them to use mind-maps in their revision for Science. The reason why I left service is to focus solely on teaching.
Usually, my students will have two-grade improvement by the end of the year, as long as they are motivated and willing to put their effort in working together with me.
I am also very patient with my students and do my best to motivate them in whatever way possible so that they will develop the interest and zest for the subjects. A small taste of success in the subject will pave a long way for the child's development.
Commitment Level I can start as soon as possible for long-term commitment.
