Experience/Remarks

Tuition is more than teaching, it is about coaching

Thank you for taking the time to review my profile.I am a full-time private tutor with 9 years of experience specialising in secondary school math (lower sec math, A math, E math) and the sciences (lower sec science, physics, chemistry, combined). Prior to this, I had cut my chops in Hwa Chong Institution and the highly competitive NUS Industrial Systems Engineering Faculty, earning straight distinctions in all my mathematics and science subjects along the way (O levels, A levels).

To me, tuition is more than teaching, it is about coaching. Teaching is a one way street where the emphasis is on the teacher. Coaching on the other hand, is a two way street where the emphasis is on the student. I teach, observe the student, provide and receive feedback and customize my teaching style for the student. Coaching is also not only about teaching or clarifying concepts, but about equipping the student with critical thinking skills that is crucial for real life success. This is unfortunately, not a strong point of Singapores education system.

In other words, I sincerely hope to embark on a long term journey with my students and see them grow into confident, mature thinkers with a rock-solid foundation in the math and sciences. Parents play an important role in this journey as well, and I am more than pleased to keep parents constantly updated as we grow together on this journey.

Commitment Level

From 2018 on wards, I will only be teaching small group tuition. I am confident I will be able to help your child even better in a small group setting.
