Experience/Remarks

I'm an English Specialist with lower sec English and English Literature teaching experience at Maris Stella High (Sec). I've a letter of commendation from the ex-school principal in recognition of dedicated service.

I was previously with Times Publishing Limited and Educational Publishing House as a senior editor, specialising in the publication of textbooks as well as assessment books. Part of the scope of my work involved liaising with the Ministry of Education to ensure correct content of school textbooks. I've also held positions such as Public Relations Manager and Hotel Marketing Communications Manager. All these years of working experience as well as the courses I'd taken at the National University of Singapore have instilled in me the discipline and skill to practise the use of correct English at all times.

Through the years, I've tutored many students ranging from P1 to JC2. As such, I'm familiar with the requirements of the General Paper as well as with the new format of the PSLE (wef 2015) and O level (wef 2013) English exam papers. I've also taught foreign students from countries like China, South Korea, Malaysia, India, Vietnam and Cambodia. I find tremendous satisfaction when I see the obvious improvement in my students' results, especially when they're able to gain admission into a highly rated secondary school or junior college based on their stellar results. I've also conducted enrichment classes at Ai Tong Pri and Nan Chiau Pri Sch.

Commitment Level

Tutoring full-time and writing on a freelance basis constitute what I do now as this gives me the flexibility to spend more time with my children. Furthermore, teaching is a profession that I enjoy tremendously. It is certainly a privilege to nurture young minds and help them to be the best that they can be.

My students have generally responded well to my method of teaching and this has greatly helped them in understanding their subjects as well as improving their school grades. In addition, it is also my practice to provide constant feedback to parents with regards to their children's progress.

As I have a mature overview of life, good values and morals are important to me. I am also responsible, meticulous, resourceful, organised as well as result-oriented and will endeavour to do my best to ensure that my students make good progress in their studies. I believe that every student is different and will thus modify my teaching method accordingly to ensure productive learning.

Being a mother myself, I fully understand the challenges faced by parents in engaging good and reliable tutors for their children in this very demanding and competitive education landscape. As such, I aspire to teach as long as I can, besides drawing on my experience to make learning fun and a natural process. It gives me great satisfaction to see my students improve academically through the years and become passionate learners in life.
