Experience I am a dynamic person that is creative when it comes to teaching methods. I have been involved in peer tutoring for primary and secondary school students. I have periodically helped weaker students in English, helping them edit their essays.

I am deeply passionate in English and Chinese and believe in a four-pronged approach in approaching these.

(1) Research and discussion into examples/articles has to be undertaken for the necessary information to write comprehensive essays. A list of common topics will be provided as a guide. (2) A set of appropriate strategies and answering techniques has to be developed to equip students in approaching comprehension. (3) Critical analysis must be used to determine the student's strengths and weaknesses. I pay attention to detail and will provide extensive corrections and comments for students' essay submissions. (4) The student's command of grammar and vocabulary has to be strengthened gradually. Students are often doubly penalised for poor expression in essays in language and content.

I can comfortably teach Humanities subjects, especially Lit, and up to Sec 4 Chemistry.

I provide piano tuition up to Grade 8.

I have 1 year of formal experience in tuition. I have helped a P6 student improve from B to A for PSLE, and spotted the PSLE composition question correctly. I have tutored a Sec 3 pupil for 1 year to date, with improvements in Literature and History. I have experience tutoring P6, Sec 1-3 and JC students.
Commitment Generally, I am not available from 1-6pm on Saturday and up to 3pm on Sunday.

I will stay beyond the stipulated time period if necessary to provide help to the student (eg. before major tests/exams) without extra charge, as the student's understanding is paramount.
