Qualifications
I am a MOE Teaching Award scholar, and I'm currently a first-year student teacher undergraduate at the National Institute of Education (NIE), under the NTU-NIE Teaching Scholars Programme (TSP). My programme of study is the Bachelor of Arts (Education), specialising in Geography. I undergo rigorous study in two areas - my subject specialisation (Geography and Social Studies), and Curriculum Studies (learning how to teach effectively).
Experience I taught a student in JC2 H2 Biology for half a year in 2017, whose grades improved from S to C (increase by 3 grades). Prior to this, I had a relief teaching stint at my alma mater, Temasek JC for a period of one month. I am currently teaching a JC2 H2 Geography student.

I believe in multi-pronged approaches to improving a student's grade. While I strongly emphasise consistent written practice, I will go one step further and guide my student in improving his/her methods of learning, focusing on soft skills such as self-confidence and resilience. I believe that inner motivation, underpinned by confidence and resilience, drives a student to aim high and do so in a healthy manner, as stress-free as possible.
Commitment I am able to commit between 2 to 4 hours of teaching per week, per student (including weekends).

My hourly rates start from

JC - $55 (JC1), $60 (JC2)

Upper Secondary - $50 (Sec 3 and 4)

Lower Secondary - $45 - $50 (Sec 1 and 2)

For two subjects per student, 50% of the rate quoted will be added (eg. Biology and Geography at Lower Secondary - $40 + $20 = $60 per hour)

For weekday lessons only, a flexible schedule is preferred (e.g. one actual day, and one "back-up" day if I cannot make it on the actual day), due to my commitments at university. Thank you!
