An enthusiast in the fields of Economics and Geography, Ivan Chang was a former top student in Human Geography at Temasek Junior College. His desire and passion to impart his vast knowledge of these 2 subjects have seen him accumulate up to 4 years of teaching experience, taking on an array of students from Secondary to JC level. Currently, he is completing his Masters in Finance with the USA based Institute of Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) while pursing a Business Degree at the Singapore Management University (SMU).
Economics and Geography being extremely complex subjects, many students find it difficult to interpret most of the crucial principles. To tackle this issue, Ivan incorporates his own set of custom, tailor-made notes into every lesson. These extensive notes are divided to suit each individual student’s needs; they are tweaked and modified accordingly to match integral essay components which enable the student to grasp the key points and obtain higher points during exams. His teaching style also makes use of real-life examples to better illustrate graphs and concepts to struggling students. It is a tried and tested method that has never failed to guarantee results.
Another unique feature which Ivan integrates into his classes, is his ability to accurately analyze and spot upcoming examination questions, he will set up his own custom mock paper for his students and allow them to go through a trial run in a bid to better prepare them for their exams.
To find a tutor like Ivan that pays so much attention to details is exceedingly rare, he is a truly remarkable tutor, and students can be assured that with his guidance, they will definitely achieve excellent results.
