I believe that every student has a potential to excel in their final exams under proper guidance. Many students memorise the working steps without understand the true meaning of it, let alone their applications. Education is not all about memorising and throwing the formulas into the exams. It is about grasping the fundamental concepts and learning how to apply it when being tasked with challenging questions. However, some students may be weaker at relating to these fundamentals concepts and applications, therefore my aim is to guide them in doing so.
I have been tutoring since 2009 and have around 4 years of teaching experience. Having taken 11 students so far, I am proud to say that many of them have shown significant improvements in their exam results. Initially, they started with mediocre results but they gradually improved as time passes. For example, I had a Primary 6 student was was averaging 40 marks for both his Maths and Science paper. However, he showed a leaped improvement by scoring 63 marks for both papers during his prelims. Another Secondary 4 student had beeing scoring around 60 marks for his A Maths and Chemistry while he was in Secondary 3. Subsequently, he excelled in his school prelims by scoring 72 marks for his Chemistry and 85 marks for his A Maths.
A tutor can only assist a student up to a certain stage. He can only clarify doubts and explain the proper concepts. Ultimately, it is dependent on the student's diligence and willingness to learn.
Commitment Level I am currently working. Though I may not be free during the day time. that does not stop me from providing quality guidance and tutoring to my students during my free time. I am generally free during weekdays evening and weekends.
