I possess 6 years tutoring experience and 2 years full-time teaching experience at secondary school. I have taught at major tuition centre chains as well for 3 years. I enjoy relating to adolescents whom I teach through a balance of discipline and personal humour while delivering lessons.

Through my experience teaching and tutoring the students who were weak in English in one way or another, I am able to assess the areas that students need intervention in, especially grammar and vocabulary as the foundation to the other examination skills. Drilling in these skills is combined with students active participation in discussions over current affairs, so as to build their confidence in expressing themselves fluently in English and developing analytical thinking. This is in line with the new English syllabus that expects students to have knowledge in diverse topics related to current affairs and their social experiences.

I have especially been effective in coaching students who are weak in English/learning English as a foreign language as I have improved their grades often from a fail to at least a pass or a good pass within less than a year.
