Experience
I have been teaching since I was in Poly. I love working with kids ever since I was young. I have recently been a full time tutor for over 3 years now. I have taught kids with ADHD and got the kid to be very much invlove in focusing in their studies. I have taught kids who are failing badly in Math to getting good grades for their PSLE. I have a warm subtle approach to the kids. I will work with their strengths and their weaknesses. And vice versa, I will make them feel as comfortable with me as possbile.

Experience
I'm a dedicated tutor who took my degree in Australia and hold Bachelor of Communication in Mass Communication.

Coupled with more than a decade of tutoring in English, Maths and Science since Year 2000, I am intimately familiar with the school syllabus and the changing trends of education in Singapore.

Lessons are planned and crafted carefully each week to provide opportunities for the students to grow intellectually by having thoughtful challenges and aim to build my students' self-esteem and personal success.

I believe that every child is able to unleash their full potential in their studies with the correct guidance and you can be assured that your child will improve in their grades.

My students' grades and achievements in Yr 2017/18

- My P5 student in Ai Tong Pri scored 92 marks for English, 89 marks for Science and 98 marks for Maths. She used to score 60+ marks for her exams

- My P6 student in Chongfu Pri scored 261 for her PSLE and was the top 10 in the whole school.

- My student in ACS scored A for his PSLE English and A* for Science. He used to score borderline result for English and Science

- My Sec 3 student in St Joseph made a leap improvement of 22 marks for his English

- My Sec 4 student in Paya Lebar Methodist Girls scored 1st in the whole cohort for her N level
Commitment
As a full-time tutor who can start immediately, I will work out the best learning plan and provide customisation in accordance to your child's progress. You can be assured that your child will bring out his/her full potential in his/her learning curve and bridging the learning gap.

I believe in giving a free diagnostic test (English and Maths) before the first lesson to test the student's ability for the particular subject and to ascertain your child's actual education level and weaknesses. The diagnostic test is specially customised by a reputed school teacher and is used by the school. With this diagnostic test, I can tailor an individual educational program depending on the subject to cater to the student's learning pace, thus building a strong academic base for my students.

Like all parents, I, Seah Ai Ling, am committed to see the students learn and grow into professionals.

I apologise that I have to reject parents whose child scores more than 91 marks in Primary 4 to 6 and Secondary levels, and wishes to score 100 marks. I sincerely believe that the child is intelligent and it's purely careless mistakes which can be corrected by oneself. But give me challenges if your child scores lower than 80 marks. I will put in my best effort to turn the result into a magical number that you will be satisfied with.

Please enquire the rates with StarTutor and the package comes with dedicated tutoring and full commitment to my students.

Ivy Li's Photo

7739. Ivy Li is a StarTutor Pro

Ivy says

16-18 Years of full and part time tutoring/teaching experience. Best in teaching Chinese and Maths due to academic background and strong family influence/interest.

My favourite subject is Maths, due to the ability and passion in solving and challenging problem sums. Have local and foreign students hence able to translate to other languages (Chi, Eng, Cantonese) for easier comprehension.

Experienced in teaching 1-to-1 home tuitions and small groups of 2-8 students in tuition centres and home settings.

A private O level student had borderline problems in E Maths previously but was now able to do 80-90% of the questions correctly (less the careless mistakes). He was motivated as I always encourage him to push himself when others may bring him down by saying that he may not be able to achieve. After all, my students are young teenagers, they still have time and good opportunities to excel so I hope to lead them in the correct direction. Some students can feel lost when choosing courses during Sec 2 or Sec 4, I have always advised them to pursue their dreams. They also need a lot of moral support from the people around them as well.

A sec 3 Express student had problems in A maths (logarithms) and after 1 session, she was able to solve all of them for her class test.

A sec 2 NA boy passed his Sci test (first time in Secondary) with just 1 lesson prior test date. I recommend consistencies as this is not a good habit for all students as they may rely on tutors too much during test period. My goal is to help students equip the skills and mentality to want solve problems themselves independently.

All of my ex-PLSE students passed for year 2012 and one child passed Maths for the 2nd time in her whole Pri school life.

I am here to advocate that tuition is not for life. More importantly, I am here to continuously encourage and build students' determination and hard work, so that they can be independent without tuition and to foster regular practice on their own, as they grow. I am also here to teach in a different way more suitable for your child, which the school teacher may not to able to teach according to every child's learning style.

Patient (taught 5students (Pri/Sec) with ADHD), have creative and encouraging methods to assist them improve in the subjects as I need to get their attention and make the subject interesting and interactive so that they can continue to focus and look forward to the next lesson. It is definitely better when parents are able to share more about the student's habits, likes and dislikes, attitude as it really helps to create a more engaging and fruitful lesson. I will be strict if students fail to complete homework and will relate this to parents.

I share real life experiences (when appropriate) with the students to expand their general knowledge. I have also tutored foreign students living in Singapore (from Germany, China, Macau, Korea). I frequently update and discuss with parents about their children's progress, weaknesses, ways to improve - not only their on the scoreboard but also in building up the good character. I make it a point to always guide the students from wrong to right (eg. during cases of cheating, copying, arrogance, impoliteness, etc).

StarTutor's Review

Ivy is a very professional and committed teacher. Her passion for teaching has led her to leave the corporate world in Feb 2009 to teach full time, and she already has plans to upgrade herself further in NIE and take up a full-time teaching career in future. Ivy was supposed to become a full-time Chinese teacher through MOE upon graduation from Temasek Polytechnic, but she chose not to as being a full-time Chinese teacher at that time would mean that she will not be able to teach other subjects which she has interest in, namely Mathematics and Science. Due to recent changes in MOE, Ivy will finally be able to teach all the subjects that she is passionate about, hence the decision to become a full-time teacher.

During lessons, Ivy not only tries to help students achieve better grades, she also tries to instil in them the correct values and attitude to nurture them into all-rounded individuals. For instance, she educates students who are inattentive by telling them that their parents are actually using their hard-earned money to pay for their tuition, and that it is their responsibility to study hard and not take their kindness for granted. She does not want her students to just simply go through the motion, but instead, she wants them to realize that whatever they are doing is for their own good, and for the sake of their own future. Ivy also makes it a point to set basic foundations right. Basic skills such as writing neatly would need to be cultivated from a young age and is crucial in character building.

When handling younger children, Ivy usually spends more time talking with them initially to try to make them feel more comfortable and to gain their trust. She is aware that younger children generally take a longer time to adapt to strangers, and thus, she does not want to spoil the child’s first impression of her by being too stern. She firmly believes that the learning potential of the child will be at its peak only when mutual trust between the tutor and the child has been built up. Ivy is also stern, only when there is a need to.

All in all, Ivy wants to help students who are already good to be even better, and aid weaker students to achieve realistic improvements. She makes it a point to communicate with parents to understand the child better, as well as to update the parents on the child’s progress. We believe that Ivy’s passion in teaching will certainly touch the heart of many of her students in future.

I believe that time management and patience is very important and I will plan my schedules ahead. Will try to get different schools' exam papers for students' revision depending on students' progress and foundation. Always try to complete stipulated tasks planned during the session so that the students can be on the track of improvement. This also requires the student to co-operate by finishing given tuition work, but will also discuss the workload if he/she has problems. I believe that self discipline in finishing the work can help push the limits of the student. I believe in consistent daily practice but not at the expense of their healthy lifestyle which should include proper rest, exercise and family time.

Able to provide extra tuition during school holidays or exam periods (upon request or I may communicate with the parents if I feel the student really needs a lot more) as those are the most crucial or best times for students to catch up on their studies N be ahead of others.

I'll make sure that the student learns and enjoys each lesson so that the teacher-student relationship can be enhanced, as it assists me in getting the student more engaged during lesson - the student listens and asks, which is more productive.Tuition is conducted in various ways, be it from books, assessments, through conversations, impromptu QnAs as students have different abilities to adapt to the the various teaching.

I will do my best to come up with the most appropriate teaching method…
