Self Introduction

I believe in getting students to understand the purpose of learning the subject rather than merely for the sake of scoring well. In this way, they will be able to know the reason why they are studying that particular subject, and how it can help them in their future career. I usually follow the student through their Pri/Sec level. I've taught two private tuition students for 5 consecutive years before, mainly from Pri to Sec level. Pulled a boy's Math results from F9 to A1 within the same academic year.

I've taught in a tuition centre for 5 years before, specializing in Pri and Secondary Mathematics, teaching up to 15 classes a week when i was the age of 19 till i was 24 before leaving to pursue a flying career with Singapore Airlines. I have still since quit flying and still takes up private tuition as my passion for teaching is still very strong. Other subjects taught at the centre was Pri English, Pri Chinese, Lower Secondary English, Lower Secondary Chem/Phy.

Tutoring philosophy: Using the most straightforward method of teaching by explaining concepts, and not merely following notes/tutorials provided on assessment books. Homework is always given as revision only, student should be able to complete it on their own without much corrections required as lesson is meant for learning or revision, not for doing corrections. If the student is eager to score high marks, I will definitely ensure he/she reaches his/her goal at the end of the academic term. Relatively low tolerance for lazy students as it takes two hands to clap if the student wishes to do well in his exams :)
