Self Introduction

I am a NUS graduate with a Bachelor of Science with honours in chemistry with medicinal chemistry specialization who has graduated in 2016.From 2012-2016, I spent my time in university and have been doing part-time tutoring. Ever since my graduation in 2016, I have been focusing in full-time tutoring. I have strong passion for teaching and believe that each child can succeed given the correct style of teaching. I believe that building of the concept is very important for learning a subject well. This will allow the student to build effective links between the different topics. Accruing to this, I employ a intuitive approach when teaching students, focusing on the basic concepts understanding before linking complicated concepts with the fundamental concepts.

One of my remarkable case studies will be a Secondary 4 girl from Monfort Secondary. After 4 months of tutoring her Chemistry, I managed to get her to improve from C6 grade to A1 grade in O Levels.

Other than this achievement, i managed to clinch a silver in 20th Singapore Chemistry Olympiad back in 2008. In 2009, I managed to clinch a distinction in Nanyang Concept Test.
