Self Introduction

I have done many formal and informal teaching. I went back to my secondary school to prepare the O level batch for Mathematics(both E and A) during my JC1 year. I am confident and dedicated in my teaching. I am currently teaching JC2 H2Econs, H1GP and H2Mathematics, Secondary school Maths(Both E and A), Pure Physics, Pure Chemistry and English.

My teaching style is very much altered and personalized to each of my students. I use a notebook to record down the students progress as well as their preferred teaching method based on my observations and by request. Thus, I arrange lesson plans based on each student so that they are able to benefit most out of their time spent during tuition. Since school is already exhausting for them, I will arrange lessons plans based on the time slot that is requested so that they do not find studying is a chore. My teaching style has been proven effective with my past students, a student who scored below 40 before tuition scored a B3 for her final year exams in Sec3. Also, a B4 student managed to achieve his first distinction in his prelims, scoring 80+ for both E and A maths.

Personally I do a lot of recapping so that students will not forget what has been taught before and can quickly progress to doing more practices and covering more grounds. Also, recapping is a very effective tool for retaining information in one's mind in their long-term memory. What is been taught initially is in the short term memory and practices helps to retain the theory taught but recapping helps a student trigger the thought process in recalling information taught to them for months ago and I will be able to teach them some methods of effective memorizing skills.
Other than recapping, I teach students one topic ahead of their school, so that they can gain as much as they can on NEW topics. and the surplus time, is used on practices, recapping as well as teaching of OLD topics to clarify any conceptual error and to refresh their topic knowledge.
I will also create mini tests to check on my students performance both in score wise and time wise. It is very crucial that students are able to have good time management skills during exams and the speed in exams.

I take pride in the students I teach and record their progress. I aim for a progressively improvement and it is definitely possible for every student to get their distinction in the exams that they take.
Every student can get their distinction, it is only a matter of how disciplined and determined they want it.
