Self Introduction

I have experience in teaching Mathematics, English, General Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics), Literature and Spanish to various students in the Philippines, equivalent to primary and secondary levels in Singapore. I am best in teaching Mathematics and English Language/Literature due to academic background and interest.

In Singapore, I have taught various subjects at different levels, as outlined below:

Primary 6: Maths and English
Secondary 4 (N-Level): E-Maths
Secondary 4 & 5 (O-Level): E-Maths, A-Maths, Chemistry, English
Junior College: H2 Economics, Mathematics, H1 General Paper

I like to work closely with my tutees in a one-to-one setting, to ensure that the student has my full attention. I also have a number of resources and study guides that help them in their revision. I do my best to develop good studying habits and skills in my tutees, not simply making sure that they accomplish their homework and pass their tests. I try to help my tutees become independent learners, so that they will eventually be capable of learning and revising without the constant presence of a tutor.

I am very patient with students, and I encourage them to work hard to achieve good results.

Smart Tuition Singapore has helped my daughter find a caring and effective tutor. My daughter shows more interest in her studies now, especially in Mathematics. Hope you get a suitable tutor through their excellent service as well! - Mrs Ng

Tutor Michelle prepared our daughter successfully for her 'O' Level Examination within a very short period of time. We did not expect her to be able to get into a Junior College with her usual results. We were very pleasantly surprised and thoroughly satisfied with Smart Tuition's Tutor recommendation and would strongly recommend Smart Tuition to all other smart parents. - Mr and Mrs Tan
