Self Introduction


I specialise in tutoring upper secondary and JC Mathematics.

I have more than 9 years of experience in tutoring students of different levels (secondary school, JC and university) in small groups as well as 1-to-1.

As a serious and reliable tutor who values punctuality and responsibility, I enjoy helping students to understand key mathematical concepts and to apply them effectively over a wide range of problems. My aim is to build a strong foundation and to motivate students to develop interest in the subject.


"Ms Poon's tutoring has helped me to thoroughly understand math concepts and approaches to tackle questions in comprehensive, step-by-step methods. She has always been very patient in explaining to me how to unpack and answer math questions, helping me gain confidence in my problem solving. Miss Poon teaches in a concise manner, making the effort to ensure that I understand what I need to and not more in anything that is not needed. I improved slowly but surely throughout my 1.5 years under her guidance. Thank you Miss Poon!! :)"
~ Student N.T., Temasek JC, 2016

"The transition from H2 Maths to H1 Maths was an easy and unexpectedly quick one with Ms Sarah's guidance. She taught me a few topics that I had missed due to the transition and as a result, I was able to understand and follow Maths lessons in school."

I learned German from Sec 1 to 4 at the MOELC and was in the German Language Elective Programme in JC. After that, I went on to study and work in Germany for more than 10 years.

During my time in Germany, I have tutored several fellow students, who were attending German language courses, and have helped them to strengthen their German language foundation and to practise their conversation skills.

I offer tuition for students and adults, who seek to improve their written and spoken German. Beside practical study tips, I will share my experience in Germany as well as the people and culture there.
