About
FavoriteSTUDENT
FAVORITE

My approach to tutoring is student-driven and question-based. 'Student-driven' means that each lesson is tailored to their own needs and concerns. We tackle the topics that they find most challenging and build confidence from there. 'Question-based' means that I always keep my students engaged and on their toes. They are an active participant in the lesson and enjoy rising to the challenge.

It is imperative to set clear goals with each individual tutee and over the course of the lessons, achieve these goals in a direct and rewarding manner. The methods used to reach these set incentives will change according to the situation and needs of the student. However, there are some central principles with my approach to tutoring that do not change. I seek to inspire confidence and motivation by drawing out enthusiasms of the subject to ensure on-going interest in the lessons. I also focus on building strong and trustworthy relationships with the students which in turn make for positive and successful lessons.

    I have taught students across the various primary classes. Upon my initial meeting with a student, I make an assessment of their strengths and weaknesses and together we come up with an improvement plan - where the student commits to a focused and personalised learning plan. I aim to instill self-confidence and commitment in every student I teach as I believe these are the fundamental ingredients to academic success.

    Jul 2018 - Aug 2018

    Government Secondary School

    As a subject teacher, I taught English Language, Literature-in-English and Government to students in the secondary section. My approach to teaching them was based around the core skills that make up most of the examination questions a student will encounter. I looked at the student's reading comprehension, textual analysis, creative writing and essay technique. The broad applicability of these skills is what makes English Language tutoring so beneficial.
