I welcome the focus on the individual learner that is a central feature of tutoring, and very much enjoy engaging in the lively dialogue and individualized feedback that enables tutees to grow in confidence as learners. I bring enthusiasm and energy to my tutoring. Thanks to my work as a school teacher, my approach to tutoring is also informed, where relevant, by a sound understanding of the assessment requirements for public examinations and school entrance examinations.
I have 7 years of productive experience as a private tutor.I have been efficient in teaching upper primary students especially those preparing for National Common Entrance Examination. I am proud to have helped over 100 students excel in their Common Entrance Examinations to any secondary school of choice.
I am reliable, flexible, kind, firm and detail-oriented. I place great emphasis on sound foundations, good organisation and exam technique. I seek to stimulate my student's curiosity in the subject. I will also give the student practical guidance for tackling texts, revision and tests.
My approach has consistently yielded higher academic achievement and better motivated students.
I tailor my teaching for each child and have substantial prior experience to draw upon. My aim is to provide effective and meaningful tutorials through careful and detailed explanation of theory. In addition to this approach to tutorial structure, I will ensure there is effective use of discussion and analysis between myself and my students in order to successfully understand new concepts or just revise learnt material effectively. I look forward to passing my enthusiasm to my students.
