My sessions are built towards a student led structure, with the pupil picking their weaknesses to explore but begin with a more supported tutorial with discussions about texts lead by me so that they never feel too intimidated. Eventually, I will become less of a guidance and more of a challenger to their ideas in order to help them become independent in their thinking.
Levels Taught: Lower Primary, Upper Primary
I am extremely passionate about education, children and the subjects I teach. I try to extend this passion and enthusiasm to my students to help them gain the confidence they want and need to tackle their examinations and class work/activities successfully.
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.
I hope to challenge and stimulate them in a way that gets them to think critically about the subject and thereby learn transferable skills that are not merely limited to an exam or test, but which will also be applicable in other areas of their lives.

I taught the primary 5 class, preparing some of them for their common entrance examinations and their transition into secondary school. I taught them according to a lesson plan which is created on a weekly basis. I issued tests and class work/activities to them to enable me evaluate their performance.

I ensure to study the students to enable me know the abilities and boundaries of this student. After this is done, I adapt my teaching style to suit the learning style of the student. This is to ensure we achieve the desired outcome at the end of the session. I liaise with the parents to ensure the skills and abilities of the students is optimally harnessed.
