This is a crucial period when the students graduate from primary to secondary and Mathematics is taken onto a new level of difficulty. Take this time to enable your child to be well prepared for topics such as algebra and geometry. Materials are developed by me and I will reinforce their learning through mini quizzes during lessons.

I have been teaching upper Primary, Secondary as well as JC students for since 2007. As such, I am very well in sync with the current school syllabus and marking system. Students typically display a stark improvement in their school results based on the memory methods and techniques I impart to them. I am equipped with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from NUS as well as a Master degree in Psychology from the City University of New York. I am interested in discovering new learning methodologies, reading up on mnemonic techniques, as well as researching on brain development, and I am certain that my endeavors to improve your child's learning will be translated to better academic grades.
The pace of class will be moderate, pegged at the average learning appetite of the class.
Homework may be given to reinforce what was taught in class — this assignment will be discussed during the next session.
Students can expect to enjoy fun and interesting lessons but yet, learn something new after each session. I aim to inculcate the love of the language through intrinsic motivation, various methods to help students improve and finally, self-empowerment once they realise that they can tackle the questions they once thought were difficult.
As for materials, I will utilise a mix of my personal teaching notes and resources from selected assessment books for students' practice. All areas in the EL syllabus for PSLE will also be covered including Oral, Paper 1 and Paper 2.
Primary 6 Mathematics-Both Paper 1 and Paper 2 (Mainly focus on Problem Sums)
Education is not preparation for life, but it's life itself. While theory is important, I also help students connect it to the world. Being a full-time tutor for more than 4 years, I have accumulated a lot of experience tutoring students from different backgrounds, different schools, different learning capabilities, different characters, different strengths and weaknesses. I am capable of knowing how students think and learn. Every student is unique. By devising new strategy with students, it helps them to grow into a responsible and self-discipline person. My classes are quite intensive, but students enjoy my classes as I will always add some funs into the teaching session so as to make it an interesting and less tedious one. I always believe that this is the most important element in life especially when it comes to study -- if you want to excel in one subject, you must first love it. As I am experienced in coaching all four PSLE subjects (EMSC), and even Sec1-2 Maths and Sec1-4 Chinese, students stay with me for many years and we build strong teacher-student relationship. Materials wise, I will prepare my own notes as the main teaching materials most of the time depending on the progress of our lessons. Other materials are supplementary books and test papers from different schools.
I have 6 years of full-time tutoring experience in Math (Specialized), Science, English, and Chinese for all Primary levels(specialized in PSLE); and Maths and Chinese Sec1-Sec4 levels.
Payment wise, it will be advance payment before the start of every four classes. There will be tuition homework assigned to students. However, the amount will depend on the students' workload and progress. I am open for discussion with the parents on the best way to guide their child/children.
