Tuition/Teaching Experience
I'm an experienced tutor providing lessons both individually and in small groups since 2008. I've taught at an international and MOE schools handling IB programmes, and IGCSE.

I emphasized on important concepts for each topic to enable my students be competent in Biology and Chemistry. I design differentiated teaching resources and assignments to help understand and appreciate the assessment criteria.

Students find me amiable and easy to relate to and clarify their academic problems without feeling pressured. I've been described as an excellent teacher who cares deeply for the learning of students with a good track record in student results.

I specialise in Biology and Chemistry, for O levels (includes IGCSE), A/AS levels (includes Integrated Programme), and IB syllabus (SL/HL)
