Rapport Building
I am very patient. I am strict with quality of work but not fierce in personality. I know how to vary my teaching style according to students' learning profiles - visual, auditory, kinesthetic. I have taught students with special needs while being a school teacher. I keep in contact with parents via sms & whatsapp. Able to provide weekly updates if required.
