    I enjoy helping my students improve in their work and it makes me proud and happy to see them grow an interest in the subject and develop critical thinking skills. It is fulfilling to see the parents and the students satisfied with their school performance.

    There are a few techniques I employ while tutoring, for example fostering critical thinking and analytical skills, reverse teaching method, interesting maths games, real-life applications and so on.

    Rapport Building
    For my students, I will find out about more about their preferences first. For instance, I will ask what they like to do in their free time, what kind of games they like to play, and which subject they enjoy and dislike the most. I believe that's where they will slowly start opening up to me, as I share about the subjects which did not appeal as much to me when I was in school. I will also occasionally give them small challenges. For instance, if they do well for their CAs/SAs, I will reward them with small gifts to encourage them.

    For their parents, I will try to talk to them often about how their children are performing, and depending on how much information they are comfortable to share with me, I will ask them how their relationship with the kids is like (if it's necessary). Occasionally, I will buy some snacks for my students and parents to share, as I believe food is a very good way to break the ice.
    Keeping Up with Curriculum
    I will ask my friends who are in MOE about the syllabus, and also look up on assessment books at bookstores regularly to keep myself updated with the curriculum. I will also ask my students about the curriculum they have in school currently (for the older students who are able to answer). I will then adapt my teaching materials according to the new syllabus.
    As a Good Tutor
    I think a good tutor must take the initiative to prepare materials for his students, and to be ready to re-learn any concept which might be unfamiliar to him at first. I believe being a good tutor also means being patient and encouraging with the child, as praise works better than scoldings for children in general, unless the child really needs to be lectured. Also, the tutor must put in the effort to engage the child, as being engaged is important in keeping the child's interest in the subject and in learning.

      Keeping Up with Curriculum
      As a Good Tutor
      I believe a good tutor should be adaptable. Every student has different needs and preferences, some may be more receptive to visual stimulus, audio stimulus or even kinesthetics. Hence, a good tutor should be able to identify what helps each particular student learn most effectively and employ a coherent strategy to teach. This means that the tutor must be flexible and be able to modify his teaching style to suit the student's needs accordingly.

      Secondly, a good tutor should be patient with his student. A good tutor must understand his students are not perfect and need time to digest new material. Being patient even in tough situations will allow the tutor to remain in control and his persistent efforts will eventually earn the respect and trust of the student who will then be more receptive to his teaching. Furthermore, I believe a tutor plays a similar role to that of a palette, which is to provide a gamut of options a student can consider to discover what works best for him/her. Sometimes the teaching and learning process is an experimental one, and the tutor must not be narrow-minded but instead explore various alternative studying methods or examination tips which may help the student. The student will then have the freedom to pick and choose what works best and thereby improve in his studies.

      Lastly, a good tutor should have good communication skills, as it is the key ingredient which allows him to succeed in his job. Not only does the tutor need to communicate effectively with the student so that the student can absorb new knowledge in a safe environment, the tutor will likely also have to form friendly relationships with the student's parents when discussing the student's progress and ways to help him improve further. Thus good communication skills is necessary for the tutor to address the various concerns the different parties (parents and students) may have so that maximum results can be achieved.

        Rapport Building
        I would establish strong communications with the parents from the beginning, ensuring that I am aware of their demands in the tutoring process. I ensure that the parent and student are aware of the agenda of each lesson. I also feel like carrying a positive attitude towards teaching is the most important factor because it determines the mood of the whole tutoring process. This way, I aim to cultivate a long-term relationship with both the parent and the student. Besides that, I would provide both the student and parent an outlet to give their timely feedback towards my tutoring and I would be willing to accept their constructive criticisms to become a better tutor. When the student makes an improvement, I would give small little rewards and set further and bigger goals to increase motivation.
        Keeping Up with Curriculum
        To keep up with the curriculum of the student, I will map out the syllabus he/she is currently studying and plan each lesson accordingly. If there is a test coming up, I would focus on the topics being tested. If there is a major examination, I would ensure that there is enough time planned out to touch on every topic and the student should receive enough practice before doing the actual paper.
        As a Good Tutor
        I personally think that a good tutor should always be patient and dedicated. A good tutor shall be patient in sharing their knowledge to the student who might be completely new to this certain concept and needs time to understand or might require several explanations from different angles to finally digest the concept. I think that a good tutor should be dedicated to wanting the student to really improve in terms of grades, always seeking out ways to further stretch the potential of their student. Lastly, a good tutor should also be a good role model for the student to follow. A good tutor should, at the end of the day, be a positive influence to the tutee, in education and in life.

          I am able to commit for the tutee's academic year, and may be able to extend, to be discussed further.
          Rapport Building
          As I have scored 273+3 in my PSLE, with straight A*s and a Distinction in Higher Chinese, I am confident of my ability to help my students work towards their academic goals.
          Keeping Up with Curriculum
          I go through the syllabus myself and take note of any new learning objectives, or topics that may be harder to master, so I am prepared for lessons with my tutees.
          As a Good Tutor
          I am patient and will guide my tutees to learn to the best of my ability.
