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.

As a Good Tutor
I believe that every student has the potential to excel. With the right guidance, a student will be able to achieve his/her full potential.

A good tutor should be firstly knowledgeable and well-versed in the subject as well as capable of giving clear explanations. Secondly, the tutor should be able to make the subject interesting for the student. Thirdly, the tutor should be patient and good-tempered. Fourthly, a good tutor is able to detect a student's weak areas and help him/her to improve in those areas.

Tutor is very punctual and very committed to teach. He has managed to help bring back my son's interest in the 2 Sciences. He uses illustrations which enables my son to understand and registers the concepts. Very glad to have him for my child. Many thanks!

    Rapport Building
    I normally build rapport with my students and their parents by first going with the Curriculum, followed by identifying the problems related with my students' learning difficulty and using various methods catered to their learning abilities and skills. After every lesson I will also brief the parents on the curriculum, what learning difficulties their children are facing; and how me and the parents can help my students improve through encouragement, rewarding them for their efforts and nurturing them.
    Keeping Up with Curriculum
    I keep up with the current curriculum by reviewing the textbook and asking my students what has been taught in class. I also review the exam papers released by MOE and devise strategies for my students on how best to tackle them.
    As a Good Tutor
    As a good tutor I believe that he or she shouldn't be bound to teach only by the subject in which he or she expertise in but should also guide the students and provide advice on problems that they may face in life.
    As students learn from teachers, we as teachers should also learn from students; teaching & learning should always be a two-way relationship. Through interaction & nurturing i believe even underachieving students will show that they can enjoy & have fun in learning.
