Commitment / Other Details
I can start any time; my hours available are on weekday evenings. I have been teaching & tutoring for more than 20 years. The reason I stick to GP is because I have a personal interest in the subject.
Rapport Building
I never had a problem with this.
Keeping Up with Curriculum
No problem with that because I'm a practising teacher
As a Good Tutor
Last year, I had 4 students who took the A level exam. One scored A for GP and had straight As. A Hwa Chong student of Singaporean and China parents, he was tutored for 3 1/2 years, after he joined the Singapore schools at Sec 3. The other was an army boy repeating his A; he had failed his GP at TPJC. He got a B for GP this time round. Best of all were 2 China students - fresh from China - who scored A and B for GP in a matter of 1 year. Yes, 1 year, so much for 2-yr JC education and through-trained programmes.

Parent/Student Comments
I would like to thank Mr Tham for helping my son in GP over 3 lessons in October and November 2016. He has extensive knowledge and has encouraged and probed my son to think more critically and deeply about the issues raised in GP. My son scored 'A' for GP. "
