Miss Vivian is highly professional when it comes to teaching. Her consideration to find ways for improvement is highly appreciated as she wants what is best for me academically. Her strictness and teaching discipline is also one of the positive things that has pressured me to do better. She is supportive and flexible when it comes to time management. I could only highlight about how well prepared she is when it comes to her teaching strategies. Overall, Miss Vivian is an excellent english tutor (MUET).

Inspiring, motivating and understanding. She have the awareness about my daily life and surrounding so she could adapt it to her timetable, so she could manage it properly for both side so I could cope with her teaching. She thought thoroughly about her teaching scope. In a proficient ways to apply her education strategy to her student. That every minute of her time in educating me counts as efficient and effective for my time. She motivated me by pursuing something more than what i have aimed for. At first, i did not mind to have at least Band 2. But she beg to differ, requested for me to aim higher, at least Band 3. She was very strict about it, because she wants what is best for her student, more chances and opportunity to receive education offers from any institute. So i put my effort by aiming for Band 3. Who could ever thought i got Band 4 in the end but i did! Highly appreciate her teachings as well as her moral guidance in helping me to aim higher and widen my education purpose.

Experience

Hello and greetings, I'm Kit. I am a UMS (Universiti Malaysia Sabah) graduate with a Bachelor of Art's in Music Study, and I started teaching since I was still a student. throughout the years, I've met many wonderful teachers and students which allowed me to gain experience from them. My strength is that i am observant, as i can determine a proper lesson plan for students according to their level of musicality.

Tutoring Approach

My aims are to make lessons enjoyable and easy to understand. I believe everyone has a different level/sense of musicality. Thus, my approach is to make lessons easy and will be catered according to their needs and understanding. What better way to learn, appreciate and play your favourite songs by picking up a musical instrument like piano? Of course, media will be utilized to enhance the lessons during class. Side note, I do tuition for lower primary (Year 1-3) for English and Bahasa Melayu subjects.
