Master's Degree in English Studies

Experience

I have been teaching English for 12 years. Throughout the years, I have guided and helped students from all walks of life. Today, my students include kids, teenagers, and working adults. I teach the National, as well as the IGCSE English syllabus. I also train students for the ESOL, IELTS and MUET examinations. I believe that having a good command over the English language opens doors to a great array of opportunities, and therefore, providing people with the right set of English skills is one of my passions.

Tutoring Approach

I plan my lesson, and make all the necessary preparation ahead, including photocopy of handouts, and lesson content. Lessons involve reading, writing, listening and speaking. Having a good command over the English language, especially grammar, allows me to deliver lessons of impeccable quality. I believe in Albert Einstein's quote "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.", and therefore, I make it a point of teaching in a simple, yet effective manner.

Tutoring Approach

I teach both groups and individuals and my approach in both cases is to encourage the students to do most of the speaking, while keeping mine  to a minimum.  Learning materials are selected to be appropriate and relevant for each student and lessons are conducted in accordance with the student’s needs.  Practical dialogues are used to cover speaking, reading, writing and listening and to demonstrate grammar in a natural and relaxed way.  The lessons will help students become proficient in the use of everyday English and communicate effectively with confidence.

I have experience in teaching online and one to one for a year . I can teach English specifically as I'm currently doing English course in Sunway university. I will be conducting weekly assessments and quizzes to evaluate student's ability and understanding. I will also be using technology teaching and presentations during my lessons. There will also be parents meetings on and off to discuss student's performances.

Tutoring Approach

In my classes I use the flipped classroom technic to conduct my classes whereby the class becomes a dynamic environment in which students would have to do the talking which simply means they would have to prepare even before class. This allows students to go beyond normal boundaries and able to think using the KBAT formulae and explore their natural curiosity. I will also use the design thinking technic whereby students will be resolving and learning through real life cases through group analysis, brainstorming, innovation and creative ideas. For kindergarten, games and fun lessons will be used to teach. I will also include technology and expose students for better learning and understanding to help development of the brain.

Education

MBA

Experience

I graduated with second upper class in BSc in Business (2010). Currently, I am studying MBA in UNITAR International University. I have almost completed all subjects with current CGPA of 3.90. During my university studies, I was working as a part time tutor for around 4 years. I was handling BM, BI and Maths tuition classes for Standard 4 till Form 3. I am also a certified TESOL (English) teacher. Subsequently after graduation, I started my working life in commerce and banking industry.

Tutoring Approach

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and  being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems.   My philosophy is based on the idea that learning happens in an environment of mutual respect in which the student is encouraged to think and make new connections for themselves.  My experience has been that one-to-one personal tuition has a unique value to students because of the ability to resolve the students’ personal barriers to learning in a way that lays the foundations for a deep and lasting understanding of the subject. My approach varies depending on the student’s needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world exampleswherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continually.  I don’t lecture to students or ask them to memorise things.  Nor do I do the students’ homework for them! I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student’s understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as essay structure and technique, logical thought, and the effective use of numbers and graphs.

Ms Jophy was a very nice tutor. She took the time to evaluate the needed for my upcoming exam. I have started Accounting from a very basic understanding. Ms Jophy quickly adapts the level to meet me, while at the same time demands my full focus and intensity to learn as much as possible during the lessons. Fantastic so far. Would recommend to anyone.

Before having tuition, I had no interest at all in Accounting. Through my school's friend, I got to know Ms Jophy. I requested for a free trial class from her. And within 1 month, I started to understand Debit and Credit and some theories through mnemonics that she taught me. I love the tuition class and enjoyed the lesson. I got an A in the first exam I had taken after tuition and this boosted my interest in accounting even more! After three months, I decided to have tuition with Ms Jophy in Mathematics and Additional Mathematics. She prepared her own colored notes for me.
