Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education and Teaching English as a second language
I am the best teacher for you! I am Jane and I taught English as a second language and other subjects in 6 well established International schools here in Penang at St christopher's, Dalat and International schools overseas.I studied in New Zealand where I got a Bachelor s Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Post Graduate in Teaching English as a second language. I have been teaching for the past 26 years. Working in 6 different well established International schools in 6 countries and cultures have taught me how students feel when they are trying to learn English. I also trained teachers.
The most important thing as a teacher is to understand the student and be kind. My teaching method is flexible, there are many ways to present teaching to students. Some learn hands on, visually, by listening, game based, student centered discussions and making connections just to name a few. I present lessons according to how the students learn best. I present my teaching in a fun, enjoyable way that makes the students want to learn more. I make my own resources. At the end of the course, my students speak and write closely like native english speakers do and they also do very well academically in other subjects.

Master's Degree in English Studies
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.
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.

Coming from STEM background with a high command in English, I am suited to teach my students in a way that exercises pragmatism, analytical thinking and logics. As someone who genuinely enjoys teaching, I aim to inspire my students, to inculcate the belief that learning is a lifelong process and one should accept it with an open mind and heart to truly succeed. I offer a truly unique and enriching learning experience that will definitely broaden your horizon and pave the way to greater success in the future. I look forward to meeting you and starting an interesting and exciting chapter ahead.

Bachelor of Science
I provide home tutoring for academic subjects such as primary level & secondary level since 2005. I have been teaching Maths, Add Maths for both national & international students(IGCSE). Previously, I also provided lessons in Piano, Chinese, English, Science subjects but I have eventually moved to focus mainly in Maths, Add Maths and Piano lessons. I have taught more than 50 students, mostly 1-1 and small group class of not more than 5 students in class. To me, quality comes before quantity.
My greatest achievement in tutoring over the years has been turning under performing students in certain subjects into great improvement of grades. One great example was a primary 4 student that went from F to A within a semester. More importantly is to make the students falling in love with these subjects. Once they love the subjects, everything else will be in place. I have great relationships with both the parents & the students. Overall, I love what I do. I think that matters the most.
I am a UK graduate and have been providing private Piano and English lessons over the past 30 years.
Face to face is the best approach and I prefer only 1 student per class.

Bachelor degree in Business & Commerce from Tokyo
I've earned my JLPT N1 in the first year of my study in Japan, continued by a 4 years of degree in a locally renowned university Keio. I was a part time tutor teaching English to Japanese and vice versa. I design my class accordingly to suit different needs but will always be fun as I focus on active engagement and communication. Be it a skill up for your upcoming trip, preparation for your test, or just to enjoy anime without subtitles, you are most welcome :)
I would like to invite you for a free mock up, where I get to know more about your needs and level. I would be able to assist you on reading, listening, and writing, depends on whichever you would like to focus on. I may also converse fully/ partially in Japanese during the class (no worries, I did that before and there will be no problem in communication), according to your level. There will be no homework (yes, most of my students are busy working adults) but I do hope you can at least commit to a class per week, as practice and the environment are the most important keys to master a new language.
If you are planning to start your Japanese Language Journey, Ms Kwan is the best tutor regardless of your current Level. I had started from 0 with Ms Kwan and so far i felt like i have progressed in a very efficient pace. It also helps that Ms Kwan is fluent in English and Mandarin which helps alot in explanation of Japanese via translation and the use of similar terms.
She is a patient, helpful and caring teacher.
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.
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.

Bachelors Degree in Accounting
I worked in tuition centres for 2 years. And now I'm a full time home tutor.
The lessons designed according to student's standards. I will use creative teaching methods to aid in comprehension and I am attentive to student's Psychological needs.
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.
She is really helpful, experienced and understanding teacher. My girl and friends improved with her coaching. She is highly recommended as a tutor as her understanding on student's limitation and help them to overcome is really great. Appreciate on her effort.

Masters Of Informatics , Bachelor's Degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering
I have been teaching SPM and IGCSE level Physics, Science and Maths for the past 6 years. My students have since graduated from school and are in the working arena, as well as pursuing their tertiary education in colleges. My years of experience working in the education and electronics industry has enabled me to conduct the following lectures with target audiences ranging from Secondary students, to students pursuing their diploma as well as to corporate clients. These subjects include Introduction to Raspberry Pi Programming, Physics for SPM, Mathematics for SPM, Physics for IGCSE, Mathemathics for IGCSE, Digital Electronics Fundamentals, Fundamentals of Arduino programming as well as C Program fundamentals.
For Secondary school students, I regularly use simple analogies to describe concepts to my students helping them to understand those concepts rather than memorizing them. I encourage a two-way interaction with my students in order to foster a critical thinking mindset. I also will converse in any language (English, Bahasa Melayu, Hokkien) that is prefered by the student to teach them effectively. As for the Diploma/Foundation/A-level students, I will often share valuable insights and best known methods from the industry to better equip students at the university level to better prepare themselves for the working world.
Very accommodating, informative, hardworking , patient and easily accessible. Well prepared for all the Mathematics classes. Lastly he's a very good tutor.
I make teaching experience interesting by conducting discussions and quizzes as to have a better understanding that how much the student has imbibed and what more we need to work on. I work according to a planned schedule, so the syllabus is completed on time and we have ample time of revision. This makes student work under no pressure.
I believe in Practical Knowledge and not in Theory if a person knows the practical implementation, the theory would be the easiest part in learning, I will teach with real life and live example and that too not kind of Teacher-Student but as friend-mentor.
Very humble and down to earth person, very passionate about the teaching, easily accessible by phone or gmail.

Bachelor Honours Degree (Biotechnology, 2011-2014) - UTAR; PhD Degree (Medical Entomology, 2015-present) - UNIMAS
I realised from my previous tutoring experiences that I am a tutor who rather emphasizes on understanding a particular concept than memorising it. Biology, contrary to popular belief among Malaysian, I believe is a subject which needs to be understood instead of memorised. It is my pleasure to aid students in grasping the main principles of the subjects I teach.
Messages will be conveyed through mind maps and diagrams during Biology lessons. Each chapter will always start with an overview so that students might grasp the 'floorplan' of that chapter. When I go into the details, students will be guided to relate different parts of mind maps/diagram given during the class. Analogies on the other hand will be used to aid in understanding Mathematic. Once the students understand the concept, they will be guided to solve various Mathematical problems. For Mathematics, I believe in the saying 'Practice Makes Perfect'. All in all, my lessons are not only fun- and understanding-oriented. I like to trigger the student's mind to think critically so that they could answer questions asked in different ways during exams.
Joshua Ang Xin De is a very friendly person. He is also very organized and a well-planned person.
The teaching approach followed by Joshua Ang Xin De enables me to understand the subjects more easily.
As to what he said in his introduction, he really emphasizes on understanding instead of memorising. I feel that it indeed is a better way to study a subject instead of always memorising it. I like how he is always very patient when his students don't understand a particular topic and how he doesn't mind repeating the same thing twice, or sometimes more than that.
Masters in English language Studies (USM)
I have been teaching English for 10 years and have experience in all skills; reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar for all levels as well as prep classes for MUET, IELTS, and TOEFL. I've guided many local and international students with their test preps especially IELTS. I was lecturing (English) at TAR University College Penang and prior to that, at ELS Language Centre.

She explains every question that you don't know and takes time to go through your work. Friendly, helpful, very easy going and she is exactly like a native speaker! Highly recommended!
I took IELTS in August and got 6.0 for writing. I retake again in December and went to her 2 weeks before my IELTS. I specifically requested guidance in writing and it improved from 6.0 to 6.5. I find that she is very dedicated as she checked and analysed all my previous essays to check for common mistakes that I tend to make when I write essays. The common mistakes she detected has helped me a lot in improving my writing. I find that she is very sincere in teaching as she really makes sure that I understand the items that she has taught. She also gave me a lot of tips to help me get higher marks in the IELTS Writing.
She is really helpful and able to conduct the class in a lively way. When I have any doubt or question, she will find lots of way to help and make sure that I understand. She is not only conducting a class, but also combining english to your daily life.
