Experience

My coaching journey has so far taken me to various challenges in meeting the learning needs of English users among schoolchildren, undergraduates and professionals. Over the years, I have coached English learners of all ages, local and expatriate professionals, business undergraduates, international school students, and IELTS and MUET candidates to help develop their: American English  British English  General English  Conversational English  Spoken English  Written English  Business English  Academic English

Tutoring Approach

With 25 years of English learning experience, my approach covers all the essentials and principles that are integral to fulfilling one’s linguistic potential. As my English was extremely poor at the initial stage of my development, I had to take on countless challenges in learning the language from scratch. Knowing how to make this journey a success has empowered me to inspire those looking to make a similar leap.  Using learning materials that are mostly sourced from the Internet, every lesson aims to address what the students lack fundamentally and subsequently help them acquire the skills required to use the language effectively. Unlike conventional classes that focus on students’ short-term needs, the objective here is basically to make students better users of the language in the long run. For example, the discussion that follows the completion of a Cambridge Primary Checkpoint or KS2 SATs reading comprehension worksheet is not a simple Q and A session where the correct answer to each question is given. To strengthen students’ competence in tackling any reading comprehension questions, I offer constructive feedback on their work, explain the right approach to answering these questions, and make key suggestions for improving their word choice and sentence construction. Such extensive input invariably helps students improve their grammar, vocabulary, and listening, reading, speaking and writing skills.  But the biggest difference between my approach and others' is probably the sole focus on promoting an organic and holistic acquisition of the language. This mindset is reflected in each and every learning activity that my coaching covers. The best part is, most of these activities are actually done before or after the weekly lesson. That means when you pay for one session, you are essentially getting a week's worth of learning.  Ultimately, no matter what your initial purpose of taking my lessons might be, the end goal is to reinforce your language foundations so that in the foreseeable future you can use the language effectively in any situation—whether for exam, coursework or business purposes. And perhaps more importantly, you can continue to work on your command of the language through self-study once you have grasped the basics and developed the right attitude to learning—saving you a large sum of fees in the long term.

No matter where you are in your English learning journey, Jion will definitely be able to help you improve. Thanks to his friendly personality and fluent English, the lessons are fun, interesting and easy to follow. But what I like most about him is his ability to inspire you to keep learning and growing.

Whether it's face-to-face or online, Jion puts a great amount of effort into coaching his students. His passion for the English language is inspiring. When I first approached him for guidance on my IELTS, I was hoping to get some quick tips on how to improve my writing. To be honest, due to the heavy workload I was dealing with, I was looking for something that could make my preparations easier. Surprisingly, Jion told me from the start that we wouldn't focus on the answering techniques. I thought that wasn't a good idea because I was struggling a bit in the previous writing paper. But I gave it a try anyway. Thank God it turned out to be the right decision. Instead of spoon-feeding me with things that I already knew, he made me see the whole picture of how to write better. For example, he showed me how to convey and organize my ideas, and explained a few ways that I could use to make the writing more interesting. All that was really helpful. Without his input, I might not have achieved the score I wished for. And I'm really grateful to Jion for making me realize that there's no shortcut to improving my writing skills. It's something that I need to continuously work on. Thank you so much for your time and effort, Jion!

Jion's excellent command of the language and willingness to share his knowledge are evident in his approach to language coaching. Regardless of the difficulty of the topic, he has a canny ability to explain it in a comprehensible and compelling way. When coaching undergraduates in academic writing, showing them how to present a logical and convincing argument, his grasp of linguistic nuances and attention to detail are particularly impressive.

With so many websites giving free English learning tips these days, I thought it wouldn't be necessary to get a tutor. But after taking Jion’s one-on-one lessons, I changed my mind. For a busy working professional like me, I always wanted to improve my English without filling my schedule with too many lessons. His approach was really helpful in that regard. He shared with me plenty of tips on how to practice my English skills by myself. Wherever I go, I'm now able to use every opportunity I have to improve my English further.

Jion is a great English language coach. I like how he makes everything easy for me to understand. The detailed explanation also shows his dedication to teaching. I’m really grateful for the opportunity to learn from such an experienced English speaker.

Tan TM

I engaged Dorothy in 2016 to coach my daughter in IELTS as my daughter needed a minimum 7.5 for every paper in ELTS to enter the medical university of her choice in the UK. My daughter had previously obtained 8, 7.5, 7 and 6.5 before she was tutored by Dorothy. Dorothy was quick to recognize her weakness (essay paper) and gave my daughter a lot of exercises for practice, always telling her the reasons behind the mistakes besides just marking the papers. Practise makes perfect. After two lessons per week over a couple of months, my daughter achieved the min 7.5 for all papers in her IELTS.

Miss Dorothy is a very professional, patient and experienced English teacher. She is able to identify people's individual weaknesses in English and provide assistance to strengthen these weak points. She has helped me tremendously in building a strong foundation in grammar and develop different skills to write both creative pieces and professional pieces. I love how she has helped me realize the importance of grammar and punctuation as these little details have contributed greatly to the flow of a piece of writing. Besides, her ability to analyze and understand the marking criteria of various assignments has allowed me to score very well in IELTS (individual band 7) and every English writing test in college. Apart from that, I am very thankful for Miss Dorothy's patience and friendly approach as they have enabled me to learn English in a comfortable environment. She is a very loving person and I can never thank her enough for helping me achieve my dream of studying medicine. I have changed from an insecure girl who speaks broken English to a young lady who writes with good academic standard.

I sat for IELTS exam twice and only manage to obtain Band 6 instead of Band 6.5..subsequently, a priest recommended me to Dorothy and with only 4 months of coaching, the real potential in me to obtain Band 7 was delivered. She has the ability to zoom into the strength, weaknesses, opportunities and threat of a candidate and will efficiently guide them for success. If you found yourself to be lost, desperate, helpless and hopeless, then the person to look for help is obviously DOROTHY! She is the person who will walk along with you and bring the best out of you.

Mdm Dorothy is the first tutor to ever succeed in helping me achieve band 7 in both writing and speaking. She did not hesitate to criticize me when I made mistake but she was also generous with her praise and this motivated me to work harder as well as to avoid making the same mistake. With regards to writing lessons, Mdm Dorothy did not just correct my grammatical and tenses errors, she also constructed a better sentence by using her own ideas and this helped me to further improve my writing skills. She was also willing to provide her modal answers as references. With regards to speaking lessons, she started with the basics like pronunciation and enunciation. At first I was sceptical with this approach but then it all made sense. As the conversation during the speaking test is recorded, this particular lesson taught me to emphasize the 'ed' and enabled the examiner to differentiate between the past tense and the present tense.

I signed up for online piano lesson 3 months ago, and got contacted by Miss Puteri..i have experienced in joining some music lessons but a first timer in piano lesson, and I don't regret accepting Miss Puteri’s offer :D she’s the most sweetest and positive teacher i have ever had. Miss Puteri does not only teaches me ‘how to play piano’, but she taught me a lot about having the passion and feeling in playing it. I gain more piano knowledge at ease every week. She gave lots of positive advices about life that connects around music itself, and even calms me down in a ‘musical way’ when I’m having a bunch of stuff in mind. All in all, Miss Puteri is very approachable and I’m happy with my choice :)).

My son, Naufal had learnt music and playing the piano from teacher Puteri since last year and I am happy to see he is developing and progressing well since the first day. He always look forward to attend his music lessons because teacher Puteri had accommodated a good learning environment for him. Moreover with online sessions due to the MCO/ pandemic, I observed good level of communication teacher Puteri has with my son and this makes him comfortable to learn and apprehend new skills and knowledge better. Thankful to have teacher Puteri as Naufal's piano teacher!

Putri has been giving private piano lessons to my son since he was 9 yrs old. She's very patient, friendly, doesn't stress out the student. Her lessons are tailored to follow the capability of the student. During festive season and birthday she'll surprise my son with a small gift, this helps create good rapport.

Bachelor of Arts in Economics

Experience

Victor attended Taylor's College Sri Hartamas and studied IB, and SMK Damansara Utama for SPM. He obtained 41 points for IB, inclusive of 7's in Economics, Mathematics, and Physics, as well as perfect scores for the Reading section of the SAT (800), and 800 for Mathematics Level 2, Chemistry, and Physics. After a turn of fate, he then attended University of Chicago's Bachelor of Arts Economics program (highest number of Economics Nobel Prizes in the world) and became a beneficiary of the now discontinued JPA Ivy League dan Setara Scholarship (RM1.2 million value).  Having worked in consulting, published journalistic articles, as well as working in human rights and having traveled to many different countries across the world, Victorhas a strong interest in foreign affairs, the interconnectivity of knowledge, and in developing the talent of everyone he meets and encounters.  He is incredibly passionate about teaching students, even more passionate about learning, and most passionate about helping his students to become learners that want and desire to learn with a purpose in their lives, and has assisted students in achieving their dreams and changing their lives by attending their dream universities and attaining their desired scholarships. Victor enjoys reading extensively, to the point that he was featured in the Star Newspaper in 2019 for reading 350 books in the course of a year to date (including Les Miserables, War and Peace, and Crime and Punishment) before completing 400 over the course of the year. 

Tutoring Approach

I believe that when it comes to education, there is no compromise. That's why I am committed to providing the longest-term value possible to you as you pursue your educational dreams, and will provide you a tailored educational experience from start to finish that suits your immediate needs and addresses your goals from the outset. I am intentional about creating an enjoyable and productive educational experience in which my students are motivated to succeed and understand WHY they want to succeed. It's not logical to force a student to study - they have to want it. That's what I firmly believe.   In my lessons, I help my students to develop critical thinking skills through two-way conversations that help them to use their material effectively, examine the practical implications of what they are learning in the real world, and to enjoy every single second of the process. During my one on one classes, most of my students ask me for specific topic reviews, and students also frequently come to me with practice exams, which I solve on the spot and explain to them.   My online classes are usually the same, although they are conducted over Skype and make use of resources like screen-sharing and a digital whiteboard. In both cases, my approach consists of a mutually agreed schedule that is worked out between me and the student that is designed for efficiency, allows us to assess our progress, and helps students to understand rather than memorize by rote.  Students usually request for 2-6 hours per week prior to their exams, and before sessions, we will come up with a plan of what they would like to cover or require assistance with. Having said that, my experience with different exam varieties and student learning styles is extensive, and my tutoring approach tailors to each student accordingly depending on the student's needs first and foremost.   In both my in person and online classes, I use a combination of Google Drive, Skype, and Zoom in order to populate materials to my students as well as solve problems live.  For scholarship interview and admissions preparation, I arrange mock interviews for my students during which I quiz them both on technical and behavioral interview questions, and also help students with tailoring their applications and consistently show their best side to admissions committees through a series of informational interviews and application review sessions. If you engage my services, you will secure my commitment to provide you or your child a custom-made and well-tailored educational experience from start to finish.   Admissions Counselling & Skills Mentorship Students under my guidance have been admitted to the following schools: Boarding School admissions: Andover, Exeter, the Lawrenceville School University admissions: University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Yale University, Princeton University, University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins University, University of California, Imperial College London, Kings College London, Princeton University. Competitions: HKIMO (Gold), Kangaroo Mathematics Competition (Gold), Malaysia Earth Science Olympiad (Gold), SEA Games participation (2x)

Out of all the tutors I've encountered throughout my life, Victor is one of a kind. Aside to being a great mentor, he is very knowledgeable in various fields, from Mathematics to Economics and even Psychology just from the love of reading books (he is also resourceful too). He inspires me to dream big and go through the distance, based on his motivational talks we had once in a while and always motivates me to do my best in what I do. I respect him a lot for his understanding, patience and dedication as a mentor to ensure that his students excel in their studies and that's what I admire most. He open my eyes to a lot of things in life with respect to the importance of education and knowledge that will help optimize my chances to achieve my goals. He's definitely my mentor and my life coach! Thank you Victor :)

Victor is incredibly friendly, engaging, and dedicated while he is teaching. Not only that, he is resourceful with class materials (such as providing past years and examiner reports), he is also very thorough when reviewing the work done for classes. By reviewing my work for classes and giving me the necessary tips and tricks in writing, Victor has helped me improve my writing skills.

I can speak English, Malay and basic mandarin. I have experience teaching for 1 year.

Experience

I graduated from Prince of Songkla University as my bachelor's degree. I have been teaching Thai for more than  2 years in Malaysia. So that I understand how to help Malaysian students learn fast and easily. Moreever, it's not only English that I have used to teach Thai but also Malay and basic Mandarin. I can teach Thai at my clients house or workplace. I can also teach at home, in a local cafe or library.

Tutoring Approach

สวัสดีครับ Thank you for visiting my page. I know you are looking for a teacher who can help you improve your Thai. You may learn Thai to make friends business purpose or you are planning to travel in Thailand. You come to the right place😊.   My name is Sun. I'm a Thai native speaker. I have been teaching Thai for more than 3 years in Malaysia and also teaching Thai online. In my class I use many techniques to teach Thai such as "association technique"  Which you will associate new word with old word that you have already remembered and has similar sound. So you can remember the word in long term✌. And I will guide you to learn like a kid. Because I believe that kids learn language without concerning about gramma rules. so there are free to speak naturally👍.  We will learn a lot of conversations that Thai people really use in daily life.  Or if you want to talk like a native or even want to use  Thai slangs I can also teach that. I always try to make my student as fun and interactive as possible😁😁. and I would love to teach you too. check out my page and message me. ***Thai language seems to be so much difficult but in fact it's not. It's just a tonal language. You just need to know how to learn and it will be supper easy and really enjoy. Hope to see you in my class soon.  Thank you

Completed her MMus in Music Performance at Miami University in the United States with full graduate assistantship. Six years of extensive teaching experience in individual and group settings. Prepared students from beginner to advance levels, from the age of 4 and above for exams, competitions, performances and leisure playing. As a return of her hard work and dedication, many of her students enjoyed learning piano and achieved high merits and distinctions in the ABRSM graded exams.

Tutoring Approach

Music enjoyment that lasts a lifetime through piano lessons is my utmost goal. I believe that providing a fun, positive and encouraging environment will benefit students to learn and be better musicians. Teaching students to be thoughtful musicians will also help in their sensitive piano playing. Hence, being able to share is part of the important values in my studio. All lessons will be tailored accordingly to each student. I vary my pedagogical methods depending on the ability and needs of my students to ensure optimal learning in my classes. You will learn how to play the piano in addition with the knowledge of music theory, music history, music aural and musicianship that is relevant to help in your piano playing. Tools (prepared by me) may be used to assist in learning. To achieve effective learning, it is essential to maintain regular contact in regards to students’ progress. Any meetings with parents/guardians of the students regarding the child progress are welcome!* A practice log (detailed feedback and practice suggestions) will also be provided after every lesson to help you in effective practice during the week before the next lesson. *Due to Covid-19 pandemic, all lessons are now conducted remotely for the safety of both parties. Parents/guardians may set a schedule to meet Ms. Lee remotely if needed.

Experience

Completed my Bachelor Degree of Contemporary Music at University College Sedaya International (UCSI) majoring in saxophone performance. With 9 years of teaching experience, currently active as an Educator at International Schools. Woodwind leader for few schools that handle Woodwind Band, Saxophone Quartet and Jazz Band. Outside of the education world, performed in a lot of functions such as weddings, company and other events. Travelled to various countries for international choral competitions.

Tutoring Approach

My approach to tutoring is that I tailor my lesson to the needs of the student. I will tutor in my own home or that of the student. I will vary my style depending on the ability and needs of the student. I aim to run my lesson in support of the progression of my students through their music syllabus, but I am also willing to progress more slowly and focus on particularly weak areas if the student so desires. I will also offer pre-exam revision sessions for all exams including ABRSM, Trinity and IGCSE Exam. As I aim to tailor my lesson to the individual I do expect students to maintain regular contact in regards to their progressions and their individual needs. I expect students come with a clear idea of what it is they hope to get from the music lessons. I will provide each student with a progress log and detailed feedback on how they are performing and areas where they need to improve, I may also set work for my students to complete outside of sessions and for this set work I will listen and observe during the next lesson. I am happy to meet with the parents or guardians of my students prior to the commencement of lesson in order to ascertain what they wish their child to gain from the lesson. I am also happy to meet with parents and guardians regularly during the music lesson to discuss their child's progress and if required I am happy to provide parents with written reports on their child's progress.

Dr Sylvia is an exceptional teacher. She explains concepts clearly from a fresh perspective and takes the extra effort to make sure students understand topics. Her notes are intentional and concise as well so that students are well-covered before exams. Even though I had a hard time with chemistry, Dr Sylvia always makes it fun and simpler to learn.❤️

MASTER IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

Experience

I am a software developer used to work with Intel Microelectronics & currently with Pricewaterhousecoopers Malaysia. I have nearly 6 years of industrial experience in programming languages. The specialty to my class is I will expose the students on how to troubleshoot & solve bugs by using debugging tools from the IDE. This kind of skills are rarely taught since it needs to be picked up from a long time of experience writing code. My wife is also providing Japanese Language training. She is currently conducting private & corporate classes.

Tutoring Approach

1) Explain basic programming theory. 2) Hands on practice. 3) Exposure to easy troubleshooting & solving bugs with IDE debugging tools. 1) Fun & energentic Japanese classes.

Education

Bachelor of Science (Honours) in psychology

Experience

     I am a teacher, formerly a senior teacher at English House. I have produced excellent results with my students there. I have 11 years experience in teaching adults. Also, I taught English to children (including teenagers) for 5 years, at English House and at homes for underprivileged kids. I was previously a top student at Garden International School and Epsom College in England.

Tutoring Approach

      I focus on 3 areas: 1. Helping children (including teenagers) improve their grades 2. Proficiency in the English language for adults and children 3. Helping children weak in the English language improve and increase self-confidence.   I have assisted children from National and International schools in improving their grades. Students who failed their exams improved to passing grades, students with C's improved to B's, and B students became A students.   I help adults and children clients improve their written and spoken English. I use effective techniques to help them improve their grammar. I also can help them improve their essay writing, critical thinking and creativity. Having been a top student in my studying days and having lived in England, I have the experience to be of help.    I also have a special skill at helping children students weak in English and who have poor self-confidence improve. For example, one of my teenage students was failing all his subjects badly, including English. After just over a year with me, his English grade improved from an E to a C. Despite receiving tuition from other teachers in other school subjects, he continued to fail in all subjects except English. He became more self-confident.     I also provide added value by helping adults and children manage stress better, if they are open to it. I do this by sharing a  psychology technique called mindfulness. My clients have responded well: I've seen children's focus and grades improve. Adult clients report managing stress better and being more positive.
