Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Purdue University, United States of America
I hold a BSc. in Computer Science from Purdue University in the United States of America, a top 20 university in the United States of America in the domain of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. I am currently a doctoral student ( Ph.D. Candidate ) at Purdue University. During my time here in the USA, I have published in reputable international journals and have spoken at several major international conferences to disseminate my scientific work in the field of artificial intelligence, so English comes naturally to me. I scored straight A's (12 A+) during my SPM in 2012, straight A's (8 A's) during my PMR in 2010, and straight A's (7 A's) during my UPSR in 2007. I was a star student in Malaysia prior to furthering my career in the United States, and I can assist you in accomplishing great things.
Depending on the students' preference, my tutoring style can either be a student-led session or a tutor-led session. For student-led sessions, the students will discuss with me on the areas that they intend to build their confidence in. For tutor-led sessions, we will go over the topics according to the syllabus and I will assign you homework problems where we can work on it together during the session or during your own time. I also specialize in helping students preparing for international English language examinations such as IELTS, TOEFL, SAT, GMAT, and GRE. I have scored very well in these international examinations myself, and I can teach you the skills to do very well in them.
Jia is a native English speaker. She is teaching English to my child and I can see the huge improvement in my child's English within a few weeks. My child really enjoys her teaching. I am glad to finally find a suitable English tutor for my child
Cambridge CELTA, Bachelor of Laws (Hons)
A full-time tutor and native speaker of English, I specialise in teaching English for both exam preparation and communicative purposes. Over the last eight years, I’ve taught students of all levels and ages, accumulating more than 4,000 hours doing so. At the same time, I've also worked with students of various ethnicities and cultural backgrounds, with many of my students coming from countries like Korea, China, Japan, India, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Libia, and the Netherlands. My extensive experience in language teaching has not only enabled me to easily adapt my material and teaching style to suit a wide range of learners, but it has also allowed me to quickly identify the unique strengths and weaknesses of each student. Additionally, my familiarity with scoring and technique requirements of exams like IELTS, IGCSE and Checkpoint mean that I’m able to offer dedicated courses for each of these exams. In terms of my formal qualifications, I am certified by the University of Cambridge under the English teaching programme CELTA, and I hold a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) from Bristol Law School. Further certification by Dyslexia International and University College London (UCL) also allows me to assist children with learning difficulties, such as ADHD and Dyslexia. Presently, I am in the process of completing the prestigious Cambridge DELTA course to further enhance my ability to offer effective and highly personalised English lessons.
An initial assessment is conducted to help determine a student’s level of proficiency and identify areas for improvement. A personalised study plan is then provided to let students know their strengths and weaknesses as well as the time it would take for them to achieve their goals. I always welcome feedback to ensure that the materials I use are suitable for the learner and that it matches with their expectations of the lessons. Exam Candidates In order to help students understand what is expected of them in an exam, I work closely with the scoring requirements of that exam. Once students are familiar with the marking criteria, we practise applying that knowledge in a series of practice questions and past papers. Challenging areas are given more attention, while a systematic approach is used to reduce mistakes and improve response quality over time. I find that one of the reasons why many students fail to succeed in exams is because they are unsure of what is expected of them or how an examiner might view their work. My approach guides them in this area. Language Learners Believing that language learning should never be contained within a textbook or the four walls of a classroom, my approach focuses on language aspects that are relevant and immediately applicable to a person’s daily life. In this way, students have a greater chance of remembering and using what they’ve learnt in lessons. Meanwhile, a heavy emphasis is placed on aspects like vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation, as I believe these to be the core of language learning and necessary for long-term improvement. In order to improve fluency, students should expect to engage in relaxed discussions on up-to-date topics that match their interests, while occasional role-plays or games will be used to practise vocabulary or grammar. Rest assured that my lessons are always detailed and thorough, with practice and error correction given by the end of each lesson to solidify learning.
Firstly, What I like about Timothy Au, he is ready to take responsibility to teach me in short period. Next, I like the way he makes me feel confident when i speak with him although my English is moderate level. Lastly, the slide that given really help me in writing and reading section in MUET exam. The homework and tips really work on me to improve my writing, reading and speaking task for MUET. I highly recommend he as teacher👍
Timothy has been helping me with my writing and conversational English for the past few months. During our first meeting, he was able to pinpoint areas I needed to work on. I like that he customizes his lessons based on my strengths and weaknesses. He is creative in his approach to teaching, so our lessons are never boring. He has also been diligent in following up with me and sharing additional material after our lessons, which I really appreciate. Thank you, Timothy, you have been a great help.
He personalised all our lessons for me, which was great.
Timothy is a very passionate and creative English teacher. He personalises study plan according to my needs and weaknesses, and this has been helpful in improving my English. Attending his lessons is also never boring as he often comes out with different ideas in teaching.
He knows how to let students understand complex grammar of English.
Timothy is very passionate and hardworking teacher. What I like most about Timothy is that he's willing to not only explain easily; when he point out my errors, he can also quickly identify what my weakness is and always note it to prepare for next class. It helped a lot to make up for my weak point. Other than that,Timothy can also adapt to teach any kind of students just as he is teaching my mom,me and my sister as well! Even though we all have different levels and goals. He's been helping us to improve in many ways!9
Very professional, amazingly friendly, most proactive and exceedingly warm. From my 9-year-old daughter, Ď Please add - very kind, made my education so much fun, the bestí.
His friendliness and gentle approach towards teaching children to create an immediate positive environment for learning are effective. Teacher Timothy provides a detailed report on his student's strengths and weaknesses. This proves to be very helpful for students as well as parents.
Timothy managed to improve my writing abilities for my IELTS exam from a 6.5 to 7+ with just 4 classes! I highly recommend him if you are taking your IELTS exam.
I liked Tim's humble and friendly approach in dealing with students. Although my English was at a good level, Tim helped me improve and corrected some mistakes. His knowledge of the English language was quite impressive and he speaks with very little accent, which I think will help ESL students. He helped me prepare for the IGCSE English as a Second Language test and I managed to get an A.
He is a fantastic guy with great teaching skills. I had only few days for my exam but he did insist me on the skills to improve my scores in the PTE examination. Moreover, he was also very friendly guy who you can share all your ideas to make you feel more comfortable. I would highly recommend him.
He made time in his busy schedule to fit me in, as the time I contacted him. I was going to sit for my IELTS in 3 weeks. He always is available if I need assisitance with any of the practice questions and he made sure that I had enough materials. Amazing tutor!
For the past six months I have been taking O-Level classes from Mr Timothy. He is responsible and makes an effort to organize his classes well by preparing worksheets, slides, past year papers, etc. I have learnt a lot from him, like how to be organized. I have gained a lot of knowledge on exam preparations from him. He also makes the surrounding comfortable and conducive while he is teaching and he gives you a lot of confidence.
Timothy worked with my daughter for 6 months to prepare for IGCSE English as a First Language. I liked the way he motivated her to aim for the best in the exams. The tips and guidance he provided were also very helpful, and I believe he contributed to her wellbeing & her success in achieving an A for her final English exam. I'm happy that you are part of her achievement. Thank you so much!
Mr. Timothy is a teacher who is very focused and dedicated in his teaching. He will try his best to help you pass your exam, and he will give you all the material you need for practice. He usually corrects my speech when I am wrong, and I can ask him about any words that I'm not sure about. I enjoy his classes because they are fun, and sometimes we will make some jokes. Mr. Timothy is a really good teacher. I highly recommend him to others!
Tim helped me to prepared my writing and speaking for the IELTS test. We spent most of the time on writing and I improved a lot with time management. I was worried about not being able to finish the writing test in time but it turns out that I still have time for checking grammar at the end. We practiced speaking test at Timís place as itís quieter and more similar to actual test scenario. We only practiced twice because the writing part was more important for me, but the practice helped me to be less nervous when it came to the real test. Overall, I think the lesson with Tim was very helpful for my IELTS preparation, especially for the writing.
Timothy has assisted me a great deal in preparing for my IELTS writing examinations. Heís an excellent teacher and know how to pick up on my strengths and weaknesses in a short period of time. He is well versed with the IELTS marking system & could point out my errors in order to achieve the required band score. Not only that, with my busy schedule I find that heís flexible If I need to plan a couple of last minute classes to achieve certain aims of the exam. I strongly recommend him for anyone planning to sit for an English exam!
Great lesson outline and overview of what is to be expected; well prepared and concise sessions would recommend 10/10
I have been under Tim's tutelage for a few months and I must say it's been quite an experience. Tim's way of approaching learning is by treating his client as he would his friends and also through systematic methods that are fun and easy to understand. I would recommend him for a quality English tutor.
Tim has helped me to progress from band 6 to band 7 in IELTS writing in less than 5 weeks. Before we started lessons, I had taken IELTS 3 times. First, he examined my writing and identified the issues that I need to remedy. Then he customized a specific plan for me and followed up with weekly action items. Tim also advised me on how to allocate time to practice different areas of writing such as structuring, improving paragraph development, fixing repetitive spelling mistakes, etc. I am very happy that I found Tim and I highly recommend him as a tutor.
I am an university student and I have had the pleasure working with him for past couple of months. His teaching method has greatly developed my fundamentals in English especially grammar. If I am to say one thing I like about his teaching method, it would have to be how he always pinpoints my mistakes after each lesson.
I went for an IELTS crash course with Mr Tim just a week before my actual IELTS exam. Mr Tim is very well versed in all there is to know about IELTS and he explained to me from scratch how to go about each component. He emphasises on the IELTS examinerís marking technique and this gave me a solid studying foundation before taking the exams. Tim is super generous with his notes, he provides whatever notes and revision books you require without any additional payment. I managed to achieve Band 7.5 overall, and because of that I strongly recommend his services.
Hi Timothy! I would like to thank you for all the support. It was extremely helpful and eased my path in IELTS exam. The comments for the essays and your responsibility were helpful. Thank you again!
Helped me a lot to improve my IELTS writing, from a 6.5 to a 7.0 band within just 1 week. A lot of resources were provided and explained all the important details on both the writing tasks as well as speaking task.
The lessons were clear and the contents and teaching are effective as well. Tim know the IELTS marking process well, so i got clear instructions of what to improve and how to score. Other than that, the lessons were completely taught in an English-speaking enviroment which help me gain confidence when speaking English since I dont speak english regularly. The writing part is the most difficult to me, however, with significant help from the lessons and endless training, I am able to write a proper essay in 40 min, which to be honest, was very difficult to me in the beginning. All in all, after i had experience about 7 lessons and taking IELTS exam, I think the lessons were essential to me and in fact, I may not score 6.5 without the help of these lessons. Therefore, big appreciation to Tim!
Overall, I was very satisfied with the IELTS class, the required fields were covered thoroughly. The fact that the marking scheme was properly explained, was most helpful for me. So,10/10

I needed to take IELTS last minute, for my work visa application. I was panicking and worried because it was unexpected and I only had short duration of time. I'm thankful that i managed to find Timothy on Myprivate Tutor. He is extremely patient. I went through a few classes with him before the exam. He provided all the materials and gave me some examples on how the exam would be like. In the end, I got higher than the expected grades, which was according to Tim‚Äôs assessment. Here I would highly recommend anyone who need a tutor for Ielts to refer to Timothy!
I‚Äôve been taking Timothy‚Äôs English lesson once a week for 2 years. I highly recommend his lesson. He always tries to identify what is my weakness/ strength in English, and points them out precisely. Thanks to his pertinent feedback, I can feel rest assured with my English now.
Timothy guides Hanis to construct sentences using sensory details. He invokes her mind to think out of the box and write descriptively. His gentle demeanour and encouraging approach makes her comfortable to relate to him. Her essays have improved tremendously under his tutelage. Even her Y6 class teacher is impressed with her progress.
I have been taking English classes with Timothy twice a month since 2019 mainly to practice speaking and pronunciation. Timothy is a very friendly and patient teacher. He always explains difficult vocabulary by giving me different examples. I'm also having business English class with him, and he will ensure I have different topic for discussion in each class.
