Mr Wong is a compassionate teacher that has many areas of expertise. He is very patient and can communicate with you well not only during but also after tuition hours. He makes lessons very engaging and enjoyable. He manages to make physics fun!!! He likes to teach me about the importance of understanding rather than memorising, which has impacted me a lot in a positive manner. He is always reluctant and prepared to answer difficult questions. Mr Wong is very warm and accessible. After meeting him I have seen a great increase in my grades. He is a great mentor and tutor to me.

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.
