Miss Tan is a great tutor. She is attentive to the parts that I don’t understand. She is also very easy to talk to so it makes discussing things I find difficult easier to bring up.

Miss Vivian is highly professional when it comes to teaching. Her consideration to find ways for improvement is highly appreciated as she wants what is best for me academically. Her strictness and teaching discipline is also one of the positive things that has pressured me to do better. She is supportive and flexible when it comes to time management. I could only highlight about how well prepared she is when it comes to her teaching strategies. Overall, Miss Vivian is an excellent english tutor (MUET).

Inspiring, motivating and understanding. She have the awareness about my daily life and surrounding so she could adapt it to her timetable, so she could manage it properly for both side so I could cope with her teaching. She thought thoroughly about her teaching scope. In a proficient ways to apply her education strategy to her student. That every minute of her time in educating me counts as efficient and effective for my time. She motivated me by pursuing something more than what i have aimed for. At first, i did not mind to have at least Band 2. But she beg to differ, requested for me to aim higher, at least Band 3. She was very strict about it, because she wants what is best for her student, more chances and opportunity to receive education offers from any institute. So i put my effort by aiming for Band 3. Who could ever thought i got Band 4 in the end but i did! Highly appreciate her teachings as well as her moral guidance in helping me to aim higher and widen my education purpose.

Bachelor of Arts in Music Study

Experience

Hello and greetings, I'm Kit. I am a UMS (Universiti Malaysia Sabah) graduate with a Bachelor of Art's in Music Study, and I started teaching since I was still a student. throughout the years, I've met many wonderful teachers and students which allowed me to gain experience from them. My strength is that i am observant, as i can determine a proper lesson plan for students according to their level of musicality.

Tutoring Approach

My aims are to make lessons enjoyable and easy to understand. I believe everyone has a different level/sense of musicality. Thus, my approach is to make lessons easy and will be catered according to their needs and understanding. What better way to learn, appreciate and play your favourite songs by picking up a musical instrument like piano? Of course, media will be utilized to enhance the lessons during class. Side note, I do tuition for lower primary (Year 1-3) for English and Bahasa Melayu subjects.

Diploma in Science

Experience

While studying for my diploma course at the university my lecturers had recommended me as a tutor teaching Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry for secondary students at a local tuition centre. After graduating from university, I taught at a tuition centre teaching Mathematics and English for primary and secondary students. Soon after that, I started my own home-based tuition at my house teaching English, Mathematics and Bahasa Melayu for primary and secondary students.

Tutoring Approach

I prepare my lessons beforehand and start it with the basic fundamentals. Starting from there, I assess the students' ability and adjust the level of lessons according to their needs. I believe that flexibility is important as well as structured learning. This will enable the student to learn on their own pace yet not left behind.

Bachelor in Medical Bioscience

Experience

Aren't you tired of BORING, MONOTONOUS way of learning? It was all exercises after exercises and it feels like chores instead of something that you ACTUALLY looking forward to? I firmly believe that only when a positive vibe and a harmonious connection between the tutor and the student have been established, then only a proper, effective learning will occur. What once was a chore, is now a fun, intellectual SHARING session where both the tutor and the student get to be wiser each session.

Tutoring Approach

We will start with small talks, I would love to know your thoughts on the world, your interest and hobbies. Then I will share with you mine. This will happen intermittently during the session to keep the interest going. Depending on the subject and timeline, we will approach the subject through either real exam questions followed by breakdown of answers OR a brief lecture on the topic. I will try my best to relate the topic with simple logical explanation and point out examples in real life. At the end of each session, a week long worth of questions which the students could attempt will be given to ensure a continuous learning journey and will be discussed in the following sessions.

Tutoring Approach

1. Fostering independence: To teach them to become independent learners: by asking questions that don�t just have a �yes or no� answer or by applying the Socratic method to point out illogical conclusions made by the student. 2. Assessment through games: After teaching a particular topic, test the student�s comprehension through additional problems and games. 3. Use of Fast-Paced Drills: Tutor the student in a subject that involves a significant degree of memory work (such as Maths), drill the student frequently on particular method to ensure they retain important facts and information. 4. Requesting feedback: The ultimate aim is to make the most of the student�s limited time and resources, so their own views on the structure and content of the session would always be of primary importance.
