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).
Vivian is a very systematic and punctual tutor. She is also very well versed with the English language and kind at the same time. I notice the huge difference in my English usage from the first day of tuition until today.

Inspiring, motivating and understanding.

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.

- Schedule flexibiity - Punctual - Always explain learning syllabus in local language/slang usage i.e china/taiwan vs malaysia or sabah local dialect - Straightforward method of teaching/guiding - Simple and easy to understand learning materials - Able to explain and answer questions comprehensively
I like her honesty in teaching. I am a working (and busy) working adult with an intention to persue study. So since MUET is a must course to enroll to the University of my likings, so I thought a simple preperatory MUET class will do as I thought I am good enough to go. After attended few classes with her, she honestly told me that I could not make it there with my current performance (and dicipline) plus I had given her in such a short time and preassure, so she almost gave me up. Realising the weakness part in me, stretch myself to learn again and attended the Fundational English. Throughout the first session, I realised that there are plenty room for improvements that we can discover to be more literate. Entering the second session, the mood of fun learning changed into combat mode- as we target for the best scores we could. Honestly, I had targetted Band 3 for myself. When the results came, I managed to get 4.5! For me, the result is not only about scores, but it also includes some wisdom change of my life to become better. Thanks Ms. Vivian!

Bachelor of Arts in Music Study
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.
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.

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.

Bachelor in Medical Bioscience
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.
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.
