BA Degree in Media Studies, Murdoch University, Perth

Experience

With the12-year education in Chinese schools, 16-year working experience in writing and coaching at different places including China, I understand the challenges, confusion and study techniques of learning Mandarin as the second language. I've been teaching mostly thenon-Chinese learners, on 1 to 1 basis as I believe personalizing study plan based on differentlearning styles isimportant. I always apply thecreative approach thatI've worked for brain training centretoimprove thelearning efficiency. I'm keen to share my knowledge with both children and adult. Let'stry a class to experiencethe interactive learning session.

Tutoring Approach

(1) Assessing student level and learning style to personalize study plan (2) Improving memory power through interactive conversation, repetitive exercises, creativepictures and show-and-tell (3)Ensuring the language learned is practical to apply in daily life to induce self-learning (4) For exam takers, I will share the best practice on how to answer the questions and emphasize on the areas for improvement

Ms. Heng is a highly passionate and committed teacher. She evaluate my daughter's learning style and customised learning methodologies that suits my daughter so that she learns better. Her face to face interactions with kids are great and she uses different study tools and materials to keep her classes interesting. She put in lots of effort in preparing learning materials and she certainly run the extra miles to ensure my daughter cope well. She is highly flexible and she offers effective online learning and tutoring during MCO and CMCO period through Zoom. To keep my daughter's interest and attention during online sessions, she utilised different programmes to deliver her lessons. She would prepare online quiz, reading materials and assessment modules to help my daughter learn faster. I'm would highly recommend Ms.Heng. Ms.Heng has been tutoring my daughter for over 8 months now and I've seen vast improvement in my daughter's Chinese . My daughter is more confident now and she even love Chinese as a subject. Thanks Ms. Heng for great effort!

Bachelor in Chemical Engineering (Environment)

Experience

Hi there! I am Aizat, a Native Bahasa (Malay) Language Trainer where I help ex-pats (foreigners) all around the world to overcome their language learning journey using my unique cheatsheet so that they can practice what they have learned in real life and become conversational within a short period of time. Using the same method, I also help people to learn Basic Mandarin through meetup and private tutoring.    I also have been featured on Brandwithme Asia for my "Art of Learning Languages"

Tutoring Approach

A same proven method from polyglot to learn the language will be used for tutoring. Instead of remembering a lot of words, you will be exposed to the common sentences from week 1 and the chance to practice it straight away. i) Anybody who want to learn Malay ii) Helping anyone who just wants to start learning Mandarin or iii) Anyone who still in beginner stage for so long   I believe through Openness that you can learn any language. I am willing to share to you how to approach the language and instil the same confidence in you so that you will not be stuck alone. Using the same method, I now know more languages than most people. Trust me. if someone asks what is the thing that worth doing it badly, it's language.

Friendly, patient, clear, structured, fun instruction in Malay!! Aizat is a confident and able teacher who is friendly and fun to learn Malay with. Aizat tailors his teaching to my needs as a beginner learning the language for the first time. The lessons progress at a speed that is comfortable for me, allowing me to cement my understanding as I progress. I like the fact that the content of the lessons is structured and has a clear focus/objective, I can see the progression I making. Furthermore, I am developing an understanding of the mechanics of the language in a context that allows me to apply what I have learned in 'real life' situations. I am still having lessons with Aizat and cannot recommend his teaching highly enough!

Clare

Aizat is friendly and good-natured. His teaching style is flexible and lets me decide what I am interested in learning. But if you prefer him to take the lead in the content, he will most certainly do that for you.

B.A German studies & Linguistics

Experience

I graduated from University Putra Malaysia (UPM) in early 2020, majoring in the German language for my Bachelor's degree, and also studied English Linguistics as my minor. With TDN4 in TestDaF, I am able to teach A1-A2 level of German for beginners. As for English, I scored Band 8 in IELTS and Band 5 in MUET. I am able to teach English as first/ second/ foreign language.  Growing up trilingual in English, Mandarin and Cantonese, I can also assist with learning Mandarin as second/ foreign language. Currently tutoring English, Mandarin and German (including online and face-to-face) since July 2020 for students over 6 different nationalities, ranging from age 6 - 30, with more than 100 hours of online teaching experience. Prior to that, I have 3 months of english teaching experience in a local private education centre on a 1-to-1 basis for students aged 4-14. Check out more at my tutoring Instagram account @study_with_cass *prefers teaching young adult and adult learners

Tutoring Approach

Materials would be prepared and no additional books are required to be bought. Visual-aids, games, interaction, and activities would be incorporated as part of the lesson in order to facilitate a fun learning environment. The speed of the lesson will go according to the student's needs and ability to cope.

A very pleasant and professional tutor. She has been very understanding of my needs in learning mandarin and i could really see her effort to accommodate them as she is well prepared for classes. She actively engages with me throughout the lesson which pushes me to learn more. Personally, I feel she has lots to offer me as my tutor and she makes each class worth it .If anyone is looking for a language tutor, she is definitely one i would recommend. I'm definitely satisfied to have her as my tutor :)

Cassandra is a great teacher that is able to help me learn Mandarin in a fun manner. Since Iā€™m learning conversational Mandarin, Cassandra makes the classes very interactive. The exercises/practise each week are different which keeps me on my toes and makes class interesting. The role-plays on day to day conversations are fun and it has helped me converse with my Mandarin speaking friends. Overall, I thoroughly enjoy learning Mandarin with Cassandra and I look forward to my classes with her. Definitely would recommend her to anyone who wishes to learn how to speak Mandarin.

PhD in Educational Psychology

Experience

Dr. Yap is currently the Senior Lecturer for Psychology at one of the universities in KL. Over the years, he has conducted various psychology seminars and workshops for the students and academic staff. Dr. Yap has published few journal articles and he was previously involved in a national research project. He completed both of his bachelor's degree and master's degree in the UK and his PhD from University of Technology, Malaysia.

Tutoring Approach

My tutoring philosophy is mostly influenced by my university experience in the UK. Back then, our university professors would always inspire us to share ideas not only on psychology-related matters but also on things that can be fascinating. They taught us to see the problems from different perspectives and to find the answers independently. Ever since I started my teaching career, inspiring young generations to think actively has then become my utmost tutoring aspiration.  I tend to customise and personalise lessons for every single individual as I believe that there is no one-size-fits-all approach.

Degree in Business Management

Experience

Though my highest qualification is degree in business management, my greatest strength is to build up a potential student who can grow happily with passionate and open minded thinking. Many students failed to deliver in their academic, not because they are stupid or lazy. It is because they have lost direction and teacher failed to build up their interests and confidence level. In the past, I have students from age 10 to 50 years old. Now again I have a few teenager students.

Tutoring Approach

Plan syllabus that suits a student's needs. Open Questions & Answer: discuss, work on one step by one step to check for the student's understanding at which level before proceeding to the next stage. Encourage students to work independently, and write freely based from the project or the material asked. Rephrase a student's question into your own words, be patience, supportive, and encouraging. My philosophy is 'No stupid question or answer.' Respect and Resilience are the keywords to success.        One-to-One tuition rate: For primary school, fee per hour varies from RM45 to RM50 depending on online or at home. For secondary school, fee per hour varies from RM55 to RM65 depending on online or at home. For private primary and secondary school, the fee per hour rate is different.  Any student who takes 1.5 hour per week or from the same family more than two or a group of three from the same level per week will enjoy a special online and at home rate.

Experience

General Information I have 9 years of teaching experience. I specialise in teaching Chinese-Mandarin, Chinese-Cantonese, English and Malay. I also offer Italian, Spanish and French class. English (A) Business English I am currently teaching Business English to China Communication Construction Company (the company who built Penang Second Bridge and constructing high-speed railway in Malaysia), Defacto International Fashion Brand, and several directors and top managers working in tourism and hospitality line. (B) Exam Preparation I have 4 years experience in teaching Cambridge English syllabus, and therefore I am very familiar with the categorisation of Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Moreover, I can also help to prepare International exam such as IELTS. Mandarin (A) Business Mandarin Preparing managers, students in communicating in business and office environment which main language is Chinese/Mandarin. (B) Academic Mandarin Professionally trained to deliver lectures to prepare students for HSK or any International Examination related to Mandarin-Chinese. (C) Chinese Culture Able to teach appreciation of Chinese classical literature and texts. Fitness Possesses American Council on Exercise Certificate for Personal Training and was the personal trainer and Fitness Manager for more than 3 years. Qualified lifeguard certified by Malaysian Lifesaving Society (Bronze Medallion) and International Lifesaving Society (Belgium) and therefore can teach swimming.

Tutoring Approach

Summary 1. Language Placement Tet 2. Understand the specific needs of students 3. Design relevant and effective syllabus 4. Deliver lecture and observe the development of learners 5. Make changes when possible according to feedback 6. Make sure that the lecture is delivered in enjoyable and effective manner. For language teaching, it is important to take care of the usage of language (grammar, vocabulary), cultural and social aspects and the pedagodical methods when transfering the knowledge to the students. General and specific usage intended to be used by the students when commanding the language will be taken into consideration. To strengthen the memory and impact of learning, appropriate stimulation method has to be used including activities, graphic etc.  Many people take language learning too easy and think that it can be managed in short time. Unless you are a genius, it's very rare for a person to be proficient in a language with just 10 - 20 hours of learning. Experience and research shown that to complete a typical CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) level will need at least 80 to 200 hours. There is no short cut in learning a language and students have to be patient and know what you want for sure. Or else, it will be a waste of time and money.

I was trained under an experienced tutor in tuition center. Then I worked for 2 years in tuition center. I handled Chinese, English, Mathematics and Science classes for standard 1 to 3. Later, I worked as a home tutor, based in Kuala Lumpur/Selangor area. I had been teaching Standard 3 to 6 students for the subjects of Chinese, English, Mathematics, Science and Malay. I provide assistance and guidance for English native speaker who intends to enter Chinese school. I also have experiences teaching Basic Adult English and Mandarin, for both Business and General Communication purposes. As I work in legal field and for US government authorities and private sector as an interpreter, I am familiar with official pronounciation of both Mandarin and English language.

Tutoring Approach

 I set out study module enabling student to know what they will be learning in the upcoming classes with me. Then, I conduct a preliminary interview and trial class with student to understand the ability, needs and learning goal, then we work together to finalize the study module and materials according to the students' requirements and aims. My teaching approach varies depending on the student’s needs and learning style. For slow-learner, I will teach them step-by-step to ensure them understand the subjects and topics. I emphasize on understanding the concept, instead of pure memorization. Once the students understand the concept, they are able to think critically and tackle different types of questions and circumstances. I will also then focus on the past year questions to ensure students get familiar with the exam style (if applicable)

Education

TCSOL; CELTA; B.Sc.(Hons.) with Petroleum Chemistry

Experience

With an early working background as a trilingual translator, I was constantly gravitated by the calling of teaching and eventually, by random chances, I was called to teach in formal schools,language academies and tutorial centres. Since then I have been enthusiastically serving a total of 20 years in teaching English,Malay, Chinese covering both international(British, American, Singapore) and national syllabuses, business, drama, literature and customized. The spectrum of my students ranges from private leaners,school students to corporate employees.  

Tutoring Approach

The challenge in tutoring is not about `what-is' but `how-to'. As every learner is different, creativity is undeniably essential to enlighten a frustrated student in a fun,  refreshing way of learning instead of hardship. This is my primary aspiration. Hence, teaching is an art, rather than a science. As an astute educator, I empathize, motivate, inspire in  guiding, coaching and training learners to overcome their learning  difficulties. Not limiting to this, I'm always passionately prepared to devise different approaches in handling motivation, discipline and  behaviorial issues. To say the least, I have well-recognized track records  in dealing with various kinds of leanering issues.  Education is a job of giving. You can't give what you don't have. As a person who is eagerly  inquisitive and caring, I passionately enjoy giving and sharing  knowledge and life experience in my job.  Should you have any interest for a better pictures of my teaching, you are cordially invited to visit my facebook (Due to privacy setting, you can add-friend to understand more).As I seldom check my inbox overhere, preferred contact method: WhatsApp/SMS your location, short/long term prior to appointment on phone. Thank you. Happy learning!

We are a Singaporean expat family with 2 kids, struggle finding good tutor for slow learners. I highly recommend Ms. Lee as a tutor. She has been teaching my children for 1 years and she has a wonderful rapport with people especially with my children. Ms. Lee has the ability to connect with them and her talent with teaching simple concepts, as well as advanced topics. Ms. Lee has excellent written and communication skills, extremely organized and most importantly, responsible and reliable. Ms. Lee accomplished these tasks with great initiative and with a very positive attitude.

I'm a Japanese expat in Kuala Lumpur and I was facing critical dilemma of communication in English. Ms. Lee was a responsible tutor and she dedicated to plan and tailored-make a learning syllabus which only for my personal needs - listening and pronunciation. I was a very busy employee so learning progress was not speedy but Ms. Lee was very patient, considerate and professional in guiding and couching me about my difficulties, and i managed to overcome my old habit of strong Japanese accent, at the same time improved in my listening, grammar and vocabulary. Besides, Ms. Lee also helped me a lot with my presentation in which, she is not only having a good background of it, but also a very personable person herself. As a result, I let my wife and son learn from Ms. Lee too. I'm also very thankful for her flexibility in accommodating my busy schedule. She is also punctual person. I highly recommend Ms. Lee if you are looking for a professional private tutor.

We are 2 Korean brothers studying in Malaysia. My younger brother failed in his English accessment test. As a result, he was unable to enroll into the school. We were recommended by a Korean friend to Ms Lee for English and Chinese home-schooling. My brother is a fun lover and enjoy no-study life. I heard that the korean friend's son became looking forwarding to go to the class of Ms. Lee after 3-month of resistance. So we gave it a try. My brother told me that Ms. Lee is a good teacher and he respects her, although she could be strict sometimes. I thank Ms. Lee because she is a responsible, caring teacher. My parents are in Korea, but we can count on Ms. Lee as our home tutor.

I'm a Malaysian business owner with limited formal languages communication skill. I have several English tutors at the same time, but Ms. Lee is the one who can teach me with multilingual explanation. She interviewed me in depth to understand my background so to analyse and gauge a realistic learning expectation with me. She is a strategist. She is also a punctual, dedicated and no-nonsense person. Now, she is also a private tutor for my wife and children.

We are Irish/Malay family with 2 boys. I was recommended by my Singaporean friend to Ms. Lee, learning that her daughter scored full A under the guidance of Ms Lee. We had Ms. Lee for exam preparation. She is a honest and dedicated teacher, who is direct and straight forward to the points in addressing the progress and performance. She is trustworthy and we count on her for the learning matter. Thank you.

I'm Japanese pre-university student in Malaysia, through the recommendation of my parents' friend, teacher Lee helped me a lot with my IELTS and English communication problems. Lessons are very relaxing, easy and enjoyable. I highly recommend teacher Zara Sofia Lee as a personal tutor.

We are Canadian expat living in Kuala Lumpur with a special child. We had tried a few private tutor and we were happy that Teacher Lee managed to handle my daughter who is willful and needs much patience and grace. They got along well after a short while and my daughter turned out like Miss Lee and always looked forward to having more lessons with her.

We have been 30 months with Sofia now, recommended by our neighbour. My kids are both in junior and high school. Started with one subject, then we added other subjects under my kid's request just because my kid would like to her stay longer. She is getting more and more looking forward to the lessons to spend time with Sofia. It was a progressive journey too, filled with happy moments for my kid ( who is rather hard to manage). Sofia's creativity and character are suitable for my kid. I vouch for Sofia.

Education

Bachelor of Contemporary Performance

Experience

I'm a Fresh graduate from the Australian Institute of Music, Bachelor of contemporary performance majoring in Vocal. I am able to speak multiple languages which includes English, Mandarin, Korean, Malay, Cantonese and Hokkien. 

Tutoring Approach

I like to start my lesson by listening to my students voice to get an idea of his/her voice range, technique, and style that is suitable for the particular student hence it will be great if the student is able to prepare a song of their choice in any genre that they like and show me during the first lesson. After that is done, I will start by warming up and building a strong base of techniques which includes vocal control, pitch, rhythm etc. This way it will be easier for the students to build more on top of it including the texture, emotions, presentation etc. I do not like to stress my students out and prefer to teach my students by encouraging them and making sure that the students is always in a comfortable state during class, this will allow the students to enjoy their lesson and absorbing the information learn during class. Other than that, Practising is the main commitment of this journey.
