CELTA - Cambridge English

Experience

I am an English Language teacher based in Penang. I am a native speaker from the UK. Since completing the CELTA teaching course in December 2016 I have been teaching adults and younger learners at local language schools. 

Tutoring Approach

I teach both groups and individuals and my approach in both cases is to encourage the students to do most of the speaking, while keeping mine  to a minimum.  Learning materials are selected to be appropriate and relevant for each student and lessons are conducted in accordance with the student’s needs.  Practical dialogues are used to cover speaking, reading, writing and listening and to demonstrate grammar in a natural and relaxed way.  The lessons will help students become proficient in the use of everyday English and communicate effectively with confidence.

B.A. (ENGLISH), major in English, minor in Mandarin

Experience

I have been teaching for several years at a language school. My strength is to be patient and focus on one thing at one time. Being patient will only work if the student is eager to learn. I have experience teaching proficiency courses. My students are always challenged to do things that are slightly difficult than they should. My students eventually learn from there and they are able to do much better.

Tutoring Approach

I usually teach according to students' needs. I prefer a meet up before the agreement of both sides for the class. This is to get to know both teacher and student. Although private tutoring is normally one-to-one or a very small class, I always put in effort to have some simple activities in class. This is to get rid of boring classes. At the same time, student gets to communicate more and practice the language. From time to time, there is also an assessment given to check whether my students are on track.

I've earned my JLPT 1 in the first year of my study in Japan, continued by a 4 years of degree in a locally renowned university Keio. I had been a part time tutor teaching Japanese English and vice versa. I design my classes accordingly to different needs but will always be fun as I focus on active engagement and easy communication. Either it be skill up for your upcoming trip, preparing for your test, or would just like to enjoy anime without subtitles, you are mostly welcomed!

Tutoring Approach

I would like to invite you for a free lesson, which I will know more about your needs and level to design your own very different classes. I would be able to assist you on reading, listening, and writing aspect, regardless whichever you would like to emphasize on. Depends on the level, I may converse fully/ partially in Japanese during the class (no worries, I did that before and there will be no problem in communication). As I strongly believe, based on my own very personal experience, an appropriate environment is the biggest key to master a new language.

Education

MBA

Experience

I graduated with second upper class in BSc in Business (2010). Currently, I am studying MBA in UNITAR International University. I have almost completed all subjects with current CGPA of 3.90. During my university studies, I was working as a part time tutor for around 4 years. I was handling BM, BI and Maths tuition classes for Standard 4 till Form 3. I am also a certified TESOL (English) teacher. Subsequently after graduation, I started my working life in commerce and banking industry.

Tutoring Approach

My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and  being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems.   My philosophy is based on the idea that learning happens in an environment of mutual respect in which the student is encouraged to think and make new connections for themselves.  My experience has been that one-to-one personal tuition has a unique value to students because of the ability to resolve the students’ personal barriers to learning in a way that lays the foundations for a deep and lasting understanding of the subject. My approach varies depending on the student’s needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world exampleswherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continually.  I don’t lecture to students or ask them to memorise things.  Nor do I do the students’ homework for them! I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student’s understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as essay structure and technique, logical thought, and the effective use of numbers and graphs.

I make teaching experience interesting by conducting discussions and quizzes as to have a better understanding that how much the student has imbibed and what more we need to work on. I work according to a planned schedule, so the syllabus is completed on time and we have ample time of revision. This makes student work under no pressure.

Tutoring Approach

I believe in Practical Knowledge and not in Theory if a person knows the practical implementation, the theory would be the easiest part in learning, I will teach with real life and live example and that too not kind of Teacher-Student but as friend-mentor.

I took IELTS in August and got 6.0 for writing. I retake again in December and went to her 2 weeks before my IELTS. I specifically requested guidance in writing and it improved from 6.0 to 6.5. I find that she is very dedicated as she checked and analysed all my previous essays to check for common mistakes that I tend to make when I write essays. The common mistakes she detected has helped me a lot in improving my writing. I find that she is very sincere in teaching as she really makes sure that I understand the items that she has taught. She also gave me a lot of tips to help me get higher marks in the IELTS Writing.

I teach the National, as well as the IGCSE English syllabus. I also train students for the ESOL, IELTS and MUET examinations. I believe that having a good command over the English language opens doors to a great array of opportunities, and therefore, providing people with the right set of English skills is one of my passions.

I plan my lesson, and make all the necessary preparation ahead, including photocopy of handouts, and lesson content. Lessons involve reading, writing, listening and speaking. Having a good command over the English language, especially grammar, allows me to deliver lessons of impeccable quality.

Tutoring Approach

I'm exploring new ways of teaching Mandarin(Chinese), which NOT completely follow the school syllabus but solving the Chinese learning problems of children from fundamental factors. There are many factors to affect the level of children in Chinese comprehension and composition, such as vocabulary, grammar foundation, past experience, reading ability and habits, and thinking ability. If the children didn't build a good fundamental, they will feel very difficult to improve their Chinese level throughout the primary and secondary school career. My teaching objective is different from test-oriented education, but to focus on improving the students' Chinese foundation from the root. I think that to really improve the Chinese language ability, it is often inefficient or even ineffective to do a lot of academic exercises. (I had used this method to teach students before, but, in fact, the result depends more on their own level. Instead, it is useless, and also increases the frustration of the children, causing them to lose interest in learning this subject for those who weak in Chinese.) Therefore, I will design a teaching system to accumulate children's vocabulary, master the common grammar, develop reading interests and systematic methods, helping them to practice their ability of thinking and so on. This method is under development and is in the experimental stage, so it is not yet matured. Because of the reasons above, I may not suitable to teach the students who are Standard 6 or in Form 3, because the needs of them are focusing on the preparation of the exam. The objective of my course is to build a concrete foundation in this Language may cause them or parents become more anxious (since they have no time to learn the basic but have to deal with the final result) My teaching methods are the product of blending different educational concepts and models, including but not limited to gamification and deliberate practice. I hope to create a happy and positive systematic learning method and environment for children so that children can be more confident in Chinese learning. This is my mission.
