Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education and Teaching English as a second language
I am the best teacher for you! I am Jane and I taught English as a second language and other subjects in 6 well established International schools here in Penang at St christopher's, Dalat and International schools overseas.I studied in New Zealand where I got a Bachelor s Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Post Graduate in Teaching English as a second language. I have been teaching for the past 26 years. Working in 6 different well established International schools in 6 countries and cultures have taught me how students feel when they are trying to learn English. I also trained teachers.
The most important thing as a teacher is to understand the student and be kind. My teaching method is flexible, there are many ways to present teaching to students. Some learn hands on, visually, by listening, game based, student centered discussions and making connections just to name a few. I present lessons according to how the students learn best. I present my teaching in a fun, enjoyable way that makes the students want to learn more. I make my own resources. At the end of the course, my students speak and write closely like native english speakers do and they also do very well academically in other subjects.

Master's Degree in English Studies
I have been teaching English for 12 years. Throughout the years, I have guided and helped students from all walks of life. Today, my students include kids, teenagers, and working adults. 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. I believe in Albert Einstein's quote "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.", and therefore, I make it a point of teaching in a simple, yet effective manner.

Coming from STEM background with a high command in English, I am suited to teach my students in a way that exercises pragmatism, analytical thinking and logics. As someone who genuinely enjoys teaching, I aim to inspire my students, to inculcate the belief that learning is a lifelong process and one should accept it with an open mind and heart to truly succeed. I offer a truly unique and enriching learning experience that will definitely broaden your horizon and pave the way to greater success in the future. I look forward to meeting you and starting an interesting and exciting chapter ahead.

Bachelor degree in Business & Commerce from Tokyo
I've earned my JLPT N1 in the first year of my study in Japan, continued by a 4 years of degree in a locally renowned university Keio. I was a part time tutor teaching English to Japanese and vice versa. I design my class accordingly to suit different needs but will always be fun as I focus on active engagement and communication. Be it a skill up for your upcoming trip, preparation for your test, or just to enjoy anime without subtitles, you are most welcome :)
I would like to invite you for a free mock up, where I get to know more about your needs and level. I would be able to assist you on reading, listening, and writing, depends on whichever you would like to focus on. I may also converse fully/ partially in Japanese during the class (no worries, I did that before and there will be no problem in communication), according to your level. There will be no homework (yes, most of my students are busy working adults) but I do hope you can at least commit to a class per week, as practice and the environment are the most important keys to master a new language.
If you are planning to start your Japanese Language Journey, Ms Kwan is the best tutor regardless of your current Level. I had started from 0 with Ms Kwan and so far i felt like i have progressed in a very efficient pace. It also helps that Ms Kwan is fluent in English and Mandarin which helps alot in explanation of Japanese via translation and the use of similar terms.
She is a patient, helpful and caring teacher.
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.
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.
His teaching was awesome. He was able to explain Economic concepts and calculation in much simpler ways. It has helped me a lot in Macroeconomics. He is able to explain the concept well together with worked examples so that I can understand and do better. I really would like to thank him for teaching me.
Ooi Kean Seng is very patient and has a great teaching style. Short and clear notes are provided.
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.
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.
Very humble and down to earth person, very passionate about the teaching, easily accessible by phone or gmail.

She explains every question that you don't know and takes time to go through your work. Friendly, helpful, very easy going and she is exactly like a native speaker! Highly recommended!
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.
She is really helpful and able to conduct the class in a lively way. When I have any doubt or question, she will find lots of way to help and make sure that I understand. She is not only conducting a class, but also combining english to your daily life.

CELTA - Cambridge English
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.
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
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.
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.
