I got my degrees from New Zealand University of Canterbury.Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education and Teaching English as a second language

Experience

I am Jane and I am the best teacher for you! I studied at University Canterbury, New Zealand where i got my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and my Post Graduate in teaching English as a Second Language. I have been teaching in well established International schools for 28 years in 6 countries and here in Penang in Dalat American International school and St. Christopher's British International School. I taught English as a second language to all ages and I also taught Kindergarten and Year 1 all subjects. In some of the International Schools, I was also the Principal for Kindergarten. Working in 6 different well established International schools in 6 countries and cultures have taught me how students feel and learn  when they are trying to learn English or other subjects. I teach according to the students' understanding of the subject and advance the student from there and according to how the student learns. I also trained teachers how to understand their students and present their teaching to individual students and as a class.

Tutoring Approach

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.

Education

Graduate Diploma Level 7 (UK) in Teaching of English.

Experience

 I have 18 years of teaching experience. My clients are mostly Working Adult learners. I am a HRDF claimable coach. I specialize in coaching for rapid results , confidence , life and business direction. 

Tutoring Approach

My specialty is in the internal dimensions of learning and speaking with an authentic, comprehensible and universally understood pronunciation. I plan my lessons based on needs analysis and benchmarking my lesson objectives around "next level " transformation points. The development of lessons is organic and continuously evolves according to the progress made by a learner.  I am very committed to making sure students remain on track and train until they reach mastery. My typical student is ambitious and has a vision for their future in advancing their qualifications abroad, working abroad in a professional job or advancing to Senior Management position. If those are your goals, let's meet to see how to get you from where you are to where you want to be.   If you have no idea what I just said, get in touch anyway. 😁 I use "corporate", jargon in formal advertising copy but what I'm really saying is, "I help you get unstuck and achieve your goals."

Master's Degree in English Studies

Experience

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.

Tutoring Approach

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.

Bachelor's Degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

Experience

I am an Electronics and Electrical Engineering degree graduate from KDU college, Penang. I am strong at mathematics and physics. Besides that, I am a state player in chess since secondary school. I represented Penang 6 times in chess. I do train a lot of kids to become good chess players. I have been a private tutor in mathematics and chess for 5 years. I am patient in guiding my students to do well in exams and competitions. I always strive to provide my best service to all my students.

Tutoring Approach

I am a mathematics tutor of 5 years experience. During my lessons, I always teach 1 chapter at a time. If my students cannot remember whatever I taught, I will repeat them in the next lesson. Besides that, I always plan my lessons properly in order to make it as interesting as possible so that my students will not feel boring in my class. I am a chess tutor of 5 years experience as well. I have guided over 50 students to do well in chess competitions that are held in Penang, Kedah, Perak and Kuala Lumpur. I have my own chess syllabus (with over 100 microsoft word documents comprising of chess notes and exercises).

Education

MBA

Experience

I graduated with second upper class in BSc in Business in 2010. I also completed MBA in UNITAR International University with CGPA of 3.88 in 2016 and ACCA Professional Qualification in 2020.   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 while teaching tuition part time for many years. Currently I am full time lecturer in one of the tertiary colleges in Penang.   Overall I have more than 8 years of teaching tuition experience in English, Maths, Add Maths and Economics for secondary schools (SPM, IGCSE) and pre-university levels (STPM).

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'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 :)

Tutoring Approach

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 very friendly and optimistic. She's fluent in both English and Chinese so she's able to explain in both languages. Lessons are not exhausting or boring as they are always fun and educational. Not just about the Japanese language, it's about the Japanese culture overall. I personally believe that she's a great tutor at keeping a lesson interesting and informative.

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.
