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.
I had record of making student improve in Bahasa and avoiding go to Peralihan..My teaching is easy to understand and improvement to student
Certified Accouting Technician (CAT) and Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA)
I have been teaching tuition for 6 years.
I am able to create a learning environment that gives a great chance for students to build up to their fullest potential and attain their learning objectives.Test and quiz assigned from time to time to monintor the progress of the students.
Bachelor of Education
I have more than ten years teaching experience. I am a responsible and patience teacher. I always motivate and help my student prepare exam. My students enjoy my lessons.
When exam is around d the corner, I will give my students do school past year exam questions. I guide my students do school homework and teach them extra reference books
Bachelor of Science
I provide home tutoring for academic subjects such as primary level & secondary level since 2005. I have been teaching Maths, Add Maths for both national & international students(IGCSE). Previously, I also provided lessons in Piano, Chinese, English, Science subjects but I have eventually moved to focus mainly in Maths, Add Maths and Piano lessons. I have taught more than 50 students, mostly 1-1 and small group class of not more than 5 students in class. To me, quality comes before quantity.
My greatest achievement in tutoring over the years has been turning under performing students in certain subjects into great improvement of grades. One great example was a primary 4 student that went from F to A within a semester. More importantly is to make the students falling in love with these subjects. Once they love the subjects, everything else will be in place. I have great relationships with both the parents & the students. Overall, I love what I do. I think that matters the most.
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.

Bachelors Degree in Accounting
I worked in tuition centres for 2 years. And now I'm a full time home tutor.
The lessons designed according to student's standards. I will use creative teaching methods to aid in comprehension and I am attentive to student's Psychological needs.
Ms Jophy was a very nice tutor. She took the time to evaluate the needed for my upcoming exam. I have started Accounting from a very basic understanding. Ms Jophy quickly adapts the level to meet me, while at the same time demands my full focus and intensity to learn as much as possible during the lessons. Fantastic so far. Would recommend to anyone.
Before having tuition, I had no interest at all in Accounting. Through my school's friend, I got to know Ms Jophy. I requested for a free trial class from her. And within 1 month, I started to understand Debit and Credit and some theories through mnemonics that she taught me. I love the tuition class and enjoyed the lesson. I got an A in the first exam I had taken after tuition and this boosted my interest in accounting even more! After three months, I decided to have tuition with Ms Jophy in Mathematics and Additional Mathematics. She prepared her own colored notes for me.
She is really helpful, experienced and understanding teacher. My girl and friends improved with her coaching. She is highly recommended as a tutor as her understanding on student's limitation and help them to overcome is really great. Appreciate on her effort.
She is a very patient teacher.

Bachelor Honours Degree (Biotechnology, 2011-2014) - UTAR; PhD Degree (Medical Entomology, 2015-present) - UNIMAS
I realised from my previous tutoring experiences that I am a tutor who rather emphasizes on understanding a particular concept than memorising it. Biology, contrary to popular belief among Malaysian, I believe is a subject which needs to be understood instead of memorised. It is my pleasure to aid students in grasping the main principles of the subjects I teach.
Messages will be conveyed through mind maps and diagrams during Biology lessons. Each chapter will always start with an overview so that students might grasp the 'floorplan' of that chapter. When I go into the details, students will be guided to relate different parts of mind maps/diagram given during the class. Analogies on the other hand will be used to aid in understanding Mathematic. Once the students understand the concept, they will be guided to solve various Mathematical problems. For Mathematics, I believe in the saying 'Practice Makes Perfect'. All in all, my lessons are not only fun- and understanding-oriented. I like to trigger the student's mind to think critically so that they could answer questions asked in different ways during exams.
Joshua Ang Xin De is a very friendly person. He is also very organized and a well-planned person.
The teaching approach followed by Joshua Ang Xin De enables me to understand the subjects more easily.
As to what he said in his introduction, he really emphasizes on understanding instead of memorising. I feel that it indeed is a better way to study a subject instead of always memorising it. I like how he is always very patient when his students don't understand a particular topic and how he doesn't mind repeating the same thing twice, or sometimes more than that.
Masters in English language Studies (USM)
I have been teaching English for 10 years and have experience in all skills; reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar for all levels as well as prep classes for MUET, IELTS, and TOEFL. I've guided many local and international students with their test preps especially IELTS. I was lecturing (English) at TAR University College Penang and prior to that, at ELS Language Centre.

Communicative approach, student centered, tutor as a guide/motivator.
Teacher Rev is a great and professional tutor. She is fabulously well prepared and organized for each lesson. She is patient. 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.
Teacher Revathy is really a good teacher ! She will not refuse to answer any question about English and she always try her best to help . She really helps me a lot in my English education even though now I'm now study in University. During the tuition, don't be shy to mention your weakness to teacher because teacher will helps you improve in that part. I'm so lucky that I'm being her student.
I've attended her tuition for 3 months and I realized that within those 3 months, my English improved really well. She is a really patient teacher and is always willing to help students in need. A really kind and helpful teachere indeed. I would highly recommend Ms Revathy for students who are doing poorly in English, like me previously.
I've been in the tuition for three months and within those three months my English really improved a lot .She was a really kind and patient teachers who's willing to teach any students in need. Highly recommended !

Based on student's need and learning progress
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.

Bachelor Degree, Journalism & Broadcasting
2010~2013: full-time tuition teacher in tuition center, Standard 1~6, all subjects exclude Pemahaman and English 2013~2014: full-time home tuition teacher, Standard 1~6, all subjects; PMR BM, English and Mathematics 2014~2018: further study at Hsuan Chuang University in Taiwan (Major: Bachelor Degree in Journalism & Broadcasting; minor: Chinese Language and Literature) 2019: Mandarin teacher in E-Bridge Preschool (resigned) * continuously written novels, prose, articles in Mandarin
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.
