Timothy

Male, 28 Yrs Pro

6 Years of Teaching Experience

(27 Reviews)

Education

Cambridge CELTA; Bachelor of Laws (Hons)

Experience

I’m a native English speaker and full-time tutor specialising in English. In the past 6–7 years, I’ve helped many students prepare for the IGCSE, Checkpoint and IELTS exams by helping them learn the techniques required for success. Given enough time and effort, struggling students have seen their grades improve from an 'E' to 'high C' or 'B', while students who were previous achieving 'high C' or 'B' have been able to secure an 'A' for their final exam. In addition, I’ve helped many students achieve the elusive Band 7 in IELTS Writing and Speaking. Meanwhile, I’ve worked with many adults (including PhD candidates, university students, and both local and expatriate working professionals) to help them develop their speaking and writing skills, especially in areas of pronunciation, fluency, grammar, email and report writing, and presentation skills. Usually, students see improvements after 2 months of regular lessons and consistent practice. Since graduating from Bristol Law School, I’ve completed the Cambridge CELTA course, allowing me to offer keen language guidance to speakers of other languages. I’m further certified by the University of London, UCL and Dyslexia International to assist young learners with difficulties in reading and writing.

Tutoring Approach

To start with, students complete an assessment to identify their level, needs and areas for improvement. A personalised study plan is then provided, enabling students to achieve their goals within a given period of time. For language learners: I mainly focus on four key areas – grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and fluency. However, lessons are fully adaptable to each student's needs and preferences, and problematic aspects are usually given higher priority. Discussions, role plays and games are common in my lessons, as I believe in teaching English in a way that is fun, practical, and relevant to a person’s everyday life. This allows for greater opportunities to practise newly-learnt language while gradually building confidence in the language. For exam takers: I work closely with the scoring requirements to give them a good idea of what is expected of them during the exam. Once students understand the criteria, we practise applying that knowledge in a series of practice questions and past papers. Problematic areas are given more attention, while a systematic approach is used to reduce mistakes and improve quality over time. I find that one of the reasons why many students fail to succeed is because they are unsure of what is expected of them in a given exam. My approach guides them in this area.

Firstly, What I like about Timothy Au, he is ready to take responsibility to teach me in short period. Next, I like the way he makes me feel confident when i speak with him although my English is moderate level. Lastly, the slide that given really help me in writing and reading section in MUET exam. The homework and tips really work on me to improve my writing, reading and speaking task for MUET. I highly recommend he as teacher👍

Timothy has been helping me with my writing and conversational English for the past few months. During our first meeting, he was able to pinpoint areas I needed to work on. I like that he customizes his lessons based on my strengths and weaknesses. He is creative in his approach to teaching, so our lessons are never boring. He has also been diligent in following up with me and sharing additional material after our lessons, which I really appreciate. Thank you, Timothy, you have been a great help.

Timothy is very passionate and hardworking teacher. What I like most about Timothy is that he's willing to not only explain easily; when he point out my errors, he can also quickly identify what my weakness is and always note it to prepare for next class. It helped a lot to make up for my weak point. Other than that,Timothy can also adapt to teach any kind of students just as he is teaching my mom,me and my sister as well! Even though we all have different levels and goals. He's been helping us to improve in many ways!9

I liked Tim's humble and friendly approach in dealing with students. Although my English was at a good level, Tim helped me improve and corrected some mistakes. His knowledge of the English language was quite impressive and he speaks with very little accent, which I think will help ESL students. He helped me prepare for the IGCSE English as a Second Language test and I managed to get an A.

He is a fantastic guy with great teaching skills. I had only few days for my exam but he did insist me on the skills to improve my scores in the PTE examination. Moreover, he was also very friendly guy who you can share all your ideas to make you feel more comfortable. I would highly recommend him.

For the past six months I have been taking O-Level classes from Mr Timothy. He is responsible and makes an effort to organize his classes well by preparing worksheets, slides, past year papers, etc. I have learnt a lot from him, like how to be organized. I have gained a lot of knowledge on exam preparations from him. He also makes the surrounding comfortable and conducive while he is teaching and he gives you a lot of confidence.

Timothy worked with my daughter for 6 months to prepare for IGCSE English as a First Language. I liked the way he motivated her to aim for the best in the exams. The tips and guidance he provided were also very helpful, and I believe he contributed to her wellbeing & her success in achieving an A for her final English exam. I'm happy that you are part of her achievement. Thank you so much!

Mr. Timothy is a teacher who is very focused and dedicated in his teaching. He will try his best to help you pass your exam, and he will give you all the material you need for practice. He usually corrects my speech when I am wrong, and I can ask him about any words that I'm not sure about. I enjoy his classes because they are fun, and sometimes we will make some jokes. Mr. Timothy is a really good teacher. I highly recommend him to others!

Tim helped me to prepared my writing and speaking for the IELTS test. We spent most of the time on writing and I improved a lot with time management. I was worried about not being able to finish the writing test in time but it turns out that I still have time for checking grammar at the end. We practiced speaking test at Tims place as its quieter and more similar to actual test scenario. We only practiced twice because the writing part was more important for me, but the practice helped me to be less nervous when it came to the real test. Overall, I think the lesson with Tim was very helpful for my IELTS preparation, especially for the writing.

Timothy has assisted me a great deal in preparing for my IELTS writing examinations. Hes an excellent teacher and know how to pick up on my strengths and weaknesses in a short period of time. He is well versed with the IELTS marking system & could point out my errors in order to achieve the required band score. Not only that, with my busy schedule I find that hes flexible If I need to plan a couple of last minute classes to achieve certain aims of the exam. I strongly recommend him for anyone planning to sit for an English exam!

I have been under Tim's tutelage for a few months and I must say it's been quite an experience. Tim's way of approaching learning is by treating his client as he would his friends and also through systematic methods that are fun and easy to understand. I would recommend him for a quality English tutor.

Samer

Tim has helped me to progress from band 6 to band 7 in IELTS writing in less than 5 weeks. Before we started lessons, I had taken IELTS 3 times. First, he examined my writing and identified the issues that I need to remedy. Then he customized a specific plan for me and followed up with weekly action items. Tim also advised me on how to allocate time to practice different areas of writing such as structuring, improving paragraph development, fixing repetitive spelling mistakes, etc. I am very happy that I found Tim and I highly recommend him as a tutor.

Wilson

I am an university student and I have had the pleasure working with him for past couple of months. His teaching method has greatly developed my fundamentals in English especially grammar. If I am to say one thing I like about his teaching method, it would have to be how he always pinpoints my mistakes after each lesson.

Nazhan

I went for an IELTS crash course with Mr Tim just a week before my actual IELTS exam. Mr Tim is very well versed in all there is to know about IELTS and he explained to me from scratch how to go about each component. He emphasises on the IELTS examiners marking technique and this gave me a solid studying foundation before taking the exams. Tim is super generous with his notes, he provides whatever notes and revision books you require without any additional payment. I managed to achieve Band 7.5 overall, and because of that I strongly recommend his services.

Helped me a lot to improve my IELTS writing, from a 6.5 to a 7.0 band within just 1 week. A lot of resources were provided and explained all the important details on both the writing tasks as well as speaking task.

Giam Zeng Keat
10/06/19

The lessons were clear and the contents and teaching are effective as well. Tim know the IELTS marking process well, so i got clear instructions of what to improve and how to score. Other than that, the lessons were completely taught in an English-speaking enviroment which help me gain confidence when speaking English since I dont speak english regularly. The writing part is the most difficult to me, however, with significant help from the lessons and endless training, I am able to write a proper essay in 40 min, which to be honest, was very difficult to me in the beginning. All in all, after i had experience about 7 lessons and taking IELTS exam, I think the lessons were essential to me and in fact, I may not score 6.5 without the help of these lessons. Therefore, big appreciation to Tim!

Tabina

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.

(https://eddylearn.teachable.com/?redirect=admin) I have served as Private Tutor and Personal Development Coach to over 307 private students in the past 16 years, with remarkable results. I have authored GCE A Level, BMAT, ACT, IB, and SAT Exam Preparation guides, used exclusively by Eddylearn students. I have also specialised in Home Schooling, where I plan and administer 6-month or 9-month intensive study schedules to prepare private candidates for the entire AS/A Level or IB Diploma curricula; SAT; GMAT; GRE; BMAT; UKCAT and MCAT.

Tutoring Approach

(https://eddylearn.teachable.com/?redirect=admin) I present the subject content of the respective syllabus in an "easy to grasp" manner, so down to earth, for any grade of student to understand. I then work with the student to understand how Examiners think, and to sharpen the student's Exam Taking Skills. This makes the students present answers of Excellent Quality in their Exams. I also Supplement Face-to-Face Tuition with Skype Lessons to ensure a Deeper-Rootedness of Understanding. I have observed that my style of tuition makes the Student develop a Special Liking for the Subject (which may have been absent initially), and also Motivates the Student to use his or her initiative to Work without Supervision. I definitely make Champions out of Students!

Experience

Since 2017 I have tutored beginners starting from zero to learn German for the Goethe A1, A2 and B1 exams. I am familiar with the exam format, expectations and preparation methods. Since 2012 I have taught English to Malaysian secondary school and college students as well as adult foreigners from China, Taiwan, Vietnam, and several other Asian countries. I have completed the CELTA course at the British Council Malaysia where I learnt the latest communication-based teaching techniques for better English learning. Seit 2017 unterrichte ich Deutsch für Anfänger, um sie vorzubereiten, die A1-, A2- und B1-Prüfungen des Goethe-Instituts abzulegen. Ich kenne mich gut mit dem Prüfungsformat, den Erwartungen und den Vorbereitungsmethoden aus. 2012 habe ich angefangen, Englisch zu unterrichten. Die Lerner sind malaysische Schüler und Studenten sowie erwachsene Ausländer aus China, Taiwan, Vietnam und einigen anderen asiatischen Ländern. Ich habe den CELTA-Kurs beim British Council Malaysia absolviert, in dem ich die zeitgemäßen kommunikationsbasierten Lehrmethoden für ein besseres Englischlernen gelernt habe.

Tutoring Approach

From my experience as a tutor and language learner, I understand the problems and difficulties in learning German or English. I can explain things to you in your language. We will make a plan to achieve your goals based on your needs. Whether you need it for an exam, practical everyday use, social communication, or business, let's work together to improve your language skills and confidence. Aus meiner Erfahrung als Tutor und Sprachlerner verstehe ich genau die Probleme und Schwierigkeiten beim Erwerben der Sprachvermögen während des Erlernens von Deutsch und Englisch. Ich kann Ihnen die Begriffe und Konzepte in Ihrer Sprache erklären. Nach Ihren Bedürfnissen stellen wir zusammen einen Plan, damit Sie Ihre Ziele erreichen. Ob Sie die Sprachfertigkeiten für eine Prüfung, das tägliche Gespräch, die soziale Kommunikation oder den Beruf benötigen, arbeiten wir zusammen, um die Sprachkenntnisse zu erlangen und Ihr Selbstvertrauen zu stärken.

Patient, kind and generous! Mr. U Joe guided me step by step from zero to A1 – he’d always explain in detail, making sure you would understand. He is familiar with the Goethe Institute syllabus and will prep you more than enough for each section of the exam. His materials are always fun and engaging yet challenging. Mr. U Joe never got impatient with me if I ever forgot a word or something that has been taught previously. He is always there for me along the way, answering any questions of mine. Most of all, he cracks good dad jokes!

Experience

Having a background in medical research, I have learned to apply a methodological approach to teaching. My career in education has provided me with the experience in preparing students for include IGCSE, AS and A-Level (CIE and EDEXCEL), SAT, IB (Diploma, MYP and PYP), STPM, SPM and PT3 Level. Throughout the years, I have honed skills such as problem solving and critical thinking. Some of my best attributes are a key attention for details, perseverance and the ability to connect with people on their level.

Tutoring Approach

My approach to teaching varies according to the needs of the student(s). When teaching technical subjects like biology or physics, I apply an approach that encourages critical thinking and real world examples that enhances interest in these subjects and promotes understanding of concepts and principles. When teaching languages or exam preparation, my method of teaching involves engaging the student(s) in discussion using examples where ideas are compared before allowing the student(s) to come up with suitable answers.

Shen is a great teacher, his approach and methods are spot on. I took a few lessons with him and I was able to obtain the score I needed for PTE. To my surprise, I even scored 81 for speaking which many struggles to do. I strongly recommend Shen to anyone who needs to improve their PTE score as his methods work. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
