Education

Bachelor in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and pursuing Masters in Teaching and Learning

Experience

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.

Tutoring Approach

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 examples wherever 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 to understand continually. I don’t lecture to students or ask them to memorize things. Nor do I do the students’ homework for them!

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.

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.

Bachelor Engineering

Experience

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.

Education

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.

B.Sc (Hons)

Experience

I have more than 25 years of teaching experience, started teaching one to one when pursuing B.Sc (Hons) in Physics at USM in my first year.

Tutoring Approach

I expect equal participation, students must communicate and make known their problems clearly and effectively in order for me to assist them. Each student will be taught differently based on their level of understanding, concentration and perseverance as there is no one magic bullet to solve all kind of different problems. I do not provide short notes but I teach students how to use the textbook to the fullest as this is a very important skills needed for one's further education and development at the university. Also as an example, I found that in Cambridge A-level (CIE) Physics and Chemistry examination questions and mark scheme, they were very much based on or within the scope of the main textbook.
