Education

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.

Experience

I believe in learning smart, not necessarily learning hard. I help students to remember the more difficult grammar rules. I focus mainly on passing exams, and sometimes obtaining a higher score for university entrants. As an IELTS exam trainer, I can normally tell you what your score will be based on your starting level and how many hours you'll need to get a specific score.

Tutoring Approach

I develop a programme for each student depending on their ultimate goal. A programme can be 12 weeks (writing only) or it can last 2 years. In this case, it will normally include all aspects of learning a language, speaking, reading, listening and writing.

TEFL (Distinction)

Experience

Three years ago I trained in the UK with a TEFL, which means I am qualified to teach English as a second language to all ages and abilities. I passed with a distinction grade and produced creative materials to aid students in learning. I have since gained experience teaching classes and individuals of mixed backgrounds, from private to public schools, adult beginners, English for business purposes and tutoring students of all ages to pass exams.

Tutoring Approach

My tutoring style is relaxed and friendly, and I love to inspire my students so they feel excited to learn more! Before our first lesson, I want to understand your targets for learning English and your own learning preferences. I can provide you with useful activities you can practice with between lessons. If you are learning English for Academic purposes, such as to pass an IELTS exam, we will simulate test scenarios to get you practised and confident for the big day! I can help you with any goal you are working towards, from learning enough about the English culture to holding a conversation, to getting ready for a professional meeting. I tutor online with Skype, which is an amazing way to use modern technology to learn a language. You can bring one to one Native English tutorage to the privacy and comfort of your home, at a time convenient to you. I have a keen interest in learning new things myself and enjoy learning about the culture and other countries. I am positive that the best way to learn is naturally, in a relaxed setting open for questions. This is how I like our classes to be. I will gently help you find the best way to express yourself and in turn, build your confidence. In the right environment, you can grow and expand - the sky is the limit!
