Malaysian Public Service Depar...
Malaysian Public Service Department (JPA) Scholar, 4 years teaching experience, University of Chicago Bachelor of Arts in Economics. 9A/9A's SPM, 2360/2400 SAT I (800 CR, 790 Math, 770 Writing), 2400/2400 SAT II (800 Math II, 800 Chemistry, 800 Physics),
My name is Victor Tan. I am a graduate of The University of Chicago's Economics program as well as a beneficiary of the now discontinued JPA Ivy League dan Setara Scholarship, which gave me a full scholarship to study at the top Economics program in the United States. Before I came to college, I scored 41/45 points on the IB Diploma, 9A/9A's on the SPM, 8.5/9.0 for the IELTS, a 1590/1600 Reading/Mathematics score for the SAT, and perfect scores on the SAT II for Mathematics II (800/800), Chemistry (800/800), and Physics (800/800). I have worked with students on English examinations for migration such as the IELTS(Academic and General), PTE, and TOEFL, admissions exams (SAT/Cambridge and Oxford Admissions Exams), and 12th form/Pre-University examinations (IB/STPM/A-Levels). Over the past four years, it has been my fortune to work with many motivated students across Malaysia, the UK, Thailand, the USA, China, and India: The privilege of my experience has not simply been to teach, but also to learn from many diverse people and cultures across the world. Some of these students have also benefited greatly from educational consulting and have gone on to do very well, having collectively gained 5 full scholarships and admissions to top programs in the UK (Imperial College London, UCL), and in the US (Wharton UPenn, UT Austin). I am currently available to teach both online classes (any geography) and in-person within the Klang Valley, with a preference for classes conducted near the Jaya One area in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. In addition to tutoring, I also offer admissions consulting to students who are interested in attending top programs in the United States and United Kingdom (Oxford/Cambridge). P.S. At the moment, I am also trying to understand the private tutoring industry a little more, so if you have the time, please fill out the following surveys! If you are a student, please fill out the Student Survey(https://goo.gl/forms/PgQYAlJiUBI1Tesl1), and if you are a parent, please instead fill out the Parent Survey (https://goo.gl/forms/w5HzfbGqr5vuSeG12).
My ground rule with students (and parents) is, I am intentional about time management and keeping commitments, and expect this of my students. I am data-driven, and am focused on understanding performance, and providing feedback to both students and their parents. In my weekly lessons, I frequently work through material in topic-by-topic reviews, and also work through practice exams with my students. Typically, my engagements with students range from 2-6 hours per week across long-term preparation courses, and intensive exam preparation (Such as for IGCSE's, A Levels, IB, and University level courses). Having said that, my experience with different exam varieties and student learning styles is extensive, and my tutoring approach tailors to each student accordingly depending on the student's need during a particular period of time. My approach consists of a mutually agreed schedule that is worked out between me and the student that is designed for efficiency, allows us to assess our work and our standing, and is directed toward solving problems together and ensuring that we work on understanding rather than rote memorization. During class, students often use the time for topic reviews, to work through specific exams with me on a timed basis, as well as ask me questions that they do not know how to solve, and outside of class, I give homework assignments In my online classes, I use a combination of Google Drive, Skype, and Zoom in order to populate materials to my students as well as solve problems live, whereas in person, my focus is more on problem-solving. In my IELTS classes, previous approaches have included defining a syllabus, and establishing writing tasks to be completed by the student prior to a short call for feedback, during which I provide feedback on the student's written work and provide directions for further improvement. I have also offered both topic-by-topic reviews with diagnostic questions for each topics based on exam board specifications, explaining each individual concept and providing exercises for my students to complete. For scholarship interview and admissions preparation, I arrange mock interviews for my students during which I quiz them both on technical and behavioral interview questions. Ultimately, my philosophy is that everyone learns differently, and you cannot force a donkey to climb a tree. It is my directive as a professional to understand each student and to develop plans in accordance with need. If you engage my services, you will secure my commitment to provide you or your child a custom-made and well-tailored educational experience from start to finish.

BSc Actuarial Science (Hons)
Being an actuarial graduate from the UK, over the years, I have mastered the Malaysian system of education. My expertise is exam techniques, scoring strategy, spotting questions and easy learning methods including KBAT/HOTS application. I also coach students to prepare for their abroad university entrance including SAT/TOFEL/IELTS and detailed consultation on degree/career choices. I strongly believe that learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with passion and attended to with diligence. Hence, my diverse experience and unique teaching method will definitely help students not only to obtain excellent results but also build character and prepare for the future challenges.
Before we start, there will be an honest conversation session with the parents to understand their expectations. Usually, the first session which is a trial session, will be used to gauge what standard the student is at and direct feedback will be given to the parents. Based upon the grasping ability of the students, learning methods will be taught. The best materials like workbooks and notes will be recommended. Lots of practices will be given and the session is fully utilized, for e.g. student learn more in one class compared to tuition centers. Pick up the phone and call me. If you like what you hear, we can take it from there. If you want great results for greater future - call me now!

I have successfully completed my Master's degree in Germany and I have been living in Germany since 2009. Recently, I have just moved back to our beautiful home-country, Malaysia, to set up a language centre so that Malaysians would consider the option to study in Germany for free. Do help me realize my dreams of bringing more students to study abroad. I will once again glorify Malaysia for the right reasons.
My teaching is based on the frequency and on the location of the classes. Most of the students sign up for 1.5 hours German lessons, on a weekly basis. My techniques are pretty straight-forward and easy to understand. Suitable for slow-learners and also to those that don't have extra time to travel across KL or PJ. You can choose to learn German online. Start off with German expressions and improve your vocabulary with my online classes, using Skype and Google Documents. Detailed notes and homework will be provided.

I am a first-class graduate in EE Engineering. I do not have any teaching formally, but during A levels and University Level education, I have taught a lot of my classmates, and helped them in their engineering subjects and especially in Mathematics. My approach is to give the students a fun learning experience, whereby they feel the application and importance of the subject in real life, and that is when not only you can absolutely get an A for your exam, but also you would remember the concept for a longer time.
The plan always depends on the student's potential. Beside the fact that first class is a demo for the student to see the tutoring capabilities, but also it is a chance for the tutor to assess the student's capabilities on the subject. So, I would assess the student in the first class, and based on the result of that assessment and the goal and time frame that the student have, I will plan the classes, so that they can get what they wants in the desired time period. The approach that I use made me a first-class graduate. In simple words- Figure out where we are - Assess the student, Determine where we want to go - Set the goal and time frame and Plan how to get there - Plan the coming classes
