I attended a 3- hour class with Miss Dorothy 4 days before my IELTS exam. She helped me to identify my weak points and refreshed my memory on a lot of the other aspects of my essay. She also gave a lot of tips and handouts that I found very useful in my preparations for the exam.

Dorothy was extremely helpful and patient throughout the entire process. She was a miracle worker! Within at most a couple months, she was able to provide me with the necessary tools and guidance to achieve my A grade in IGCSE English 1st Language. You'd be a fool to pass on the lady who saved the Titanic!

I engaged Dorothy in 2016 to coach my daughter in IELTS as my daughter needed a minimum 7.5 for every paper in ELTS to enter the medical university of her choice in the UK. My daughter had previously obtained 8, 7.5, 7 and 6.5 before she was tutored by Dorothy. Dorothy was quick to recognize her weakness (essay paper) and gave my daughter a lot of exercises for practice, always telling her the reasons behind the mistakes besides just marking the papers. Practise makes perfect. After two lessons per week over a couple of months, my daughter achieved the min 7.5 for all papers in her IELTS.

Miss Dorothy is a very professional, patient and experienced English teacher. She is able to identify people's individual weaknesses in English and provide assistance to strengthen these weak points. She has helped me tremendously in building a strong foundation in grammar and develop different skills to write both creative pieces and professional pieces. I love how she has helped me realize the importance of grammar and punctuation as these little details have contributed greatly to the flow of a piece of writing. Besides, her ability to analyze and understand the marking criteria of various assignments has allowed me to score very well in IELTS (individual band 7) and every English writing test in college. Apart from that, I am very thankful for Miss Dorothy's patience and friendly approach as they have enabled me to learn English in a comfortable environment. She is a very loving person and I can never thank her enough for helping me achieve my dream of studying medicine. I have changed from an insecure girl who speaks broken English to a young lady who writes with good academic standard.

I sat for IELTS exam twice and only manage to obtain Band 6 instead of Band 6.5..subsequently, a priest recommended me to Dorothy and with only 4 months of coaching, the real potential in me to obtain Band 7 was delivered. She has the ability to zoom into the strength, weaknesses, opportunities and threat of a candidate and will efficiently guide them for success. If you found yourself to be lost, desperate, helpless and hopeless, then the person to look for help is obviously DOROTHY! She is the person who will walk along with you and bring the best out of you.

Education

Bachelor of Arts in Economics

Experience

Hi, I'm Victor! I provide meaningful and interesting educational experiences to students both in Malaysia and abroad in person and also over the internet, providing a hybrid e-learning service to my clients that encompasses numerous entrance exams and a large variety of subject areas. 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, a scholarship from the Malaysian government that funded my studies in Economics in the US.  As a government scholar, I have always dreamt of being able to contribute to the country by educating people around the world, and by learning with me and allowing me to help fulfill your dreams, you are helping me to fulfill my dreams! 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/SAM/AUSMAT/A-Levels), and the subjects that I teach include English 9093, Further Mathematics 9231, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Psychology, and undergraduate microeconomics/macroeconomics. I also offer assistance on the IB Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge essay, as well as Internal Assessments.    Over the past four years, it has been my fortune to work with many students from many different countries, to help people in the way I have wanted: Each of you who has engaged me has taught me new things and has led me to think differently. My students have gained 5 full scholarships and admissions to top programs in the UK (Imperial College London, UCL), and in the US (Wharton UPenn, UT Austin, UCSD, IU Bloomington), and I currently teach many other students as well. 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).  Apart from tutoring, I exercise quite frequently and enjoy composing both music and writing, playing music, and acrylic painting/sketching.

Tutoring Approach

I am intentional about creating an enjoyable and productive educational experience in which my students are motivated to succeed. Time management and keeping commitments is a big part of this process, and I expect this of my students, trying to regularly keep in touch with parents about progress. In my lessons, I help my students to develop critical thinking skills through two-way conversations that help them to use their material effectively, examine the practical implications of what they are learning in the real world, and to define and clarify the goals that they are pursuing in life to build their motivation. During my one on one classes, most of my students ask me for specific topic reviews, and students also frequently come to me with practice exams, which I solve on the spot and explain to them. My online classes are usually the same, although they are conducted over Skype and make use of resources like screen-sharing and a digital whiteboard. In both cases, 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 progress, and helps students to understand rather than memorize by rote.  Students usually request for 2-6 hours per week prior to their exams, and before sessions, we will come up with a plan of what they would like to cover or require assistance with. 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 needs first and foremost.   In both my in person and 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.  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, and also help students with tailoring their applications and consistently show their best side to admissions committees through a series of informational interviews and application review sessions. 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.

Out of all the tutors I've encountered throughout my life, Victor is one of a kind. Aside to being a great mentor, he is very knowledgeable in various fields, from Mathematics to Economics and even Psychology just from the love of reading books (he is also resourceful too). He inspires me to dream big and go through the distance, based on his motivational talks we had once in a while and always motivates me to do my best in what I do. I respect him a lot for his understanding, patience and dedication as a mentor to ensure that his students excel in their studies and that's what I admire most. He open my eyes to a lot of things in life with respect to the importance of education and knowledge that will help optimize my chances to achieve my goals. He's definitely my mentor and my life coach! Thank you Victor :)

Victor is incredibly friendly, engaging, and dedicated while he is teaching. Not only that, he is resourceful with class materials (such as providing past years and examiner reports), he is also very thorough when reviewing the work done for classes. By reviewing my work for classes and giving me the necessary tips and tricks in writing, Victor has helped me improve my writing skills.

Dr. Annithaa is the best English teacher in the world. I have tried many teachers before but nobody could helped to score the required band in IELTS except her. She is the right choice and the solution for IELTS constraints. I strongly recommend her, she is the best in terms of education as well as she is very friendly and humble.

At first I could not speak English because I did not have much vocabulary in my brain. After I met you I knew a lot of English that I never knew like words that were high level English etc. I studied with you to prepare for IELTS and I just got results for my IELTS and maybe it hasn't been a fortune because I failed my test but it wasn't because of who taught me but it was because of my ability that only got there. I do not blame anyone for this problem , I only blame myself because I did not try enough on this issue. I am very lucky to meet you teacher, you are like my mother, taking care of me very kindly and patiently. good luck to your life teacher.

Additionally, I am confident in my English language skills, as I recently attempted the IELTS Academic (UKVI) test with only 2 days of preparation and I received a score of 8.5/9 on my first attempt.

Tutoring Approach

I look forward to teaching and help students to the best of my ability. My approach is flexible, I would try to teach the student at their pace and adapt my teaching style to what helps the student learn best.

Degree in Accountancy

Experience

I am a Bachelor holder in Accountancy. I have 1 year of teaching experience. The subjects that I mainly teach are Mathematics for standard 4 & standard 5. I did learn on my own how to create a website and one of my project is http://lolmillionaire.com/.

Tutoring Approach

I will use my own material to teach the kids. It depends on their level of how they can understand the topic. I had handling the lowest grade student and the highest grade student in one class. For the student that have less understanding, they need lots of attention and 1 to 1 teaching. Therefore, my own material can help them understand more easily. For computer, I will using the computer directly and teach how to create simple task by using HTML and also create simple website. This will help them feel more excited and confident instead learning theory and unable to understand the topic.

Experience

I have experience in tutoring standard 1 kids for English, Mathematics, Bahasa Malaysia, and Chinese/ Mandarin subjects. Besides, I also provide Chinese/ Mandarin language tutoring to adult learner.

Tutoring Approach

For adult language learner, the tutoring approach can be tailor suit to each different student's need. As adult learner normally would like to pick up a new language due to interest reason or working needs. For standard 1 -3 students, my focus will be more on building learning skills. Starting from homework guidance, revision on learnings covered in school and extra materials based on the school syllabus. This is to build solid fundamental of the subjects espcially language subjects and mathematics. Strong fundamental will help students learn and absord better as the syllabus getting more challenging.   While for standard 4 - 6 students, focus will be more on covering all syllabus in school and more exam-oriented. This is especially for standard 6 students who are preparing for UPSR.

Bachelor of Mathematical Science Honor

Experience

I started tutoring in 2007. I am experienced in tutoring Mathematics for primary, secondary and test prep either in national syllabus or UK and US syllabus. I have taught IGCSE, IB, algebra, pre-algebra, statistics, geometry and SAT, SAT 2 Math. I am currently pursuing Master of Science majoring in Mathematics. Prior to that, I graduated with Rector's Award and First class Honour in Bachelor of Mathematical Science. Thus, you can be sure that I am well-versed in extended mathematics content.

Tutoring Approach

My first class usually will be probing session. In this session, I will probe the student's personal preferences approach. I will also probe contents and skills that are required more attention. Most of my tutoring sessions are 2 hours per session. Usually, I will start my lesson with 2 minutes of mindfulness activities to ensure student's brain ready for the lesson. Then, I will continue with the content part for about 55 minutes. We will have a 5 minutes break to ensure optimize attention from the student. After the break, we will continue with lesson part 2 and end the lesson with an exit ticket where I will probe student's engagement. My approach is different because I apply gradual release method. This method is proven scientifically in engaging students attention and also to create a positive and safe learning environment. I also use declarative language in spotlighting student's achievements. This approach is proven to be more effective as compared to saying general praise. I also adapt EF skills in academic lessons to enhance student's independence.

Experience

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.

Tutoring Approach

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!

Master's Degree

Experience

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.

Tutoring Approach

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. 

Education

Bachelor Degree

Experience

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.

Tutoring Approach

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

For Primary, Secondary Level, I mainly focus on past year papers and guiding my student with their homework and assignments, in order for them to achieve better understanding in the respective subjects. 2) For adult students, I would assess the student’s reason and aim for learning and then I will design learning plans based on the student’s standard and learning style. I will be focusing mainly on speaking and making conversation (English/Mandarin) as it is the best way to improve his/her speaking ability and in time, be able to express him/herself more and more easily.

Tutoring Approach

English is the blood that infuses into every subject of life. To teach effectively in English, a teacher should have the knowledge, the interest and the allure into as many subjects as possible. It is not the language that attracts the students; it is the stories, the illustrations, the humour, the cynicism or the irony the teacher conveys in the subject at hand that captures the student’s heart. The student is attracted to the subject and the language slips into his blood unnoticeably.

PhD

Experience

I have been Tutoring A-level students in Physics and Maths for over 3 years. Almost all my tutees have improvements in their grades. I also worked as demonstrator at the Sheffield 2nd Year laboratories. I trained students to use experimental equipment and programming languages. Throughout my PhD, I worked as a lab and tutorial demonstrator, teaching research skills and imparting knowledge to undergraduate Physics students.

Tutoring Approach

I believe that the approach you take with a tutee must be flexible. Everybody needs to be approached in a slightly different way in order to maximize their ability to approach a problem on their own when the exam comes around. I would always be willing to give a general overview of the part of the syllabus that the tutee is struggling with, but at the end of the day the tutee and I must work to recognise where they feel their weakest areas are, and change that into something they feel confident about. The strongest learning tool available to the tutee and I will always be past paper / textbook problems, but I prefer not to encourage a tutee to simply memorize a solution. I will try my hardest to teach the tutee the answers to the question, but I also intend to teach them where the answer comes from, without overwhelming them. I will start a session with a recap and ask the student if there are any areas they would like to focus on based on their own insight. Every tutorial I run will then contain an overview of the equations and facts the student will need to face that topic. Over time I will expect the student to be able to recall or recite the techniques they will need to face each topic at the start of the session. The rest of the session is an exercise in confidence building - taking the tutee through questions, asking them to identify the problem, and the techniques required to solve the problem, and then taking them through the solution step-by-step.
