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.

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.

Mdm Dorothy is the first tutor to ever succeed in helping me achieve band 7 in both writing and speaking. She did not hesitate to criticize me when I made mistake but she was also generous with her praise and this motivated me to work harder as well as to avoid making the same mistake. With regards to writing lessons, Mdm Dorothy did not just correct my grammatical and tenses errors, she also constructed a better sentence by using her own ideas and this helped me to further improve my writing skills. She was also willing to provide her modal answers as references. With regards to speaking lessons, she started with the basics like pronunciation and enunciation. At first I was sceptical with this approach but then it all made sense. As the conversation during the speaking test is recorded, this particular lesson taught me to emphasize the 'ed' and enabled the examiner to differentiate between the past tense and the present tense.

Education

Masters in Music Performance, Bachelor of Classical Music (Hons), Licentiate (LTCL) Performance Diploma, Associate (ATCL) Performance Diploma

Experience

Completed her MMus in Music Performance at Miami University in the United States with full graduate assistantship. Six years of extensive teaching experience in individual and group settings. Prepared students from beginner to advance levels, from the age of 4 and above for exams, competitions, performances and leisure playing. As a return of her hard work and dedication, many of her students enjoyed learning piano and achieved high merits and distinctions in the ABRSM graded exams.

Tutoring Approach

Music enjoyment that lasts a lifetime through piano lessons is my utmost goal. I believe that providing a fun, positive and encouraging environment will benefit students to learn and be better musicians. Teaching students to be thoughtful musicians will also help in their sensitive piano playing. Hence, being able to share is part of the important values in my studio. All lessons will be tailored accordingly to each student. I vary my pedagogical methods depending on the ability and needs of my students to ensure optimal learning in my classes. You will learn how to play the piano in addition with the knowledge of music theory, music history, music aural and musicianship that is relevant to help in your piano playing. Tools (prepared by me) may be used to assist in learning. To achieve effective learning, it is essential to maintain regular contact in regards to students’ progress. Any meetings with parents/guardians of the students regarding the child progress are welcome!* A practice log (detailed feedback and practice suggestions) will also be provided after every lesson to help you in effective practice during the week before the next lesson. *Due to Covid-19 pandemic, all lessons are now conducted remotely for the safety of both parties. Parents/guardians may set a schedule to meet Ms. Lee remotely if needed.

National badminton player, SPM, student of BYU Pathway

Experience

I am a national badminton player. When I am off the court, I draw a lot and I used to teach drawing online. Currently, I am studying Community Health and implementing meanwhile I do online tutor as part time job.

Tutoring Approach

My teaching method is kinesthetic learning and game based learning. I would love to see student to do, make, or create. In a kinesthetic learning environment, student perform physical activities rather than listen to lectures or watch demonstrations. Also, I will engage students to be an active learner by using several of games.

Tutoring Approach

First, evaluation of how far the level of understanding for all basic concept. Then, evaluation of their personality to discover the suitable technique for the better lesson. Once discover the current level of understanding, any problem in basic concept will be settled first. As human's brain is very weak to memorize alphabet and numbers but very amazing in remembering the story, all explanation will be presented by analogy and interesting explanation. Once all basic concept is settled, continuous exercise will strengthen their understanding.
