I am having 7 years tutoring experience. I am a patient and know the different ways to teach the students and also help them for the exam.
I graduated with second upper class in BSc in Business in 2010. I also completed MBA in UNITAR International University with CGPA of 3.88 in 2016 and ACCA Professional Qualification in 2020. 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 while teaching tuition part time for many years. Currently I am full time lecturer in one of the tertiary colleges in Penang. Overall I have more than 8 years of teaching tuition experience in English, Maths, Add Maths and Economics for secondary schools (SPM, IGCSE) and pre-university levels (STPM).
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.

For Secondary school students, I regularly use simple analogies to describe concepts to my students helping them to understand those concepts rather than memorizing them. I encourage a two-way interaction with my students in order to foster a critical thinking mindset. I also will converse in any language (English, Bahasa Melayu, Hokkien) that is prefered by the student to teach them effectively. As for the Diploma/Foundation/A-level students, I will often share valuable insights and best known methods from the industry to better equip students at the university level to better prepare themselves for the working world.

I have a Masters in Molecular medicine with previous professional tutoring experience for pre-university and undergraduate MBBS and Biomedical Science students for 3 years. Thus, I am well versed in tutoring up to undergraduate level education.
In my classes, I aim to equip students first with sufficient understanding of the subject matter, followed by creative activities and hand-on learning (ie: experiment, thought-provoking games) to enhance their understanding. Regular practices and curiosity via Q&A sessions will be encouraged. For students with specific checkpoints in examinations, format and ways to answer exam questions will be addressed.
Master Degree in Mathematics, Bachelor Degree in Engineering
I have more than ten years in teaching tuition. I had guided many students doing well in their exam. The techniqued used for teaching are based on the students understanding and their knowledge background.
Tutoring is done one by one or small group. Based on the students knowledge background and understanding. I use short notes, example, highlight keywords, diagram or figure, doing exercise with discussing.
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.
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.
