Miss Vivian is highly professional when it comes to teaching. Her consideration to find ways for improvement is highly appreciated as she wants what is best for me academically. Her strictness and teaching discipline is also one of the positive things that has pressured me to do better. She is supportive and flexible when it comes to time management. I could only highlight about how well prepared she is when it comes to her teaching strategies. Overall, Miss Vivian is an excellent english tutor (MUET).

Inspiring, motivating and understanding. She have the awareness about my daily life and surrounding so she could adapt it to her timetable, so she could manage it properly for both side so I could cope with her teaching. She thought thoroughly about her teaching scope. In a proficient ways to apply her education strategy to her student. That every minute of her time in educating me counts as efficient and effective for my time. She motivated me by pursuing something more than what i have aimed for. At first, i did not mind to have at least Band 2. But she beg to differ, requested for me to aim higher, at least Band 3. She was very strict about it, because she wants what is best for her student, more chances and opportunity to receive education offers from any institute. So i put my effort by aiming for Band 3. Who could ever thought i got Band 4 in the end but i did! Highly appreciate her teachings as well as her moral guidance in helping me to aim higher and widen my education purpose.

Miss vivian is a great tutor. She is very attentive to the parts that I don’t understand. She is also very easy to talk to so it makes discussing things I find difficult easier to bring up. She provided the best method for me to learn and score better for muet papers especially in writing essay and speaking parts. She is well spoken and very kind. I can’t thank her enough for all the help that she gave me, with her help I was able to achieve a band 4 in my muet exam when i was only aiming for band 3 initially. She is indeed very intelligent, thoughtful and amazing tutor.

Education

Diploma, MUET

Experience

"Intelligence cannot be defined by exams." I mainly facilitate creative writing, reading and communication skills workshops for primary-aged children and teens. Exams are becoming so competitive that parents put so much pressure on their kids to get the highest score in a test, often forgetting that real-life communication skills are just as important, if not more. My experience and role as a facilitator is to fill that gap and improve students' self-esteem and love of learning.

Tutoring Approach

Special emphasis on fundamental skills of creative writing and reading; vocal projection, articulation, tone of speech and expression. My classes also utilize non-conventional methods to inspire self-confidence, concentration and communication skills, ie. role-play, drama and reading games.

I graduated with a full scholarship from Kagawa University, scored all As in my SPM, PMR, and UPSR. I am a polyglot of 7 languages. I have tutored students ranging from UPSR to SPM, obtained N2 for JLPT before flying to Japan. I speak fluent Chinese, Malay, English, Japanese and Bahasa Indonesia. I have been tutoring Japanese students and international students for their TOEIC and semester tests, my relatives and juniors that I tutored got overwhelming results (beyond their expectations).

Tutoring Approach

I plan my lessons after identifying my students' strengths and details. I prepare materials by combining both your strengths and weaknesses. My parents are both teachers, so I know how are teachers nowadays, but I will not act as a school teacher because I am a tutor, not a school teacher. As my parents are teachers, I have great access to the tips and tricks to score better in exams. I can know details of what teachers want students to answer. I try my best to make my lessons memorable and fun at the same time. I will not only be your tutor, but I will be a friend that you never thought you will have.
