Master of Science (Statistics) with First Class Degree

Experience

1) I am a Master's holder in Statistics from USM in the year 2019. I started to teach home tuition since 2013 and have guided many students from various levels.  2) I am a tutor specializing in teaching Mathematics subjects only. The subjects that I covered are Mathematics, Additional Mathematics and Statistics for SPM, STPM, UEC, IGCSE, O-Level and Cambridge A-Level. I can also guide Mathematics and Statistics subjects for Diploma, Certificate, Foundation and Degree levels.  3) Below are the levels that I covered for my tuition classes:  a) For National School (SMK and SMJK), I only accept Form 4 and Form 5 students.  b) For IGCSE and O-Level, I only covered Additional Mathematics subject.  c) For UEC, I only accept Senior Levels (Senior 1, 2 and 3).  d) For STPM, both Mathematics (T) and Mathematics (M) are accepted.  e) For Cambridge A-Level, I only accept Mathematics (9709) candidates. I do not cover Paper 4 (Mechanics).  f) For Diploma, Certificate, Foundation and Degree levels, please contact me via Whatsapp to discuss with me the subject details. If I have sufficient notes to cover the subject, then I will accept. 

Tutoring Approach

1) I prefer one-to-one tutoring. 2) I am teaching using my own prepared tuition handouts.  3) I can explain to students using Malay, English or Chinese languages, but I only accept students who learn Maths in English language as I only managed to prepare my tuition notes in English Language only.  4) In my tuition notes, I prepared sufficient examples to discuss with students together with commonly asked exam question examples. I also prepared many exercises so that students have enough practice.  5) For SPM students, I also prepared sufficient exercises for KBAT/ HOTS to help students in increasing their thinking skills so that they are able to answer this kind of question in the exam.  6) For all levels of students, my tuition notes are prepared matched with the syllabus and some questions similar with past year questions were included.   7) I will often provide extra time or extra classes for my students so that they are able to learn more from my class.

MBA

Experience

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).

Tutoring Approach

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. He is able to explain the concept well together with worked examples so that I can understand and do better. I really would like to thank him for teaching me.

Education

Masters Of Informatics , Bachelor's Degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

Experience

I have been teaching SPM and IGCSE level Physics, Science and Maths for the past 6 years. My students have since graduated from school and are in the working arena, as well as pursuing their tertiary education in colleges. My years of experience working in the education and electronics industry has enabled me to conduct the following lectures with target audiences ranging from Secondary students, to students pursuing their diploma as well as to corporate clients. These subjects include Introduction to Raspberry Pi Programming, Physics for SPM, Mathematics for SPM, Physics for IGCSE, Mathemathics for IGCSE, Digital Electronics Fundamentals, Fundamentals of Arduino programming as well as C Program fundamentals.

Tutoring Approach

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.

PhD in Civil Engineering (University of Bristol)

Experience

Experience in teaching form 4 and 5, and university students. I am always focusing on the student to understand the fundamental of theory rather than just answering the questions by following the step methods. The answers are important, but the way how students answer the questions is more essential. I will teach the students to understand the fundamental of study before they can answer the question. Training drill is also one of the methods that I used to increase the understanding of students on the questions.

Tutoring Approach

I will use all the hours efficiently and give the student great time in lesson. I am easy going person, friendly, and able to adapt to any type of student. I can relate the lesson in secondary school to the real application which the student would learn in future in University. For example, how math can be used to derive some theory in engineering.

I will provide a demo class for the students, and generally know their understandings towards the particular subject. Then, I will plan for the teaching methods, and constantly update the schedule based on the progress.

My teaching method is to let students have a deeper understanding of not just the language itself but also the Hispanic culture. Feel free to message me ! :)

Tutoring Approach

Depend on the time per class, each lesson I will focus on only a specific amount of vocabulary or grammar or both (depending on the topic that day as well). Each lesson I will bring up the "curiosity time" session which is when I give students some special information regarding the topic. Usually in each class students are able to practice writing, speaking and listening skills.
