20 Years of Teaching Experience

(9 Reviews)

Education

TCSOL; CELTA; B.Sc.(Hons.) with Petroleum Chemistry

Experience

With an early working background as a trilingual translator, 011-62216066 I was constantly gravitated by the calling of teaching and eventually, by random chances, I was called to teach in formal schools,language academies and tutorial centres. Since then I have been enthusiastically serving a total of 20 years in teaching English,Malay, Chinese covering both international(British, American, Singapore) and national syllabuses, business, drama, literature and customized. The spectrum of my students ranges from multinational private leaners,school students to corporate employees.  

Tutoring Approach

The challenge in tutoring is not about `what-is' but `how-to'. As every learner is different, creativity is undeniably essential to enlighten a frustrated student in a fun, refreshing way of learning instead of hardship. This is my primary aspiration. Hence, teaching is an art, rather than a science. As an astute educator, I empathize, motivate, inspire in  guiding, coaching and training learners to overcome their learning  difficulties. Not limiting to this, I'm always passionately prepared to devise different approaches in handling motivation, discipline and  behaviorial issues. To say the least, I have well-recognized track records  in dealing with various kinds of leanering issues.  Education is a job of giving. You can't give what you don't have. As a person who is eagerly  inquisitive and caring, I passionately enjoy giving and sharing  knowledge and life experience in my job.  Should you have any interest for a better pictures of my teaching, you are cordially invited to visit my facebook (Due to privacy setting, you can add-friend to understand more).As I seldom check my inbox overhere, preferred contact method: WhatsApp/SMS your location, short/long term prior to appointment on phone. Thank you. Happy learning!

Tiffany B. Zhang

We have been 30 months with Sofia now, recommended by our neighbour. My kids are both in junior and high school. Started with one subject, then we added other subjects under my kid's request just because my kid would like to her stay longer. She is getting more and more looking forward to the lessons to spend time with Sofia. It was a progressive journey too, filled with happy moments for my kid ( who is rather hard to manage). Sofia's creativity and character are suitable for my kid. I vouch for Sofia.

Misaki Yamamoto

I managed to fine-tune my bad Japanese accent into standard English and Mandarin under Sofia's coaching.

We are Canadian expat living in Kuala Lumpur with a special child. We had tried a few private tutor and we were happy that Teacher Lee managed to handle my daughter who is willful and needs much patience and grace. They got along well after a short while and my daughter turned out like Miss Lee and always looked forward to having more lessons with her.

Leah

I'm Japanese pre-university student in Malaysia, through the recommendation of my parents' friend, teacher Lee helped me a lot with my IELTS and English communication problems. Lessons are very relaxing, easy and enjoyable. I highly recommend teacher Zara Sofia Lee as a personal tutor.

Mina O\'connor

We are Irish/Malay family with 2 boys. I was recommended by my Singaporean friend to Ms. Lee, learning that her daughter scored full A under the guidance of Ms Lee. We had Ms. Lee for exam preparation. She is a honest and dedicated teacher, who is direct and straight forward to the points in addressing the progress and performance. She is trustworthy and we count on her for the learning matter. Thank you.

Tan Boon Hin

I'm a Malaysian business owner with limited formal languages communication skill. I have several English tutors at the same time, but Ms. Lee is the one who can teach me with multilingual explanation. She interviewed me in depth to understand my background so to analyse and gauge a realistic learning expectation with me. She is a strategist. She is also a punctual, dedicated and no-nonsense person. Now, she is also a private tutor for my wife and children.

Kim Ji Hyun

We are 2 Korean brothers studying in Malaysia. My younger brother failed in his English accessment test. As a result, he was unable to enroll into the school. We were recommended by a Korean friend to Ms Lee for English and Chinese home-schooling. My brother is a fun lover and enjoy no-study life. I heard that the korean friend's son became looking forwarding to go to the class of Ms. Lee after 3-month of resistance. So we gave it a try. My brother told me that Ms. Lee is a good teacher and he respects her, although she could be strict sometimes. I thank Ms. Lee because she is a responsible, caring teacher. My parents are in Korea, but we can count on Ms. Lee as our home tutor.

Takanori Suzuki

I'm a Japanese expat in Kuala Lumpur and I was facing critical dilemma of communication in English. Ms. Lee was a responsible tutor and she dedicated to plan and tailored-make a learning syllabus which only for my personal needs - listening and pronunciation. I was a very busy employee so learning progress was not speedy but Ms. Lee was very patient, considerate and professional in guiding and couching me about my difficulties, and i managed to overcome my old habit of strong Japanese accent, at the same time improved in my listening, grammar and vocabulary. Besides, Ms. Lee also helped me a lot with my presentation in which, she is not only having a good background of it, but also a very personable person herself. As a result, I let my wife and son learn from Ms. Lee too. I'm also very thankful for her flexibility in accommodating my busy schedule. She is also punctual person. I highly recommend Ms. Lee if you are looking for a professional private tutor.

Janice

We are a Singaporean expat family with 2 kids, struggle finding good tutor for slow learners. I highly recommend Ms. Lee as a tutor. She has been teaching my children for 1 years and she has a wonderful rapport with people especially with my children. Ms. Lee has the ability to connect with them and her talent with teaching simple concepts, as well as advanced topics. Ms. Lee has excellent written and communication skills, extremely organized and most importantly, responsible and reliable. Ms. Lee accomplished these tasks with great initiative and with a very positive attitude.

I really like the way she made me feel comfortable especially with the things that I did not understand. Also, I like the way how she is confident with the way she teaches which in turn makes me confident with what I am learning. That is how I know that it is worth it to take classes with her. She adapts her teaching based on how the student is so that she knows the pace to go with a student. I would definitely recommend her to any other IELTS student to take her classes!

Master of Education (Language & Literature)

Experience

I have vast experience with both local and expatriate students and have been working in education for the past 14 years in a variety of different educational settings such as Lorna Whiston Language Centre, after a corporate stint in Singapore and Malaysia. I have a particular interest in Language and Literature and graduated top of my cohort with a Master of Education with a CGPA of 3.7/4.0. I also have a degree in Journalism and had served as a member of a university’s Advisory Board representing the Faculty of Education.I have been teaching students from a variety of local and international schools, building their confidence, and preparing them for IGCSE Checkpoint examinations as well as delivering classes in English Literature, Communicative and Business English to adult learners.

 The first lesson will be an assessment of where you/your child is at according to the 4 strands of language learning: Speaking, listening, reading and writing. We will then work out the schedule based on the learning objectives. As this is a private tutoring session, there will be opportunities to customize the lessons according to students' abilities and learning objectives. For example, an 'express' student would have the opportunity to take on more challenging work and would not only be restricted to learning at their class/age level. Similarly, students who require additional help would require more scaffolding and differentiation to learn comfortably at their pace and current abilities. I can help with that. Let's have a chat!

Tutoring Approach

I am a strong proponent of lifelong learning and believe that students have different learning abilities, and an effective educator would be able to identify and bridge the gap in learning. English is a beautiful and expressive language and being able to communicate and express your thoughts and opinions succinctly gives one an edge, be it in academics or the workplace. My tutoring approach is constructivist in nature and encompasses a broad variety of skills including creativity, critical thinking, digital and language competency to meet the challenges of the 21st century. I subscribe to quality resources for resources and provide personalised yearly reports as feedback on your/your child's learning trajectory.  Learning requires the consistency and time commitment both from the parents, student and teacher. Testimonials and results available upon request.

Subjects taught: English Enrichment, IGCSE, Academic English, Creative Writing, Literature, Conversational English, Business English

Although she comes across as strict initially, she is quite relatable. She gives me IGCSE exam papers to practice on, so I know what to expect. She also asks me about my day and is generally very funny. She understands terms like #slay and #Yes. Very good quality, top 10/10 teacher, and many thanks.

Renee

She’s very passionate about her job. She’s also prepares the materials needed for her students on specific chapters and will go in depth to explain certain parts of the question that students may find difficult. Therefore for my finals, I got an A for my English first language ( IGCSE ). If you’re looking for someone who’s experienced and patient I wholeheartedly 100% recommend Ms Khoo.

Monica

I have been a student of Ms Khoo throughout my primary and secondary days, where her guidance has led me to a high level of English fluency. I had stopped tuition for a while but right after I have picked it up again, Ms Khoo has helped me develop more confidence in essay writing in a short time -- on top of picking up strengths and building up upon them, she also provides criticism and advice in a positive way that gives students the motivation and initiative to continuously improve. Whether you are studying with Ms Khoo for the long-term or the short-term, get ready to see your English skills level up!

Kelly Khoo

Hi Lauren. thank you for the wonderful business english lessons for my staff which you have performed par excellance. My staff enjoyed themselves and I have seen vast improvement in their written and verbal communications under your tutorship.

Renèe Tan

I didn’t like reading or just learning in general but when I first met Miss Khoo she effectively captured my interested in the English language. So far she’s has taught me English and literature for 6 years and introduced to me Percy Jackson books and classics. I’m attending university soon and these memories will always stay with me.

Nes

She has an incredible gift for teaching. She is a dedicated tutor helping me to improve my language skill daily. Her teaching skills and knowledge is commendable. I am progressively achieving my career goals because of her. I was an executive when I met her and now I am leading a department in a reputable company. Her passion and dedication are beyond words!

Shaun Tay

She's really hands-on and cares about her students. Witnessed this first hand. Puts the extra effort by writing student evaluations twice a year for those taking a year's worth of classes. I also appreciate the consistency with classes, very rarely does she cancel scheduled classes. A true professional and a proper teacher that's leagues ahead of the usual disengaged tuition teachers that are pretty much going thru the motions of teaching a child.

Trisha

I'm so happy to have studied and improved in my English communication and writing skills with Mrs Tay. She simplifies difficult concepts and makes it relatable.

Bachelor's Degree, CELTA, Goethe-Zertifikat C1, TestDaF 5.5.4.5

Experience

Reach me directly on Fb ujoelee. Oder schick mir eine Nachricht, 0 1 3 7 4 9 9 6 8 5 ist die Nummer. I speak English, German, Cantonese, Malay, and basic Mandarin.

GERMAN: "I help A Level students pass their German language exams to prepare for study in Germany."

Since 2018 I have prepared more than 100 A Level students for their Cambridge AS Level German exam (Papers 1, 2, 3), of which two received Top in Malaysia award for the November 2020 examination series. I have also tutored beginners starting from zero to learn German for the Goethe A1, A2, and B1 exams. With a C1 in the Goethe-Zertifikat proficiency exam and having scored 5.5.4.5 in the TestDaF exam myself, I can share with you from my personal experience important exam techniques to deal with  Goethe and TestDaF tasks and questions.

ENGLISH: "I help English learners improve their speaking and vocabulary to communicate better at work, at school, and in social situations."   

Since 2012 I have taught English to secondary school and college students as well as adults.

CANTONESE: "I help non-Cantonese speakers practice conversation to connect better with their friends, colleagues, and clients in the local community, and I also help semi-speakers revive their language skills to reconnect with their family heritage."

Driven by a burning passion to keep my heritage language alive, I am glad to help others learn conversational Cantonese through speaking practice.

Tutoring Approach

Online, with notes, written exercises, listening and speaking live. Let me know your target, we work together to achieve it. We start with the sound system of the language, then go to basic grammar, sentence structure and word understanding step by step. I use a communicative, interactive approach based on your needs. When we talk about things important to you, you practice, absorb, and activate what we cover in the lesson, whether it's a grammar topic or functional language. For German we can do exam preparation techniques or focus on specific skills building (speaking, listening, writing, reading) depending on what you want. For spoken English and Cantonese the learning focus will be on dialogues and conversation topics.

Alyson

I started learning German with Lee since about six months ago and am now at B1-ish level. Lee is a great teacher; he provides really useful and productive exercises which he goes through with you in every class. His style of teaching is full of clarity and he manages to explain the complex aspects of the language really well. What I especially like is that we would have normal, everyday conversations in German before we go into learning the more technical stuff. He is also great with jokes and his classes feels nothing like the regular rigid "classes", which can end up to be quite boring. If you're looking to learn German efficiently and quickly from scratch, look no further!

Koay

Patient, kind and generous! Mr. U Joe guided me step by step from zero to A1 – he’d always explain in detail, making sure you would understand. He is familiar with the Goethe Institute syllabus and will prep you more than enough for each section of the exam. His materials are always fun and engaging yet challenging. Mr. U Joe never got impatient with me if I ever forgot a word or something that has been taught previously. He is always there for me along the way, answering any questions of mine. Most of all, he cracks good dad jokes!

I am of British national, staying in the UK and learning online piano lessons with Donovan. Great start, great teacher! Good first piano lesson with Donovan today.

Ashira Malka

I am learning online Mandarin (Kung Fu specialism) with Donovan; and I am a US citizen residing in the US. I have studied many languages with many teachers and his lessons are stellar and outstanding! He is very organized and tailored the lessons to my interest – which means his lessons really held my interest! Donovan is indeed an excellent teacher in many ways: He is fun, bright, attentive and as detail-oriented as you want to be! You get to pick your own level of detailed orientation within your own lessons and it can even vary lesson-by-lesson; I have never met a teacher like this before!

Joshua Chun Wah Kam

I am a doctorate student at an American University, currently doing a piece of research and writing a dissertation on Asian food, which requires the use of Cantonese. Donovan is an incredibly diligent, thoughtful, prepared tutor. His online Cantonese course is like a classroom experience, and he is both prepared for the course material as well as willing to follow up on more complex questions for the next lesson. His teaching style is adaptable to the needs of students (in my case, Cantonese lessons - I have a very specific research focus and he has been more than willing to accommodate). In addition, he blends some elements of traditional Chinese education with a western outlook and pedagogical style. Would highly recommend him.

Marc

I am a senior partner of a German law firm based in Germany; and I have been taking online legal English (English for lawyers) lessons from Mr. Donovan. I often travel between Germany and Kuala Lumpur for work purpose and his online lessons match this requirement. He is a very reliable teacher who listens to exactly what I want. He takes time for my questions and uses very good learning materials. We always have interesting discussions. This makes the lessons fun.

Steve

A positive and patient piano instructor that makes me feel good and tailors the online piano classes to my style. Mr Donovan is doing a great job in helping me to prepare for the piano examination of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM), London. In fact, I sat for and passed my ABRSM Initial Grade Piano Exam with the highest ranking of distinction on the first attempt, after having just seven lessons with Donovan. And I am based in the US and often travel to Beijing, China for work purpose. Highly recommended.

Alika Jean-Jacques

Mr. Donovan is an awesome Mandarin teacher. Patient and knowledgeable, with great energy to keep kids engaged. Highly recommend.

Amanda Black

Great class and a great teacher. Mr. Donovan is very well organized and encourages everyone to participate. He teaches lessons from textbooks and workbooks. The lessons cover speaking, writing, and listening. I love the fact that he makes kids repeat after him so that they are well engaged in the class. He makes learning fun. Great class, very enjoyable and I highly recommend it.

Malcolm

I am an adult enrolled in this mandarin class with Mr. Donovan. I am currently working in a medical field which requires me to speak to mandarin speaking clients. I took medical chinese language classes with Mr Donovan, it is conducted online which is convenient as I have a tight schedule due to work. Based on the classes with Mr Donovan, I can vouch that he is very passionate about teaching. Every class that he delivers are concise and he provides suitable materials for you to learn before classes. He is able to draw your attention by making the class more captivating in various ways.

I am an adult. Working in the automotive sales industry. I am learning Spoken Cantonese from Mr Kwan. The lessons provided is through online video call. It’s been 3 months already since I started to learn from him. Before I join Mr Kwan’s Lessons, my knowledge of Cantonese was completely zero. After a while, I noticed that I could possibly understand my colleagues speaking to each other. it’s not that much, but that is what i can say good progress for me. I feel there is so much improvement week after week. this has been useful in my daily working life. Online lessons from Mr Kwan are very effective. Mr Kwan’s passion, commitment, dedication, patience, flexibility in lesson rescheduling, communication (clarity in lesson delivery), organization (notes/learning material given to me), professionalism (manners in speaking, answering my doubts and replies; timeliness in starting lessons), generosity in extra lesson time given to me in his teaching is way up to the standard and unexpected. His styles of teaching i.e. friendliness, engagement, hands-on & practical approach are very straightforward and easy to communicate. In conclusion, I would highly recommend Mr Kwan to be your Cantonese teacher. I believe his other lessons will definitely be the same standard and teaching style as well.

After the 5 -10 lessons from Mr Kwan finally now Adam can watch Chinese show with me and he understands and can speak Chinese in a very proper way. Adam really enjoy his Chinese class with Mr Kwan. He is really good to make someone focus on his class yet fun to learn!

He is very dedicated to the teachings. He allots extra time on all lessons to make sure the student really grasps the weeks lesson, making it easy to practice over the week till the next lesson. I am an adult residing in Kuching , Sarawak and he is from KL, yet his online classes are so good that it is like having a real teacher beside you. He uses excellent audio visual equipment for his teachings so all online classes have been extremely smooth and with no communication disruptions. His years of experience serves well as he is able to render the lesson and acknowledge the mistakes instantly and provide immediate rectification.

Education

Cambridge CELTA, Bachelor of Laws (Hons)

Experience

A full-time tutor and native speaker of English, I specialise in teaching English for both exam preparation and communicative purposes. Over the last eight years, I’ve taught students of all levels and ages, accumulating more than 4,000 hours doing so. At the same time, I've also worked with students of various ethnicities and cultural backgrounds, with many of my students coming from countries like Korea, China, Japan, India, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Libia, and the Netherlands. My extensive experience in language teaching has not only enabled me to easily adapt my material and teaching style to suit a wide range of learners, but it has also allowed me to quickly identify the unique strengths and weaknesses of each student.

Additionally, my familiarity with scoring and technique requirements of exams like IELTS, IGCSE and Checkpoint mean that I’m able to offer dedicated courses for each of these exams. In terms of my formal qualifications, I am certified by the University of Cambridge under the English teaching programme CELTA, and I hold a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) from Bristol Law School. Further certification by Dyslexia International and University College London (UCL) also allows me to assist children with learning difficulties, such as ADHD and Dyslexia. Presently, I am in the process of completing the prestigious Cambridge DELTA course to further enhance my ability to offer effective and highly personalised English lessons.  

Tutoring Approach

An initial assessment is conducted to help determine a student’s level of proficiency and identify areas for improvement. A personalised study plan is then provided to let students know their strengths and weaknesses as well as the time it would take for them to achieve their goals. I always welcome feedback to ensure that the materials I use are suitable for the learner and that it matches with their expectations of the lessons.

Exam Candidates

  • In order to help students understand what is expected of them in an exam, I work closely with the scoring requirements of that exam. Once students are familiar with the marking criteria, we practise applying that knowledge in a series of practice questions and past papers. At the same time, model answers and lots of materials for self-study are provided to ensure students are able to make progress outside of our lessons. Challenging areas are given more attention, while a systematic approach is used to reduce mistakes and improve response quality over time. I find that one of the reasons why many students fail to succeed in exams is because they are unsure of what is expected of them or how an examiner might view their work. My approach guides them in this area.

Language Learners

  • Believing that language learning should never be contained within a textbook or the four walls of a classroom, my approach focuses on language aspects that are relevant and immediately applicable to a person’s daily life. In this way, students have a greater chance of remembering and using what they’ve learnt in lessons. Meanwhile, a heavy emphasis is placed on aspects like vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation, as I believe these to be the core of language learning and necessary for long-term improvement. In order to improve fluency, students should expect to engage in relaxed discussions on up-to-date topics that match their interests, while occasional role-plays or games will be used to practise vocabulary or grammar. Rest assured that my lessons are always detailed and thorough, with practice and error correction given by the end of each lesson to solidify learning.

Reviews

Asya

I have been taking English classes with Timothy twice a month since 2019 mainly to practice speaking and pronunciation. Timothy is a very friendly and patient teacher. He always explains difficult vocabulary by giving me different examples. I'm also having business English class with him, and he will ensure I have different topic for discussion in each class.

Wana

Timothy guides Hanis to construct sentences using sensory details. He invokes her mind to think out of the box and write descriptively. His gentle demeanour and encouraging approach makes her comfortable to relate to him. Her essays have improved tremendously under his tutelage. Even her Y6 class teacher is impressed with her progress.

Yukiko

I’ve been taking Timothy’s English lesson once a week for 2 years. I highly recommend his lesson. He always tries to identify what is my weakness/ strength in English, and points them out precisely. Thanks to his pertinent feedback, I can feel rest assured with my English now.

Su

I needed to take IELTS last minute, for my work visa application. I was panicking and worried because it was unexpected and I only had short duration of time. I'm thankful that i managed to find Timothy on Myprivate Tutor. He is extremely patient. I went through a few classes with him before the exam. He provided all the materials and gave me some examples on how the exam would be like. In the end, I got higher than the expected grades, which was according to Tim’s assessment. Here I would highly recommend anyone who need a tutor for Ielts to refer to Timothy!

Giam

The lessons were clear and the contents and teaching are effective as well. Tim know the IELTS marking process well, so i got clear instructions of what to improve and how to score. Other than that, the lessons were completely taught in an English-speaking enviroment which help me gain confidence when speaking English since I dont speak english regularly. The writing part is the most difficult to me, however, with significant help from the lessons and endless training, I am able to write a proper essay in 40 min, which to be honest, was very difficult to me in the beginning. All in all, after i had experience about 7 lessons and taking IELTS exam, I think the lessons were essential to me and in fact, I may not score 6.5 without the help of these lessons. Therefore, big appreciation to Tim!

Anaan

Helped me a lot to improve my IELTS writing, from a 6.5 to a 7.0 band within just 1 week. A lot of resources were provided and explained all the important details on both the writing tasks as well as speaking task.

Sara

Hi Timothy! I would like to thank you for all the support. It was extremely helpful and eased my path in IELTS exam. The comments for the essays and your responsibility were helpful. Thank you again!

Nazhan

I went for an IELTS crash course with Mr Tim just a week before my actual IELTS exam. Mr Tim is very well versed in all there is to know about IELTS and he explained to me from scratch how to go about each component. He emphasises on the IELTS examiner’s marking technique and this gave me a solid studying foundation before taking the exams. Tim is super generous with his notes, he provides whatever notes and revision books you require without any additional payment. I managed to achieve Band 7.5 overall, and because of that I strongly recommend his services.

Wilson

I am an university student and I have had the pleasure working with him for past couple of months. His teaching method has greatly developed my fundamentals in English especially grammar. If I am to say one thing I like about his teaching method, it would have to be how he always pinpoints my mistakes after each lesson.

Samer

Tim has helped me to progress from band 6 to band 7 in IELTS writing in less than 5 weeks. Before we started lessons, I had taken IELTS 3 times. First, he examined my writing and identified the issues that I need to remedy. Then he customized a specific plan for me and followed up with weekly action items. Tim also advised me on how to allocate time to practice different areas of writing such as structuring, improving paragraph development, fixing repetitive spelling mistakes, etc. I am very happy that I found Tim and I highly recommend him as a tutor.

Irfan

I have been under Tim's tutelage for a few months and I must say it's been quite an experience. Tim's way of approaching learning is by treating his client as he would his friends and also through systematic methods that are fun and easy to understand.

Timothy has assisted me a great deal in preparing for my IELTS writing examinations. He’s an excellent teacher and know how to pick up on my strengths and weaknesses in a short period of time. He is well versed with the IELTS marking system & could point out my errors in order to achieve the required band score. Not only that, with my busy schedule I find that he’s flexible If I need to plan a couple of last minute classes to achieve certain aims of the exam. I strongly recommend him for anyone planning to sit for an English exam!

Christine

Tim helped me to prepared my writing and speaking for the IELTS test. We spent most of the time on writing and I improved a lot with time management. I was worried about not being able to finish the writing test in time but it turns out that I still have time for checking grammar at the end. We practiced speaking test at Tim’s place as it’s quieter and more similar to actual test scenario. We only practiced twice because the writing part was more important for me, but the practice helped me to be less nervous when it came to the real test. Overall, I think the lesson with Tim was very helpful for my IELTS preparation, especially for the writing.

Yong Yi

Mr. Timothy is a teacher who is very focused and dedicated in his teaching. He will try his best to help you pass your exam, and he will give you all the material you need for practice. He usually corrects my speech when I am wrong, and I can ask him about any words that I'm not sure about. I enjoy his classes because they are fun, and sometimes we will make some jokes. Mr. Timothy is a really good teacher. I highly recommend him to others!

Timothy worked with my daughter for 6 months to prepare for IGCSE English as a First Language. I liked the way he motivated her to aim for the best in the exams.

I'm happy that you are part of her achievement. Thank you so much!

Moreover, he was also very friendly guy who you can share all your ideas to make you feel more comfortable. I would highly recommend him.

Syakir

I liked Tim's humble and friendly approach in dealing with students. Although my English was at a good level, Tim helped me improve and corrected some mistakes. His knowledge of the English language was quite impressive and he speaks with very little accent, which I think will help ESL students. He helped me prepare for the IGCSE English as a Second Language test and I managed to get an A.

Timothy managed to improve my writing abilities for my IELTS exam from a 6.5 to 7+ with just 4 classes! I highly recommend him if you are taking your IELTS exam.

Timothy is very passionate and hardworking teacher. What I like most about Timothy is that he's willing to not only explain easily; when he point out my errors, he can also quickly identify what my weakness is and always note it to prepare for next class. It helped a lot to make up for my weak point. Other than that,Timothy can also adapt to teach any kind of students just as he is teaching my mom,me and my sister as well! Even though we all have different levels and goals. He's been helping us to improve in many ways!9

He has also been diligent in following up with me and sharing additional material after our lessons, which I really appreciate. Thank you, Timothy, you have been a great help.

From this vast array of experiences I have the priviledge to teach students from various cultures, backgrounds, and personalities. This allows me to communicate and motivate students at different levels. Familliar with Cambridge IGCSE school syllabus, Malaysian government school syllabus, as well as Singapore school syllabus.

Tutoring Approach

I plan my lessons based on the student's individual situation. My objective is to assist a student to excel gradually and instill positive encouragement coupled with commendation so as to make the student enjoy what he or she is learning.

Tutoring Approach

My goal is entirely dependent on what my students aim to achieve. I structure my lesson plan according to what each student wishes to gain from my lessons. I believe that lessons should be made interesting and therefore I try to incorporate viral trends and current affairs when I teach. When it comes to learning a new language, patience is the key and I have plenty of it for people who really want to learn.

Sarah taught me english for IELTS. Her lessons were extremely flexible and cater to my needs. She always make sure that I am able to catch up with her lessons and provide me with sufficient exercises. I found her 2 weeks prior to my IELTS exam yet she is able to squeeze me in as much as possible and make time for me. We had 4 hrs of lesson time and I honestly wished I found her sooner so I could have more lessons with her. She is friendly and as a shy person, I find it easy to interact with her. No awkward moments! I managed to get the band that I aimed for with her help. Seriously recommended!!

Master of English Education

Experience

I have been teaching English since I was studying for my Bachelor's degree program in 2010. Up to now, I have taught students with various backgrounds in private lessons and regular classes. In teaching English, my students range from toddlers to adults, but in Bahasa Indonesia, mostly I teach adults for some specific purposes. 

Tutoring Approach

I always start the lesson by creating a comfortable and safe environment for learners to learn and have a discussion on their strengths and weaknesses as well as learning goals so I can analyze their needs and set the learning objectives to achieve by the end of the course. I'm a CELTA (Pass A) certified teacher (Cambridge Engish Level Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) with a strong educational background (Bachelor and Master) in English Language Teaching and extensive teaching exprience for years.
