Tutoring Approach

Children pick up bad habits and wrong techniques easily in their early years of learning. Hence the first teacher plays a vital role in the success of learning an instrument as corrections of wrong techniques learnt would require diligent and painstaking effort on the part of the teacher as well as the  student. Techniques such as the correct key attack, touch, hand position, body movement, transfer of weight etc are taught early on from beginners stage. Success in learning would also depend on how closely a student is able to follow the teacher's instruction on how to practice. A piano lesson would include Practical and Theory of Music, Sight reading, Aural and Music Appreciation. Practical would comprise of a technique book, a lesson book and additional repertoire pieces.

Bachelor's Degree, CELTA, Goethe-Zertifikat C1

Experience

Since 2017 I have tutored beginners starting from zero to learn German for the Goethe A1, A2 and B1 exams. I am familiar with the exam format, expectations and preparation methods. Since 2012 I have taught English to Malaysian secondary school and college students as well as adult foreigners from China, Taiwan, Vietnam, and several other Asian countries. I have completed the CELTA course at the British Council Malaysia where I learnt the latest communication-based teaching techniques for better English learning. Seit 2017 unterrichte ich Deutsch für Anfänger, um sie vorzubereiten, die A1-, A2- und B1-Prüfungen des Goethe-Instituts abzulegen. Ich kenne mich gut mit dem Prüfungsformat, den Erwartungen und den Vorbereitungsmethoden aus. 2012 habe ich angefangen, Englisch zu unterrichten. Die Lerner sind malaysische Schüler und Studenten sowie erwachsene Ausländer aus China, Taiwan, Vietnam und einigen anderen asiatischen Ländern. Ich habe den CELTA-Kurs beim British Council Malaysia absolviert, in dem ich die zeitgemäßen kommunikationsbasierten Lehrmethoden für ein besseres Englischlernen gelernt habe.

Tutoring Approach

From my experience as a tutor and language learner, I understand the problems and difficulties in learning German or English. I can explain things to you in your language. We will make a plan to achieve your goals based on your needs. Whether you need it for an exam, practical everyday use, social communication, or business, let's work together to improve your language skills and confidence. Aus meiner Erfahrung als Tutor und Sprachlerner verstehe ich genau die Probleme und Schwierigkeiten beim Erwerben der Sprachvermögen während des Erlernens von Deutsch und Englisch. Ich kann Ihnen die Begriffe und Konzepte in Ihrer Sprache erklären. Nach Ihren Bedürfnissen stellen wir zusammen einen Plan, damit Sie Ihre Ziele erreichen. Ob Sie die Sprachfertigkeiten für eine Prüfung, das tägliche Gespräch, die soziale Kommunikation oder den Beruf benötigen, arbeiten wir zusammen, um die Sprachkenntnisse zu erlangen und Ihr Selbstvertrauen zu stärken.

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 fluent in Bahasa Malaysia and Cantonese, with a little knowledge of Mandarin. My accent is entirely native and neutral. Living and working in Asia I understand the struggles people go through when learning English, and I am familiar with the common pitfalls.  Are you tired of spending money and time on classes and you still can’t communicate in English?   IS THIS YOU …  I want to know what to say in English  I want to pronounce words clearly in English   I want to speak naturally in English and not worry about grammar all the time   I want to be confident every time I speak English and not feel nervous and stuck   I want to hold a conversation in English and share my thoughts and ideas   I want to tell a story in English and share experiences  I want to do business with English speaking clients   I want to relay my messages in English during a meeting   I want to go for interviews in English  I want to read articles and reports written in English  I want to watch English movies and understand them  I want to surf the net for information in English  I want to travel to an English speaking country and be able to communicate without fear

Hi, I’m Logeshwary from Old Klang Road. I have graduated from City University College. I have 2 year teaching experience (Home Tuition). Actually I have been doing Teaching for Charity for the less fortunate since I was 18. Since I know Tamil, I can explain to students in both Tamil and English or BM to ensure their understanding.  I am flexible with timings and can teach students as per their scheduled timings. I help students in clearing doubts they have in any subject or topic. I can brief and clear solution to their problems. I can quickly identify the subject or topic in which a student is facing difficulty.

Tutoring Approach

My teaching style is created by myself which focus more to fail-prove method. Which means I emphasise on the student to multiple task-&-exam oriented approach so that the student's brain will get used to the subject or chapter autonomously (like how you drive car). By this way, the chances for the student to make silly mistake or hoping too much on forecast and other methods will be less thus making the student to be stress free and more focus.

With an early working background as a trilingual translator, 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 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, hours/week prior to appointment on phone.

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'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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
