Education

Bachelor of Science

Experience

I provide home tutoring for academic subjects such as primary level & secondary level since 2005. I have been teaching Maths, Add Maths for both national & international students(IGCSE). Previously, I also provided lessons in Piano, Chinese, English, Science subjects but I have eventually moved to focus mainly in Maths, Add Maths and Piano lessons. I have taught more than 50 students, mostly 1-1 and small group class of not more than 5 students in class. To me, quality comes before quantity.

Tutoring Approach

My greatest achievement in tutoring over the years has been turning under performing students in certain subjects into great improvement of grades. One great example was a primary 4 student that went from F to A within a semester. More importantly is to make the students falling in love with these subjects. Once they love the subjects, everything else will be in place. I have great relationships with both the parents & the students. Overall, I love what I do. I think that matters the most.

I took IELTS in August and got 6.0 for writing. I retake again in December and went to her 2 weeks before my IELTS. I specifically requested guidance in writing and it improved from 6.0 to 6.5. I find that she is very dedicated as she checked and analysed all my previous essays to check for common mistakes that I tend to make when I write essays. The common mistakes she detected has helped me a lot in improving my writing. I find that she is very sincere in teaching as she really makes sure that I understand the items that she has taught. She also gave me a lot of tips to help me get higher marks in the IELTS Writing.

Master's Degree in English Studies

Experience

I have been teaching English for 12 years. Throughout the years, I have guided and helped students from all walks of life. Today, my students include kids, teenagers, and working adults. I teach the National, as well as the IGCSE English syllabus. I also train students for the ESOL, IELTS and MUET examinations. I believe that having a good command over the English language opens doors to a great array of opportunities, and therefore, providing people with the right set of English skills is one of my passions.

Tutoring Approach

I plan my lesson, and make all the necessary preparation ahead, including photocopy of handouts, and lesson content. Lessons involve reading, writing, listening and speaking. Having a good command over the English language, especially grammar, allows me to deliver lessons of impeccable quality. I believe in Albert Einstein's quote "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.", and therefore, I make it a point of teaching in a simple, yet effective manner.

B.Sc (Hons)

Experience

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.

Tutoring Approach

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.

JLPT CERTIFIED

Experience

JLPT Certified and previously working in Japanese's company. 

Tutoring Approach

PLS is a system created using my own experience after learning Japanese for 10 years. PLS consist of three bases which are pronunciation, listening and speaking. The reason I choose these bases as my method of teaching is because without proper and correct pronunciation, learner cannot speak correct Japanese words, thus leading to communication failure. Secondly, without good listening skill, learners will misunderstood and will wrongly interpret the words spoken by others speakers. Thirdly, a with combination of pronunciation, listening and speaking only will help learners attain good Japanese language skills. Plus, these three bases will help learners in solving miscommunication and avoid communication’s failures. Methods of teaching: Online or face to face (penang island, mainland penang or kedah area( kulim, sungai petani, padang serai, lunas).
