8 Years of Teaching Experience

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.

Firstly, What I like about Timothy Au, he is ready to take responsibility to teach me in short period. Next, I like the way he makes me feel confident when i speak with him although my English is moderate level. Lastly, the slide that given really help me in writing and reading section in MUET exam. The homework and tips really work on me to improve my writing, reading and speaking task for MUET. I highly recommend he as teacher👍

Timothy has been helping me with my writing and conversational English for the past few months. During our first meeting, he was able to pinpoint areas I needed to work on. I like that he customizes his lessons based on my strengths and weaknesses. He is creative in his approach to teaching, so our lessons are never boring. 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.

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

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.

He is a fantastic guy with great teaching skills. I had only few days for my exam but he did insist me on the skills to improve my scores in the PTE examination. 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.

He made time in his busy schedule to fit me in, as the time I contacted him. I was going to sit for my IELTS in 3 weeks. He always is available if I need assisitance with any of the practice questions and he made sure that I had enough materials. Amazing tutor!

For the past six months I have been taking O-Level classes from Mr Timothy. He is responsible and makes an effort to organize his classes well by preparing worksheets, slides, past year papers, etc. I have learnt a lot from him, like how to be organized. I have gained a lot of knowledge on exam preparations from him. He also makes the surrounding comfortable and conducive while he is teaching and he gives you a lot of confidence.

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. The tips and guidance he provided were also very helpful, and I believe he contributed to her wellbeing & her success in achieving an A for her final English exam. I'm happy that you are part of her achievement. Thank you so much!

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!

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 Tims place as its 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.

Timothy has assisted me a great deal in preparing for my IELTS writing examinations. Hes 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 hes 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!

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. I would recommend him for a quality English tutor.

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.

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.

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 examiners 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.

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!

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.

Giam Zeng Keat
10/06/19

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!

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!

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.

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.

Asya Tan

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.

Mr. Ayman is a good teacher. The way that he teached is easy to understand for a beginner like me. I am learning much more than just Arabic. He always on time and never late to our tutor session. He always dedicated to make sure I can learn the language well. His knowledge in Arabic is very good, considered that he is a native speaker. For me I think if someone want to learn Arabic, they should see a native speaker who have teaching experience. Rather than local teacher who only copy paste what they have learned. The fee is reasonable with the service given. Within an hour I can learn so much and it is worth the money. He also give more than what I paid for. He also very nice and respectful towards others. Which a must characteristic for private tutors. In conclusion, he is one of the best Arabic teacher that I have that actually do what he said. Very recommended for beginners.

If you're looking to learn Arabic, and what more, from a native speaker, you're search is over. Mr.Ayman is the teacher you're looking for. Mr Ayman is punctual, patient, conscientious, and cares deeply for his students. He will make sure you grasp what he's teaching. He stresses on the big 3: writing, speaking and listening. The grammar he can teach you later. Language, being a skill, is something you have to do over and over, and Mr.Ayman is the best guide for you in your Arabic journey. Learning a language, I would imagine could be a very dry endeavour, but Mr.Ayman will make you fall in love with the Arabic language. He also throws in Quranic lessons for free if you're interested. I cannot recommend him enough. You will get your money's worth, I can guarantee you that. I'm proud to not only call him my teacher, but also a friend and someone I look up to.

I found Mr. Ayman to be very professional and dedicated individual. He has a passion for teaching and has a way with kids - which is exactly what I am looking for. With patience, Ayman was able to guide my kids well and now they are able to read, speak and write fluently. They are now able to understand and have grown to love the language (which they had always dreaded in the past). Found his unconventional ways of teaching to be a breath of fresh air compared to what I was accustomed to (other tutors are just blindly following the school syllabus). Would highly recommend him if you are looking to learn the language.

Mr. Ayman is a friendly, professional, and first-grade A+ teacher who follows unconventional teaching methods, bringing Arabic language learning process in an easy way to the student. Wide knowledge of Islamic studies when a topic pops up during the class. Highly recommended as a native speaker.

His explanation on Islamic Studies is comprehensive and clear. Everything is done in English, similar to a classroom learning. He is good in keeping my young children focused and entertained by using different approach of learning ie listening, writing, memorizing, practical, telling stories etc. Uztaz Ayman is also punctual and flexible on the tuition program.

I would say that Mr Ayman is a very professional, highly qualified, friendly and knowledgeable person. He always gives more than he suppose to, regarding time and information, and he will go hand by hand till he makes sure the student fully understands the class. Either it's Arabic language or Quran and Islamic studies, he has been teaching to my kids, he makes sure that they digested all the information, in a simple easy way by going to their level ( he is very kind with kids). Trust me on that, kids are more difficult to teach than adults. I would also like to add that the fees paid for the classes are worth it and the charges are very reasonable compared to other subjects. Sadly we are leaving Malaysia soon as my husband has been reassigned, else he will our permanent private tutor for the kids.

He is punctual, professional and the lessons are always filled with new things to learn. He also encourages you to have a discipline of reviewing the lessons and self-study in order for you to move forward and to improve quickly. He doesn't hesitate to encourage the student to ask questions.

Ayman has been tutoring my boys (12 & 8) Arabic and Quran (with Tafseer) for over 1 month, now and Alhamdulillah they have shown much progress, especially in their pronunciation. Most importantly, they enjoy their lessons! The boys will start reading & writing in Arabic soon and we look forward to their continued progress under Ayman.

Mr Ayman is a passionate educator. He is an experienced, provides clarity to the lessons objectives and utilities multiple teaching methods that suit his students needs. There is a remarkable improvement to the learning progress of my sons Arabic Language under the tutorial of Mr Ayman. He is very organized and professional, setting good vibes for his students to emulate.

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Compassionate My 5-year old daughter started with Mr Ayman early June 2019. I found him via this website after my first quick search and I am very glad I found him. I was looking for an Arabic native tutor who has years of experience teaching young non-native children as it requires a lot of patience and different sets of teaching skills in handling young children. He is very organized, punctual for the sessions, honest and take pride in his teaching. He knows how to teach children as young as 5 years old and he is straight forward in his approach. He comes prepared for every session with teaching notes and homework. He has his own sets of teaching materials and I find his teaching materials better than the official teaching materials for the local students in Saudi Arabia where my daughter goes to school. He speaks English very well. So it makes teaching easy for my daughter as English is her first language. His fee is very reasonable considering the fact that he is a native speaker and he comes to my house for the sessions.

He is very good with children and you can see that he enjoys teaching kids. Mirabelle likes Ayman very much and she is comfortable with him. sometimes he gives her chocolates as incentive.

I initially signed up for classes with Ayman to learn Arabic and Quran. After 12 sessions (3x a week), I have the basic grasp of the Arabic language with my vocabulary bank expanding at an unprecedented rate. Ayman has also helped me with my quran reciting and tajwid which has allowed me to recite the Quran smoother. Ayman has also helped me pronounce the different Ha, Haa, Kha better... A problem I have always had. Now on my second month, we are starting to create useful sentences to use in everyday life. Utilizing the vocabulary, verbs, and grammar. Having experienced the first 12 lessons and seeing results, I have also started lessons for my daughter to learn arabic. I studied arabic for 3 years many years ago in highschool but never managed to grasp the language at all. I am impressed at what Ayman is able to do for me in the first month. He is very passionate, punctual and patient. He will have an answer to all questions you may have. The cost of the class is very reasonable and justified from the results that is seen. I highly recommend for those who intends to learn or relearn Arabic and for those who wants to read the Quran and understand. He bakes a fantastic moist chocolate cake too. What else could you ask for?

Melwinder Gill
17/09/19

He’s very structured and manages to handle a class of 3 people really well - especially since all 3 of us have varying degrees of understanding and experience with the language. I’m really impressed at the pace that I’ve managed to pick up the basics of the language since I’ve had no prior experience whatsoever.

My tuition class with Mr. Ayman was excellent, he encouraged active participation which I found very conducive to learning. Mr. Ayman was always early to our classes which were held at my apartment. Mr. Ayman is a very conscientious teacher always concerned about his students progress and always willing to help his students at anytime. I truly enjoyed my classes with him and look forward to more classes with him in the near future.

First and foremost i signed up with Arabic language classes with Mr. Ayman before Covid 19 pandemic based on the reviews written here, and to be completely honest i wasn't disappointed at all, i was very impressed how professional, knowledgeable and structured he is. I am still learning with Ayman online nowadays and his online lessons as much efficient as the home one to one classes, he makes sure that i receive the learning material by email or WhatsApp and answers any question i ask him outside the learning sessions. I must say that during this 4 or 5 months duration i am able to read, write and speak Arabic way better than many of my friends who have been learning since few years. Mr. Ayman is very punctual and on time when he comes to my house or online . I have to mention also that the classes fees are very reasonable as he charges RM 80/ hour for home tuition, and online he charges RM 60 which is very cheap. Highly recommended teacher with such friendly approachable personality.

Experience

I have private tutored twenty high school students in English. I have studied in Help University for three years (2017-2020) in Bachelors in Teaching English as Second Language) course. I have done a major role in English Theatre Arts subject hence, I am willing to teach my students English Literature as well. 

Tutoring Approach

My approach to tutoring is that I tailor my tuition to the needs of the student. I will tutor in my own home (online teaching) or that of the student. I will vary my style depending on the ability and needs of the student considering their emotional intelligence. I am also willing to progress more slowly and focus on particularly weak areas if the student so desires. I will also offer pre-exam revision sessions for all exams including modular resits and conduct end of topic tests and mock exams should the student desire. I expect students to maintain regular contact in regards to their subject progressions and their individual needs. I expect students to arrive at tuition sessions with a clear idea of what it is they hope to get from the sessions (a habit of planning their lessons and questions). I will provide each student with a progress log and detailed feedback on how they are performing and areas where they need to improve, I may also set work for my students to complete outside of sessions and for this set work I will offer a marking service. I am happy to meet with the parents or guardians of my students to ascertain what they wish their child to gain from classes. I am also happy to meet with parents and guardians regularly during the tuition period to discuss their child's progress and if required I am happy to provide parents with written reports on their child's progress.

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.

Experience

A professional, caring and organized Teacher with 8 year experience of teaching multiple standard /grades. My dedication is to provide students with appropriate learning activities and adventures designed to fulfil their potential for emotional, intellectual, social and physical growth. Ability to be a team player, resolve problems and conflicts professionally.

Tutoring Approach

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 examples wherever 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.  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. I believe passionately in the huge value of tutoring to students and take great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their full potential.

Bachelor Degree in Human Development

Experience

I am a tutor with 3P-patience, passion, and professional. I have been committed in the tutorial career for more than 20 years. I used to be a school teacher for both primary Chinese and secondary Kebangsaan school. I know well about the latest syllabus and the latest trend of the exam questions. I can teach well in a lot of subjects, especially those important subjects in UPSR, PT3 and SPM Level. Additionally, I also offer some basic language course--Mandarin and English, for adults. Once you have got me, you can rest assured. After all, I am an experienced and committedtutor with PASSION.

Tutoring Approach

My approach of teaching is to be serious but not to be fierce to the student. I constantly encourage and motivate my students to achieve the best results in exam. I do not impose my students on their study. In fact, I motivate and inspire them. I do not like to "show off" to my students about how smart I am especially in solving Mathematics. I rather explain as clearly as I can to my students and make sure they understand the topics I teach. At the end of the day, students need guidance and motivation, BUT NOT to see a SHOW.

Over the past 8 years has found creative and easy ways to learn Chemistry. A tutor that focuses on her students' areas of struggle and redirect them to a simpler and understandable approach. Lessons are more practice oriented and learning takes place from there. Expect a fun, interactive and less pressure way to bond with chemistry.

Tutoring Approach

In trial class, I will be able to gauge the students' level in Chemistry. Based on that, I can make decision whether to start from basic or not. In each class student will be given handouts of notes and exercise. Tutor will be going through each notes and exercise. Upon completing a module, related past year questions will be given to the student to practice. Comprehensive exam class with specimen questions and short notes will be given by the Tutor during Examination period.

Education

B.Eng (Hons) Chemical Engineering

Experience

I have been teaching for the past 20 years. Many of my students are now successful professionals like doctors, lawyers, lecturers and engineers. I had one student who got 11 marks during his diagnostic test in Add Maths in the beginning of his Form 5. That is when they decided to hire me. And he got an A- for Add Maths in his SPM. This is just one story. I have many stories like this to share. In my 20 years of experience, I have met many students of different calibre.

Tutoring Approach

My teaching style is tailor made based on the student's strength and weakness. I simplify the subject matter in an easy to understand approach. Students are normally comfortable with me as I believe a good student-teacher relationship is important so that students will open up and will not feel shy to share their doubts with the teacher. I include a lot of motivation and techniques such as visualisation amd goal setting. I also send weekly motivational whatsapp messages. This is because I believe that motivation is very important as all students have great potential and the right motivation will be able to tap that potential in order for them to achieve greater heights.

Master of Music in Piano Performance

Experience

I consider myself a versatile musician and a passionate educator. As a performer, I have performed as a pianist and harpsichordist at the Chamber Music Series of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, as a composer, my music has been performed by the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and abroad; as a teacher, I have taught at several universities and private music schools. Some of my students have won scholarships to study at the music specialist school Wells Cathedral in the UK.

Tutoring Approach

To me, rather than mindless drilling, finding natural ways of how the hands move is the key to solving many technical issues. Instead of asking for more feelings, my instructions are concrete. I see music education as a holistic education on aesthetics. Therefore, it gives me joy to see my students grow as a person, as much as a musician, to develop a sense of love for their surrounding, for culture and history etc.

Mr Wong is patient and nice, always well-prepared for lesson. His approach is direct and helpful, effectively helped me overcome some long-due technical problems. Hence, it isn't rigid, with added musical plans and sense, I'm able to free myself from struggles and bring out the musicality with ease. As a composer, he teaches theory not merely based on guidelines, instead, he facilitates topics with compositional ideas. I see myself grow comprehensively as a pianist under his tutelage.

Experience

I've been teaching for 7 to 8 years; especially in English. Most of my students are expatriates or students who are attending international or private schools. My students come in various groups of age as young as 4 years old. My classes are always fun yet fruitful.

Tutoring Approach

I use the audio and visual methods to assist students in their progress. A placement test will be done to enable me to gage each student's level of capability in each subject. A monthly assessment report will be done if requested. As for the younger ones, I will use the phonetic methods to help them to become readers. Currently I'm available every Tuesday and Friday after 3.30pm. I prefer to meet up or discuss further with parents first before we proceed with the classes. Last but not least, along the way, students will be prompted on moral values and creative thinking. You can see the result for yourself! Guaranteed!

Tutoring Approach

My teaching approach is depending on every student's needs and also guide students in working out solutions to exam questions. I usually won't provide students with answer directly, instead I will guide and encourage them to answer the questions and this helps them in understanding as well as remembering the contents better. Other than that, I also provide students with notes which are easier for them to understand.

She is a friendly teacher. Anythings that I really don't understand in study, I can come to her, she will lead me to solve the question and she won't give the answer directly, she led me to think more. Actually I'm not really good in biology and I don't have so much confident, but she gave me hope and taught me a lot, finally I got a good result in my biology. She always prepared all the teaching material before the lesson started. She has a good knowledge in biology, her explanation always clear and easier to understand.
