Timothy

Male, 31 Yrs Pro

8 Years of Teaching Experience

(31 Reviews)

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.

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!

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Giam Zeng Keat

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!

Tabina

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!

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.

Experience

Reach me directly on Fb ujoelee. Oder schick mir eine Nachricht, 0 1 2 9 3 5 6 7 9 9 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.

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 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!

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.

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 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.

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.

I have 10 years of experience. I graduated from a Linguistic University in Belarus with major in English and French. My specialization is Teaching English (and French) as a second language, plus teaching Russian (native speaker). I received a qualification TEFL and have had experience of teaching English at different levels (University, High / Middle School, Kindergarten, young and adult learners, etc) in different countries including China, Thailand, Vietnam, Belarus. I used to live in the USA and Australia as well.

Tutoring Approach

I am a professional teacher with a deep passion to give my students the best of the knowledge and skills I can in order for them to achieve their goals. My classes are always different involving multimedia, different innovative techniques that keep students interested in every lesson and eventually progressing in learning the language. The worst thing is when students get bored with the classes and lose their interest, and this is why I focus on making sure you will learn and enjoy at the same time.

Tan

I have spent many years and a lot of money for my kids to learn in group classes but their techniques is very poor. Decided to engage Yan for my kids for private class and I think my kids learnt more in one lesson with her than 1 month in group lesson at D**. A bit hesitant at first because it’s not cheap but now I think it’s worth it.

Her response to my WhatsApp messages were very quick and kind. She is always punctual too. Her instructions during lessons are polite and easy to understand. My children enjoyed her class so much. They could improve swimming skills a lot in short term and achieved their target with her appropriate coaching. Thank you very much & we will come back again!

She was able to look at the problems I had in my swimming techniques and could fix the mistakes I was making efficiently. In the lessons the time was used well and therefore I became more confident in this sport, improving greatly. James

My two teenagers went through a short training stint with her and their strokes have improved significantly since. Not only that, they have also gained some new skills too (Pippa loves the turn very much). We appreciate that she communicates well with the kids, stern when needed but at the same time a good friend to them. They absolutely enjoyed the classes. Thank you very much, and will be back for more lessons when the kids return to Malaysia. Cheers!

I have several years of experience teaching both children and adults. I have the patience that it takes to deal with children and new learners among the adults too. I offer a free demo class to introduce my style of teaching to interested individuals /parents.

Tutoring Approach

I use different approaches to teach each individual vastly depending on his/her ability to grasp the lesson. I may use the same book with every student but my techniques to deliver the lesson vary to suit the pace of each student.

Degree in law, diploma in learning disorder management and psychology. I graduated with a degree in law from a UK university. In 2009, I obtained a diploma in Learning Disorders Management and Psychology.

Experience

I've tutored primary and secondary students for both local and international syllabus, as well as university students (in law subjects). I've also tutored both young and adult learners, preparing them for their IELTS, in groups as well as one-on-one. I had spent a few years as an English teacher in a language center but now I have returned to my role as a seasoned HR practitioner, which enables me to utilise my law background. When I am not in my primary role, I tutor those who need guidance in Law, English, Literature and HR subjects. I am available for a one-on-one tutoring service as well as in a group, anywhere in the Klang Valley.

Tutoring Approach

I use several tutoring tools/approaches which will be determined upon assessment of the student, prior to undertaking the tutoring post.

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

For over 18 years, I have been Tutoring, Coaching and Mentoring students from Public Secondary Schools and Pre-Universities as well as those from CIE syllabus-based Private and International Schools. I teach subjects like Accounting, Mathematics, Additional Mathematics, English First Language and ICT. I prepare students for the PT3, SPM and STPM exams and/or the CIE IGCSE, O-Level, AS and A2 Level exam.

Tutoring Approach

First, I would go through the basic concepts for the subject concerned Second, I would explain in details some worked examples step by step. Then, students are given graded exercises to assess their full grasp on the principles just taught.  They are encouraged to ask questions to clear any doubts they might have over the topic learned. Next, they attempt more challenging questions with minimal guidance for confidence building. I apply tailored-made teaching techniques according to each student’s learning capability.   They are inculcated the importance of good study habits; a passion for learning and gaining knowledge. I employ positive reinforcement to challenge their limits, discover and realize their full potential for and by themselves. “No one is born an idiot. Likewise a genius is not born but made.”     In summary, my tutoring methodology and student learning process are as follows: 1)  Reading for Comprehension and Understanding 2)  Observing for Relevance and Importance 3)  Processing of Input Data 4)  Analyzing and Interpreting Output Info 5)  Concluding Outcome and Results 6)  Responding to Question Requirements
