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.

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!

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.

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!

His gentle demeanour and encouraging approach makes her comfortable to relate to him. Her essays have improved tremendously under his tutelage.

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.

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!

Experience

I am Australian and have been teaching Piano for the past 15 years to a variety of students ranging from 6 to 30 years old. I teach from beginner level to advanced diploma level. Once a student myself, I have previously studied with James Muir (AMEB examiner and pianist) and Elizabeth Powell (pianist and former Head of Sydney Conservatory of Music). I charge RM 180+/hour starting from beginner levels, up to RM410/hour for advanced levels. Travel costs are charged separately. Lessons are a duration of 1 hour minimum. Reasons why 1 hour is minimum. A typical lesson involves: Learning/playing technical Scales (15 min) Learning Pieces. Some students take weeks to learn a piece, others take months. Most students learn more than one piece. Typically a student will learn 3+ pieces depending on the Grade they are taking. (30 min) Theory + Pieces. Learning a piece involves going through the fundamentals and understanding concepts. Students take time processing this information. This can easily take up half a lesson. (10 min) Aural. Being able to recognise fundamentals through listening. This is a small component of Graded lessons, but it also takes time to learn over a period of weeks, months and even years. (10 min) As you can see, 15 + 30 + 10 + 10 minutes = 65 minutes. This is why I only teach 60 minute lessons as a minimum!  

Tutoring Approach

My lessons are simple. - Learn how to read music proficiently - Exercise fingers with scales - Learn finger and hand techniques - Learn music pieces by yourself at some point, then I will correct and fine tune any mistakes. Let me say this about learning music no matter what instrument you play. Hardwork and practise is key. Not talent.

I have 15 years of teaching experience and have taught students of various school background (local, private and international school students). I studied Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) for my Diploma and Degree and have graduated my Masters degree of Education (Educational Management) from University of Melbourne.  

Tutoring Approach

We are now in the 21st century and nurturing students as future leaders is very important. My teaching approach moves towards that notion. I first will start off with analyzing students' strengths and weaknesses, understanding students' characters and will then personalize my teaching depending on each student. Within the teaching and learning sessions, I will also impart the knowledge and awareness of independent learning, loving the learning process and how to be responsible of students' own learning. I believe these are important for young students to know so that they will be very much prepared for their own future.

Hello! My name is Dolly and I am a graduate English language trainer. I work in an international and multi-cultural environment helping busy, motivated English learners become more confident, bolder and braver English speakers. I was born in Malaysia but have worked, lived and travelled to many different countries around the world. English is my first language and I am a native speaker with a neutral accent. 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   

Tutoring Approach

I help students just like you every day. You’re exactly why I do what I do. I can help you overcome your fears. Learn to speak clearly and naturally.

Education

BEng. Chemical Engineering & BSc. Maths, Operational Research, Statistics and Economics. Currently studying Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching & Learning

Experience

I have taught mathematics for students from Primary 4 to Pre-university mostly under the UK Curriculum (including IGCSE and A-levels). The students I've taught have all passed, most with high grades. I usually teach on a 1-to-1 basis in an open area at the students home. Lessons are normally 2 hours, but some elect for 1 hour. I have taught children with special needs but please note I am not certified for it.

Tutoring Approach

I am someone who will adjust accordingly to the students needs if it proves to be useful.  At the beginning of the lesson I normally conduct a quick review of what's covered previously.  For new topics I teach the theory piece by piece and demonstrate 1 or 2 examples before getting students to do exercises during lessons.  To me it is more important that I get a student to understand a topic in-depth rather than get them to memorise a formula or an algorithm of steps because the latter usually results in just a surface understanding rather than a deep understanding; they know the method works but they don't know why it works.   After a few topics are covered I would normally get a student to do small tests during the lessons (usually no longer than an hour), not only to help them retain topics but also work on proper exam techniques. I try not to restrict myself to the orthodox method of teaching as it may not work for some students.  So I'm constantly researching new methods or creatively thinking of ways that would help a particular student understand certain topics.   However, math can be mundane to some if you don't sometimes inject some things to keep the lessons interesting.  Therefore on occassion I may slip in something unrelated to their syllabus such as logic-based riddles which companies may use in their aptitude tests during their hiring process, or mathematical workings that show bizarre results.

Education

Cambridge International Diploma for Teachers (2012), MBA (OUM 2011), B Economics (UM 1995)

Experience

I have been teaching in local private and international schools since 2001, including overseas teaching. I am well-versed with the syllabus for PMR, SPM, O Levels, A Levels and IB. I have been tutoring since 1993. My students ranged from Standard 4 to A levels students. My teaching style is based on understanding, analysis, concepts and questions. My strength is to simplify difficult concepts. The overall aims are building up understanding, application of knowledge and excelling in tests.

Tutoring Approach

The syllabus is broken down into sections that allow effective coverage within given time, aligned to class tests/exams. My lessons are made interesting with analogies, practical examples and links to daily life/real events, thereby making it one of a kind. My technique is explanation followed by questioning to check the student's understanding, demonstration and culminating in the student's unaided problem solving. Assistance, support and reinforcement will be provided as necessary.

Education

Bachelor in Language and Linguistics

Experience

I have more than 10 years experience in teaching adult and international school mandarin. In the past 10 years, i have tutored over 100 students of different ability levels which are mostly expatriates and international students ranging from 6 yr old to 60 yr old. Besides daily and conversational Mandarin, I’m also trained in preparing students for various International Mandarin examinations such as IB, HSK, YCT, SAT II Chinese, IGCSE, GCSE, GCE etc. 

Tutoring Approach

When tutoring students, i seek first to understand the students to know how they find the subject. I find it  important to have a good rapport and communication with  students to be able to understand how they view the subject and the difficulties in it. By understanding students’ weakness, working individually with them is hence more effective to help them develop on a different learning curve. My goal is to meet students where they are and take them where they need to go.

Bachelors of Creative Technology (Hons.) in Theatre

Experience

Previously, I was a Theatre Educator at Pusat Kreatif Kanak-Kanak Tuanku Bainun and a home English tuition teacher to two Korean primary school students. I am an English tutor for Women's Aid Organization. I also teach speech and drama to schools on a freelance basis.

Tutoring Approach

My approach varies depending on the student’s needs and learning style. 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 the more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continuously.

Experience

I am a professional pianist and a music educator specialising in one-to-one piano lessons. I have completed my diploma in ABRSM and earned a Bachelor Degree (Honours) in Music, majoring in piano from the prestigious Goldsmiths, University of London. WIth an extensive piano teaching experience, I offer performance-based or exam-oriented lessons according to student's needs.

Tutoring Approach

I strongly believe to the idea that performing well on the piano comes from one's inner passion and I have a specific method to nurture and cultivate the required skills and interest. Normally, I cater my lesson plans to each individual but I also emphasize heavily on the foundation of piano playing, because this is crucial for my student's to develop the necessary piano playing technique in the long run.
