Bachelor of Arts in Economics

Victor attended Taylor's College Sri Hartamas and studied IB, and SMK Damansara Utama for SPM. He obtained 41 points for IB, inclusive of 7's in Economics, Mathematics, and Physics, as well as perfect scores for the Reading section of the SAT (800), and 800 for Mathematics Level 2, Chemistry, and Physics. After a turn of fate, he then attended University of Chicago's Bachelor of Arts Economics program (highest number of Economics Nobel Prizes in the world) and became a beneficiary of the now discontinued JPA Ivy League dan Setara Scholarship (RM1.2 million value).  Having worked in consulting, published journalistic articles, as well as working in human rights and having traveled to many different countries across the world, Victorhas a strong interest in foreign affairs, the interconnectivity of knowledge, and in developing the talent of everyone he meets and encounters.  He is incredibly passionate about teaching students, even more passionate about learning, and most passionate about helping his students to become learners that want and desire to learn with a purpose in their lives, and has assisted students in achieving their dreams and changing their lives by attending their dream universities and attaining their desired scholarships. Victor enjoys reading extensively, to the point that he was featured in the Star Newspaper in 2019 for reading 350 books in the course of a year to date (including Les Miserables, War and Peace, and Crime and Punishment) before completing 400 over the course of the year. 

I Can Manage Both

I believe that when it comes to education, there is no compromise.

That's why I am committed to providing the longest-term value possible to you as you pursue your educational dreams, and will provide you a tailored educational experience from start to finish that suits your immediate needs and addresses your goals from the outset.

I am intentional about creating an enjoyable and productive educational experience in which my students are motivated to succeed and understand WHY they want to succeed. It's not logical to force a student to study - they have to want it. That's what I firmly believe.   In my lessons, I help my students to develop critical thinking skills through two-way conversations that help them to use their material effectively, examine the practical implications of what they are learning in the real world, and to enjoy every single second of the process. During my one on one classes, most of my students ask me for specific topic reviews, and students also frequently come to me with practice exams, which I solve on the spot and explain to them.   My online classes are usually the same, although they are conducted over Skype and make use of resources like screen-sharing and a digital whiteboard. In both cases, my approach consists of a mutually agreed schedule that is worked out between me and the student that is designed for efficiency, allows us to assess our progress, and helps students to understand rather than memorize by rote.  Students usually request for 2-6 hours per week prior to their exams, and before sessions, we will come up with a plan of what they would like to cover or require assistance with. Having said that, my experience with different exam varieties and student learning styles is extensive, and my tutoring approach tailors to each student accordingly depending on the student's needs first and foremost.   In both my in person and online classes, I use a combination of Google Drive, Skype, and Zoom in order to populate materials to my students as well as solve problems live.  For scholarship interview and admissions preparation, I arrange mock interviews for my students during which I quiz them both on technical and behavioral interview questions, and also help students with tailoring their applications and consistently show their best side to admissions committees through a series of informational interviews and application review sessions. If you engage my services, you will secure my commitment to provide you or your child a custom-made and well-tailored educational experience from start to finish.   Admissions Counselling & Skills Mentorship Students under my guidance have been admitted to the following schools: Boarding School admissions: Andover, Exeter, the Lawrenceville School University admissions: University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Yale University, Princeton University, University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins University, University of California, Imperial College London, Kings College London, Princeton University.
