I like the way Madam Anne (Teacher Anne) teaches and everything she taught me was very easy to understand. Madam Anne is also very patient and will guide me step by step depending on my learning situation. She is also very funny,humorous and also will make general conversation. Madam Anne is by far the best tutor i found throughout my high school years. I would like to recommend Madam Anne to any students who are interested in passing and scoring their Sejarah exam paper for SPM and STPM level. Madam Anne is very helpful in adding on some extra time for classes even though my parents have already paid upfront. Overall she is an excellent teacher,tutor,educator and a teacher friend. Thank you Madam Anne Duerre.

I love Madam Anne's teaching style. I really needed to achieve band 6.5 within that short period of 2 weeks, my father found Madam Anne on this website and there was a fast respond from Madam Anne for the classes arrangement and confirmation. Madam Anne offers IELTS packages but it is worth it as it's very comprehensive and helpful to me as a student. Madan Anne has a flexible method of teaching according to the students ability. Madam Anne successfully helped me to achieve band 6.5 ! Madam Anne is willing to helped me and gave a lot of support in terms of teaching and moral support in every class and overall. Madam Anne is very knowledgeable, skillful, dedicated, honest and helpful to her students. I recommend any student who wants to take IELTS to take the course from Madam Anne.

She is a firm yet very caring teacher and is able to answer any of my doubts no matter the difficulty. Not only that, but she gives a sufficient amount of practice and homework to ensure top class grades. She is perfect for any student or person wanting to clean up grades or start completely from scratch! I would very highly recommend Madam Anne to any student/person/individual eager to learn Malay part time or full time, academically or professionally. Madam Anne is a good teacher for people who want to start from scratch or improve existing grades. She gives a lot of practice and homework so its easier to score in exams.

I really like the way she made me feel comfortable especially with the things that I did not understand. Also, I like the way how she is confident with the way she teaches which in turn makes me confident with what I am learning. That is how I know that it is worth it to take classes with her. She adapts her teaching based on how the student is so that she knows the pace to go with a student. I would definitely recommend her to any other IELTS student to take her classes! She will give you extra exercises to ensure that you really understand the lesson and she will give extra time to explain as well.

Education

Bachelor's Degree, CELTA, Goethe-Zertifikat C1, TestDaF 5.5.4.5

Experience

Reach me directly on Fb ujoelee. Oder schick mir eine Nachricht, 0 1 3 7 4 9 9 6 8 5 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.

Alyson

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!

Koay

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!

Nick

I am of British national, staying in the UK and learning online piano lessons with Donovan. Great start, great teacher! Good first piano lesson with Donovan today.

Ashira Malka

I am learning online Mandarin (Kung Fu specialism) with Donovan; and I am a US citizen residing in the US. I have studied many languages with many teachers and his lessons are stellar and outstanding! He is very organized and tailored the lessons to my interest – which means his lessons really held my interest! Donovan is indeed an excellent teacher in many ways: He is fun, bright, attentive and as detail-oriented as you want to be! You get to pick your own level of detailed orientation within your own lessons and it can even vary lesson-by-lesson; I have never met a teacher like this before!

Joshua Chun Wah Kam

I am a doctorate student at an American University, currently doing a piece of research and writing a dissertation on Asian food, which requires the use of Cantonese. Donovan is an incredibly diligent, thoughtful, prepared tutor. His online Cantonese course is like a classroom experience, and he is both prepared for the course material as well as willing to follow up on more complex questions for the next lesson. His teaching style is adaptable to the needs of students (in my case, Cantonese lessons - I have a very specific research focus and he has been more than willing to accommodate). In addition, he blends some elements of traditional Chinese education with a western outlook and pedagogical style. Would highly recommend him.

Marc

I am a senior partner of a German law firm based in Germany; and I have been taking online legal English (English for lawyers) lessons from Mr. Donovan. I often travel between Germany and Kuala Lumpur for work purpose and his online lessons match this requirement. He is a very reliable teacher who listens to exactly what I want. He takes time for my questions and uses very good learning materials. We always have interesting discussions. This makes the lessons fun.

Steve

A positive and patient piano instructor that makes me feel good and tailors the online piano classes to my style. Mr Donovan is doing a great job in helping me to prepare for the piano examination of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM), London. In fact, I sat for and passed my ABRSM Initial Grade Piano Exam with the highest ranking of distinction on the first attempt, after having just seven lessons with Donovan. And I am based in the US and often travel to Beijing, China for work purpose. Highly recommended.

Alika Jean-Jacques

Mr. Donovan is an awesome Mandarin teacher. Patient and knowledgeable, with great energy to keep kids engaged. Highly recommend.

Amanda Black

Great class and a great teacher. Mr. Donovan is very well organized and encourages everyone to participate. He teaches lessons from textbooks and workbooks. The lessons cover speaking, writing, and listening. I love the fact that he makes kids repeat after him so that they are well engaged in the class. He makes learning fun. Great class, very enjoyable and I highly recommend it.

Malcolm

I am an adult enrolled in this mandarin class with Mr. Donovan. I am currently working in a medical field which requires me to speak to mandarin speaking clients. I took medical chinese language classes with Mr Donovan, it is conducted online which is convenient as I have a tight schedule due to work. Based on the classes with Mr Donovan, I can vouch that he is very passionate about teaching. Every class that he delivers are concise and he provides suitable materials for you to learn before classes. He is able to draw your attention by making the class more captivating in various ways. His professionalism is commendable because of the way he conducts the classes on time and well mannered in guiding me. Online classes with Mr Donovan are both practical and extremely convenient. I would recommend to anyone who needs to learn mandarin (At any level of mandarin and age) with Mr Donovan.

I am an adult learner who have been taking online class for piano practical high grade- Trinity syllabus for two months with Mr Kwan. I am a piano teacher. I teach piano beginner. I am looking to upgrade my qualification to higher grade before I take Mr Kwan lesson. His online lesson match my lifestyle, because I am busy and do not have time to travel to music center for piano lesson, I am glad to have online piano lesson to ease my burden to travel long way to music center. He is knowledgeable and will tell the story of the music score I am going to work on, help me to analysis the score for better music interpretation. He is generosity in extra lesson time given to me in his teaching. Song books/learning material given to me is good and organized.

Je M\'appelle Grace Lim

Patient, experience and knowledgeable. He will tell the story of the music /song before I start to learn the song, and analysis score for me, this help me interpret the music deeper when I am playing. He will suggest alternative way of practice the song such as using the block chords method to make the practice more efficient.

He is also very flexible in accommodating with my timing besides his busy schedule. I am able to play confidently despite having learned from him 3 months ago. I will definitely pass on the message to recommend him to my friends who would want to take up the piano.

Irfan

I am an adult. Working in the automotive sales industry. I am learning Spoken Cantonese from Mr Kwan. The lessons provided is through online video call. It’s been 3 months already since I started to learn from him. Before I join Mr Kwan’s Lessons, my knowledge of Cantonese was completely zero. After a while, I noticed that I could possibly understand my colleagues speaking to each other. it’s not that much, but that is what i can say good progress for me. I feel there is so much improvement week after week. this has been useful in my daily working life. Online lessons from Mr Kwan are very effective. Mr Kwan’s passion, commitment, dedication, patience, flexibility in lesson rescheduling, communication (clarity in lesson delivery), organization (notes/learning material given to me), professionalism (manners in speaking, answering my doubts and replies; timeliness in starting lessons), generosity in extra lesson time given to me in his teaching is way up to the standard and unexpected. His styles of teaching i.e. friendliness, engagement, hands-on & practical approach are very straightforward and easy to communicate. In conclusion, I would highly recommend Mr Kwan to be your Cantonese teacher. I believe his other lessons will definitely be the same standard and teaching style as well.

Fadzillah Ab Rashid

My 13 years old son, Adam is learning Mandarin with Mr Kwan. Adam is from Chinese mixed family who doesn't speak Chinese. That is why I went trough FB and found Mr Kwan. Mr Kwan makes Adam feels so comfortable and focus on what his teaching. I was impressed with the quality of his tutoring sessions. After the 5 -10 lessons from Mr Kwan finally now Adam can watch Chinese show with me and he understands and can speak Chinese in a very proper way. Adam really enjoy his Chinese class with Mr Kwan. He is really good to make someone focus on his class yet fun to learn!

Syuhaini

Very thorough in preparation of teaching materials and very attentive to details. I'm currently a student of Master's degree in MBA, studying English with Kwan. The teaching materials prepared are highly useful and relevant to my MBA Course. I can easily understand the teacher's teaching, the teacher communicated clearly and effectively to me. My 3 children, including a secondary school student, are currently learning with Kwan too. He is very patient with them. Lessons are fun and inspiring. Kwan also give me and my children much extra lesson time for each lesson. I and my children can easily understand the teacher's teaching very well. Teacher is able to pinpoint weaknesses, give advices and improve them. Thus, from my point of view, Kwan is very qualified and experience in teaching English to varied English levels of various learners. He is very dedicated and responsible educator who genuinely care about students' learning. I highly recommend Kwan for almost any level of English learning. Bravo!

Vinod

He is very dedicated to the teachings. He allots extra time on all lessons to make sure the student really grasps the weeks lesson, making it easy to practice over the week till the next lesson. I am an adult residing in Kuching , Sarawak and he is from KL, yet his online classes are so good that it is like having a real teacher beside you. He uses excellent audio visual equipment for his teachings so all online classes have been extremely smooth and with no communication disruptions. His years of experience serves well as he is able to render the lesson and acknowledge the mistakes instantly and provide immediate rectification. I enjoy my classes with him and hope to learn the piano in record time under his tutelage.

Syuhaini Ab Rahman

I'm a student of Master's degree in MBA, studying English with Mr. Kwan. Mr. Kwan is very authentic and experienced, he communicates clearly and responded attentively to my needs. His teaching material is useful for my MBA. Mr. Kwan also teaches my 3 children. There's a significant improvement on their English skills since taken the courses.

Tutoring Approach

I believe teaching is beyond imparting knowledge. Teaching is about building relationship with students. Understading their learning needs and create an individual education plan to fit their learning style. There's no one size fits all kind of approach. The responsibility of a teacher is to bring out the very best in them.

Experience

 

General Information

I have 20 years of teaching experience. I specialise in teaching Chinese-Mandarin, Chinese-Cantonese, English and Malay. I also offer Italian, Spanish and French class. 

English

(A) Business English I am currently teaching Business English to China Communication Construction Company (the company who built Penang Second Bridge and constructing high-speed railway in Malaysia), Defacto International Fashion Brand, and several directors and top managers working in tourism and hospitality line. (B) Exam Preparation I have 4 years experience in teaching Cambridge English syllabus, and therefore I am very familiar with the categorisation of Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Moreover, I can also help to prepare International exam such as IELTS. 

Mandarin

(A) Business Mandarin Preparing managers, students in communicating in business and office environment which main language is Chinese/Mandarin. (B) Academic Mandarin Professionally trained to deliver lectures to prepare students for HSK or any International Examination related to Mandarin-Chinese.

Qualified lifeguard certified by Malaysian Lifesaving Society (Bronze Medallion) and International Lifesaving Society (Belgium) and therefore can teach swimming.

(D) IGCSE

Tutoring Approach

Summary 1. Language Placement Tet 2. Understand the specific needs of students 3. Design relevant and effective syllabus 4. Deliver lecture and observe the development of learners 5. Make changes when possible according to feedback 6. Make sure that the lecture is delivered in enjoyable and effective manner. For language teaching, it is important to take care of the usage of language (grammar, vocabulary), cultural and social aspects and the pedagodical methods when transfering the knowledge to the students. General and specific usage intended to be used by the students when commanding the language will be taken into consideration. To strengthen the memory and impact of learning, appropriate stimulation method has to be used including activities, graphic etc.  Many people take language learning too easy and think that it can be managed in short time. Unless you are a genius, it's very rare for a person to be proficient in a language with just 10 - 20 hours of learning. Experience and research shown that to complete a typical CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) level will need at least 80 to 200 hours. There is no short cut in learning a language and students have to be patient and know what you want for sure. Or else, it will be a waste of time and money.

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.

Asya

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.

Wana

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.

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.

Su

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!

Tabina

Overall, I was very satisfied with the class, the required fields were covered thoroughly. The fact that the concepts were explained in accordance to marking scheme was was most helpful for me. So,10/10

Giam

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!

Anaan

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.

Sara

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!

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 examiner’s 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.

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.

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.

Irfan

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.

Justin

Great lesson outline and overview of what is to be expected; well prepared and concise sessions would recommend 10/10

Jt

Timothy has assisted me a great deal in preparing for my IELTS writing examinations. He’s 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 he’s 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!

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 Tim’s place as it’s 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.

Yong Yi

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!

Viannie

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!

Varrhynshar Sebastian

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.

Joanne

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!

Govindraj

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.

Syakir

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.

Liew

Timothy managed to improve my writing abilities for my IELTS exam from a 6.5 to 7+ with just 4 classes! I highly recommend him if you are taking your IELTS exam.

Harsha

His friendliness and gentle approach towards teaching children to create an immediate positive environment for learning are effective. Teacher Timothy provides a detailed report on his student's strengths and weaknesses. This proves to be very helpful for students as well as parents.

Merlynna

Very professional, amazingly friendly, most proactive and exceedingly warm. From my 9-year-old daughter, ‘ Please add - very kind, made my education so much fun, the best’.

Jieunhur

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

Joven is also approachable, thus I am not afraid to ask him questions to help clarify my understanding of the subject topic. All in all, his a well-educated teacher who is able to give assistance to those who want to ace their subjects.

Mr. Joven's teaching in IGCSE Physics is exceptional—blending theory with hands-on examples, making complex concepts easy to understand. His dedication to ensuring every student grasps fundamental principles is commendable. In Biology, his contagious enthusiasm for life sciences makes learning enjoyable, even in virtual classes. His innovative teaching methods keep me engaged, and his availability for questions outside class hours shows his dedication to our success. Thanks to Mr. Joven, my grades in Biology and Physics have significantly improved, and my appreciation for these subjects has deepened. His passion, expertise, and commitment make him an invaluable educator.

Experience

I have been a private tutor since September 2015. I focus on English Literature as it was the subject that most confident. I don’t have a specific teaching style, my teaching style would depend on the student itself. I attend both Primary and Secondary School at the Kuala Lumpur Alice Smith School, a British International School that implemented the Cambridge Edexcel syllabus. I went to further my studies at The Otomotif College; after completing my GCSE examinations and a year of A-levels.

Tutoring Approach

When it comes to new students, the first lesson will always include simple exercises involving both tutor and student. By doing this, the student will settle down quicker and becomes less anxious when it comes to classes; at this stage, it is also an opportunity for both tutor and student to get to know each other. The next step will be a 90 minutes past paper test. This gives me a rough idea of the student’s strengths, weaknesses and time management when it comes to examinations. Teaching is never an easy job; especially when it comes to handling young children. A private tutor has to be very patient and must put ego aside; not all tutors can do this. Being an open minded individual with experience handling young children in the past as a sitter, I have learned to be patient when it comes to handling a young child. Motivation is important when it comes to education, if the child is not being motivated, then the child gets bored and becomes lazy. By rewarding good behavior and putting effort into their work, it makes the child push that little harder. That being said, I also believe in discipline and punishment should a child misbehave or are disobedient. Therefore should a parent disagree with my methods, I am not the tutor for you.

Experience

A professional Arabic language teacher with more than 9 years of experience teaching the Arabic language for non-Arabic speakers. English is my second language. I have a Masters degree in Islamic studies, a bachelor's degree in Quran and Islamic studies, a diploma in English literature. Courses and classes offered are comprehensive and integrated that includes all skills required for the student to achieve maximum use of the class/ course from reading, writing, listening, conversing and comprehension skills. The student should be able to read, write and converse in a 2-month time if an intensive course is chosen.

Tutoring Approach

Standard Modern Arabic is used in teaching Arabic language and classes are prepared carefully to suit each student level from beginners to advanced. Each class contains a different type of learning skills, starts with flashcards, printed materials and interactive videos. Courses are comprehensive, teaches writing skills, reading skills and conversing in Arabic, in addition to listening and comprehension. Teaching methods are an integrated interactive way to achieve the maximum benefit of each class and the course overall. Quran and Islamic studies are taught separately as the Quran requires correct reciting, reading and tajweed while Islamic studies topics vary from fiqh, Tafseer, ibadat, etc.   English Language classes will be based on open syllabus book with modern communication skills, writing, reading, and listening.

I am and Australian-born, native English speaker and trained Australian English teacher recently relocated to Kuala Lumpur. I have both tutoring and teaching experiences within Australia and Malaysia. I have experience teaching in Australian Secondary Schools teaching both English and English Literature to secondary students. I have extensive knowledge teaching a range of secondary students in British and Australian curriculums. I have coached and prepared students for English exams in particular IGCSE English Lanuage and English Literature, AS  Levels English Language & Literature and A levels English Literature & Language . Throughout my teaching experiences I have developed teaching and learning skills to guide all students to analyse literature, write comparative essays, creative writing – poetry, narrative and short stories, academic essays and literary analysis in a well formulated manner. I also have the proficiency and experience to mentor and prepare students through university foundation studies courses as a means of preparation for academic writing, essay structures, research skills, citing and referencing academic works, note taking, tutorial/university discussions and presentation skills. Lastly, I have experience-preparing students for IELTS exam in both Australia and Malaysia. The main skills focused on throughout IELTS exam preparation are; Writing: techniques in persuasive, argumentative letter, report writing and essay structure. Reading: scanning, skimming, visualization and comprehension skills. Listening and Speaking skills: building vocabulary, confidence and clarity while speaking and responding to questions. I also have experience coaching general, business and academic English skills in all areas of reading, writing, listening (conversational) and speaking. 

Tutoring Approach

My aim as an educator is to create in my student/s a deep understanding and confidence in speaking, writing, reading and listening to the English language. My teaching approach and techniques is catered to each individual student/s needs and learning styles. My teaching approach is allowing and encouraging students to enjoy learning English and to think for themselves, using real-world examples in approaching the English language. I believe through setting mutual high expectations with student/s high results are achieved. I start from understanding the strengths and weakness of student/s and build on their strengths as a foundation for learning. With exam preparation I forus on past/example papers, this allows the student/s to work through and become comfortable with reading and understanding exam questions and formats. I give great emphasis on the vital skills of reading, writing and speaking such as essay structure and technique, scanning, body language, logical thought and confidence.

Experience

i lived in Japan for 7 years before. I have one year experience of teaching Japanese at Japanese language center. This has probably been most important part of my life in terms of informing what I find to be meaningful and important work. I also have experience on teaching  English to Japanese students. Once you know someone better, you can help her learning on something better. Since my very first teaching session I've grown not only as a teacher but also as a person. I am not only a teacher to them but a friend and sometimes even an inspiration.

Tutoring Approach

I use a book that is easy to use for the beginner. I believe that the more time you spend hearing Japanese, the more comfortable you will become with the sounds of the language. The more comfortable you are with the sounds, the better you'll be able to identify and comprehend whole words. Every minute in the classroom is a minute spent practising Japanese - and the best thing you can do when you are learning a new language is practice, practice, practice!
