Education

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. Thank you. Happy learning!

Tiffany B. Zhang

We have been 30 months with Sofia now, recommended by our neighbour. My kids are both in junior and high school. Started with one subject, then we added other subjects under my kid's request just because my kid would like to her stay longer. 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 managed to fine-tune my bad Japanese accent into standard English and Mandarin under Sofia's coaching.

We are Canadian expat living in Kuala Lumpur with a special child. We had tried a few private tutor and we were happy that Teacher Lee managed to handle my daughter who is willful and needs much patience and grace. They got along well after a short while and my daughter turned out like Miss Lee and always looked forward to having more lessons with her.

Leah

I'm Japanese pre-university student in Malaysia, through the recommendation of my parents' friend, teacher Lee helped me a lot with my IELTS and English communication problems. Lessons are very relaxing, easy and enjoyable. I highly recommend teacher Zara Sofia Lee as a personal tutor.

Mina O\'connor

We are Irish/Malay family with 2 boys. I was recommended by my Singaporean friend to Ms. Lee, learning that her daughter scored full A under the guidance of Ms Lee. We had Ms. Lee for exam preparation. She is a honest and dedicated teacher, who is direct and straight forward to the points in addressing the progress and performance. She is trustworthy and we count on her for the learning matter. Thank you.

Tan Boon Hin

I'm a Malaysian business owner with limited formal languages communication skill. I have several English tutors at the same time, but Ms. Lee is the one who can teach me with multilingual explanation. She interviewed me in depth to understand my background so to analyse and gauge a realistic learning expectation with me. She is a strategist. She is also a punctual, dedicated and no-nonsense person. Now, she is also a private tutor for my wife and children.

Kim Ji Hyun

We are 2 Korean brothers studying in Malaysia. My younger brother failed in his English accessment test. As a result, he was unable to enroll into the school. 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.

Takanori Suzuki

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.

Janice

We are a Singaporean expat family with 2 kids, struggle finding good tutor for slow learners. I highly recommend Ms. Lee as a tutor.

Ms. Lee has the ability to connect with them and her talent with teaching simple concepts, as well as advanced topics. Ms. Lee has excellent written and communication skills, extremely organized and most importantly, responsible and reliable.

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.

Reviews

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

Charles

He knows how to let students understand complex grammar of English.

Ly

Timothy is a very passionate and creative English teacher. He personalises study plan according to my needs and weaknesses, and this has been helpful in improving my English. Attending his lessons is also never boring as he often comes out with different ideas in teaching.

Douwe Landsheer

He personalised all our lessons for me, which was great.

Eelin

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.

Natasha

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👍

B.Eng (Hons) Chemical Engineering

Experience

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

Tutoring Approach

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